Home Projects

Life is full, and we don't always have time to get to some of the home maintenance and improvement projects that we would like to do. But we had an unexpected gift of time this past week ... finding that we have some vacation days that need to be used up this year, we decided to take four days off this past week and focus on some home and yard maintenance. We mixed in times of relaxation along with the work ...

A beautiful time of year, and some days of temps in the 60's and 70's gave us the perfect weather we needed. Gary did some yard work, cleaning up wood from a tree we recently had to have cut down, and also finally had the time to cut down one of our pine trees which had died. Gives us lots of firewood for cold winter months!

I did some major cleaning in our bedroom, including completely going through both of our clothes closets. Such a good feeling. I also hung some sheer curtains (finally!) ... just had never taken the time to actually put them up! Also, I changed some very outdated wall decor in one of our two guest rooms. But my bravest and biggest project was to paint our front door a different color. The color I have been wanting to try for years, is ... red! Will probably be posting some photos soon, but the project is still in process as I write this, so will wait with the photos for now ...
