My blog is named for Mehitable Day, a woman buried in the 1800s behind the Maine farmhouse where I lived as a teenager. Whenever I'd have a day that was especially challenging, eventful, or just plain odd, I'd tell my friends, "I've just had the most Mehitable Day!" And so this blog is where I share the events, discoveries and random musings
of my Mehitable Days. :-)

Lotta Progress, Lotta Pictures!
A lot of progress was made on our future home Thursday and Friday, so let's get right to the photo updates!
BW in the guest room, demonstrating the peekaboo's purpose.
(It will be easier when the obnoxious sticker isn't blocking it!)
And here's what BW was peering at through the peekaboo.
You can even see Red Grade Road, where we used to live,
winding up the mountainside!
We're not sure what's in store next, though we know the sheet rock work will continue for some time; the garage door, back door, and doors between the garage and house are all here; the dog door should arrive Wednesday to be installed in the back door; the fireplace is up in Billings waiting to be delivered; and Todd's already been asking us stuff about soffits, so maybe the siding isn't too far off! We're most excited to see the front porch go up, but the patio, driveway and porch floor concrete has to be poured first and we're not sure when that's scheduled to happen. Meanwhile, we'll be choosing the stain color for our hardwood floors this week, deciding on door knobs (which is harder than you'd think!), and trying to figure out where to store the ceiling fan and all the light fixtures that are on their way!
And while we're waiting for more house-related excitement to unfold, we'll be celebrating BW's birthday on Wednesday! Never a dull moment these days at Chez Laloofah! :-)
