Day 9 Recap

Today didn't start smoothly as we discovered a leak first thing in the corner of the kitchen.........there was an ice jam on the corner of the lower roof which was creating the problem.  When they put our siding on a couple years ago they didn't do the flashing right so it has to be fixed.  Jim had cut out a corner of the ceiling yesterday to do a temporary fix that he thought would divert the water outside but the ice was stopping that from working.  This has been some brutal weather the last couple weeks creating problems everywhere.  They got up on the roof & had to put some ice melt down as the ice was so thick.
I went out this morning to order my faucet so they had this much done by the time I got home.
This cabinet was a pain to put in!
How do you like the carpet in my sunroom?  It's called drifting snow!  A little cold on the tootsies!

They had to bring "Suzy" - the corner cabinet in through the french doors!

Davey is cutting off all the shims now everthing is in place.

So now all the cabinets are in place waiting for someone to come to template the counters...that is scheduled for Friday morning.
Davey is holding the ladder while Jim gets the rest of the ice off the roof.

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!"

Love Val
