Wow. I did not know you did that. Kudos to you. I have looked at their rugs as well. They have some beautiful pieces. I didn't want another stripe so close to the large striped rug in the family room but I am also looking for a pair of runners for the back hallway. I will definitely look them up online. Thanks for the heads up. Sent from my iPhone

Thanks Mary. I was so happy to hear from you. I read this a couple of days ago on my phone but I am just now getting around to responding. It's all going to be great. I wondered if some people, including my daughter, might be put off by my confessions but I am beginning to think it is a feeling all Mimis, Grammys or Gigis go through. Stay in touch. p

Thank you for the suggestions. I sometimes think I have so many books I want to read but when I am ready to start a new one I find that maybe they arent what I want to read now. Crazy, but it can be a little stressful to pick the next book when you know you cant read them all. :D

Well, I hope it doesn't take us ten years but I agree, I think it will be worth it for us too. We have friends coming to stay with us in January so I am really pushing to have it finished up before Christmas. Happy Halloween. Thanks for stopping by. p

Thank you for your encouragement. It is now Monday morning and the installation continues. I'm always relieved when they show up. LOL

We did use the noseeum mesh and I can't say that I can tell a difference other than there is less visibility through the screen at night. I was in the water quite a bit last month and definitely was still getting sun so it may offer a bit more UV protection but getting a little color is definitely happening. I still ended up with a couple bites but I can't be sure if they happened on the lanai or while we were at the beach. I would do it again. The cost difference wasn't too bad and I am obviously sweet meat for those little suckers. I remember when we looked at new construction homes and so many didn't have a cage. They looked beautiful but we love cocktails by the pool at night so I'm just grateful for any screened protection. Mike and I are back and forth because of family up north but one of these days we need to connect. 😎. Thanks for swinging by. As for you, you have been an artistic machine lately. So impressive. I need to find my creative space down here. Maybe when we get through the remodel. 🙄 P Sent from my iPhone
