Five weeks of the endless drone of the cidadas but they are finally gone! I can hear birds again. All kinds of birds! I knew the other night that it must be near the end because I could hear the bullfrogs down near our creek. Finally on to other things!
A few little other things have been happening around the house. During the great remodel last summer, the guest bathroom had to be gutted because of the height of the floor with the new floor. Not to worry, it needed it. This is how it has looked for a while. Now that school is out, Dear Hubby can get to work again. All the parts have been bought. Dear Hubby is laying tile today. Whoohoo!
We did finally decide on sconces for the living room. I don't know why it is so difficult for me to make a decision. When you have precious little money, you want to make the right decision the first time. I hate returning things.
Note the crown molding is up! Boy, are we slow.
The bookcases on the right have been painted. They were built over 10 years ago. The ones on the left were to be built right after that but it never happened. Now I have both to decorate. We have plenty of "stuff" to put on them. I just don't want them to look junky. In an ideal world, I would have a collection of pewter dishes. Can't afford them right now so I will have to decorate with what I have.
Thanks to those who have stuck with this blog even though I don't post much on here anymore. I hope to rectify that soon. After all, it is summer and I do have Dear Hubby around until high school football starts!
