House update: things are moving along. Yesterday, the contractor started installing base cabinets, and the closet company installed the shelving units in both of our offices. That's the good news. The bad news is that we're without any sinks upstairs, and have only a pedestal sink in the basement bathroom to use, unless we decide to use the bathtubs. And it'll be at least 3 weeks before the countertops and sinks get put in. I'm seeing a lot of disposable dishes.
Today, I promised a trip to France. Mom took a barge trip down the Burgundy Canal, and she's sharing some of her pictures. You can click on them for larger images. Last minute update -- just talked to my mom, and the picture of the tree on the rocks was taken in Maine, not on her trip. She thought it was pretty (as do I) so she threw it into the mix.
And, a critter report, sort of ... The hubster went fishing Wednesday. For the record, it was about 16 inches long.
