April was a month of progress, pleasure, and plight. We worked on a number of projects:
The master closet although not complete is well on the way to being finished. All supplies have been moved to the closet and out of the living room, dining room, and conservatory. Every weekend in April we — Charlie, my friend and I — did a task or two toward the completion of the master closet.
New Attic Stairs in The Cottage
The Cottage tenant had the stairs to the attic replaced with the hide-away, pull-down attic variety. They are much easier to handle as well as sleeker on the ceiling. Soon she’ll paint the door to match the ceiling and they’ll all but disappear when in closed position.
Crown Molding in The Cottage
Cornice molding in the Cottage as added a finishing touch to the walls. The white trim also sets off the pale grey-green of the ceilings.
By the end of April plants were well on the way toward feeding us.
Although not on the list for April Charlie got busy in his garden as the time was right. He pulled weeds, tilled, and planted.
The weekend after Easter Charlie and I went to see The Doo Wop Project in concert with the Baltimore Symphony. They’re a group of men who starred in Jersey Boys together singing classic tight harmonies . They can really sing and apparently love to perform. Our seats were in the 4th row so we really enjoyed all their antics: singing, dancing, and bantering.
Bridal Shower Planning
Finally we’re getting the house ready for a bridal shower.
I have been working on a menu and festive set up for a the party.
The week after Easter I was called to jury duty. I checked in for Monday and Tuesday by phone and was not needed. Finally on Tuesday night I checked in once again and was dismissed for the rest of the week. I never had to go to the courthouse — woo hoo!
Did you have April sun or showers?
