All the small things


I have been very productive doing all of the little things recently that need to be done. Once all the small things are done I will feel better. I can then move onto the KITCHEN! 

Here is the front door threshold. Kev's Dad made it. The space was uneven so he had to make us a threshold. It turned out great!! I then grouted the edge and its finished!

Attempting to do some more yard work. I have not the slightest green thumb. Slowly learning. Next summer will be better. Promise. Here is the bed I ripped out a bunch of dead bushes with dead Ivy on them. I planted another flower pad. Don't know if it will grow since the other ones never did. Maybe I should buy some flowers to put over for now.





 Someone give me free outside plants/flowers!!


Once the tops of the steps gets a new baseboard things will be pretty much done. At some point this summer I will start the kitchen. I have enlisted Megan's help. I want her to make me fabric for my curtains in the kitchen.I am thinking 50s/retro/housewife maybe pink (not pepto pink) or seagreen. I also need to paint the kitchen. It will make such a big difference. Maybe even look into a new counter top depending on prices. 

Todd will also be coming over at some point to help with plumbing issues. A pipe down in the basement is dripping. We also need to figure out how to maintain our water softener.
