The countdown begins....

T-minus 6 days until the house is on the market! It's 8:38 on Saturday and Jason is putting the finishing touches on the trim. All that's left is painting and hanging a closet door and we're done!

You know us; we love to procrastinate!

Today was the marathon of all trim days. The man has worked from 9-8 pm with only a 45 minute stop for dinner (and a couple of Facebook breaks). And I'm exhausted from toting Hazel around all day to keep her away from her arch-nemesises (or nemesi, whatever the plural is): the air compressor and nail gun.

So tomorrow will be a lovely Sabbath rest day complete with a picnic at the park with mozzarella, basil, and tomato salad, chicken kebabs, wine, and strawberry dessert of some sort.

So very soon I will post pictures of chez Colfax and you can check it out. And there will be reminders of what the house looked like before purchase and when we moved in (i.e. how we were sans toilet for 3-4 days). Looking back, it's amazing what it looks like now. I do love this little house, despite i's foibles and proximity to a gas station and an RV park. Hopefully we can enjoy it a little bit longer this summer, without any projects!

And just because it's summer, here's a fun little post to read. From the Two Straight Lines blog. A very fun-looking summer "camp" schedule. I would totally do this with Hazel if she were a little bit older.
