The latest buzz....most of the den floor is laid. We moved our rug and furniture back into the room this past Saturday. I have about 2 1/2 rows left right around the doors to the kitchen and dining room.

The latest buzz....I finished four more rows today. Over half of the room is done now.
The next few rows will include drilling holes to match the three lines that come up for the cable and telephone.

The latest buzz....I laid another half dozen rows today, and now have roughly half the den floor done. I won't finish before Monday, so will just do a few rows, here and there, over the weekend.

The latest buzz....I only got 5 more rows laid today. I must be getting old, because all of this crawling around, flipping from being on my rear to being on my knees, leaning one way or another to put a nail in, etc., etc.,.......let's just say it was a tough day. I tried to get the cat to help, but he just looked at that hammer and walked away.

The latest goal was to get 10 more rows done today, leaving approximately 28 to do. I made it to the second board on the 10th row when my drill bit broke. It was the second one I broke today, (and I broke one yesterday). So, I'll wait until Judi gets home, and then drive up to Lowe's and get a half dozen more, and maybe some quarter round. The floor is looking good, but it sure takes a toll on a body.

The latest buzz....I spent about 4 hours laying 4 rows of wood flooring in the den. I looks like I'll need another 38 full rows until I reach the bar and doorways on the other side of the room.

Sunday, June 28, 2009

The latest buzz....we've cleaned out most of the den, and I've begun culling the hardwood floor we're going to put down.

The latest buzz....we got our backyard stage painted, and modestly decorated.

The latest buzz.... We've sent in a copyright request for 8 of my songs, the ones Josh and I worked on through the holidays.

The title on the below CD cover art, refers to a song whose lyrics include the refrain, "I've been looking long and hard for you."

The latest buzz...WE ARE DONE! It was a total team effort. We stayed tied in, on rope, the whole time. (Afterwards, we had steak and baked potatoes....celebration time.)

Monday, January 5, 2009

The latest buzz....Rain, Rain, Rain. I got out this morning and got felt on the roof before the rain came today. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, too. Wednesday and Thursday are looking rain free, so if I start early and work hard, maybe I can get the roof shingled by Thursday night.

The latest buzz....We started putting plywood up this weekend, and are finished. We've got the felt paper cut and ready to go up, and the shingles are here, too. It's time to push on to the end.
