I've been working on a appearance "remodel" of my bathroom. It was still the 25 year old original builder's bargain basement basic everything...beige tiles, basic oak vanity with beige formica top, unframed wall mirror and butt ugly $5 light fixture, smaller than normal bathtub...etc. I ran out of budget before I could do a real remodel so I'm doing a budget refurbish...painted the beige tile gray, painted the oak vanity black with some leftover sample paint, replaced the drawer & door pulls, made a nice shower curtain & replaced the light fixture. I just had someone replace the vanity top with a grey/white granite & updated sink & faucet. Now I just have to patch & paint the walls and hang a new mirror & I'll be done until I save enough for a real remodel.

Vanity before & after

nal_individual.asp?blog_id=6411166

I got 15 quarts of juice BUT...........................
I think the grapes could have been a bit riper ! The juice is still Wonderful but not as rich as I would like ! I had to pick them as it is so dry here that they were drying out and getting hard !
No rain scheduled until next week !

Time to pick Grapes and make Juice to Can ! They Smell AWESOME !


I went to check on my grapes, yesterday, and you can smell them...My yard smells like a Welches Grape Juice Plant !!! That's when you know when to pick them. I will juice them in my steam juicer and bottle it in Quarts ! Good project on this rainy day ! (other than picking them through the rain drops !)

I will post pictures as I go !

So This was my last project... I tore down an old rusted metal shed and built a playhouse for my son from the ground up!!! I'm really proud of it b/c I used it to teach myself framing, roofing, drywall, exc. and my dad (who usually helps w/ these kind of projects) didn't have to help me at all!!!





The inside I used drywall and painted w/ chalkboard paint!!!

My son (13-years old) and I are tearing down my old chicken coup and building chicken tractors. They are portable coups that can be moved so the chickens have new grazing area daily.

Thanks. I do still have my son here but he will be going soon after he graduates from college in a couple of years.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Dorothy...I hope you get some peace...That has to be so hard, I can't imagine...
Not to sound trivial, but maybe get a puppy or kitty...Just something to keep you company. I know it really helped my mother. My brother got her a small miniature poodle after years of her fighting it. It was the best thing ever for her. She had something to share her Love with.

Are the cracks in the siding or framing or the sash ?
Maybe google your question as I'm not sure how to fix your problem without seeing...
Possibly a paintable, expandable (non-drying, pliable) silicon caulk.

What are you doing up at 3 in the morning ?

No I still am digging the old posts out. I did get a box turtle out from under my house today and will have to seal up the hole that it dug. I will be cementing it so that it will not happen again.

Need help with a problem that I have. It seems that I have cracks around my windows and I did try to load the image but it won't load for me. I need to figure out how to fix it but not sure how to go about fixing that. I am on a limited budget so that means that I have to fix it and not get someone to fix that I have to pay.
