Yay, lots of progress to report on the kitchen this
weekend! Saturday was very productive with
surprisingly few interruptions. It has been kind
of rainy and blowing outside so the time was
better spent indoors.
First the underlayment flooring was laid down. Alaska
doesn't require this flooring, but my husband put it in
anyway for warmth and stability.
Texture was sprayed on next. It may look easy, but
this hopper is filled with wet mud and very heavy.
You have to hold it up and spray carefully in a
pattern to get the best looking coverage.
And finally primer. The texture dried pretty fast with
fans going and heaters on. My younger daughter cut in
with a brush and my husband followed with a roller.
Next job will 2 coats of pure white paint for a nice,
glossy finish that can be cleaned easily.
In his spare time my husband fixed the ditch
that the gutters off the addition pour into. He
fixed this parking spot at the same time so I
can park the Jeep here without feeling like
I am rolling down the driveway.
I made this cake this weekend for our Pastor's 50th
birthday. His wife wanted something to do with his
age without it being a black or over the hill cake.
He is an avid hunter so we decided it should be a
camo cake. He loved it! I made the head a
separate cake of Tiramisu so they could lift it
off and eat later. The kids at the party went
crazy eating the Marshmallow fondant grass.
Only the wire glasses were not edible.
Big day Tuesday.. our older daughter comes
home after her month long trip...
