Last night was our annual birth parent dinner. It was my first one. Bret and I chose to donate quite a bit of money to make it a really nice evening. One of the board members is friends with Kenneth cope and got him to provide entertainment. This is his back side. I loved one of his songs -about how God loves broken things. I saw a couple old friends there and had a grand time. some day maybe I will bring my own birth mom.
This is my old room. Once walked in wood paneling that I found warm and inviting. Now it will be a generic plain walled room. Yes I miss it already. Mostly because of the headache it has been to transform it.
Here is the latest view of our basement. I took it from the north looking south this time. The pile in the middle is our couches stacked on top of each other. Word is it will be another 2 weeks since the windows and doors are being custom made. Today the tried digging out our old window well to put in a deeper one. The old one was formed with rebar so the $125 rental fee for a concrete cutter was a total waste and they spent the afternoon with a sledge hammer. Sadness all around. I should get a photo of the big hole. Maybe tomorrow.
I didn't think it was possible but I now have my dryer next to my washer. Out is not totally set up yet - the guy wants to redo a lot of the plumbing still. Amazing I tell you. Amazing. Plus there are now no light bulbs hanging down to hit your head on. He put in recessed lights in places I didn't think it was possible. Next week the dry wall should be going in.
Well it is like ice cream. It is frozen banana blended with frozen spinach and a bit of cocoa powder. Oh and peppermint extract to give it the minty flavor. All on top of whole wheat oat pancakes. I call it a delicious breakfast.
