Flowers and plumbing

I am a

What Flower
Are You?

You have a sunny disposition and are normally one of the first to show up for the party. You don't need too much attention from the host once you get there as you are more than capable of making yourself seen and heard.

I stole this from Susan at Red Dirt Knitter! It's lovely to see what flower a person is, don't you think? C'mon, Mom, take the test. You know you want to. ;)

Quick update, then I must go to bed.

Last night, we put in shut off valves here in the kitchen. There's no leaks, no one had their feelings hurt, and no one threw a fit. (To family who know me too well: I know! Weird, huh?) Skin was broken, though. It's not a true DIY if no blood is shed.

My hands hurt from the removal of the kitchen sink. Hubs and I traded off on the wrenching of the wrench. Plus, that old sink is made of lead. Good NESS! We couldn't get a grip to pull it from the countertop. Then, remembering all the 350lb leg presses I used to do, I pushed up the sink from the bottom and voila! Everything is ready for the new countertops tomorrow morning. Yay!

Wow, I so admire your ability to do plumbing! Here at our house, we are both so plumbing inept that if it's beyond replacing the garbage disposal (husband can do), then we call a plumber.

What? No pics? I want to see you lifting a sink with your legs *G* I am impressed, tho, with all you can do. Renaissance woman knitting, painting, writing and now plumbing!
