Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Waiting For Final Inspection

Home Sweet Home.....Now all we need is the final inspection before we can sleep in.
The grass was just laid in and the sprinklers programmed.
I was in the driveway when the military launched a new spy satellite. The roar was pretty intense.

The appliances have arrived.
 Now we just have to install them after the countertops are in.
 A day later to quartz countertops are installed.
 They just finished the soffit trim and will be back tomorrow to screen in the back patio. 
 We are now getting stuff for the landscape. Back to Home Depot again....ugh!

Getting Frustrated

Cabinets have arrived.
 And are being installed
 This is my contribution to the master bath. I am now working on the mirror. The wood is cypress from a local saw mill.
 Cabinets installed and I forgot to take a pic after installing the hardware. Quartz countertop due next Friday....I hope!
 Outside of house was pressure washed and Kilz was applied to seal the stucco.
 This is the first coat of the finish color. The entrance door was just finished and installed with the finished hardware.
We are still waiting for the final electrical hookup. All the interior lights, fans, and receptacles are done but the exterior lights have to be installed after the finish coat of paint is done. The problem is it has been raining, raining, raining. Seems like it's always something.
Still have landscaping to do before we get the occupancy permit. Have to have at least two trees and fifteen shrubs. I will also have a banana and papaya tree.
Joyce has gone back home for a few weeks and will return with a U-Haul and our small amount of personal items we had stored.
