Sending you 'random stranger' happy thoughts. Sometimes we have to remember that 'good enough' is not settling, and that making it through one more day is actually a pretty big f'in deal.

I know I'm behind on the blogging and a lot has been going on. Not the least of which is we moved! But first, we hosted Thanksgiving for Richard's family. Loving the new Dining Room table that actually let us seat 6, with room to spare (ok not a lot,... Continue reading

We used name your own price on priceline, I think our room was $75/night for a very nice marriott. And we had a GREAT time wine tasting, it was a fun way to wrap up the T'giving weekend. Wish we were there this year, we'll SKOAL your way.

There are more than glass countertop pictures here but I wanted to put this story down now. Richard's offer on the Mead St house was accepted 11/4/09. And, sometime between then and the Saturday after T'giving last year, he decided it was "OK" to indulge my desire (soon to become... Continue reading

The floors are finished (ok, 1 more sanding and layer of shiny stuff) and they look MAHvalous! The color is rich, warm, and homey, and suddenly we don't look like we're a destruction zone any more. Doesn't the copper look great with the new floors? WhoDat? And, remember a long... Continue reading

The biggest thing my non-visual brain has been struggling with is the floor. What will it look like, all sanded, refinished, and done? Getting the repairs done was helpful, but still not enough. So today, we met our color options. These colors look pretty close on our monitor. Richard liked... Continue reading

We brought the copper to it's new house today And after looking at it, we decided it needed a few more whacks Then, I decided to give it the Ketchup treatment to even the pieces out so the patina will develop at the same rate. Before: Ketchup Splatter: Ketchup Spread:... Continue reading

First, here's the views Ellenor asked for, literally from the front door Portrait then Landscape. We spent tonight after work cutting and taping craft paper into our template for making the copper back splash. We'll see how far we get with the rest of the process this weekend, but since...

We are waiting for the counter tops, but meanwhile, the under cabinet lights went in. We went LED. Also notice the microwave and convection oven are installed, and of course, Richard set the clocks. The HAC vent also moved from the threshold of the new doorway to under the oven.... Continue reading
