The Only Day This Week
To do all the things I haven't gotten around to since I got "the cough". I have loads of wash to take to the laundromat. I have the taxes to do. I have carpets to vacuum. Sheets on the bed to change. The hall bathroom to scrub clean .
And now that the snow has finally decided to stop coming down---I have to go upstairs to search for Spring clothing. Which was furthest from my mind when the carpenters first arrived in March. Now it's April and nearly May. It's been so long that I think lifting plastic barriers to get to the different rooms in the house is "normal".
My shower tile is like the tile in the picture above. Only my tiles are 4 by 12. And the line where the shelf is in the picture is a thin one inch line of the black floor tile. My vanity will echo the cabinets and granite top.
But instead of the solid bottom my vanity has a long shelf at the bottom to hold folded towels. The shelf is higher off the floor. Sinks are under mounted. My faucets are shorter but only the one for each sink. The little column has a little lever to switch from cold to hot/ on and off. I spent too much time and effort cleaning the previous sinks (shell design lots of indents) and faucets (clear glass knobs with creases) so I don't want anything with grooves or design elements. I think I just found a less expensive (and correct finish) light fixture. Previously I had ceiling tube lights. Wallpaper. Lots of wallpaper. Such an ugly bathroom.
I still have to find and order vanity knobs. And door knobs.
The shower floor is going in today. Adding to the neighborhood excitement--- a big oak tree is being cut down next door. Riley is torn. To watch and supervise the bathroom work or be outside supervising the tree work.
Have to run across the street to list my neighbor's cleaning person in to the house. See you later!
