Baking bread and old houses

Went and enjoyed  a walk at the park today with the dog and the wife still looking for spring here, it was in the upper 30s while we were out,  a brisk beautiful morning. We hiked about 3 and a half miles at Downs park along the Chesapeake the bay looked nice and smooth even with an steady wind from the north, made me want to be out fishing. Left and stopped to get some burgers at Five Guys and noticed my tire was almost completely flat so hopped on over to the gas station and aired it up and hoped that would get me home which it did. Once home took some soap and a spray bottle and found a hole. Got the plug kit out and promptly broke the reamer. This was the second Harbor Freight tire plugger I have broke. I broke the one I put in the wife SUV back in January it doesn't pay to buy cheap tools I about nearly drove the reamer through my hand. Luckily when I broke the wife's I bought a good set for her car so I pulled that out and manage to plug the tire. Then came in and me and the dog took a nap for the rest of the afternoon and I needed that been fighting off a cold for about a week and a half now. When I woke up I got inspiration to do some baking and just happen to have some over ripe bananas so through together some banana bread and put dinner on. Venison goulash and corn bread YUM!
Yummy banana bread

While I was uploading my cooking pictures I came across pictures of my mothers last house that she owned before she past. I took pictures of the work that my brother in law and I did when my mother bought it so I figured I would post them here.

The house was built in 1910 and we remolded the entire first floor new hard wood, ceramic tile,  granite fire place surround and wainscoting I will miss that old house but not the amount of work that needed to be done to the rest of it somehow I lost the pictures of the bathroom that I built it was truly unique with a walk around shower wall so my 95 year old grand mother could just use her walker and walk in. If I find them I will post them later. Spent the rest of the night getting tax stuff together and lets just say I need to move to a new state and possibly a new country.
