The sun room aka covered in porch, & my bedroom were in full production this past week.
I also had Bill here to help with the installations of both. Oh what a difference window dressing makes!
July 1st - Canada Day, the love/hate relationship continues with Boris & Tommy. Here they're snoozing together in the sunroom.
Now for something I'm more familiar with.
Bill had a very productive week on his visit. He installed a full length screen door on the side going to the new porch, removed the sweating toilet from the downstairs bathroom & installed the energy efficient one from the other cottage in Eel River. Replaced that toilet with a new lined toilet, painted the ceiling & walls in the sunroom, mowed both lawns, it was the second mowing when the John Deer died & he had to take it into town for repair(not a happy man, but did look at bigger newer tractors), cleared the laneway of bushes growing inward, changed out my washroom light with a stained glass one, removed tack lighting from the kitchen & installed a fan & light, installed the small A/C in the laundry room, did electrical work to make an outlet work again, moved pictures around, installed the cows head way up high in the great-room, installed an A/C unit upstairs, moved my desk, two dressers from the wee cottage to here, installed the curtains & blinds,installed door lock on the patio door, placed trim around the kitchen island, installed the doors on one of my Billy Bookcase, shopped in town at the Kent for his next trip, & I'm sure more as he was in the basement for hours moving 'his stuff' in order to cut with the saw.
He arrived back from a week in China on a Thursday in Toronto, then on Friday he was with me & the following Saturday I took him back to Moncton to fly back to Toronto for work on Monday. He had quite the vacation here with all his talents, he's a Jack of all trades! Bill even had time to read on his Kobo before bedtime. Did I mention how much I love this man! & you can see why. And with his sons the apples did not fall far from the tree. As a family unit we are quite dynamic with all our talents. God truly has blessed us. Bill just says that you get ahead by being lucky or working hard & in this family we work hard. I know I was born a Saturday Child, with the saying 'will work hard for a living.' I'm also a Virgo, a bit of a perfectionist.
I found a saying that made me think of our family - 'We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.'
Awe August & the 'Dogs Days Of Summer', it will be a time for rest & relaxation...some days more than others! The list has already started as Bill will now have 'man labour' with the son & grandson.
He plans on a new roof for my studio, a new tub surround installation in the wee cottage, freezer brought up from the basement( I was not strong enough for the job)& I'm sure he'll find other things to do. It's not all my doings you see. LOL
Well that was another week, hope you too had a good week too. Mine just move too fast!
