I think Grendal has grown to enjoy posing for photos. She used to run when I got the camera out but now she hams it up for me. Maybe she's reading the blog while I'm at work and now realizes her world-wide fame.
Well, not much news to report from my parts. I have worked on the house some. Not nearly as much as I need to but sometimes there are just some other things more important. I did go by and price some cabinets the other week. Just the base cabinet for my pantry would be $2,000 if I order it. I knew it was going to be expensive but didn't think that much. So, looks like I may be building all or part of the cabinets myself. I will probably build the cabinet box and order the doors. They are generally affordable.
I'm not sure what my work situation is right now. We are getting very slow. I have just a couple of short projects to finish this week and then may have to take some time off for a while until we get more work. I hate to say that I would like to be laid off but could certainly use the time on the house. Of course, I can draw unemployment but that is miserably low here in Alabama so probably would not allow me to buy any materials for the house. But even that's Ok as I have some materials stored up and can scrounge quiet a lot.
It continues to rain heavily here every couple of days and all the trees and plants are sprouting like crazy. The dogwoods are starting to bloom. The onions I planted are growing well and the brussel sprouts have picked up production. I hope to be able to harvest much more food from my gardens this year.
I'll try to get back soon with some more posts. If the rain will hold off today I am going to try to run a little more exterior trim that The Man and I primed and readied yesterday.
