Birds and Bathrooms
Saturday was a really fine days all around, except for the fact that it was 87 degrees, kid you not, broke all the records. The Bridchick was out with some Bird Friends ( no, THEY weren't birds, they were men who were friends of birds, like the Birdchick ) and they spent the day banding all the little birds they could catch. You can read about it HERE
They let me " help " them some and even let me hold a wee bird, which have never done before, and then release it.
The dishwasher and garbage disposal are in ( can you handle the excitement ??? ) and I have been giving a lot of thought to my washer/dryer in the upstairs bathroom situation. If I am going to take out the tub, I may as well take the separate shower unit out and get a new one. My shower is BEYOND ugly, I'll take some pics for you, it looks like something you would buy if you had no taste and wanted your home to look like a pre-fab middle American house. Ugh.
Ok. So the shower unit goes and I get a nice new one.
Well, we didn't re-do the wallpaper when I moved in. It's pretty horrid too. So we may as well take that down, and re-paint, deep purple for the wainscoting and an off white for the upper half.
Hmmm...I hate the lighting too, faux Tiffany stained glass with gold/brass coloured metal bits. Again, WAY middle America. ( I can't think how else to describe it, can anyone ? We need to explain the horror of this to our friends from Europe. ) So, new lights all around.
I couldn't help but notice that the windows have silly faux lace curtains and blinds that do not GO . So they GO too.
I can live with the floor. Largely because I haven't a clue how much this is already going to cost me. See? That's home owning. You decide to do ONE LITTLE THING and BAM! You're re-doing the whole darn bathroom.
( oddly enough I have been listening to Malena all week describing the horrors of HER re-doing the bathroom. It always happens like that with us. We do the same things, same time, half our conversations go " I'm doing this...Oh Yeah, me too! " We have ceased to be surprised by this )
Love and such ,
