And moving is the big story as we have been spent the last two weeks organizing for and actually making the move. So we are now living in the house!
Once again, family and friends came through for us and pitched in with much generosity and good spirit to help us with the move.
Just in time for the big move, Dean's truck sprung a leak in the fuel pump, so it is out of commission.
Here is Dean taking the pump out...
Let the unloading begin!
Here comes the second run of the day.
Jono secures the load.
And more unloading...
Laila and Jono did so much that there was relatively little left to do.
On Saturday, we finished up with some help from Joe, Rich and Kate.
Kate packs up the kitchen.
Dean and Joe work on the mattress.
Loading up the truck.
Loading Kate's mini van.
Little Miss P is not amused by all the bustling about...
The guys strategize.
Taking a bagel break.
A Jimmy Hendrix moment.
"Hey Joe, where you going with that gun in your hand??"
!!Thanks a huge bunch to everyone who helped!!
While moving was the major focus, there was still plenty of other stuff going on since my last post. Among them:
The lighting Saga continues
Ted has taken an interest in our lighting challenge, and he stopped by with an LED that he wanted us to try in the recessed cans.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall...
We installed a mirror in the bathroom.
Day one, putting in the board which will hold the base of the mirror.
Day two, the actual mirror goes in. We got this mirror from a free-cycler!
I started painting the wood that will become the finish baseboard trim.
