Friday, January 23, 2015 – The rain Thursday night and this morning was heavy enough to stop the framers from working today. It was also very cold and windy.
Roy and I headed to Hammond for our follow up cortisone shots in my shoulder and his knee. We always wait at Dr. Chaisson’s office far too long, but today it was zip in and zip out. Man we liked that and our body parts are feeling way better!
From there we went to Lowe’s and tried to buy a lot but came away with just four smoke alarms, rye grass to give us some greenness to the yard around the RV and lastly we bought enough stones to make a nice campfire pit.
Then we were on to the big shopping at D L Cabinetry in Hammond to put our deposit on cabinets and granite counter tops for the kitchen and two bathrooms.
EVERYTHING CHANGED From what we picked out a month ago and were absolutely sure that’s what we were going with, to what we actually signed up for today!
The granite we wanted for the kitchen was no longer available so we picked out something new. Once we got the final quote on the kitchen cabinets we realized we could get a much better grade cabinet and still stay within the budget. Also, we went from all of them being the same cabinet styles to having different cabinet styles for the kitchen and the two baths! The only thing that seemed like it was going to survive from our original choices was the bathroom granite. After changing the cabinets and their color changing we didn’t like how it went with the bathroom granite so we changed that also. It was surprising how all that worked out.
Saturday, January 24, 2015 – Roy jumped right into building our campfire pit this morning. Everything he does has to be just so and that showed in the time he spent on the pit. He put the first ring together and took it apart numerous times before being satisfied. Some of the dirt around it had to be dug out and leveled, then spread. My big contribution was breaking up some of the big lumps of dirt and supervising his work of course!
The cows came out to see what was going on and you can see them in the picture below. We sat out there a long time this evening enjoying our first fire in our new pit. Roy has made nice progress creating our own little RV park here in Amite!
We are looking forward to a visit from my sister and brother-in-law tomorrow after church. Their first visit to our new home, can’t wait!!!
Hopefully the framing will get back in full swing on Monday and having a full week of sunshine should help us move the construction along really well this week!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
