Christmas Tub

December 1, 2007

At 9:30 hubby's cell phone rings. He is not around so I answer it-probably Gary saying that he is on his way. Well it was Gary. He was calling to say that he has some things to do at home before they go to sing later in the afternoon. He won’t be able to make it today so he will be out on Tuesday to do the work. It’s funny how I thought all of this would have been done by the end of October (as I had originally been told). Then I thought surely it would be done by Thanksgiving. Then I thought perhaps by Christmas. Now I am wondering if maybe it will be done by Valentine’s Day. Then again…maybe I should leave the thinking to someone else.

Instead of a Christmas tree this year we will have a Christmas tub. Might as well make the best of it and decorate it since it is still in the middle of the living room floor.


  1. Oh this could be very interesting!

  2. I only now discovered your Bathtub Diaries blog. What a gorgeous bathroom and clawfoot tub! Oh how I wish I could have a clawfoot tub. Maybe someday. We had one growing up and I miss it so much!

    I think it's great you've kept diaries of your house rehab projects and are blogging them now for us to enjoy! I'm drawing great inspiration from you and fellow bloggers. Thank you for sharing!


  3. So did you hang ornaments from the taps and string lights around the edge? Candles placed at varying heights inside would have been lovely too... reflecting off the fine porcelain finish.
    Hope all is well and do enjoy the weekend.

  4. Dear Kim,

    Your bathtub diaries are always a delight to read! You always make me laugh! It is wonderful you could maintain a sense of humor through all of this!

    Much love, Paula
