Tuesday was a super busy day. I spent the day in the kitchen putting contact paper in all the kitchen drawers, and unpacking the rest of the boxes from the kitchen.
Dh meanwhile had a busy day. His first job for the day was to change the mailbox. Below is what it looked like, I mean the poor thing was hanging in there by a thread.
This is what it looked like when dh replaced it:
Now in between hands, the mail lady popped by and stood and talked to dh. It turns out she was holding our mail at the post office as she couldn't deliver the mail to that old box. Anyhow, this mail lady is a source of information and knows everyone and everything about the area. What was funny, is that dh is NOT a talkative person, so I am betting he was cringing the whole time she was grilling him!!!
Now I have mentioned that the prior owners of our home left a pile of junk for us to get rid of, here is a photo of it (so far):
Well dh had a close encounter with a snake while putting more garbage on top of the pile on Tuesday!!! Luckily he also had a brush in his hands so at least he was "protected!!"
Any idea what this may grow up to be?
Also isn't this neat, this iron bar must have been in this tree for years for it to grow around it?
Finally I have this little family living in the garden, it's a shame they are made of stone!!
I must say I am a bit happier with the house, as it's starting to come together and looks a little cleaner. Wednesday I am going to tackle the mud room, that should take most of the day I am guessing, as it is filthy.......just as well I was standing in line when God was handing out those cleaning skills!!
I hope to have some more photos for you tomorrow.
