Day 21 Recap

Usually things do not go according to plan with us & seeing today depended on two going according to plan I was sure one or both wouldn't pan out.  The skin for the outside of the cabinet was supposed to be delivered to our kitchen store yesterday & the other piece of crown molding was supposed to be delivered to our house by Fed Ex some time today.  Popster & I left in Jim's truck to pick up the skin & by the time we got home Fed Ex had delivered the other package.

Here's Davey finishing the touch up on the crown.
This is a better picture of the floor.
I managed to get one cabinet finished after they left today....the rest has to wait.

It's looking really good in here but there are still some things to be finished on Monday.  They have to rebuild the wall & shelves that separate the eating area from the living room & do the outside.  We are definitely on the home stretch!

This little guy decided he would use Jim's ladder to get up on the deck.

It didn't go completely smoothly today....poor Jim managed to fall in the driveway between the two trucks.  I'm not sure what hurt more......his arm, his leg or his pride.

 I think he was trying to upstage Albert "Stagger"!

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!"
