For each task to be completed there are 3 others that have to come first and 3 that lead up to each of those and so on and so forth... at least here at Castle Debauchery aka The Twilight Zone.
For instance--the notebook I have all my photos stored on had a fan failure. I get 1 more chance to turn it on and transfer the data but 1st I have to bring home an external drive from work! All so I can write the letter D. I am bursting forth with important D's to Document! Along with e, f, g, and all important K for Kitchen.
So I will take you on a little journey--but lets get a snack first shall we?
My 2nd tomato of the year--first one was sliced and eaten long before I thought to take a picture--It was only a possible an Early Girl. Since all the tags are blank in the garden--they are all mysteries this year. And I am more than okay with that!
I do believe this is a Black Sea Man--since it was my first tomato last year, and it resembled it inside and out. Look what I have learned! In just a years time!
This is Black Beauty--my first and only Zucchini so far.
Here are my first ever carrots and a beet!--I needed to thin my carrots and couldn't resist bringing them inside--they taste great! As for the beet--maybe I'll play with that tomorrow.
Onwards to my story. Like I was saying--every project to be completed needs to be preempted by 3 others.
I have some terribly embarrassing seats in the Jeep at the moment. Smittybilt admitted to having had a manufacturer use less than adequate material in these XRC racing seats--and REPLACED THEM FREE! Smittybilt you rock! I was so surprised to actually receive customer service when I complained, as these seats were only 3 years old. The original Jeep seats were 10yrs old with NO holes what so ever when we replaced them.I should have them installed by J I hope!
So I have been painting every other day as it takes at least 48hrs to not be tacky--touch ups, touch downs and some sanding and then flip another 48hrs later... I moved most of them upstairs finally today:
|Either I missed a spot--or that is a reflection on the 2nd from the left!|
|I am positive these are reflections.|
I actually finished 7 of them a month or more ago, but 3 of those went to the next project so I decided to wait to install them all at once. Also I had to rearrange my kitchen cupboards to my liking and figured it would be easier without the doors on. I was right!
This leads us to this section of the living room-previously full of kitchen boxes--I had to unpack those in order to make room for the other boxes from the garage!
Oh boy--I see many a trips to good will and garage sales in my future!
It has been 18 months since we have used any of this stuff!
|Time to purge!|
|See anything you want?|
|I am NOT putting these back up! No way, no how!|
This is sorta like "airing dirty laundry" but only really dusty boxes.
So now the cupboards are 98% painted, hinges are done, kitchen is rearranged, all ready to finish what I started last November.....
Just as soon as I install a new man in the cupboard....
|Oh Wait--did he leave a MARK in my cupboard? |
Damn it! Not again!
(Hi Mark!! Thanks again!)
I mean.... have the men install new wood under the cupboards!
I have just painted this tonight!! (Yes-its Friday! Woooo Party!?)
48hrs and I can put things in here and install hinges and doors too!
Oh Golly--and the handles I bought 18 months ago!
Our tool shelf has runneth over, plus it is still in the kitchen...
Travis gets to build a work bench in the garage!!!
Imagine that! A real garage I can park in and he can build me things in!
|Had I zoomed out-you would be blinded by the floor AND|
see the big pile of tools that no longer fit with out rearranging the whole shelf,
How can he relax at a time like this!?!!?!!?! There is so much to do!!
|Ok ok--It was Friday night--I will let him relax for now.|
And here is how I relax:
Here is a shabby picture of a happy little accident.
I needed a place to put these for now so tucked them in where they may get water.
This corner is now my favorite in the whole garden--even though it is outside the garden.
I did buy that external drive--so D should not be Delayed too much longer..
but time is funny here sometimes at the Castle Debauchery!
