Christmas dinner

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 3:48 pm


We decided to christen the house by having Christmas dinner in the dining room… even though we are still working away.  No turkey, but delicious pork chops (with onions, garlic and celery Dennis) done on the hot plate.

Marianne has put her creative talents to work on the guest bathroom… likely the first room to be completely finished in the house.

Plugging away

We’ve been plugging away over the last few weeks.  Gerda and Joel are home for a time for Christmas break.  Drywall is getting close to being hung.  A few doors are in. The soffits are going up weather permitting.
