Penguin Birthday Party

Pingu the Penguin's 9th birthday (according to Isaac). So we had ourselves a little party. Fun was had by all.

Looking for eagles

When for a short hike below Tuttle Creek dam and only saw about a thousand geese, a pelican, and 2 bluebirds. (Crows & gulls are a given). Didn't know that dogs are allowed so next time we'll bring Lucy. A beautiful day to be out, then came home to bake chocolate crinkle cookies with dough from the TR fundraiser.

Yet still more to do.

One more room to completely finish. Along with installing lights & smoke detectors, carpeting in the bedrooms & a lot of trim work. A bonus with the smoke detectors is that now they will all be hard-wired throughout the house and so if one goes off, they all go off. Plus, there's a CO/smoke detector next to the furnace in the basement.

Did I mention the backyard is now basically one huge mud hole - and I just had it back to "normal" from when we replaced the sewer line 2 years ago! (Guess I have to have something to do to keep me out of trouble.)

An offering for the masses

Kitchen - nearly put back in order. The dryer is on the left in the picture, but the washer is still in the pantry - waiting to be moved until the floor is installed in the mudroom.

Mudroom is ready for many more hooks & shelves.

From our bedroom looking into the original house.

The wonderful new bathroom.
