As most of you may know, we got a dog. Wyatt is an 8 month old blue heeler and the center of our world…besides the house. She outsmarts us most of the time and is hard-headed. I wanted to get a dog for protection when Evan has to go out of town, plus I have missed having a dog since my last one in college. We love having a companion and having something to care for and look after. I’d definitely say she is a stepping stone for a baby ONE DAY. As for now, we are enjoying her playfulness and learning how one another “parents” her.
Everything else with the house is starting to fall into place naturally. We had a long stand-still with projects because we simply couldn’t find the time and energy to do it. Lately, Evan has been working his magic with our plumbing system and attempting to upgrade it. The details are rather confusing to me so I’m not much help in that department. All I’ve really done to help is stand on the back of the tractor while it tore a trench in our backyard. I mean, without me, the trench wouldn’t have happened, right? You’re welcome, babe. Here is an uncensored view from our backyard. What a beauty, huh?
**Sidenote: My camera decided to officially die so I’m using the GoPro for my images right now. That should explain the fishbowl appearance of the pictures.
This is where the new lines will run in a more organized manner. Right now our sinks, toilets, and showers are all running in different directions and draining in different areas of the pasture. It’s not exactly ideal. Hopefully, this will fix it.
Over the summer, Evan wants to tear out our hall closet and open up the bathroom that it juts into. Both of these doors are miniature. Since they are so small, we will take out both doors, take out the walls in the closet so it gives more room to the bathroom, and add a normal human-sized door into the bathroom.
Since we are doing all that, Evan figured taking down the ceiling and replacing it would be a good idea too. It’s lots of work, but we might as well do it while we are in there.
Bathroom ceiling…it obviously needs some love.
I have a few projects of my own to take care of while I’m on break. There are some furniture pieces that I have painted a few times that need to be stripped and redone. I’m going to try my hand at painting our front door (just decided this this morning) and I want to make a few things to try to sell. Also, as far as I am concerned, the blog is also my “job” for the summer so I want to make this more of a regular thing. I feel like I say that in every post…I’m serious this time. I hope.
