Well,it wasn't a restful vacation,but mentally it was a nice 5 days off.I didn't get as much done as I hoped,because some of my help couldn't make it this weekend,but I did get my family room walls torn down,and next up is the ceiling which I will do next week when I take Thurs. and Fri. off.As with remodeling,things are upside down for a while.
Couldn't have asked for better weather while I was off.This has been an amazing month and Spring is coming in masquerading as summer.80's today and tomorrow end the summer weather spell,but it has been amazing.Records are being smashed everywhere.
Caribou, Maine which is as far as you can go before entering Canada. Yesterday smashed their previous record high which was 57, they hit 73.And these kinds of records are being smashed all over the east.
Back to normal this weekend,in fact Sunday looks cold and wet,but no below normal temps in sight.

Hi,jus,
Buddies couldn't make it.
We are doing over our family room which hasn't been done in 25 years.
So I ripped down our paneling on all the walls.
Next week I take down the drop ceiling and will put up Blueboard,but before I do that,I'm putting in recessed lighting.After all that is done,then we've hired a plasterer to come in and plaster the ceiling and walls. We also plan on replacing the big picture window facing the front.Thought we would put in a bow window,but expenses are getting pretty high,so will put in a flat window with 4 casement windows that open.Also replace an old smaller window on another wall.So yep,big project and moving all the furniture out of the room into other rooms,our animals are so confused!!!
All the buds are showing up on the Maple trees,shrubs are getting leaves,grass is turning green fast.Mother Nature has turned the calendar pages.

Hi NEw, so darn contractors didn't show up? Or are you having help from buddies?

What are you doing, Vaulting the ceiling? Adding on? Sounds huge (you don't have to answer, just sounds like a big project knocking down walls)

Laughing about the song. Even our strawberries look like they are taking off. Every dogwood, cherry tree, apple tree is in bloom. It is just wild. But Mother Nature will go with the flow. Enjoy your dog dayz of March!
