The crown molding begins in the dining room

Greg and I finally did some home improvement this weekend - the start of crown molding in the dining room. We haven't done much since Memorial Day weekend. We have been either too busy or too hot. Greg did make a temporary top for the dishwasher a couple weeks ago. New countertops are not on the to-do list quite yet. This temporary top prevents the dishwasher from tipping forward when we are loading it. Everyone knows I'm prone to hurting myself so Greg knew it was a necessity to secure it.

What have we been doing instead of remodeling? We celebrated our one year anniversary. The first year just flew by. We have friends who are getting married July 4th so a few weekends have been filled with pre-wedding celebrations. I was on a Relay For Life team one weekend. Another weekend was spent canoeing. I can't admit that much of this weekend was spent remodeling...only Sunday afternoon. Friday night we went to the movie theatre to see Year One. I don't recommend it, unless you are looking for a couple of quality hours of air conditioning, like us. We will see a lot of movies in the next few months. Saturday night we went to a local summer theatre to see their performance of A Streetcar Named Desire. Today actually brought us a nice breeze. I'm enjoying it right now, sitting outside under our big maple tree. The wonders of wireless internet.

We have blooms from the plants Greg planted ealier this year.
