Playing house

Well, I've managed to keep myself busy lately. Here's a little of what I've been up to:

You know you're getting old when cleaning your floor makes you excited -- a little before and after

My first baby blanket project for the baby hope chest. It's sofffft.

The kitchen before actually being finished. One of these days I'll get the crown molding up and the paint touched up. We painted it orange, sanded and painted the cabinets, put new hardware on (new as in used to be my parents, hehe), and pulled down an ugly valence thing.
Before (I have to point out that this is from when we first moved in -- those ugly grapes were painted over immediately):

All of our camping stuff has made the move from the upstairs room to the downstairs office. We are slowly cleaning out the brown room to make space for future baby. This was the first step. Yay!

I'm also currently pondering the next winter park race. Despite my extreme dislike for the course when we pre-rode it, I'm now 75% sure I'll be racing it on Saturday. Hmmm...

Good job on the house, it looks great!
