just because it's breakfast....

This weekend was Mother's Day and I spent all day Saturday sewing with friends...it was wonderful...Rich spent Saturday at the house priming the sun room and painting the basement and laundry room doors.  Sadly I have no photos... and no excuse.  I had the camera...just forgot..

I do however have photos of the rest of our Sunday work...


The BEST... It makes adding your drawer pulls so much easier...



Tools all laid out...

Two down and only 22 to go...
LOVE THEM!!  And it's so much easier to open those cabinets.  The two bottom drawers on the right need some washers for the handles to fit.. The holes are drilled..so it won't take long...



Around 9 this morning, I asked Rich if he wanted some toast.  We had stopped sewing Saturday for few minutes to head across the street to a farmers market.  I bought some cranberry, walnut, date bread that I thought would be awesome toasted with some cream cheese...  I was told "no, I don't want any toast and you don't either".  Huh? What?  Apparently we were going out to breakfast at 10am with all the kids and grandkids... lol    I had ordered coffee with cream and this little cutie wanted to know what was in the little pitcher...  We told her it was cream and did she want to try it? She was hesitant, so we told her cream is what they use to make ice cream...that's all it took..
She drinks skim milk at home.  She thought this was HEAVEN!! lol



MILK MUSTACHE!!!
This big grankids eating breakfast...
 And just because it's breakfast doesn't mean you have to have eggs or pancakes!!  I got a bacon cheeseburger and onion rings!! lol


After breakfast they all followed us back to the house to see the progress...  And then we got busy...

I painted the trim of one of the front doors..

Rich swept each room ..

dry dusted all the walls...

and vacuumed all the bedrooms...
and the hall and bathrooms...
We are sleeping in the living room again...
Next weekend is the BIG FLOORING EVENT!!!  We will head out to the house on Friday to sweep, dry dust and vacuum the living room, kitchen and dining room and be all ready when our volunteers show up on Saturday morning bright and early.

I am always amazed at how much you have done already and how well you have done, too. It won't be much longer now!

Gives new meaning to "Got Milk" doesn't it? She is a cutie!!!
How does she feel about cows? And why in the world is a little squirt like that drinking skim milk? I can imagine she would think it was heaven... My inlaws used to have a cow (Molly the cow) and they milked her all the time and what with some of my hubby's sisters still at home and all the baking etc... my MIL did they used the whole milk all the time! So when I switched hubby over to 2% he was alright with that... and then as milk got more expensive and our kids were older and moving out.... we switched to 1%... more for us then for anything. Ever so often we get cream for this that and ta-other and yep... it is Heaven! I can relate!
I tell you whip that stuff up with a bit of sugar and put it on some strawberry shortcake.... talk about your Heaven on Earth!!
Sooo, are all the rooms going to have the same flooring? Color and all? Bet your getting excited!
Oh, by the way.... Happy Mother's Day! Hope it was great!
