More house updates on the way...

Since Ken works a lot he just does not have time to do stuff around the house, so we have recently gotten a handyman that can help us out with smaller things needed done that I can't handle by myself.

One thing that needs doing is putting all the new hardware on the kitchen cabinets. So Ken asked if there is anything else I could think of needed done, so the guy can do that at the same time. I quickly thought of the largest sliding glass door, leading to the patio. It needs new rollers so it can run smoothly, it has started to jam up here recently.

Then I also suggested new faucets in the bathrooms... We ended up talking extensively about the bathrooms, which need more extensive stuff done, the toilets that we replaced being the first step... Sooo... it now looks like we are going to get new faucets, new sinks and granite counter tops in both bathrooms! I am so excited!

The handyman would do everything but the granite, but since it would make sense to replace the counter before putting in new sinks, well, we will see what we can find. There is a granite and marble place just down the road where you can pick out your own slab and they install it at a pretty reasonable price. So exciting! Hopefully it won't take too long before this happen... And hopefully a fully fenced backyard before Christmas! I just can't wait!!!

Tomorrow it is beach house day, despite the chances it will most likely rain on and off. We figured it would be fun just being down there, it is a fabulous house after all. And I really don't mind swimming and walking on the beach in the rain, it is still very HOT outside, over 35 C every day. Plus, Ken has gotten all kinds of goodies for us to snack on, so it will be nice just having a picnic if nothing else.

Hope you guys are having a great weekend!
