I know that it has been over a week since I last posted -
I haven't been sitting around on my hands though.
Actually, we have been very busy!
We have rearranged furniture in the family room and living room.
I am FINALLY getting a sofa for the living room.
I have been trying to talk the hubs into
buying a sofa every since we
moved into the house.
It's being delivered on Thursday and I will be
sure to post pictures.
Of course, I have a little project for the hubs to complete
BEFORE it comes - so he is at Lowe's this morning
buying the wood to get it done.
We (once again, I really mean the hubs) painted our
tiny master bathroom Sunday. Yesterday was
spent putting everything back together
and getting things cleaned up.
I am working on a curtain
for the window.
I have come up with a
that will work
through the holidays,
then we will see what I want to do.
This week we are also
helping my youngest daughter and
with the final touches on
the new nursery
big sister's room
We are also working on some
new landscaping for our front yard.
We have taken out everything
in our two front beds
and the one right under our
The old landscaping was so overgrown
and really needed to be replaced.
While working on the flower beds
we discovered that we are having some issues
with our irrigation system.
So, we have a call in to the
irrigation guy and
are waiting for him to come fix it
before we plant anything.
After all, we don't want to plant new
plants and then not be able to
We picked out the plants we want
at the nursery - so hopefully we
will be able to get all this done soon.
Maybe, before Christmas?
I know it's not happening
(Okay, I know that some of you might question
us planting in December, but remember
we live in South Florida. If we are lucky
the temperatures will be in the 70's -
which will actually make
it comfortable to do some yard work!)
We are also HOPING to get
the back yard fenced during
this time frame, but some things
might have to wait depending
on how much it costs to get
the irrigation fixed.
Guess we'll just have to wait
So what else is going on?
Well, my oldest daughter is coming Friday
for the weekend.
She lives in Nashville, and is going
to be at a conference
in St. Pete
Wednesday through Friday.
We are going over and picking
her up Friday afternoon
and she will stay with us for
the weekend before we take her back
to Tampa on Sunday to catch her
flight back home.
Even though this will be
a quick visit,
it will certainly be
good to see her!
While she won't be able to be here
for the birth of the new baby
she will be back for Christmas and then
she will be able to
stay for a couple of weeks to help her
little sister with baby
and Little Miss.
With everything that is going on
during the next six weeks -
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and
the birth of our second
I'm afraid that it
will be the first of the year
before I have any of the tutorials ready
on the things that we did in the
(the rope boxes, subway art sign, and the headboard)
but I will get those done.
Well, I think you are
all caught up
with the goings on
here. Hope you are having
a good November and I'll
talk to you
