I got over the tedious brickwork on Sarah Elizabeth Brooke. I'm in the midst of the fun part now. Yay!
I just love all the motifs on the sides of the house.
I'm still working on the ones on the right side of the house. Then comes the other stuff -- like the over one words. Ugh.
I also managed to work a bit on And They Sinned on Sunday. I'm hoping to manage Sundays on ATS, but I won't show a pic till it's worthwhile.
The drain work is mostly done. The jack hammering part was just on one day, thankfully. And they were done with the inside work by the end of the second day. They are coming back to do the outside piping on an unspecified day, plus they have to install backup batteries for the system. The electrician is coming tomorrow. The workers also managed to damage a pipe -- luckily the drain company will pay for the work to fix it.
The basement is a mess -- nothing can be moved back into place against the walls until the cement over the new drains is dry. It's interesting trying to do the laundry with the washer and dryer in the middle of the room packed in tightly among the other furniture. I'm hoping we can move things back soon. I'm also hoping we can manage to do it ourselves!
The boy child had his first audition for a college music program this past weekend. 3 more to go! Hopefully the weather will cooperate for all of them -- none are close by. Here is a pic of the boy child warming up for his audition. He looks so refined, doesn't he?
The boy child also had his winter concert for his non-school orchestra. It's always so nice to hear some beautiful music from a live orchestra. Here are a couple of pics.
He is first chair of the bass section, so you can see him on the right there.
Mia has decided it's way too cold for her taste. When the boy child leaves his winter coat at home, she dives in.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. For those who have Martin Luther King Day off, enjoy the 3 day weekend! Have a great week, everyone!
