What a long couple of weeks it has been. I spent most of the week stripping old wallpaper, (directions & photos to be shared shortly!), preparing several rooms for painting, painting and helping tile a floor. It was a nice reprieve from the hot roofs we've been working on, but it looks like we'll be back on a few more starting tomorrow.
The kids have been out of school for a week and will soon be heading on a trip of their own to spend time with family members they haven't seen in ages. It'll give me the chance to pull up all the tiles in my kitchen and change the color of the grout, lol. I hate Beige/Sand/tan- *shudder*. It'll be interesting to see how that goes. If I discover an "easy" way to do it, I'll be sure to share it in tips-n-tricks!
The weather has been holding steady in the high 90's for a few weeks now.
The garden is doing beautifully! I love mound gardening as it is completely effortless. Yesterday I picked a dozen or so cukes, several summer squash and a couple large zucchinis. I'm looking forward to nice fresh tomatoes, my plants are loaded, but none of them are ripe right now.
How is everyone doing these days? The blogs have been rather quiet!
