But we did get two other things done yesterday that have been nagging. This light fixture was a rotting gold mess. You can see the line where the original fixture was. We still have to paint this bath. Then I have to clean out all the old caulk from the shower and redo. I feel like we are really making progress on the house. It is just so expensive to get these little things done.
We also had the outdoor window to the kitchen fixed. When we had the kitchen remodeled a few years ago, they replaced and enlarged the kitchen window over the sink and then just left a hole in the outside of the house. Just this gaping hole, what a mess. Anyway I went out with the handyman and dug through the wood pile and found several shingles from the project and he was able to feather them in and patch. Now all we have to do is paint.
Yesterday I took a large bag of spag/marinara sauce I had made and frozen out of the freezer and made a large pot of pasta. We ate on it last night and I will take this to my friend for her dinner. I will make a batch of french bread later today. I have to think of something for dessert and may just go ahead and make a cake.
The littles are here and they are fighting over the same toys, what fun. It is tag team wrestling here at grandma Kim's.
So today's plan to move forward is, survive the littles:), bake bread and a dessert, take Addy to dance, drop off dinner, hem two pairs of suit pants, finish some curtain panels, and paint all the edges and corners of downstairs bedroom.
Tomorrow I will be busy in the shop and I will need to move all the furniture out of the downstairs bedroom and paint. We will also have to take a load to the storage unit. So much to do. Yikes. I would also like to get the downstairs bath done this weekend. I would just like the basement to be done so I can concentrate on the upstairs.
Upstairs, it is the kitchen and the master bath that need the most work. We also have a great deal of painting to do in the front room and hall and then onto the outside.
It is always an adventure here, but when you are trying to get things done and move forward without spending a bunch of money you have to expect the adventure.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
