This week I am at my daughters. She is working and the carpenter has come to install the windows. He says he allots one hour per window, five down and seven to go. It will take two days and rain is in the forecast. They look great and will have screens and the new windows will keep out the cold and possibly the heat.
I spent the morning cleaning out the perennial garden, I can identify some things but not all. At the back of the yard are two lilac shrubs and some raspberry bushes. I have found Forsythia and two butterfly bushes. Perhaps I will take photos of them. We have multiple spring bulbs with daffodils, crocuses, narcissist as well as something that I think are tulips and irises. There are rose bushes over the trestle but that appears to be rotting and will probably survive the summer. Out in the side garden I have found rhubarb and strawberry plants. My father always grew rhubarb and I do not like it.
We are done with the demolition of the downstairs tub removal. Next will come the relocation of the water lines and installation of the new tub and shower stall. At the end of the workday the cats came to inspect the work.
The bathroom needs some storage units, new floor and to be painted. Chuck decided we need to do one room at a time. Get it finished and move to the next instead of half done projects.
