Noreaster 01142008

Here's a picture of what we've received so far today in Maine. It started at 8:00 a.m. and this picture was taken at 4:00 p.m. This is looking off my front porch towards the road (my front yard). If you look bottom right you can see how much snow we've gotten, it's sitting on top of a plant pot I forgot to take in. Also, the area between the post and the farthest tree was bare yesterday!

How I Spent My Sunday Afternoon.....

Here are the two birth announcements that I made into wall hangings today! They are for co-worker's from my previous job. Sue H. had her son and four hours lady Sue M. had her daughter. It took me about six hours to make the two of them....and I can feel every minute in my back! I had to run to WalMart to get some material and buttons...ended up going to Waterville to Joann's Fabrics to get the buttons. Now to finish the dowels and get the pieces to them!

Bathroom Vanity Remodel

Things are changing, looks-wise, around my house!!!! Jeff built AND INSTALLED (I figured it would sit in the bathroom for at least one month!) a new vanity, a new shelf over the vanity, and boxed in the PVC pipe going up the side. He also installed a closet door (pre-made but it matches the vanity perfectly!), and framed it. WOW! He also is going to put in a medicine cabinet with lights! The only other item left is to finish framing the door, but the sheetrock sticks out and he hasn't decided how to deal with that. But WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : )

I also went to Dave's Appliance yesterday and bought a new stove and refrigerator (freezer on the bottom!). I got basic white. They will be delivering and installing on Thursday of this coming week! Jeff was talking about making new cupboards in the kitchen last night too. I'm not sure what has gotten in to him, but I hope it doesn't stop!!!!!!!! : )
