Home again


We got back from our Thanksgiving trip last night.  We left last Wednesday for our destination, and our daughter and son were there with us and enjoyed a nice mini-vacation from work.  We had a wonderful and relaxing time before the busyness begins on our bathroom remodel and Christmas preparations.  Bathroom remodel this time of year...what was I thinking??? 

Some folks have their Christmas trees up already, but I have a living room full of boxes of tile, a new stool, counter top, fixtures and various other stuff awaiting the carpenter to begin.  We have a few things of our own to get done this week before he starts, too.  Yikes!  I think I'll go back!! 

I've spent today unpacking and washing our trip clothes and just hanging out with Stormy.  She missed us and was wanting to be close and cuddly today...not her usual style...she hadn't been without at least one of us for five nights before.  We missed her, too!  We had a friend come in and check on her mornings and evenings so we knew she was okay.  

I'll be posting more later about where we went and one of our favorite places that we visited.  The 1929 Durant in the photo above was seen at this place.  Isn't it a beauty?

If I'm a little scarce here this week, it's because of the work that needs to get done.  Things like stripping off wallpaper, taking off the old tile, painting the wall above where the bead board will go and painting the bead board itself.  Wish me luck!

Until next time...

  2. You go right ahead and go missing again because then I can be assured that you'll have your new bathroom for Christmas, which answers the questions why we do these things at holiday time. It's going to be great. Who needs a tree? Put one up to celebrate once the carpenter is done. Were you in Branson again? It looks as if it could be...

  11. I'm glad you are back - I've really missed you. We got back Sunday. Then it takes a day to get unpacked and cleaned up.

    I know the bathroom will be work, but it will be worth it.

    Can't wait to see pics.

    Good thing you had that trip! I got a feeling you got your work cutout for you! But it will all be worth it when your bathroom completed.

  24. Welcome home! Can't wait to hear about your trip and see how the remodeling goes!! You are very brave to tackle a bathroom project right before Christmas. A few years ago I stripped wallpaper from my kitchen during Christmas season. (I think I have pictures in a past post that shows it...) It was totally insane to try to do that in December!

  27. Hi Cheryl!

    It is good to have you back - I've been pretty scare myself, so I know how you feel. Sometimes it would just be easier to go back!

    That old car was amazing, so pretty all decked-out in Christmas lights!

    Sounds like you had a wonderful time while you were away . . . but now the work starts! We were considering putting in new wood floors before Christmas, but I decided I just didn't want the mess for the holidays! Although, I would LOVE it if my bathroom was finished, sooooo lucky you! Good luck with all your work, it will be so wonderful when it's done!

    Hugs,
    Barb
