oh boy, SNACKS!

Taking a break from house stuff this afternoon, didn't bring a cutting board:

Yes, that is a paint tray.
No, we haven't used it for paint (bought two, only used one).

Yes, I plan to return it.


It's Snowing Right Now

Looks to be just shy of an inch accumulation.


in case you haven't heard yet... part 2

We bought a house! It's 50 years old! Closing was end of March, and we're taking April to paint, pack, move. We've had numerous requests for pix, so here are the ones from the MLS listing, with the previous owner's furniture.

Curb appeal!

Living / dining rooms:


Guest room:

Second bedroom / office:

What was originally the garage has been converted into a master suite. Master bedroom:

Fireplace room:

Master bath: (the mirrors did not convey)

Backyard: (obviously, not a recent photo!)

We'll post more in-progress photos, eventually. Right now, too exhausted from painting.

happy birthday, Paul Bob!

We'll be spending it over at the house. Work goes well, but slowly. Photos soon.



happy birthday, Bob!
