Everyone worked really hard today. The boys did a grand job hauling away all the rubble from the well pit. They loaded it up into the wagon and wheelbarrow and took it down to the riding arena where we are having trouble with erosion. J15 worked on demolishing the upstairs bathroom. Yeah, I know I said we were done with demolition. This isn't because of mice- this is because of UGLY!!! Someone covered the entire bathroom in dark pine paneling: floor, ceiling and walls. There is only one window that faces North, and it looks out onto the wall of the garage! The room is incredibly dark and hideous. We will bring up one of the sink bases from the basement and will drywall and paint the walls. We are also planning to put in a light tunnel- a small version of a skylight- to bring in more light. It isn't a big area but they used tongue and groove boards on the walls and it is taking J15 a while to pull it all down.
I also used my new range for the first time today. I11 wanted soup for lunch today so I lit a burner to warm it up for him. He was beaming that he got the first thing cooked on it. V did get the framing done for the island. We pulled the cabinet from the basement but it needed some repair work before we install it so it is out in the shop for a day or two.
We also took out all the boxes I packed yesterday, plus a laundry basket full of kitchen stuff. I did actually manage to get the laundry sorted and put away on Friday afternoon so I could use the basket to carry out some things that I'm not likely to be using any time soon. I really don't see myself using my springform or bundt pans in the next few weeks. And on top of all the boxes- we took out the sleds! We have a kick-ass sledding hill that should be fun next winter.
Tomorrow is back to work for me. V needs to do some writing for his job and then will likely spend the afternoon out working at the house. It looks like the weather for the next week will be warmer and sunny- no more rain for a bit. J15 and I will be baking bread, cookies and making cheese tomorrow night for her English project. Just when I thought things were beginning to get under control....
