Two More Go Up

Two more windows went up today with still a few more to go. I'm also going to paint the house on the outside, so we're in the process of prepping the exterior for the paint.

This whole revamping experience has been a Nightmare on Elm Street.

Also, is anybody interested in a small dog who is in cahoots with the forces of evil?

Yes, the landscaping in the first pic above will also be overhauled. I'm just not sure whether I should put in new grass or desert landscaping.

Again, if you are interested in an (evil) pup, please let me know.

Have you thought about getting that tricky ball of fur blessed? You have Franciscans in Las Vegas, I'm sure they'd do it, especially if your explained the situation.

Good luck with the renovation work, and watch your lungs, I can only imagine what the dust is like.

Yes, I've thought about having the little guy blessed, but I was going to wait for St. Francis' Feast Day to do it. However, I like your suggestion even more. I will seek out the Franciscans here in my neck of the woods instead of waiting for S.F'S feast day.

YES! The dust can be overwhelming, so I'm taking precautionary efforts to make certain no one inhales that stuff. Take care:0)

I love mullioned windows, we did them in a house we renovated and they looked great.
Keep holy water on hand and douse Toby with it whenever he gets out of hand!

Poor puppy - he's too cute to be bad.

Thanks:0) I'm not done yet but I'm definitely getting closer. The granite counters were installed in the kitchen late last night, but they still have to be sealed. Tile floors need some final touch-ups; the house has to be painted on the outside; the landscaping still needs a decision; plus a million other little loose ends.

And then on top of all that, Toby. No such thing as exorcisms for pups, right? :0)


He can almost talk, I tell ya. If I can get to it, I'll post a video of his temper tantrums.

You need a local "dog whisperer".

House is looking great!

Auntie A-

I need a shrink for Toby, since I was already told he needs PROZAC.

The house is looking much better, but it's far from being completed. The kitchen looks fantastic, with some repair still needed, which includes painting and varnishing.

Tom: Ship Toby to Terry.

I couldn't do that to poor Terry! :0)
