Pictures!!!

Finally some pictures of the upstairs and the rooms I have re-sorted and cleaned. Our room is a different shade of blue, and I have put up some curtains for now. I am hoping to be finished with the upstairs by the end of the week. Then will decide on new places for pictures later.

Our bathroom, from tan to nice and white.



The kitchen from several angles.























Main bathroom, no more sunflowers.




















Hannah's room, it was green and now a slightly different green, and lovely new carpet!

A big week

More changes. It is a big week. We decided that we could spend some money on some of our own upgrades. So it was decided...counter tops. There is such a wide variety of choices, and as per I asked everyone and their brother opinions. I even looked in fancy magazines and finally came up with...I have to decide for myself, I am the one who looks at it more then a zillion hours a day. So.... light=safe or dark=dramatic. I went out of my box and went dramatic, and I love it! At the end of this week our carpets will be put in, another exciting event. After two months of being downstairs I should be back living in the sunshine again very soon. When our stuff comes back into the house I will do another sort, I want to live a bit more simply. It is a new time in our lives as empty nesters. I don't want to spend all my days a slave to cleaning or embarrassed that our place looks pretty tired and worn. We have been given such a wonderful gift.... a brand new place. What a blessing this whole thing has been.
