Woo Pig misery

What a weekend for football.  DH's Texas Tech Red Raiders did well and beat Kansas.  My Aggies lost to the Woo Pigs (Arkansas).  

And the Cowboys...oh my!  I think I've got that paper bag for my head left over from last year here somewhere...

DH's hunting weekend was a bust which made him grumpy.  His mood did not improve when he learned that one of the guys at work got an eight-point buck on Saturday.  But there are many weekends left to hunt, so we'll fill up our freezer eventually, and I'll have a happy hunter around the house.  Grumpy ones are a bummer.

DH is still doing battle with the raccoons.  One gnawed through the top cover of his deer corn feeder, so he had to do a "weirdly" repair.  Then he caught another raccoon digging corn out of the feeder from the bottom.  That raccoon won't ever do that again.  Next year, DH will get an all-metal feeder with a better varmint cover.  At least we haven't had them waking us up at night trying to get in the trash lately.  Darn varmints.

DH got all the doors put on the kitchen cabinets and we are in business!  I only have one drawer left to polyurethane as DH just made it on Sunday afternoon.  DH still has another small cabinet to rebuild and make a drawer for, and we still have trim molding to install and the floor to put down.  But at least the kitchen is much more usable and stuff is making its way back into the kitchen from the den.  YAY!

We ended up buying an eight-foot counter top to finish out our long counter top.  DH was going to use some solid maple counter top that he had in his shop, but it would have taken him about a day to get it to work.  Right now, his time is more valuable than that.  And we also got to thinking - once we get done with the kitchen, DH will get back to working on the utility room remodel.  One of the things I want to do is unstack my washer and dryer and put a counter top over them.  So we bought enough counter top to do this and to finish up the kitchen; we cut two feet off it and will have plenty left over for the utility room.

I think I put maybe eight stitches in "Bone Cheeks" this weekend.  Hopefully I'll have some time to work on it this week.  Mostly I'm working on getting all the kitchen stuff back in the kitchen.

The kitchen is looking good! I can't imagine how happy you are to start putting things back in "their proper place".

As for 'coons...I could tell you a lot...lol.

Really missed you last Saturday. Hope you are going to be able to come next month or at least Ginger's Retreat.
