In which I post my (semi-)daily photos in an attempt to be more mindful (#9).
It’s been a long time since I posted any of my daily photos, but don’t fear — My “daily” photos have some gaps in them these busy days. So I’m going to do two photo roundups today and tomorrow to clean shop, and hope to be back with my weekly photos next Friday. Without further ado, here are the rest of my photos for the month of November!
Nov. 16 – The hubs spent a ton of time cutting beadboard — for a total of 16 pieces for the back of eight bookshelves. I was in charge of caulking all those pieces to make sure that the edges were crisp and gap-free. In the end, we love it!
Nov. 17 – Nothing completes a full week of work like breakfast for dinner, complete with a spicy bloody mary. I might have to make that a regular dinner.
Nov. 20 – One more trip to Lowes … at least the hauls (and receipts) are getting smaller each time.
Nov. 21 – I made use of a 10% coupon we received for moving and a sale to get us a new bar! Our old liquor storage was going back to its original family with the hubs’ parents, so we jumped on the chance to get something a little more glamorous.
Nov. 22 – It was our first family Thanksgiving with my new nephew, and we really enjoyed spending a few days with my family. We ate a bunch and played with him even more.
Nov. 23 – This is my dad, rocking my nephew to sleep in the rocking chair that he used to use with my sister and me. Cue the collective “awwwwww….”
Nov. 25 – We spent a nice (unpictured) day with the hubs’ parents before heading home late that night. Unfortunately, elves did not come and unpack the rest of our house while we were gone, so we were greeted with this mess in our hallway.
Nov. 26 – I tackled one of our remaining projects by myself at lunch and attempted to put up some window film on all the windows on our front door. It looked great in the daytime, but darkness revealed a few issues that I still need to take care of. My work here is never done!
Nov. 27 – I awoke to a reminder that time was speeding along, no matter how much I felt like it was still October — frost in our backyard and fog coming off the pond.
Nov. 28 – I was back to my handy caulk gun to seal the edges of our tile to the baseboards. The grout was crumbling away and catching every bit of dust or hair, so I caulked all the edges in our bathrooms, hallway, and kitchen. A lot of work for something that hopefully will draw no notice, but I think it looks much cleaner and finished now.
Nov. 29 – This is our nice, clean, empty townhouse. We spent a ton of time that week getting things ready for our move-out inspection. I still had a few things to clean up as we were cleared, but we are looking forward to getting our large security deposit back. Keep your fingers crossed — another week!
