I realize that I appreciated my father-in-Law last Gratituesday when I told you that he had come from California to help us insulate our living room…but after watching him work and work and work all week long I can’t think of anything or anyone else that deserves a shout out again this Gratituesday. Prepping walls so that you can insulate them is NOT easy work. Prepping walls to put drywall up after insulating them is NOT easy work.
Matt has, of course, had to go to work most of the days his dad has been here. I am unable to help because plaster dust is the last thing my asthmatic lungs need. My father-in-law (if a girl can say such a thing about her father-in-law) has been a rock star. He has put in so many hours of hard labor that he will for sure need a vacation from this vacation. Oh, and in between jobs in the living room…he’s been thoughtfully working to get the drains in our bathroom to work better. I feel so cared for. Have I mentioned that he’s the one responsible for the fact that we have a working dishwasher?
Both Matt and I agree: This project would have never happened without him. We are so very grateful.
We’re a little bit farther along than this now…but here are the walls with insulation sprayed in.
Just when you think the room can’t get any messier… :)
On a slightly random note (because random is what I do best), Matt and I have been SHOCKED that our tomatoes are STILL producing. This has been one warm and lovely fall. Rarely are we still picking big loads of tomatoes in mid-October, but would you look at that:
Looks like another round of tomato sauce is in the works.
It sure is a good thing my kitchen is not as messy as my living room right now, huh? :)
