Working like dogs

What a weekend! I cannot list all we did. It seems to have lasted a week.

I do remember climbing to death defying heights to wash our windows in the vault.
We almost finished the main bathroom. As far as finished you can do for cheap. The floor will stay for a while. Found out if you use flood lights in the can fixures it actually puts off light. Bought a knob for the closet door and had to go back for a longer screw. 2 trips for a $4 worth of items. Yes yes, this is my life!
We painted some beige, painted medicine cabinets and 1 window sill. Only 27 more to go! Added more items to the list..sanding and painting cabinet in bathroom. Lets bring the date up from 1978 shall we?

Once again... Pictures!

Travis brought home a dog!!! Not for keeps.. she was running down a busy road on Sunday. Now I get to take her to PAWS. It was nice having a dog for a day.

Garden preweeded. Remind me why weeding on a 80 degree day is a good idea?

Our first salad! That salad spinner really kicks ass. So tasty and light and fluffy.

My first pepper!

Tomatoes got taller stakes and retied. Now when they produce, we may be able to get between them

Cutest little cherry tomatoes

And most importantly! All the cinder blocks are gone! Craigslist really amazes me. We made about 300 dollars total selling stones. The last batch we sold cheaper and the buyers pulled the stones straight from the patio, and took them full of dirt. The best part was they helped with the labor portion of levelling and hauling gravel. Now we have all gravel. Phase 2 complete and now on to adding sand and stones.

Stay tuned for more pictures. The pressure is on to finish up some of these items before August 20th for the 3rd Annual House warming. There will be a few seperate house warmings, but this is the first date. (For those reading this that did not get the invite!)

  1. Your garden is amazing! I am envious in every single way. Some day when I grow up, I hope to move beyond my containers and have a garden just like yours. :-)


I always appreciate input, advice, ideas and telling me I'm doing it wrong. So chime in!
