Texas Room Day 29!

What a day! The winds continue down here in south Texas. Actually they kicked up even higher during the night and it was really rocking the motorhome. Don't know how strong they were, but the 35 mph winds yesterday were considerably less than last night. By morning it was back to the 35 mph winds and John had that to contend with while he put down the skirting around the Texas room.

Around noon, Lowe's delivered a partial order (yeah, thanks for that Lowe's and for NOT calling before you came). The refrigerator was not in and that is what we wanted more than anything. But the water heater, washer/dryer, and the bathroom vanity was delivered. We just set that stuff in the Texas room and perhaps tomorrow John will get to it. Tomorrow is technically his last day for us, but if he gets some time next week before he leaves, he may come work. We don't intend to do anything once he is gone. Terry needs to rest up as he hasn't been able to rest properly during the day. Today it was so hot and just being outside all day in the wind was tiring.

So we are getting closer with the room, but there is still a lot of work to be done. All the interior doors, trim, still some painting, water heater installation, w/d installation, kitchen cabinets ordered but not yet in, A/C/heat pump, etc. We plan to finish it up when we get down here next fall. But the worst of it will be over before we leave in a couple weeks.

Till next time. . .
