While we were on our cruise, we had someone come in and finish the drywall, mud, tape and texture the walls and ceiling. It was so nice to come home and have that done. We then primed and painted all the walls and have since completed almost all of the trim, installed the wood floors, installed all bathroom fixtures, tiled the bathroom floor,installed all the lighting, assembled kitchen cabinets etc. These pictures show some of the progress. We do have it listed by owner right now and have had some bites on it. Keeping our fingers crossed that the right person will come along and it will work for them. By the end of the weekend, we should have the bathroom completly done, all the trim with final painting done, the cabinets all hung in the kitchen and possibly have the carpet installed. Again, keeping fingers crossed for that too...
Random picture of the work table in the living room, soon this will all be put away.
Once again proving my inability to maintain my blog, I have to lump everything together in one post to get back on track. I really think if I could lose my addiction to Bejeweled, I would have time to work on this blog? (I guess that's just the competitive nature in me, wanting to be at the top of the "leader board".) So, here we are, with my last post in mid-October and it's already into December with snow on the ground. You might think we just had nothing going on, but indeed we did, so maybe I can use that as an excuse that I was just soooo busy, but then we are back to the bejeweled thing... a vicious circle!
On the catamaran in Grand Turks. My first time snorkeling and it was a little difficult to get used to. Once I got the hang of it though, it was pretty spectacular. The area we were at was next to a drop of over 8000 feet in the ocean floor. Brad managed to dive down and get a shell for me, no idea what it's called, but it's the one genuine souvenier I have from our trip that I liked the most.
