My new kitchen!! Eat your heart out Martha!!

My Mom discovered the real use for duct tape-
taping ducts!!!

The refinished kitchen cabinet doors are now in
place, complete with new hinges and pulls. And
the new stove is ready to cook it's first meal.

After living in RVs for 5 years, I forgot how
large kitchen sinks CAN be.

It's almost a HOME

Here's the bathroom after the new
vanity and wood floor were installed

Here I am painting the living room with
Malted Milk, which is accented with Polar White

I'll be so glad when the painting is finished. I'LL NEVER PAINT AGAIN!!!!

The new kitchen floor, countertops, sink, faucet, garbage disposal and stove are in place. The carpet is ordered and the sofa and loveseat await delivery.
I hired a terrific "Handyman" Butch who worked tirelessly for 4 1/2 days to get everything finished before Christmas.

And who said Arizona is warm and sunny in the winter?? I had to scrape ice off my windshield this morning. And a water line must have froze and broke because my street was flooded resembling a river. I had river front property for a few hours.

A Shed and a Cabin

After spending 2 days putting up this cute little
shed in my daughter's backyard, with her help
of course,

I ventured out into the AZ desert.

My new little Arizona fixer-upper

Actually it's an old stone cabin out in the AZ
desert just outside Quartzsite.

Camp Vigilance

I spend two days with the California Minutemen at Camp Vigilance in Boulevard, CA. I went out on a few operations but we didn't see any illegal aliens invading our country to report to the Border Patrol Agents. Maybe no new ones are coming over at this time, but rather waiting until after the Holidays. Or, maybe our presence is discouraging them. Whichever, I feel we are making a difference in the war against the illegal alien invasion!!
I've posted a link to the California Minuteman web site. Check it out!

(I have since heard that several huge drug busts were made in the area that weekend)
