Hm, for some reason, the first picture isn’t all of it so it looks like the second one. We put in a new sink and faucet, desperately needed–and some photos of Christmas dinner and Christmas Eve dinner as well. Only took my husband three days to install a garbage disposal and I will spare him and you the obviously silly things he did that caused this… But it is now finally done. And he did not have to call the plumber.
Plans are to sand down the countertops and oil them, paint the bathroom, and possibly some new couches. Pretty soon. But we will see. Some inexpensive projects, moving the INdian rugs up and the braided rugs down–Mom and I had SOME similar tastes. We both loved primitive antiques mixed in and metal of all kinds and wood. But she liked country (she was an antique dealer) and I like a more eclectic contemporary mix. She did love Indian rugs and all so she would not be upset I’m moving her good one to the living room and the braided rugs to the guest rooms, I don’t think. I like things much more sparse than she did, but I still think she would approve. Eventually a new stove and fridge and a bathroom redo, some new walls in the basement. Lots of things to work on. Little at a time.
Some new art. My daughter will take a picture of our Inukshuk up a the property for over my bed, and I might bring an Inuit painting from the camp for one wall here. Have her do another canvas for upstairs there. Something horizontal rectangular.
Appraisal supposed to happen this week, so we’ll do a good house cleaning on Monday.
Since I’m sure you wouldn’t want me to leave you with just a cheerful post, let me add that Biden the idiot has just passed a bill saying children can go against their parents and be vaccinated (I’m sure this comes before scooping them up and re-educating them–outrageous — and of course, they will soon be able, as little children to obtain sex hormones–my God); and another bill that expands the eviction moratorium to landlords and properties NOT just subsidized by the government. Which if he also kills the economy, will kill us. We own a small modest apartment complex. WE ALWAYS get screwed. I am sure then the government will offer “help” and will partially own these apartments, the means of production. Their aim.
But my daughter is going to get them all tested and maybe come next weekend for the superbow.
But I am about to do some yoga and soak my head in the tub before making some filets with béarnaise sauce and some sautéed shrimp–baked potatoes and broccoli for those guys.
