Real Life Fixer Upper
Today, I'm off for a winter day. (I can't call them snow days where we live because there is hardly snow. Our roads just ice over when the rain freezes.) I had promised an update last week, but because I've hit the nesting stage of my pregnancy, I can't bare to sit still during the weekends. For the first time in my life, I enjoy things like washing dishes and doing laundry! However, I told myself I would relax today. So, after I cleaned the bathroom, changed the bedding, did another load of laundry, washed the remaining dishes, vacuumed the floor, and put dinner in the slow cooker, I am kicked back on the couch playing Sleepless in Seattle while I type this post. (Also, I've been thinking about food for at least an hour.)

While I've been working inside our little cottage, Walter has been building our second bathroom, fixing termite damage in our wall, and mapping out the plumbing. Plus, we've been running around picking out stone for our fireplace, deciding on a wood burning insert, and trying to figure out what kind of front door to purchase.
This past Saturday, we got some family members to help us clean up so that our window crew and mason can come actually reach the places they need to reach.
|Dad and our sis helped us sweep up what wasn't picked up by Walter's cousins a few days ago.|
|As you can see, we didn't work them too hard.|
As exciting as all that cleanup was, it almost felt like Christmas when Walter came back with a truckload of our fireplace stone. We had to go up to camp to pick up some strong backed helpers to help us unload it. I didn't take any pictures of the stone out of the box. That'll come later. As in when the fireplace is being put up.
