Jeff took a vacation day from his job today, but he worked pretty hard at home. Our home does not yet have a complete set of gutters and he wanted to add to them.
So early this morning, he measured the east side of our house and off to Lowes we went to buy all the parts.
Here he is, just getting started. I helped when he was attaching the long pieces by holding one end and handing the drill or gutter pieces up to him.
The whole job only took 3 trips to Lowes and a lot less time and money than I expected it would.
We've had a lot of rain this spring but no rain at all is in this week's forecast so we will have to wait a while to see how much the gutters help.
Then we needed to do a few errands and since we were right beside one of the best thrift stores in my town, we stopped there and I did a little shopping.
Not shown - 2 pair of shorts for Gavin,
"Blueberries for Sal" childrens book,
some interfacing for future sewing projects.
they had baskets full of thread for 10 cents a spool - I got 22
This embroidered towel was in a bundle of 4 other hand towels for $1.50 - I really like this one but the others are not-brand-new terry cloth and they will get used for rags.
One of our errands was to take some things to Nina she wanted to borrow so we also spent a little time with sweet baby Elizabeth. She is doing just fine and sweet as a baby can be.
