It was another long day. Lots of painting by Randy and Devon. Carpentry by Rylan. Flooring installation completed by Daryl and Chris. Backyard leveled by John and Vince, sod and landscaping done by Duane. I put thousands of plants into the flower beds today.
I know this news won't be too exciting to anyone but me - there was enough sod delivered (at no extra charge to me) to do both the back and front yard. Buddy Budderson will lay the rest of it tomorrow after his exam. Isn't it nice to have teenagers with work skills?
I'm dying to show you photographs but at this stage, it would just give too much of it away. I think I may make you wait for the reveal. Then you, dear reader, will have the full impact of the before and after photos. I think painting will wrap up on Monday. Hardware and bric a brac installed Tuesday, light fixtures on Wednesday, cabinet doors and touch ups on Thursday... I have an open house scheduled for Saturday, June 28th but I won't be here! I will be on va.ca.tion.
Andrew is my sweetheart friend. We've been buddies since Grade 9. He used to practice doing my hair and makeup... and even making outfits for me! I was his model when he was in hair school, thus my fabled hair history of being blonde, brunette, darker brunette, redhead, blonde, yellow, darkest brunette, burgundy, blonde, highlighted, lowlighted, beehived, crimped and braided.
It was Andrew who insisted that I go out with Veto. Andrew had a sixth sense about us. My only regret is that I didn't make him one of my bridesmaids. Well, you know what I mean.
