Last Sunday, after our awesomely-fabulous trip to Lowes that only cost us the price of gas and a couple breakfast sandwiches, we stopped patting ourselves on the back and got to work on the guest bedroom. My dear friend, Stefania, had been planning on coming up for New Years eve and I really wanted her to have a decent place to pass out after hours of fun.
It took some time to finish the drywall in the closet, with its little kneewall, outlet, switch, and light, there were alot of calculations to make to be sure everything fit correctly. But we got it finished, and I think we can officially call it a closet now. After a quick break for an early dinner and a couple glasses of wine (normally beer is our home-renovation requirement but you work with what you've got, right?) we headed back up to start on the rest of the walls.
My arms seriously needed a break at this point. Being just under 5'5" doesn't help reach those places way up high where drywall screws need to go. So we headed downstairs to feed the impatient dogs before going out to the barn. The girls were happy to see that their dinner was coming and they all ate happily as Kyle and I looked around for the eggs. The chickens were getting wise to the fact that we're taking their eggs, and must not be appreciating it because we had to search extra-hard to find more than a few. All in all we found a dozen eggs, all but four in these new hiding places.
