Mom's bedroom and bathroom are completed. The living room needs a few more touches. The basement is still a major work in progress as we unpack boxes and sort. One of these days we will actually find time to start our morning with coffee at the little table outside the dining room window.

I was told that I can't move furniture in yet- there is still electrical, HVAC, plumbing and touch up work to be done. This morning I decided to be defiant. I moved ladders, trim, and doors so I could reach the one sofa that remained in the living room. I uncovered it and since I could not find my handy sliders, put dust rags under each leg and started shoving. I shoved it to the window where mom and I sat and ate our lunch of yogurt. Ah, heaven! What a change from the kitchen table! As we sat and looked out the windows I asked mom what she was seeing and she said that she was looking for a bear to come out of the woods! I kept looking for "the others." You see, we have been watching LOST on DVD and are on season 3. I had heard about it but never watched it. I am hooked!

Planning landscaping for this area. Found a variety of lilac that will grow here. Think we will put one at the left corner so mom can smell it from her window. They are adding a third airconditioning unit at the right so some shrubs in that area to hide them all.
Trey ceiling in mom's bedroom.
Patio to go outside these doors from basement family room extension.
Mom and I are planning our craft area for this space.
You can scroll down to earlier posts to see more pictures on our addition.

The addition is coming along quickly. This week we will have insulation and drywall. Then the fun of flooring and painting will begin!!
The brick mason will be here on Monday to add the brick up to the window. They added shakes to the peak to match the other peaks on the house.

The Spring started off as usual. High hopes for a new garden. The raised beds were formed in what we thought would be a good location but having never lived through anything like this before, we soon learned that they had to go....
Even the grill had to move.
Very soon the landscape we knew was going to be gone.
And in its place bricks, blocks and boards.
We also learned that construction means dirt- lots of it. Our builder has moved some to the front as the base of an island bed we want to install.
Our basement family room is gong to be HUGE. Mom and I are dreaming of the craft area we will have!

There are many decisions to be made. Unfortunately blogging is not high on my list of priorities at this time. It does look as if mom will be moving in with us. Now SHE is THE decorator so....I am hoping together we will be quite a team and will enjoy sharing our fun with Blogland in the near future!

Today I read Luke 3:11 He answered and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise. So appropriate for the weather this entire nation seems to be facing and a reminder that we need to think of and help those who are not prepared to deal with these temperature extremes. The scripture also got me thinking about the state of our country. Seems our government wants to be the one doing all the helping using our money. I oppose big government and its social programs. Unfortunately the minute you say that, some say that you are cold and uncaring. Quite the opposite. If big government would stop stealing my money (yes, I do believe it is stealing) then I would have access to more money that could be given directly to those in need.
Looking forward to the new year and all that the Lord has in store.
