If walls could talk

Our first floor bathroom was apparently 47 different colours, one of which was really nice. Please ignore the sweatsuit - it is cold in our house!

Snow Snow Snow!!!

The Focus in the snow,
Catching snowflakes (with the camera)

This was the deepest snow we've was gorgeous for the first couple hours...then when I had to scrape my car, I remembered why I moved to Texas.

At last

The gutter is fixed and the wall is whole! After all those bad weather delays, our workmen finally finished and we have one whole wall, Halleluiah!!

Tuck pointing 101

So as I type, there are two wonderful people working on replacing the mortar in the really bad wall of our house. I can not describe how relieved I am, just to have someone working on it. They should be done Monday. YAY! They are grinding out the old, well, sand right now. Who knew? Well, besides people who actually research these things before they throw themselves headlong into owning a pretty old house. (refer to the end of the very first post).
