I wish you could smell these little lilacs.
They are so proud of themselves
for making it through the winter
and want everyone to know
that they have arrived!
Lilacs will always remind me
of my mother-in-law
Her lilac bush was huge,
and we took pictures of the kids every year at Easter
in front of the lilac bush.
My friend Gail brought me this one and her twin
because she heard me say that I had always
wanted a lilac bush of my own.
Stick your head down here and take a sniff....
All sheet rock has been hung and
the taping / mudding crew started today!
Here is some of that tape/mud goodness
Look how they covered every inch of the floor
with brown paper and tape so that when they are done
they just roll up the mess and leave!
I love these guys!
( I am the Chief Sweeper around here, and let me tell you,
this stuff makes a mess on the floor!)
The rooms are really looking like rooms now!
They wear these stilt like things to avoid having to climb
up and down ladders all day,
fetching more mud and tape.
Also it makes them look cool.
Here is O.T.
He runs this crew.
He owns this crew.
What O.T. says,
the crew does.
the metal edging
and who knows what all else.
He started doing this when he was 14 and is now 45.
O.T. knows his mud.
It has been a good day in the land of cedars...
a very good day.
