On the Home Stretch

Everything has been coming together in the last few weeks. The big hurdles are over and the details pile up like a stack of pancakes. For example, the closet in the master bedroom finally got its doors and the last coat of paint.

And the carpet went in - from the family room to the master bedroom.

The kitchen door which was originally an outside door was taken out and reframed.

The bathroom sink was dropped into the new cabinet Steve made. The cabinet is still missing the doors, but that is just one of the things still on the "to do list."

Steve tiled and grouted the bathroom wall around the tub. I have to say here that the "white" tile which looked so very white when we bought it now looks a lighter shade of gray. It looks nice, but what a surprise when I thought we were getting a white on white look. I've come to learn that there are over twenty-five shades of white, if not more, that can be mixed into a glaze. Just as there are over a 137 shades of white paint at Dunn Edwards. Stark white, snow white, blush white, Arctic white, antique white, wedding dress white and so on. The color white is defined as having all the colors of the spectrum in it which probably explains why there are so many variations of the the color white. One could do a whole essay on the color white, but I shall stop and just show you the picture of the "white" glossy tile in the bathroom. It looks a tiny bit gray - I think I'll call it "Morning Dove" white. I took a bath in there the other night and it was very soothing.

Moving on from the tile, another "to do" that was completed was installing the gutters on the north side of the addition. Luckily, we got them up before the rains. Our next door neighbor was quite impressed with the gutters. He wondered if they came in the dark gray color we'd used. We informed him that we had painted the metal so that it blended in with the facia making them less intrusive. The down spouts we left in their natural shiny metal.

Throughout all this finishing up of details, Dylan has been supervising, a job he does well. He's been a very good dog and kept out of the way of all the building, but I did notice this morning that there are paw prints on the primer of the garage floor and gray paint on his paws. What we can't figure out is when he strolled through the garage? The garage floor is getting an epoxy finish as I write this blog today. Pictures to come next time.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the county's tax assessor has already dropped by to reassess the value of the house. Why is it that when you want the bureaucracy to do something for you it takes a long time, but when they want money they are quick to come calling?

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
