Miscellaneous updates

We continue to work on the house (I promise) but we took a few weeks off to plan and begin some larger projects that are all still underway and also enter in a little home improvement contest.  We hope to complete painting and replacing the shutters this week so stay tuned for more updates.

We entered our kitchen into The Worst Kitchen in America contest by the DIY and Food Networks.  We created a video (including rap written by Andy) to enter into the contest.  Unfortunately, Andy and I can barely stand to watch it (pure embarrassment) and I just don't have the nerve to post it here.  If you really want to see it you can find it on the DIY Network website.

Andy was able to install the faucet and part of the shower.  It's crazy to see water running out of a faucet in an otherwise unfinished bathroom, but at least we have running water (and no leaks!).  He began working on the wiring this weekend and discovered that we really needed to add a new circuit and rewire the existing bathroom so he had to take down the entire ceiling and feed new wiring from the basement.  It was a productive weekend.  I'll post some pictures ASAP.

The garden is also doing great -- lots of tomatoes, squash, eggplant, and beans.

The tomatoes that are yellow on top of the heirloom variety called Mr. Stripey.  They are delicious!
