Who called them the lazy days of summer?

Seriously...I am more busy in the summer than I am in the the winter I work on the house and the summer it seems I work outside and on the rentals.
We are putting a new bathroom and kitchen in one of our properties and it isn't thatn much fun to spend so much money on something you don't get to use. i know that I get to chose everything but sometimes people don't take care of your houses and then it is like starting over.
I should have taking before pictures but anyways I think the bathroom is just smashing so far...not what I would want at my home but wonderful for a rental.
I went with beadboard in the bathroom and between the kitchen cabinets..thought it would be easy to clean. The kitchen cabinets are white (stock from Lowes). Again...I would want something different but they will look so nice there.
I think we are painting the metal roof tomorrow and then...more work on the rental.
I have not decorated or done any stitching...nothing creative at all in 3 weeks...that is so depressing. Since Jackie is gone my dd is a depressed and I am trying to spend some extra time with her...she will head back to college in about 3 weeks and I think that will help.
I have some ideas of a few projects I am going to work on but until then I am just boring!!!LOL...I am going to go dream as I look throught the new country sampler mag. Be blessed.
