"Coral & Bluebells"
"Box of Marbles"
Chris has subcontractors do most of the work...they are the best at what they do..but on our house to cut cost he is doing some of the work like the trim and concrete..he has a guy (Brian) that helps him everyday so here they are putting up some soffit..all the guys know eachother so well now and it is fun to hear all the teasing that goes on..they are relentless sometimes..Carter just sits on my hip and looks and listens..hmmm I better be careful was he takes in huh?! No they are good guys and its all in good humor!
Today I took his stroller in since it was Sunday and wheeled him around..he seemed to like that!
Drywall is up and soon to have the finish coats and sanding done this week
Today Chris and another guy(Kevin) that does carpentry worked on putting the post on the porch
If you look close you can see the concrete on the porch..this is what Chris did before he started building houses so he still likes to do it occasionally..
He did "exposed"..which is when you powerwash off the top layer of concrete when it is still wet so the pebbles are "exposed"..I love it we have it on our porch now..it makes it look really old
(and hides the dirt)
So that is what we have been up to..Chris has been working 7 days a week..I told him Carter thinks he has a single mom!
But we have a deadline..we have to be in it by November 1st or else we will be out back in a camper for Thanksgiving!
~But I still think he's cute ;)
Some new earrings..I will relist these until my supplies to make run out!
Here he is..scared to death with no idea how to get down..yes cats can get down..but this was really really high and the tree was so skinny and he is so old...(and hurt we later find out)
It took over 2 hours to figure out what to do..first Chris put a board from the shed to the tree top..Romeo looked at that like "you want me to come down THAT?"
So Chris went up to access the situation and Romeo's condition..he came down and put on a heavy coat and gloves..there are not pictures because I was cowering in the kitchen unable to watch..I was sure Romeo not meaning to would shred Chris to pieces!
But it ended well ..he got up there and Romeo put his paws on Chris' shoulders..he grabbed him and down they came..no one got hurt.
But poor Romeo was hurt..he ripped every single one of his back claws out running up the tree..he was bloody and trembling..but managed to eat right away so he will be fine!
So today he is sleeping downstairs on a soft cat bed..with his food and litter box close.
Chris is my hero (and he says he doesn't like cats-ha!)
Chris gave me roses in the morning and said he was taking the day off! Well as off as he can do...I guess cell phones don't count!
But who cares ...we were going to Easton!
The first stop we make is lunch at Brio...Carter is practically made of Brio, when I was pregnant we ate there everytime we went to Easton.
He did really good when he woke up...
I ended up holding him while I ate..he just sat real still and looked around.
The fountains where the kids run through the water was right behind me and he looked that way alot
(next summer buddy)
The Columbus Zoo brings in animals for the kids to see..here they are bringing a baby white leopard!
The next stop was Babies R Us..the place that used to intimidate us now is familiar and fun!
We sat Carter in a new bouncer and he loved it so much we had to buy it..he just kicked and laughed so much more than in the old at home!
Then we came home...and Chris' mom said she would watch him for a few hours so..we went out to eat again!!!
What a day..I haven't had this much excitement in 3 months!
I honestly felt like I was on vacation..I loved it but I'm looking forward to tomorrow..home with my peanut!
