There was progress this week.
Actual, visible progress.
First, the invisible:
Mon mari redid the phone wiring. I no longer have cables strung all over the floor.
Now they're strung all over the floor upstairs.
I'd go up to show you… But I don't want to.
We bought a bathroom door. That's exciting.
Of course, it would provide even more privacy if there were walls.
But there will be walls…
See? The studs are in. We use metal studs here.
Can the wall board be far behind?
The tiles are being cut as I type.
Okay, I'm reaching a bit about the visible progress….
We take what we can and are happy!
If you are looking for a fast, healthy dinner this will make you happy.
Stir-fries don't have to be 'Asian'….
