Today was the day we decided to go upstairs, change the beds and clean the bathroom and take back my office from all the company. It was lots more work than we imagined when we started out but everything is clean and shiny and just waiting for ... Read more

Ok, so we are going into the city today for a little shopping, banking, etc. BUT I have a hard time breaking out of my routines. I automatically put my sneakers on and go out the door after a cup of tea and after about 45 minutes I remember we... Read more

Three more people in the house cause chaos and fun! I've walked and am going out to the deck to ride the bike but thought I would Spark while it was still quiet. We're off to Blue Ridge today to ride the train through the mountains and we'... Read more

My sweet sunshine is 11 almost 12 and a treasure to spend time with. Late this morning mom and stepdad went for a walk - my sunshine had slept in from the long drive, excitement of arriving and staying up late last night. When she got up we had... Read more

Many thanks to everyone who gave me advice on the scary dogs, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! I found my walking stick and just having it in my hand made me feel better and braver walking by! I may also get some pepper spray to keep... Read more

Today we'll add some hooks to hang plants off the front deck to add a little color. The holly shrubs got trimmed back and there is another shrub out front but I don't know what it is - we'll let those grow a little before we add anything else -... Read more

There is one window in the basement and that is the only one left to be stained and sealed and oh, yeah, cleaned! That turned in to a little bit, bigger job than I ever thought it would. We ran out of stuff so will need to get a little more bu... Read more

I've spent about an hour ironing this morning because I tend to put it off until there is enough to warrant dragging out the ironing board and setting it up. I've got one of the upstairs room for company and about an hours work left to get the ... Read more

OK. so we are convinced that cute little cabins still take a fair amount of maintenance especially since it appears nothing was done to this since it was built. Window trim is taking 2 to 3 coats depending on how much sun it gets. Decks are ta... Read more
