Monday Musings on Tuesday…


Things are changing quickly around here!   That’s the loft area with new carpet in a color called Cinder.  It’s a mix of gray and beige, which I love.


Here is part of the master bath where we (and by we I mean my brother and son!) put in Italian porcelain tile flooring and wood in the closet on the left.  My job was usually to help clean up, purchase materials that were needed and pick up lunch ☹️

One day on the market and we had four showings and an open house.  Then a full price offer that I accepted by the end of the day this past weekend.

Barring any inspection or financing issues, we are back to furiously packing up the rest of our stuff for storage or moving to oldest’s house where we will be living.  I know it will be bittersweet when we leave.  We had so many wonderful years at that house.  But I’m hoping the family that’s buying it will make years of great memories there, too!

Monday Musings on Tuesday…


(I started this last Friday but, once again, time got away from me…) As I write this, a crew of three is installing new carpet up the stairs and in the loft and hallway of my house.  Which meant the boys and I were pulling up old carpet and padding, pulling out about a bazillion staples and vacuuming up dust and debris last night.  And that was kind of a typical day lately.

I’ll post some of the pictures of home improvement things we’ve been doing mostly ourselves, with the help of one of my brothers and sometimes my stepson and grandson.

Getting a house you’ve lived in for 27 years ready to sell takes some work.  And my dear hubby was a bit of an electronic packrat, so going through all that stuff is a little daunting.  At one point the boys were saying they found some stuff that they thought was to make a bomb!  (That I did recognize and part was an AB controller hubby was going to use to sync the Christmas lights and another part was handheld pieces for a drinking game!)  So even though it’s been a little sad, we’ve had some laughs, too.

Youngest and I are officially ensconced at JP’s house and I’m meeting with my realtor tomorrow to put my house on the market.  It’s too big and kind of lonely now with just the two of us and no dogs.

The picture is from the kitchen renovation.  New countertops and backsplash, original cabinets.  What do you think?

Yay, Yay it’s Saturday…

So true 😉


Yay, Yay it’s Saturday…

Well, this weekend anyway…
