numbers...

4200 - the number of American dollars it took to get this...  the slab for Rich's workshop.   We rolled  two coats of concrete sealer on it to protect it and make it easier to sweep.  The workshop will be delivered within the next few weeks.  The building is situated right across from the garage and in front of the house. 



32 - the number of minutes it took two adults to locate the water line in the basement... it was hiding under the steps and above the duct work...





13 - the number of ice cubes in the first batch...




6 - the number of lakes we saw here.. Sunday evening we decided to take a bit of a break and drive through this conservation area.  You have to hike to the creek and that certainly wasn't on our agenda so we just slowly drove through and looked.  






5 - the number of  frogs turtles that were sitting on this rock as we drove by...  they jumped as soon as Rich put the truck in reverse to snap a photo.


3 - the number of cans of white spray paint it took to transform this formally red night stand..  I am now on the lookout for a used queen size head board to spray to match.  These are for the guest room. I also need to decide on a quilt and drapes for this room.  The room is pale yellow (think butter), dark floors and white furniture... any color combo's you think would be pretty?  I would like something without gray since that's what our room will be.  







1 - the number of laundry tubs we installed this weekend.  Next weekend we will put a couple of shelves up there...




Rich had to remove a couple of sections of the walkway.. and that one step from the porch because..


 when the concrete guys come back to remove the concrete forms and pick up this..


(which sat in the driveway all weekend), they are going to make a SIDEWALK!!  We will actually have a sidewalk from the gravel drive to the front porch..  you have no idea how exciting it will be not to have to sidestep the dog poop to get to the front door..and if those dogs poop on my sidewalk heads will roll!!


And that was our weekend...

EDIT - not sure why that one part of the text has a white background. I have tried everything to get rid of it so just know that I am not yelling, complaining or asking you to find me a headboard. lol Just can't get that highlighted text to go away...

Things are really moving along. As for the guest bedroom, I'm not fussy, so I'm sure whatever you choose for the bedding will be just fine with me!!! LOL

O.K. so much for the head board.... I thought I had one for you! LoL....
5 frogs sitting on a log.... sounds like one of those kids songs... "There were 5 little frogs a sittin on a log... one jumped of.... there were 4 little frogs a sittin on the log... etc.... ". LoL.... what can I say, I've just spent the last 2 weeks tending my grands.... 3 kids 5 1/2 and under.... I'm tired.... I wonder why? Oh, and that's another number... how many times can a kid (3 yrs old) ask why? I'd say about 300 or more! After a while I just kept say'in.... cause gramma said so! He already knows gramma gets cranky... ask him... he will tell ya! LoL....

It took a certified plumber and $400.00 to locate our water line to hook up our new refrigerator and we were left with two holes in the downstairs bathroom wall. What were the previous installers thinking anyway? I am enjoying seeing your progress on your "new" house and I suggest blue with your yellow guest bedroom. That's the color of my bedroom. Wonderful area-Missouri. I lived in St. Louis once-went to 7th grade there. I love that town and state.

I suggest red for the guest room. Are you a fan of paisley??
Love what you have done with your house. You live in a beautiful part of the USA.
