It has been a while since I posted, but we have actually accomplished a lot. We finished the planter boxes for the front. Pruned back the roses. Our cacti are gigantic! Stripped a door down. and then painted said door. Cleaned up door hardware. Watched our mums from last year bloom like crazy. We have also completed a bunch of trim work in the house after stripping, sanding, staining and polying them. I will post pictures soon! We are hoping to get to some other projects soon. Projects on our plate: -Painting kitchen table/bench to match the kitchen cabinets -Painting kitchen walls and trim -Pulling up laminate in kitchen and refinishing the wood floors in kitchen -Woodwork in parlor We are hoping to check several of those off before January. Wish us luck!
