It is now this!!!!!!!!
Is is perfect? No, the bathroom is not beautiful by any means yet, but our bathtub and shower are usable once again! No more showers in the little square shower stall in the basement bathroom! . . . and yes, that is a pretty well permanent rust stain on the bathtub--it is a good, solid, cast iron, porcelain tub and therefore would be very difficult to replace with any other kind of tub, so what it really needs is to be refinished, but as we can't quite afford the bathtub refinisher to come and work on our tub we just will live with our imperfections. Imperfections are what make each one of us unique (including our bathtubs!)
My garden was a very imperfect garden this year--totally my doing--the plants worked their best to overcome my lack of weeding and care and so Saturday when I went to pull out stakes from the garden so that Dan could chop down the tall weedy mess, I was able to pick these . . .
. . . and put them into my cute rooster pitcher.
Lastly--the cows enjoying the Fall weather . . .
Do you see them down there? They love laying in the shade of the trees at the bottom of our south barnyard.
This weekend we'll be getting two longhorn mama's to add to our animal population. I can't wait to meet them!
