Our House

Ahhh. Remember that trip I took to Seattle?

Well, that was so last week.
This week my home has become Construction Central.
But the good news?
That horrid 70s faux golden marble sink is GONE. Kicked to the curb and replaced by granite.
And look at D's red door! This makes me happy every time I look at it.
The window guys were here today and they replaced every window in the entire house.
It is rather jarring when there is a huge hole in your home where  a door or window used to be. I spent the day running into every room as they took out huge windows, and I kept saying, "WOW. There is a big hole in the wall!" I'm sure the workers thought I was acting about four years old, and at least that irritating. So I took a picture of them to prove it.

This is a shot of D's office sans french doors. He lovingly turned an empty room into a Craftsman's refuge. He added the most beautiful red oak woodwork throughout the room. The reason he never replaced the doors was because he was afraid it would  mess up the woodwork around it. Not to worry. These workers took extra care, and door looks like it has always been there. I thanked them for doing such an excellent job, and I was full of The Happy.

That "vision yet for the appointed time"? I think the work D wanted done is almost finished. He would have loved it. I know I do.  

What a difference a year makes. Welcome, changes. You are no longer an unwanted visitor. Maybe you are a new friend.
