'twas the third night before Christmas

...and all through the house [well, at least in the added-onto-the back-0f-the house combination laundry and television viewing room]

I am still installing moldings around
windows and doorways
- the floorboard is now done

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I'm trying ...
I'm going as fast as I can

There were six windows which I replaced. Four of them now have trim moldings and two are still awaiting this finishing touch. Then there remains one of three doorways that still requires molding, and it is a double-wide opening at that. All-in-all I MIGHT have the windows trimmed by Christmas ... the double wide doorway will have to wait.

Now, they still need to be painted, mind you, but they're almost all trimmed.

Can I have an "AMEN"?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

delaying factor has been the season - the 'ringing the bell for the Salvation Army' Season. The two weeks before Christmas is my usual time to 'man the kettle' and 'ring the bell'. It has cost a little extra this year ... that being those hours I would have used to continue the now over 6-month long project. I am not complaining, just making excuses for my continued delay.

Check me out about Easter and I'll bet I'm completely finished.
