Purging the Shed

Even though I get to work from home, Sunday’s are so hard.  Monday’s are worse.  I told you on the last post that I was going to be spending as many weekends as I needed to start purging our house in order to get ready for our upcoming huge project.  I was able to hit our two bathrooms, as those… Read more →


Hi All.  Monday is showing the ugly side of it’s face this morning. My media has totally messed up on here and most of my pictures were deleted.  Sorry if you are trying to look at a picture and nothing shows. Trying to fix this, but I have no idea what I need to do   Read more →

Fall is here

This. Weather!  I know it is only here for a short time, but ahhh I love it.  The windows are open, the sun is shining, and the breeze is blowing.

Backyard Blues

The Bookcase That Almost Ended Me

Two posts this week!  Record breaking!

Today, let me show you how it all turned out. Before: After: I have some accessorizing to do… Read more →

Setting Up Shop – part 1

Breaking news over here at the homestead.  We FINALLY made huge progress in our office.  I mean, epic progress. Just to show you what our thought process was over the last two years, here was a smallish to do list: We wanted the office green.  No, blue/gray.  No, blue/gray/green.  The color we decided on is far from those Built in… Read more →

Two Chairs Sitting Pretty

Happiest Monday to ya!  Another busy weekend (sort of) in the books.  I am taking this week to really focus on getting a routine situated at home now that I will be working here full time.  The last two weeks was adjusting to not being stuck in an office without AC (true story).
