And I don't have to do it this time! Lately we've been taking the "Y" out of DIY and just paying people to get it done. This was supposed to be finished last summer. Before I had the baby. Yeah...
But at least it's finally going to happen. The crew will be here sometime after 11 am, so we emptied the entire upstairs into the living room.
Thank God it's temporary. I cannot believe there are people who live like this all the time. Granted, they probaby don't have 2 large dogs, a cat, a boxful of chicks, and a baby, but still.
And speaking of the boxful of chicks... The coop is nearing completion! [insert happy dance here] We're done painting except for the trim that we will put up over the exposed ends of the hardware cloth, and then we just have to staple up the wire and glaze and install the windows. The girls will be in there within a few days. I can't wait. They're very cute, but the constantcheeping is making me crazy. I've never had a bird as a pet, and I can now promise you that the only birds we'll ever have will be yard birds. There's no way I would tolerate this all the time. 3 weeks is plenty.
I finally got the tomatoes planted (Thanks Mom #2!), and I'm thinking that another 6 plants wouldn't be a bad thing. I'm going to have romas everywhere in August, but I plan on making lots of sauce. I still need to get a pepper plant or two, and maybe potatoes if I can find them. I'm kind of late... As usual.
