WEEKS 44-47: Pacha Mama or Bahama Mama?

The past few weeks have been busy around Pacha Mama House, but you might not know it to look at all the house projects still left to do. Ha! J. went on a 4-day road trip from Plattsmouth, Nebraska to Tampa Florida and came back with her sister, and canine-nephew (Elmo) and canine-niece (Zoe). The arrival of houseguests was a definite motivator to get a few more things checked off the big ol’ honey-do list. Yay! Meanwhile, this past weekend, M. & I celebrated our 4-year wedding anniversary. We honored the occasion by taking a day cruise to the Bahamas!

  • DECISIONS: decided against beadboard in MBA; decided to have seawall repaired (instead of rebuilt) next month
  • LABOR: we participated in neighborhood yard sale and spent many hours yardening (all that stuff that happens before you can do gardening); M. finished linen closet install and the towels are no longer homeless!; Also, M. has moved into his new shed and begun the mancave conversion; our fave contractor installed all our interiors doors; J prepped the house for our first houseguest: welcome to N., Elmo, & Zoe!
  • MAJOR PURCHASES: Anderson storm door w/retractable screen; guest room ceiling fan

Here’s a pic of us 4 years ago at our Caribbean destination wedding…aww...such innocent house virgins! [before]

Here’s a pic of experienced DIYers taking a weekend off of houseprojects by taking a Caribbean cruise! [after]

J. thinks she could get used to this...

M. is such a (coco)nut in Freeport, Bahamas!
