This totally sux!
Once again I have poison ivy all over my arms! I'm not sure that a nice looking yard is worth this much pain and discomfort.
I'm going tomorrow to the doctor to get a shot to try to cure this shit faster. Last time - in March - when I was cleaning along the fence and got into some poison ivy, the blisters, sore, itchy, painful arms.... lasted three months til it was all gone.
I want this gone.
aaauuugggg!!!!! I think I have a couple of small places on my face. Damnit!
My bro came over to help Dad work on finishing a couple of walls in my room this afternoon.
When he was leaving he happened across this little cutie in the yard.

Yay- away from the house for a couple of days. I decided to go for a ride and wound up back in Hot Springs... blogged about this little town before. I decided to take some pictures of stuff other than just the same views of the town from the observation tower, It was actually a better ride this time because last time I rode the Honda Rebel 250 and this time was on my Shadow 600.
I had to take a bunch of the pictures with my phone because my camera battery died just after I got there.. figures...Read more
One of the local radio stations here is having a contest to give away a 2009 Buell motorcycle! I'm taking every opportunity to enter!

Well, the plumber finally came this week. He worked two full days... wow... He'll be back next week to finish up. There is a lot for him to do, and he'll have to come back to do gas lines later.
We brought my shower in from storage. I used this one before we remodeled and added a tub, I like the shower stall better than the tub.
Now we have to put the shower together..
I'll start with a little more wiring.... We're putting an electrical fuse box in the hallway as a junction to the outside main panel. That means sending all the wires from upstairs through the floor/ceiling to the box, and the wires from my new room through the wall to the box. We are finished with upstairs and have the wires coming down to the new fuse box.
Wires going down through the floor. These are connecting all the switches and outlets.
The girls actually helped place the receptacle boxes.
My brother is helping Dad with the electrical. He used to do electrical work, years ago.
The house looks different every day. They worked on matching up the roof for better drainage and good looks.
The slope of the roof needed to match across the front.
The original roof was a 'Dutch Hip"
Well, the weekend is over.
Saturday I cleaned up the mess in my new room. I took out 7 bags of old insulation, roofing and other trash.
Sunday my brother and his family came up to visit with my dad for Fathers Day. We had an ice-cream cake, it was yummy. The kids had a fun time exploring the addition.

Thursday and Friday the crew got a lot done. It feels like an actual house.... lacking those finishing touches like windows, doors and a few walls......
They've made a mess of my room. But this room is going to be finsihed by us.
They took out the exterior doors, and most of the pine paneling.
