     Well, it’s been a short summer, but a longer time than I’ve had time to call my own.  What with a few short 2 day trips here and there, and projects around the house & yard, and….., well I never would have believed that grandkids could take up so much of my time!!!!!  Aside from the above, I’ve been fishing a bit…, and painting…., and doing a lot of readin’ and relaxin’, but not too much writing, as you’ve probably noted .  Other than being busy a lot, I’ve enjoyed it all.

Just a little bit of what’s been going on at Casa del Paul lately….

************************

1. A project for the bathrooms.  I couldn’t believe that this house had not ONE medicine cabinet in any bathroom !!!  (but mirrors galore).  So, I set out to build medicine cabinets because I couldn’t find anything the right size or style to fullfil the need.  Thus the following….

About 50% complete  >>………………………………………..Finished but not stained.  Will be a blend

of Rosewood and medium Walnut stain then about 4 coats of spar varnish to complete.

2. Someone who lives where they don’t have much, asked for some Autumn color.  Never one

to deny a request, Here comes the color…………………….

It’s been a strange Autumn around here.  Some trees, as you see, have beautiufl color but others, more than 1/2 of them are still green, and others are just turning ugly brown and dropping leaves.

  This one is just because she is such a sweetheart…,

3. Even though we’ve had 4 really hard freezes and frost nearly every night for the past 10 days or so, there are some roses who just seem to be saying “Bring it on !!!”  They seem impervious to the cold.  I’m waiting to see what they do with the first snow…

The last pic is a relatively unusual event for me…, 7 blossoms, in full bloom, on one stem !  Amazing !!!

*****************

4.  The Kitchen…, again !  Looked at the kitchen the other day and it just looked too plain…, no pizazz, no style, no character, and no warmth.  Had to do something to change that.  After a trip to the building supply store, ( in the words of Jackie Gleason) Here we go again !

……9:a.m. started with this…………………………….1:p.m. got this far……………………………………….finally finished around 6:30p.m.  and I think I might be satisfied with it…., for now !

*************

Well, that’s about all folks, except to wish all a

HAPPY HALLOWEEN !!!
