This is a three day weekend for me. 
We spent most of Saturday and Sunday goofing off.
(I took lots of lovely photos)
Now I have to put my nose to the grindstone and catch up on my homework. 

I will show you the pictures soon. Isn't it a lovely time of year to be outside with a camera?

Good morning, and Happy Easter

Kat is busy typing away at some big homework thing for school so I told her I would say hello to everyone today.

Hello Everyone!

I have been very helpful lately.
 This is me, helping with the laundry. It is a little blurry as I was very busy and did not have time to hold still for the picture.

This is me in my new position,
I have been promoted to supervising the laundry.

Hope you all have a Happy Easter, if you see the bunny, tell him to please bring me fish instead of eggs.

Spring Challenge!

When I was a kid, growing up in Utah. My Mom used to make us wear undershirts from Halloween till Easter. I guess she thought it was not Spring till Easter arrived. 
We always had new hats, sometimes white gloves, and lovely dresses for church on Easter Sunday. 
Some people will say those fancy Easter Bonnets are a sign that Spring has finally arrived. 

How can you tell that Spring has arrived in this part of the South?

Ok, well the obvious answer might be that the flowers are in bloom (I have posted several photos recently on that subject). 
Except for the fact that some flowers bloom here year round.
My Camellias bloom in the middle of winter.

You might say Spring is here when you start seeing folks in shorts,
Nope, some people here wear shorts year round as well. 

The Challenge
Everyplace has it's own unique sign that Spring has finally arrived. 
I will show you three pictures for examples. 
I want you to post a picture, a paragraph, or even a poem, describing your idea of the ultimate sign of spring on your own blog. Then leave a comment on this post with a link to yours. 
If you do not have a blog, post it in the comment block below.

Not the usual blog post. Before and after, more home improvements

What's this?
Large boxes on the porch
This is the beginning of our bathroom replacement. 
This particular project has been in work for quite a while now.
Let me show you what we started with.
Since our lovely antebellum home was built in the 1830's
It did not originally come with bathrooms.
Not to worry, one of the previous owner's took care of that. 
This is (or was) the downstairs bathroom. The Shower Tub was one of those combinations all molded together.  I do not know when it was put in, but it was a long time ago. It was also difficult to clean.
Here is a view  through the door, the bathroom is in what used to be part of the hall. 
Messy counter tops
I have to admit, it was a little cluttered.......
 Bathroom cabinets waiting to go back in.
The only thing we reused was the cabinets as they are still in great shape. 
 Down to the floor boards
They had to cut the old tub up to get it out. Here it is down to the bare floor. I wonder if this is original or replacement? 
 What a mess
 Progress, shower is in place.
 Almost done
At this point, we still had to put the rest of the drawers back and seal everything before it could be used.
All done, come on in and check it out. 
New door as well.
Shower interior
Those are reproduction William DeMorgan Ship tiles. We got them before the project started and we ended up having exactly enough. The white tiles are called Subway tiles.
 Shower with doors closed
You can see the new light fixture reflected in the glass. 

 Here is a closeup of that new counter top.
As you can see the tiles go all across the back there as well. 
Once the sealant dried, I got to be the first to use the new shower.
It works wonderfully! 

So, what do you think?

Spontaneous is just glad the dust and noise are done.
