Remodel

Ugh. We are in the middle of some remodeling. A complete exterior overhaul really. I am so excited for the changes, but never anticipated the amount of work it would take to get there. My husband and I both come from long lines of do-it-yourselfers. A blessing and a curse I am convinced! This weekend both of our families joined in and we replaced all the windows in our house and a patio door. The windows are all in but some Sheetrock repair and trim work is still needed. This week my father-in-law has started replacing the siding on our house. Here is a most lovely shot of our front yard, giant construction dumpster and all!

Anyway, sorry about the once a week posting. I keep thinking it will improve but unless you want to see my progress with a shop vac it might be like this for another week or so. I miss you all terribly and can't wait to get back to actually making something (besides 3 meals a day for lots of working men.) Take care!

I know the feeling! The only creative things I can cram in are painting walls and taking photos of walls. Bleh!

For a second there, I thought I was looking at a photo of my back yard. Same deal going on here - siding and all.

Hmmmmm - I almost thought that was my house and my words. It's amazing how much remodeling takes up of your life - but so worth it in the end!! Can't wait to see finished project!
