So. Remember this morning, with little peepers bounding downstairs to bond with the daddy on Father's Day? In case you didn't, here's Little Miss enjoying a delicious breakfast thumb with Daddy at the computer.The cunning plan for today was to invite our friends Brent and Janelle over - Brent to help with installing the corner windows in Missy's bedroom, Janelle to hang out and help with entertaining little peeps.
Well, the plan worked like three Croats drywalling: we installed all three windows, got the bedroom cleaned and the place picked up - though, holy smoke, do I have a load for the dump! - and even managed some vanity projects like Peeper's rope swing for his soon-to-be tree house...BTW, I like the tool belt - gives that "Father's Day Project" kind of Village People macho man look, eh?. Everybody pitched in, we had a lovely lunch, and lots of hugs and kisses were exchanged (well, except between Brent and me; we opted for a manly sort of backslap hug. I mean, not like we're talking Brokeback Mountain here, we're just not that kind of demonstrative guys, OK?) and everybody had a good day except poor little Miss, who couldn't nap with all the racket until Mojo took her for a ride in the car. But here's the finished product: just needs Tyvek and siding!The interior is a huge difference:
Look how sunny the bedroom is now. compared to the nasty little dark hallway we started with back in February, neh?
I'm so happy I could just bite myself!
It wasn't all work and worry. We managed to play on the hammock a little, and the Peeper got his rope swing into action...And how about this: Mojo's project, these beautiful dragonflies outside the side door to the porch!The house is quiet not, and everyone is in bed, but I think the Peeper said it for all of us:
"On second thought, I'll have another drink."Hope you and yours all had a great Father's Day Weekend!
