The Gutters and The Gutted

So, we have new gutters up on the house. Nice, long, seamless, white, gleaming, and a huge 6 inches. I'd say get your mind out of the gutter, but hey, that's what I'm talking about!

Same size as the shed's, these are the only way to go. The crummy 5 inch gutters just couldn't satisfy me. I added some corrugated drainage pipe (4 inch) to the ends of two of them and found out rather quickly that 50 feet just isn't enough. So I'll need to get about 25 more feet to make it all square. Maybe another 50.

Anyway, here's a good look at the new stuff.

And then we have Elizabeth's room gutted, cleaned, and partially re-assembled. Yvonne will be picking up all (or at least most) of the new furniture today from Value City, so we'll see how that looks tonight (and no, she won't be unloading it, I will be doing that).

Elizabeth likes her new drapes and we've even gotten her to sleep not only in her "big girl underwear" but to also sleep without the little rails on her toddler bed. Seems to be doing great so far.

WOW!! What an eventful last couple days. I'm glad to hear everything is alright nothing major resulted in any of the incidents. Yvonne's doing well now, I hope?

It's always scary when you're that far along, or further even, and something like that happens. Tell her I'm glad she's ok. As for Elizabeth, it seems you two are going to need to scare the bejeebus out her regarding the street. That way, she'll avoid messing around there like the plague and you'll all feel a little safer.

By the way, nice job on the gutters, they look splendid and well done. Whose house did you sneak around for pics because I know that can't be your house, it's too pretty and nice. Oh, wait, you're married. That's why it looks nice, the wife has you working on your honey-do list, eh?

hahaha, just kidding. I'm picking up my closet doors today since they came in at the end of last week. I'll work on those maybe this week and possibly have them up by close of weekend. Pictures of the room to follow.

And speaking of redecorating, I like the lavendar for Elizabeth's room. The colors are a gentle combination, I like it - though I don't have any need to similarly decorate it's pretty nonetheless.

Take care!
