Today's post will be a little bit of this and that. Along with pictures of a couple of things that I am thankful for
Here is a shot, pre-yard sale that we had  the first weekend of November. It was hard to get a good shot of all the stuff, and believe me there was a lot!! Yes, it was dark and we had a customer at 6:30 who wanted everything for a quarter! It was the coldest Saturday so far this fall, so we froze, but we got rid of a bunch of stuff for which I am very thankful, and took the rest to the Salvation Army Thrift Store when we were done. I stuck with it, and it didn't go back in the house. Believe it or not as we paint and re-do a few things I will continue to clean things out, for another sale.
Few more piles of stuff!
We were finally able to get started on the laundry room. Now if I can just find someone to spray the cabinet doors for me.  The cabinet man called as I was preparing the post, and the price is reasonable so we will be getting the doors to him this week. Yet another thing that I am thankful for!It looks very different now, but not quite ready for an after shot. This is what we have done so far:
Insides of Cabinets painted
Walls painted
Outside of cabinets primed
Molding painted
Still waiting for new counter top and sink, cabinet doors need to be primed and painted, new door to arrive and paint, window trim to be painted. It is slow go. I don't know how so many seems to get things done so fast! I am just slow I guess.

It rained today!!!! It has been very dry here, and we have needed rain . Even these birds were enjoying the shower. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so what have you been thankful for this week?

Remodeling ALWAYS takes a LONG time! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! ha!ha! But it sounds like you are making progress and that's good! It's a good feeling to clean out, isn't it? And just think how excited those shoppers at the thrift store are going to be when they find all your goodies there!:-)

I like your 30 days of being thankful. Today's is especially nice. In the midst of all your remodeling, you're still thankful.

I have a love / hate relationship with yard sales: LOVE going, HATE having them. Sooo much work, but clearing out the clutter feels great.

I can only imagine how frustrated I'd get if I had to wait for someone to do projects. My handyman is husband has picked up a paintbrush ONCE in our 15 years of marriage, and I think it was more about foreplay than about helping me get something done ;)

Your laundry room is going to be fabulous! Can't wait to see the finished project!
