I am a dreamer of impossibilities

Today is Wednesday, I had hopes that I would be able to post the before and after pictures of the bathroom remodel, for wordless Wednesday. What was I thinking? Maybe next week - IF all goes well. So far they haven't, but I was able to go potty by 3:00 this afternoon.

He finally got the tub pipes to a non-leaking state, last night at 8:45. Famous lost words - "I will only have the water shut off a couple of hours." Try 10:30 a.m. to 8:45 p.m.... He will be coming back an hour or so every day to get all the mudding done on the sheet rock. He can't put the vanity in until the mudding is done and I think maybe the painting. I really don't know.

I will get to take a relaxing bath this evening, it has been ages! I have decided showers are a necessary item, but a bath is too. Next time shopping, I am going to but some tub items, for sure!

I sold the golf cart. It is no longer a lawn ornament. Pretty nice, not to see it parked out there in the front. The buyer said he would be back in a couple of weeks - I offered him some of my figs. They are mighty tasty, but I don't have the time or energy to mess with them this year. The next house will have a couple of fig trees too. ;-)

All for now, it is almost time to luxuriate in that tub!

    1. So did I, that shower was such a mistake. I did see $ signs went it went out the door, but so happy that it did. A tub is nice for aching old bones.

    1. Yes, that golf cart just sat there, too many obstacles in the yard. I am happy for the water!

  3. My Hub is a builder but he wont do bathrooms. They are such fiddly jobs he says lol and so much can go wrong. Same with kitchens, he is not a fan. I am able your job is drawing to a close. We never use our bath, not since the kids were little but it is such a selling point if ever we decide to sell. x

    1. When this bathroom is finished, the house will have both a (relatively) new kitchen and the new bathroom! I hope it sells fast - before winter comes in.

    1. The figs don't all ripen at the same time, and yes, nice to walk out for a snack.

  6. I have been away for a while and now I'm wondering if you found a new house and if you are moving. I hate to miss major life events of my blogger friends.
