Photo Report

This morning, I was happy to be greeted by this little guy:

This vine has grown six feet in the two weeks since I cut back all the weeds. I suspected it was a squash or a cucumber, and this blossom sure looks like a squash to me. It looks like the zucchini flowers that I love to eat so much, but I guess it could be a winter squash - D's favorite food. We'll see!

My basil is bushing out, while the rest of the planter is just getting along:

One of the pepper plants got right down to busines and made an itty bitty little fruit:

The others are following suit.

Some shots of the sanded floors:

the floors look wonderful!! Are you going to stain them darker or keep them the natural color? They'd look terrific either way, I bet.

Glad y'all think they look good! We never really decided what we would do, but I would guess we'll go natural. That's what the guys think is on the first floor, so we're basically trying to match that.

The floors look great as do all the walls, at least on line. The real test is what it all looks like in person and only six days to go. Really, I am so impressed with you guys. And Darren, your memories of our not doing home projects have more to do with the fact you, Jess and I would move out whenever Dad would decide to do something, we just couldn't bear to watch his frustration, hear his ranting and yell at us for breathing. (ok, that's quite an exageration and untrue, but it makes an interesting therapeutic story) And besides, look at all you got to experience from our beloved contractors - hot chile black eyed peas on new years day, rides from the movie store during a thunderstorm when mom's foot was broken and in a cast, lectures on where monkey grass (lariope) could and couldn't go. I'm sure that unconscously those experiences are helping you with your renovation work. And with keepng your cheerful attitude, right! OK enough for now. Keep on truckin (i am a child of the sixties - sort of) and we'll be trucking on up in 6 days. Love you both. Mom
