Bathroom Remodel

Well, it's Monday and I think the torrential rains have finally subsided here in PA.


What a crappy week (last week) and weekend...except part of Sunday was sunny and nice.


Walliacha is back to roofing today and I will be hitting the gym tonight.


Just wanted to post pics of what I did over the weekend. I switched to more age appropriate bathroom decor. I have had the rubber duckie bathroom decor since I got my own place after college. This weekend I switched to seashells.


I love it!! I made everything myself which makes it even more awesome!!


Here are the pics and exactly what I did...all I need to do now is pick a new wall color and paint!!! WooHoo!!!!!!!

Here is the new shower curtain - bought a plain curtain with clearance curtain hangers and glue gunned ribbon and shells to hang down a different lengths...


Toilet bowl brush - kept the old brush and bought a glass jar on clearance at Michael's and added a ribbon and seashell...


New soap dish - kept the old soapbar (LOL) and bought an off-white holder on clearance at Burlington and added seashells...
Used an old white trash can I had and added ribbon and shells...
Bought this slate switchplate (I think this was the most expensive thing I bought) and added shells...
This was also on clearance with the soapdish and matches it, again, just added shells...

I miss my duckies a little bit but LOVE the new shells!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And someone at Goodwill gets to give the duckies a new home - I am sure they will love the traveling!
As promised in writing, if the boys ever swim Waliacha gets to pick the decor (inside joke)...

TGIT...Is that a real saying? Oh, well, thank Goodness it is Thursday!
Npt alot to report today.
Went to the new Zumba class at the gym last night and it was great!
I love Zumba!!!
We had torrential storms here in PA last night and my tomato plant was knocked over...I got back from the gym and found it laying on the patio. By the time I saved it...half of the little green tomatos were knocked off. :-(

A few more pics for your enjoyment...

Here are a few more pics for your enjoyment (I hope).
The first is my patio. I love flowers and as you can see from my patio I overload it every year. This is where I get all of my serenity and peace! I love it on my patio!!!!

The next pic is of my bluebird eggs. At work we have a nature preservation program of which I am a member and we monitor bluebird boxes for new eggs and chicks. My last nest was invaded and the chicks never got to hatch so I wanted to get pictures of the process to document for you and me. There are now five eggs and as long as nothing invades the nest (cross your fingers and pray), in about 12 - 15 days I should be posting pics of the chicks....time will tell but until then here are the babies in their shells......:-)


These last two pics are of our family garden at the lake. I planted everything on Memorials Day weekend and they were just little sprouts and now they are GROWING!!! I love wathcing the garden grow....another of my pasttimes that give me peace and serenity. (With all these peace and serenity pasttimes you would thing I am peaceful hugh??) LOL :-)

The cucumbers and tomatoes...

The zucchini and melon and cauliflower(I though I bought brussel sprouts..oh well)...

Have a great Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im back

I am back to blogging. I was going to try my hand at Facebook for updating and keeping track of the important stuff in my life however, I have decided that this works wayyyyyyyyyyyy better.
Or maybe I am just more used to it....anyway....
I'm back!!!
A few new things to report. Walt is finally back to roofing work and also driving limos/Hummers on weekends. He seems to be wayyyyyyy happier with the driving but not so sure that it can pay his bills. Time will tell, all in all isn't it much more impt to be happy anyway as long as it covers his bills?!??! Again, time will tell and he looks really nice when he drives as he has to get all spiffed up in a suit and tie!! Woo Hoo!
This weekend I am off to the lake with Matt and Sara. We will celebrate fathers day this weekend since Dad and Mom scheduled a trip on the actual day of "fathers day". She said "it is not like it's a holiday or something" when we asked why they planned it on father day!! I told her she needs to remember that when Mothers Day comes again again! LOL
