We had a busy Friday - school, volleyball and then off to Kelly & Sam's for a brief visit before I dropped Spence off at Kinjo's to have supper with James.

I headed home and finished off my bulkhead frame - it's sturdy, functional and not at all pretty :)  Tomorrow I insulate, vapor barrier and hopefully start with the drywalling.

Tomorrow is also Ottafest for Spence and stove shopping for me as my stove is dying a very horrible death and refuses to stay alive until I can renovate the kitchen....on the good side, all the expensive stuff will have been purchased before I ever do the kitchen up.

Today is museum / drum lesson day here and so I plan on heading off to work for a bit and then home depot so I can get a few materials to complete the frame for the new garage bulkhead.

Yesterday I got a surprise knock on the door at 9am...it was the joist repair guys.  They had been told by their boss, Tuesday and I had Wednesday on my calendar.  Thank goodness I had everything prepped.

They worked on the joists - they are soooo good now.  they added supports all over the place.  I am hoping to start boxing in the new pipes in the garage so I can drywall this coming week.  I put up temporary drywall so the cat couldn't get into the pipe areas and the garage.

In the meantime, Spence got up and we headed off to PE and then after we got home, I grabbed Karma from daycare and worked on making supper for all of us - Spence had left over Edo Japan and the pups and I had creamed potatoes with peas and onions and I had some veggie burgers and they had some canned stew to go with it.

Spence took off with his dad to ski for a bit at COP and said he had a terrific time even though the snow sucked.  The boys plan to head out tonight and maybe Tammy's girls will join them.

Today it's a regular school day, so no big plans other than school and skiing for Spence tonight.

Well the plumbers did a great job yesterday and if you need a good guy - Taylor'd Plumbing - awesome little crew.

The plumbing is done and tomorrow the joist guys come and then I can re-drywall the entry :)

Spence did end up having a good day yesterday overall and had a good time with his dad at Tammy's place.

Today we're off to PE and then Spence and his dad are going to hit COP and go skiing, Spence is looking forward to it, so I hope he enjoys himself.

Looks as if Spence is back to being 100% - so this week we hope to make both PE and Volleyball.  Today is our regular - essay, drums, math, printing, spelling and reading.

The plumber arrives shortly to move the plumbing in the entry way and then I can close all that up again.

Sunday - man did I get to sleep in....10:30 before the animals decided it was belly rub time.  We made crepes and coffee and they had their share of crepes and sandwich meat and I had crepes and coffee, although the cat keeps trying to dunk it's head in my coffee and I have no idea why.

Spence has asked for an angel food cake, so that will be made today.  I am removing the garage ceiling and wall for the plumber and removing all items under the stairs so he can do his work there too.  I am so excited this will be done soon.

I have all the insulation and drywall I will need to finish the work up before I leave for holidays - now to make time to do that :)

Spence of course is still asleep - way to early for him on a Sunday.  We have a few chores to do around the house and we have to figure out supper, but otherwise we are pretty much relaxing today.
