I can't believe that June is almost over already. These past two weeks have really flown by fast.

We now have the shower in and working.  Found out that 12 sq feet of the floor under the old one was rotted out and had to be replaced, that was a little more than I thought would need to be repaired.

I have about half of the ceiling done with the tongue and groove paneling. We also installed the new light today.

I still have not figured out what to do with the walls yet.  One says paint, one says paneling of some sort. Of course, I said it is unique. Let's leave it as it is.

No one thought was a good idea. Of course, they knew I was kidding.

Then it will be the floor and how to cover it. Linoleum has been mentioned and probably is the easy way of going.

I will be happy to get this room finished and have some time to work on the novel and use my Amateur Radio. Of course, then we will most likely start with the next project. We have a window that needs replaced, not just the glass, but the whole window.

Okay it is your turn, please leave a message below telling us all what you are up to this summer.  We would love to hear from some of you.

Don't be bashful; tell us what is keeping you active.


Back to work.

Until next time.

Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to this and write something. There is a lot going on lately.  Now that school is out for the summer, it is time to do the remodeling of the rooms that are schedule for this summer.

The project is a new make-over of the laundry/shower room. We are putting in a new shower that will be bigger and hopefully not leak like the current one. The big problem with the leak is the water is getting into the filter box of the furnace. Not cool! We spent today putting in the tongue and groove paneling boards on the ceiling and are about a fourth of the way through.

With a house that was built in 1890's, it seems there is always something that needs to be repaired. The stairs will be the next big project. Not looking forward to that one.

I am hoping to get all this done in a couple of weeks so I can do some writing.

What are your plans for the summer?  Leave a message below and tell us what you are going to do.

I really would like to get the re-write of the novel finished this summer, it has been taking too long and needs to be done so I can go on to the second one and re-write it as well.

Of course, when the youngest granddaughter is here, writing is hard to do. But, as anyone with kids or grandkids knows, they take preference. She will be two in August and is very active. It is funny how she will try to talk to you but you can't understand a thing she says.  Oh, she does speak some words, but most is gibberish.


Okay, now it is your turn. We all want to know what is going on with you and how well you are doing. Just leave a message down below and tell us what is going on.


Until next time, enjoy the warm weather and have fun.
