Just a few sayings I heard my mama say at the end of an exhausting day.
I've been up since 5:30 am and I'm just now getting to plop down at 11:00 pm. Gotta unwind from moving day. Only, Granny and the Hillbillies didn't make just one trip. We made more like 10. Well, maybe 5 trips x2. And we probably have another full 1 1/2 days to go.
Right now, this is the extent of my decorating.
This star has been yellow, red, brown, tan, gray and now navy.
I am adding touches of navy to my white, tan and gray.
This was my inspiration. I got a couple from Kmart. I love Kmart here much better than Walmart.
The other two pillows were pillow covers from Hobby Lobby. They were 1/2 price and only cost me $12 for both.
It still feels so surreal. Right now I feel like I'm living in a dream. Would never have imagined.
Just checking in. Don't know when I posted last or when I'll post again. The colonoscopy is behind me and I'm good. I had a couple of polyps, some diverticulosis resulting from colon spasms and irritable bowel syndrome. I'm actually feeling better than I have in months. A good purge is good for the body and bowels. Hee! Hee!
The doc explained it this way...We are wired one or two ways. There's Andy Griffith and then there's Barney. Well, I answer to the tune of Barney. Gut reactions to out-of-my-mind stressors.
We plan to close on May 27. There's still much to do. Prayers appreciated.
In the meantime, these babies are enjoying the summer sun.
This little one got bit by a dog today. Little fingers and blood. This BonBon could imagine the worse. Baby girl screaming and me holding her down to wash away the red. It wasn't as bad as I thought. No stitches needed. Then they were rear-ended. My baby had a bad day. We had a bad day.
Getting a Mother's Day picture with everyone was highly unlikely. Will keep you posted.
The house is coming along. There are already some things I wish I'd chosen differently, but I'm happy.
I love the light over the garage.
I think the gray siding brings out the gray in the brick. I'm just wondering. Should I have chosen a lighter gray?
Here's a bigger view from the other side.
We now have front door steps and the concrete is set for the driveway. The blue door is still my favorite but I recently almost changed it because I wondered if there was too much contrast.
I'm glad to have white cabinets again and the tile is another favorite. I think I did good there.
Here's a closer view.
This is not the chandelier that I picked out. It looks too big to me but the designer said we would need the light.
I'm looking forward to a covered deck. Although small, it's enough for us and the kids have the whole back yard. I'll post the yard when it's nearer completion. It's a mess right now.
This is the view from the road. The finishing touches will come. I'm scared that the shutters are going to be too dark. They are a deeper gray than the siding. Do you think I got a little carried away with the gray? Is the blue door too much of a contrast? Should we have gone with the other house plan so I'd have a front porch? I liked the inside layout better on this one and that's our living space. I don't think we'll be camping out on the sidewalk. I just hope we'll love it when it's all done. We've never done this before and so many decisions had to be made in a day. Whew! No wonder the gut is in spasms. I'm one big spasm. Guess I need some reassurance that my choices are good ones. After all, unless something big changes, this is our forever earthly dwelling. Glad our heavenly home has already been designed by the Great Designer of the universe.
