Arrgghh, that's how this kitchen project seems 
to be going to me! My husband is doing 
everything after working an already 
exhausting day for REAL customers, 
so I can hardly complain.


Actually, I always get annoyed when it comes
to this part because there is a thin film of white
dust on everything in the house, no matter how
hard we try to keep it contained.

The finish sanding was done yesterday, and the
plan was to spray texture tonight, but after doing
last minute concrete today I think my husband
should just hit the hay and plan for it tomorrow.

My job was to move the light as he needed it.
Wow--what would he do without me?

Look at this cool set up that went by early this morning.
If you click the picture it should get big so you can see
that there are 3 trackhoes and several vehicles on this
barge. It looks like they are heading out to do some big
work on one of the islands.

Oh yum, the Salmonberries are getting ripe! I think
I will try making jam this year.

It was 70 degrees at 7:00 pm, so my husband went out
for a drive to see if the bears were out. They were.

Saturday we went to a good friend's 70th birthday party.
It was a lot of fun and she is a BIG fan of purple, so the
entire party had a purple theme. The guests even had to
wear purple! They had a drawing for a gift basket filled
with (what else) purple goodies and my daughter won.
Here you can see the birthday girl is giving a big thumbs
up with purple fingernails!

Nothing is sacred in our house.

Salmon berries? What do those taste like?

LOL, on the purple party... I think there is a book called purplelicious.

Um, I'm guessing the bike could outrun a bear but still... :-O

I have been meaning to ask if you are interested in lady head fashion thimbles from avon. They are older and have been sitting on a shelf at a thrift store for a while. It is a complete set and they are old(er).

Sorry I have to leave this info in your comments but I did not see any other way to contact you.

I talked to the manager at the thrift store (it benefits animal adoptions and foster care). They have the price set at $45 but said she would take thirty. She told me she has the box for it but I neglected to ask what condition it was in.

I found a pic for you of what they look like on ebay here:|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1205|240%3A1318|301%3A0|293%3A1|294%3A50#ShippingPayment

I don't remember the rack being as shiny or with the scroll work but all the ladies seemed to be in good condition.

Let me know if you are still interested... I'll even pay some of the shipping :-D

I remember when our bathroom got a face lift (a COMPLETE redo really) -- it seemed to take FOREVER. And the mess? Unbelievable amounts of dust and crud. But . . . those gritted teeth vanished the first time I eased down into the deep, deep bubbly lagoon. Later as I stretched out into the double shower under a waterfall of lush water . . . aaaaaahhhhhh . . . I laughed. It was all worth it. Hang in there.

Keep yourself occupied with parties and rides and salmon berries(????? -- do a post on those babies ~~ they look simply delicious!) and all the rest in your glorious AND COOL part of the world. Upper 90s today have kept me indoors until later when we will splash away in the pool without fear of sunburn.

(70s . . . just imagine that?)
