Here is the basement this morning. 
The light that normally hangs to the right of this room was removed for the repairs, so it 
looks dark. 

I also noticed this afternoon that the cloth couch is 
not smelling very well.  It is shoved into the next room of the basement, but we were told that it could be cleaned (or replaced). 

Here is the same room this evening, with one coat of paint on. 

Keith has some qualms... there was quite a bit of new drywall put on the lower walls... and Keith (and I) are not sure that a primer/paint was used.  He will be home tomorrow afternoon and 
will demand to check. 

This color came out more.... PUMPKIN... than I expected.  It was supposed to be 
the yellow side of tan. 

The supervisor worked here alone today, but when I asked what time he would be here 
in the morning, he informed me he would not be coming, but the two younger men who were here yesterday, would.  I am a little concerned, and I admit it. 

The carpenter came, but there was a huge mixup about the trim... and now we are waiting on that. 

Our first ripe tomato of the year.  I didn't quite make it by the Fourth of July. 

I have positioned it so that you cannot see that it has blossom end rot on the bottom... however, we 
will still eat this. 

There are lots more behind it, and some of good size. 

We now have a bird feeding station.  I did not fill the mixed feeder very full, as you can see... and there is a hummingbird feeder there too, you can barely see it in between the other two (a red top).  
It did not take long for the sparrows to find it.  

I noticed an empty feeder at the hospital today, so a bag is going with me when 
I go to have lunch with my brother tomorrow. 

And.... drumroll..... guess who gets to come home tomorrow afternoon?
Looking MUCH better, Keith! 

I'll be so glad to have him home, and so will Lilly! 


  1. Good to hear that Keith gets to come home!
    When Ken was in the hospital several years ago,
    I couldn't wait for him to come home.

    Hope things are going well for your brother.

    M : )

  2. Were happy too that Keith gets to come home.
    We like the color of the wall. That is the color of one of our walls... The sparrows will spread the word that there is a feeder in town!

  3. I like that color you have there on the walls. It gives a warm cozy feeling to the space. Hope all keeps going well with the repairs. Glad Keith will be returning home to supervise the work. I've not had a fresh tomato yet and can hardly wait. They are good. Hope you have a great day. Happy Thursday!

  4. I'm glad to hear Keith is feeling better and will be home soon! Isn't choosing paint colors so hard?! I would love to go with some "color" in our house, but thinking of painting right now is way too overwhelming!

  5. I'm glad Keith is going to be released.

    I hope they do the work correctly and that you are 100% satisfied when finished.

  6. Oh he does look so much better!!! I like your new bird feedin station, it seems like we spend a fortune feeding the birds here in our little town, but we so love to sit on the porch and watch them eat. I like your basement.

  7. So glad that Keith is so much better!

  8. Yay.. Keith will be going home!!
    Glad to see that the work is progressing on the basement.


I love comments!
