another week gone - this one busy and productive. tim decided to start the bathroom renovation - i thought we were still in the talking stage - so we are about 1/2 way through with the demo.... there are large plate mirrors - 3 of them - that i want to save and reuse probably just 2 of them. they have to come off the walls before we can start anything too wild in there. the main focus is to use a closet that backs the bathroom to install a tub. so the contents of that closet had to be shifted and the place where they landed required another shift and the piles disrupted in that shift....but it's all done. everything has a new place. of course, once you start shifting its amazing how many other, unrelated things call for attention and the job seems to multiply before your eyes. but it's done. and with warm weather around the corner i needed to get these last few "inside" jobs done before the outdoor work claims my free time. i've ordered some plants. i've got projects formed in my mind. same story, though. there are certain organizational details that need attention so that when the time comes i'm just plain ready to start the fun stuff. i have done a few things in the garage but honestly it's been too cold too spend much time out there. i'm hoping for an honest spring. in past seasons we have gone from 40/50 to 70/80 degrees. too abrupt. too soon. we'll see.
