|My new work space. Waiting to be painted come winter.
There was an beautiful old velvet bedspread that I washed and thought I would like on my bed but after trying it for a night decided it was just too heavy and it made great black-out drapes for Tyler instead. I'll post photos of them after Tyler gets the curtain rods up and we can show them off properly.
Over the last 2 weeks we have done a lot of cleaning and figuring out where everything goes, and how (or if) everything works. We have a bit of a mystery going on with the upstairs shower. No water.

The bath tub fills, the toilet works as does the sink but not the shower. I know it did at one time as I cleaned all the old soap residue off of it when we first moved in. Tyler and I have both checked everywhere for a shut off valve to no avail. From the basement up... no shutoff taps.

Thinking they are in the ceiling of the dining room but until we can take off the ceiling tiles we just wont know. I think we will move the lines to go around and under the tub when we redo the upstairs bathroom. And put the shut off valves where they can be found.
I think we finally have a roofer coming in 2 weeks to re shingle the roof. That will be awesome and a big piece of mind taken care off. Most of the contractors here where busy until fall; so here is to hoping that the fellow does a great job and we will not have to worry about a leaky roof over the summer.
But I must say it is beautiful sitting here in the mornings looking out onto Barrington Passage with coffee in hand. Watching the fishing boats go out. The crab boat collect his traps and all of the sea birds coming and going.
Tyler even managed to take a picture of a deer waking through the yard.
