Karen...thank you...it is just angel hair pasta with ground sirloin...heavy on the sirloin, light on the tomatoes and a little cheese thrown in. It was very good.

Mary, the paint is Sherwin Williams Cashmere. It is the only paint finish our painter guy uses and we really like it. It's flat and yet has depth and it is washable.
My youngest granddaughter...Gabi, is redoing her room. She is not only taking the carpet, she is also taking furniture. Gabi is 10...I think I have had a huge influence on her...as far as "decorating", anyway.:-)I can only hope I have been a good influence on her in other ways.
I found the sunflower picture a few years ago at Home Goods.
Troy Carpet Center is doing the carpet and wood floors. All from Mohawk. They've done our flooring for over 30 years. Way back when the present owner was a floor layer. His son was here giving us a bid. Do you live in the Maple by McBride?
Penny we are living here amidst the changes.:-) The flooring should be finished mid May. Then we will have the furniture etc. moved from storage and the real settling in will begin.
Sharon...the rug is from Overstock. It is wool from Safavieh.
Thanks, Jo! We sold our condo two years ago. We can still visit the lake, just won't have our own little getaway place.

Thank you so much! As soon as I find my Summer clothes, I will do some posts. Not sure where they are buried in storage. Most of my clothes are here, but those Summer things were still packed away and went straight to storage.:-)

Thank you Carol! It is engineered hardwoods. This is my first experience with it. Apparently easy to care for. It is prefinished. That is all I know about it. It is a Mohawk product Acacia wood, which is very hard. Acacia Barrel is the name.

Rita, When I heard about that explosion I could not believe it! I've been thinking of you all!!

Judy, thanks so much. We had to take a loss as well. But we believe it will all work out. They are paying cash, no inspections. That definitely works!:-) All the best with your surgery and recovery!!
