Thursday evening and Friday, hubby worked on painting the paneling. I had started it, but he took over. I worked on and finished the bathroom cabinet in our room. I finished it yesterday. Hubby attached the new hardware today. We are super excited how it turned out. I will be painting the main bathroom cabinets next.
Last night we went to Lowes and looked at the flooring. They have a much bigger selection of hardwood/laminate than Home Depot. We discussed the pros and cons of them. 
We went back to Lowes, and we found flooring we both like. We also picked out some linoleum tiles that we like. They are bigger ( 18 inches x 18 inches). We will put those in the kitchen. It's not large, so it shouldn't be too difficult. We want to lay them diagonally, just for a different look.
Today we were suppose to have trees removed, however it began to snow. They got one down, and stated they would be back later this week. I am fine with it. I felt bad for the guys, the weather was awful. We did have to move the hens in the garage, as we had to move the dog kennel they were in. Once the trees are down, then we will build their permanent pen. The temps are supposed to be down in the low twenties, and we are suppose to have significant winds tonight thru Monday morning. I have lots of pictures, my goal is to upload them this week.

Busy Busy

Things have been moving along here.
We replaced our vanity sink and the light fixture in our bathroom.
I am working on painting the cabinet. It makes all the difference in the worLd.
We are hoping to take down the trees this next week.
I had a job interview yesterday, and another one today. We will see what happens. The one yesterday said they start out for $3 less than I asked for. That puts me at $10 less an hour than what I was making in Seattle. It's a night shift. I don't think I'm going to take it. I am OCD when told, interview is at 1030, and you're 25 minutes late getting to me.
The weather has been beautiful. The temperature is supposed to drop, and it's suppose to be windy this weekend. I will probably bring my hens in the garage, since they are in the dog run with tarps over it. Monday was really windy, it was a pain keeping the tarps down.
I'm off to get my day going.
I will post pics later...

Project from this past weekend

Yeah, the outdoor and indoor projects never cease....

Short post, the pictures I don't think do enough justice ( probably because I was busy working and not taking them)



Something was living in there.....
At some point and time

 A small pile of chippings..

 All the junipers gone.
 Only a pile of chippings remain..
 They originally started out as four plants.

 One of the "stumps"
 I wear a size 7 1/2 shoe, to give you an idea how big the stumps are
My neighbor was so cute, he was grinning from ear to ear, because he was having to cut them back so they wouldn't block his mailbox.
Apparently last year the city came out and fined the homeowner due to the condition of the yard. He listed the house a month later.
