Nell, congratulations to your son!!! He (and you!) must be both thrilled and relieved!

Maree, the room looks beautiful, cozy, and warm. I want to curl up in that wonderful blue and white print chair, with a fire in the fireplace, and just read a book. Absolutely comfortable and inviting!

Toni, ah, France! You can't help but enjoy it!

Kellie, my asthma dr always emphasized that drinking water and other liquids helps clear out the lungs and sinuses - so keep drinking!

Did some low key errands, but just felt lazy today. Well, and DH's stomach was sick, so I kind of wanted to keep an eye on him. Tomorrow we're driving to Phoenix to have lunch with his cousin, and then Friday we head off on our long way back north, sightseeing on the way. So we'll have a busy week!

The room looks lovely, Maree.
Hope you feel better soon, Kellie.
Congrats to your son on the job, Nell!

I got a boatload of stuff done today, including food prep, hole-filling, and lawn-mowing. I'm pooped! I even managed to cut and extract part of a large tree root that my lawn mower kept hitting. I'll haul another load of hole-filler tomorrow morning, and may even tackle another root if I'm up to it. Then I'll clean up and dress up for the piano recital tomorrow afternoon. My teacher and I are opening the show with our Mozart piano sonata duet. It's the first movement of Sonata #1, in D Major.

Sleep well!

Good afternoon, team. Good to catch up tonight on your posts. Weíve been so busy packing in tours and drives in Provence. Itís good to see it and experience the vistas and of course the food. Weíve been racking up lots of steps and eating two meals a day, but enjoying it all.

Maree, the room is just lovely. So appreciate your showing us your Ďfinishedí work.
Yay, Nell, for your son. What a relief indeed.
Kellie, sorry to hear you have had such a rough time.

More as I can grab some time. At the end of the days I am so exhausted! And when I get up it is not the morning for you.

Maree I love your room and It is warm and inviting. You did a great job!
Nell Iím so pleased that your son got a job!
Iím having trouble with my cookie decorating homework. The elephants ears are pitiful. Iím half way through my third attempt. I pulled out my projector (yes they make projectors designed for cookies). And hand cut the the dough and then marked up the cookie with where the ear and eye are on the teachers cookie. Itís far from perfect, put itís starting to look like an elephant rather than kindergartners drawing,

Nell hooray for your sons great news. We were all cheering for him to get this position.

Kelli, this has been a truly awful time for you this last week. I hope you are up to a walk today. It always makes us feel better when we can get out for some fresh air.

Maree, your room looks lovely. It looks like a great place to curl up with a book or a grandchild.
Isnt it wonderful when everything comes together.

The sun is shining here this morning but the air is pretty cool. It is a long weekend so no matter what is going on it is always better with sun.

Enjoy your day everyone!

Congrats to your son Nell. So happy he finally got it!

Maree, looks beautiful, very cozy. Phebess, yeah waiting at car dealerships is so boring!

Glad you are doing well Econlady.

I'm getting spoiled with all the resting I've been doing trying to get better. I have been working from home but only enough t get done what absolutely has to get done and then I lay back down.

My head is breaking up this morning, gross. I'm hoping to clear up and get out for a walk then some compound strength moves. It looks beautiful out there... before the rains come again. grrrr

It looks great, Maree, warm and inviting. Don't you love it when a plan comes together?

My son got the offer letter for the job he has been wanting, and we have all wanted him to have. What a relief!! The whole family is excited for him to be working at this new assisted living.

Good morning!

Here is the view of the living room from the hallway.



I have another picture of the space that it's not allowing me to add right now so I'll do that separately.

It was a very full day yesterday! My new entry door was installed and it is perfect. The Anderson storm door is head and shoulders above what we had before. I am thrilled with it. And the staining on the entry door was a perfect match.

I hear my guest moving, so better post this and will try to check back.

Hope all have a great day!!
