Day 4 Recap

After the mess we've had for the last couple days I never expected the room to look this good in one day. In spite of the fact we had another 7-8" of snow over night Jim & crew were here by 9:00am with the sheet rock.

Check out Jim on stilts doing the taping....he totally amazed me at how quickly he was able to do that big room.  I asked him if he ever fell off the the stilts.....he said only twice because it hurts so much you learn in a hurry how to walk on them!

He did that whole seam ....24 feet one "swoop"!
They had to cap off the old plumbing before they put the last piece in.

Here is the room with the first coat of "mud". According to Jim he will come back tomorrow & Sunday to get the other coats of spackle done & they will paint on Monday. The cabinets are being delivered Mon & he plans on being able to start hanging them on Tues.......I'm so excited!

BTW the reason Molly is in the shots at the end of the day is because that's the only time she's allowed in the room!


  1. Will Jim work in Florida????? This chap is amazing. The kitchen looks like a room again.

  2. are right....amazing! He did say " Have hammer, will travel". I would offer to send him your way but I don't think I'm ever gonna let him go!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
