Outside, it looks like this: But luckily, inside looks like this: Looks like a sweet pea to me! And another one! (A blurry sweet pea.) And the alyssum in the background is going gangbusters. As soon as it warms up again…we’ll be ready 🙂 Continue reading Spring Snow
No fun projects to report here. I watered my “seven new perennials” today. Does that count? Ok. I guess I was fishing for some ‘cred. I also stomped all over the fluffy areas of the weed mat where the weeds are growing underneath. Hopefully they’ll get the hint, but I’m not holding my breath. This weekend will be relatively uneventful. I’m looking forward to it. … Continue reading Mid-Week Rambles
We got some things done over the weekend. Hubby fixed Leak #1 in the dishwasher. Then, after the dishwasher sprung Leak #2, he fixed that one too. He also busted his tail to paint the baseboards in the living room and reinstall them. Now we just have to paint and reinstall the dining room baseboards, touch up the wall paint in the living room, and … Continue reading Adventures in Homeownership

And we still need to put the dining room and living room baseboards back on. I can’t wait to have a quiet dishwasher!! But despite those little things, the big stuff is done! Here are some before pictures real … Continue reading We Have a New Floor!

Lovely vinyl from under the dishwasher: Hardwood entry was ripped out. Each board was stapled multiple times into the floor. It was the hardest task of the whole weekend to get rid of this little 4×4 foot section… Anyone need to use the restroom? Whoops! I guess you’ll have to hold it! No.restroom.for.you! How do you like the new location of the refrigerator? We’re … Continue reading Chaos Looks Like…
