Retirement may not be all it’s cracked up to be, but the benefits are great…for me!
My sweet hubby lived through the kitchen remodel and then he made this:
Here it is full!
*Squeal!* Don’t you just L.O.V.E. it? I do! It’s one of the best thing I’ve ever had! A pot rack and a great place to hang “junk”!
I also have some pictures of the “stuff” from the junking trips my sister and I have taken.
One of my scales:
A vintage step stool (my new cabinets are really high!):
I’ve got some work to do on this…cleaning…a new seat cover!
And this little bear that is so ugly! He’s made from an old quilt and was so sad-looking, I just couldn’t leave him:
And finally, this bird cage that I haven’t found a permanent place for:
Well…I’ve procrastinated enough…I’m working on a quilt and needed a break…so, back to the grindstone! I’ll be back next week with more to “report” ‘cause Donna (sis), Woody (BIL), David (hubby) and I are going to Nashville to the flea market! YAY…more junk!
David and I “took-off” this week-end and ended up in North Carolina! We wanted to see the fall colors before all the leaves were gone. So…we took a little trip to the Smokey Mountains.
We were lucky and found a suite at the Nantahala Village Lodge and Spa!
Our room had a fireplace…a pool table upstairs…a hot tub and a fireplace on the deck!
Views from our deck!
The colors were at their peak on the Blue Ridge Parkway!
The one thing we didn’t do…that now we wish we had…was the Smokey Mountain Railroad trip. We’re definitely going back! And…I didn’t have time to do any shopping in Bryson City! That’s what happens when you take off without knowing your destination! But…that was the fun part!
Something I’m afraid I’m not too good at lately.
Blogging has pretty much gone to the dogs. It’s not that I don’t have the time, I just don’t have the energy. I’m stressed…S.T.R.E.S.S.E.D! And nothing can be done about it. I’m not sleeping. I’m grouchy. I’m mean. I’m tired. I’m stressed.
So…now that you know, let me get on with it and show some of the things I’ve been doing. (Be forewarned…it’s a “picture heavy” post!)
One of the things I’m not stressed about anymore…
Remember how my kitchen looked when we first bought the house? I have others from the first re-model, but because of the fire, I won’t bore you with them. (And as you all know, you can click to enlarge…Just sayin’!):
The Big Reveal!
I really love it. It really gave me fits, because I wasn’t sure how it would all come together and if I had chosen wisely. But, thankfully…all worked. I’m really lovin’ the tile…I ordered it online, it’s glass and I was hoping it would match my dishes…it did!
So…thank-you hubby! For putting up with my stressed-out self and for just being here for me! Thank you my sweet sister, Donna and her hubby, Woody for giving me advise, watching as it went up, and getting me out of the house! I appreciate it!
I’ll try to be back sooner! Donna and I have been doing some antique shopping and I really want to show you what we gotten and what I’ve done with it!
Thanks to you, too for coming back to read and putting up with my “sketchy” blogging!
