And here is how you plow your driveway when you don't have a plow, don't know your neighbors, and call everyone you know to see if they know someone that knows someone that might have a truck with a plow. I call it the redneck plow and here is what you do. First you drive to town and get another snow shovel. Then you park the truck on the county road and dig the driveway out at the end. Just a spot as big as the truck.. THEN...You put the truck in 4-wheel drive and start backing down the driveway. You don't go slow..you gun it and back up about 10 feet, then shift into drive and go forward, then shift into reverse and go back another 10 feet.. You just keep repeating this until you get close to the house. Our drive is about 100 feet long so it took a bit. I stood on the road and watched and dang it the camera was in the truck so no video.
Here are the tracks in the driveway..
And here is the front porch after shoveling... we didn't do the whole walkway, just a path to get to the house.
And here is proof of the snow... isn't that ridiculous...
Anyway, it was nice and warm inside and I got right to painting. I will be ever so happy when all the painting is done.
|More window trim...|
|a floor and baseboard..|
|a working toilet|
|a vanity with running water|
|and a mirror with lights...|
It's our first room that is almost completely done. I love it.. I need a towel rack above that toilet and a bit of something on the wall..and I just bought a free standing toilet paper holder to put in the corner..
We did get some of that trim put up... and I did some painting on the window sills and sashing.
And there might have been some pizza and cupcakes on Saturday...when somebody might have had a birthday..
