The house is a little further along than it was last time I showed you pictures. Now there is siding on the front. The scallops are in the front peak.
The north side saw progress too.
I have to say I really love the scallops!
I spent all day doing things for the house. I moved a truck load of thing…more stuff from the basement. In fact our basement here at the farm is almost empty. Ya-hoo. I’ve been trying to take at least a few boxes of things each time I go. That way once we move for real, it won’t be quite as taxing.
I spent the rest of the day working on sanding and mudding the sheet rock in the two spare bedrooms. It’s a nasty job but one that has to be tackled. I was worried how my wrist would take it but all is well. I have more to do tomorrow so I hope it hold out. I bought a second support for my wrist. I’m wearing one 24/7 and that has been really good for it. Hopefully it will make it through the move.
A family friend stopped by the house today and brought me 10 great moving boxes-all with lids. Then Karl came home and had stopped at the grocery store and he brought boxes too. My walls are starting to get bare. It’s a happy and sad thing.
That’s the state of the house as of tonight.
Today I am thankful that Hubby and I are resourceful. I would be so unhappy if we couldn’t do all the things that we do. I would hate to have to wait around and hire people to do all the things that we need done. As much as I hate working with the sheet rock I am thankful that I can do it. We’re not perfect at things but we do acceptable work and I am good with that. In the upcoming weeks I’ll be testing my skills more than I care to…after the sheet rock comes painting..LOTS of painting!
