We spent this weekend doing a little decorating, hanging curtains, moving furniture here and there...this is my bedroom.
another shot of the tapestry chair in my room...different lighting and i liked them both so you get to see both
we put the light fixtures up before the curtains then we had to move the fixtures because of the curtains...a little backwards...
we finished the entertainment center bridge...stressed about that one but Barbara figured it out and our wonderful neighbor Robin helped put it up
moved the computers etc...
Barbara's too

spiffed up the place for a little party...our first.

Hello all my faithful have no idea how busy we are staying moving in to our new spaces. lovely picture on the tv huh...well this is our new tv and entertainment center...not quite finished but we are working on it. the cabinet on the floor goes above the tv and we are in the process of figuring out exactly how to secure it and the tall cabinets on each side to the wall.
new couch, love seat and lounge chair...thank you Grant and Gina!
the boxes are dwindling...too slowly for me but we are getting there
the back and side yards were leveled...a little dirt added and hopefully some irrigation and grass next
unfortunately it poured today so this turned into a mud fest for a was not fun
the patio is getting closer. we are collecting all our bricks and looking for more. today we found a couple hundred more on craig's list and will get more tomorrow...if we have calculated correctly we need about 200 more.
it really is a bit of a mess but soon...
the driveway preparation is coming along and the concrete should be poured friday
Maggie's garden is also undergoing a renovation.
sorry I took so long getting back but I will keep at it.

I am back...if only for a moment as i have to head out soon. We have been crazy busy and this is truly the first few minutes I've had to blog and it is a rush job at that. I have more photos but no time to download so i will try to get back later to finish up.
the bath tub is finally hooked up and operational!

my bedroom has furniture...of course there are still lots of boxes to be unpacked in this room but that is a serious understatement!
more boxes...
the mini blinds in the laundry room are up
the sink in the laundry room is hooked up
the siding is painted...the trim however is not
front porch
front about to be replaced...
south side and carport
boxes boxes everywhere they can be stacked they are stacked!
behind the couch

the siding is primed a mustard yellow so it is difficult to see very well but this bottom left of this photo is one of the colors we are trying
this is the second color we are trying straight will just have to check back later to see which one we chose!

My closet is quickly filling up!
my furniture is in- for some reason i now have underlining and can't seem to turn it off???

the bed is made and the hangers are my attempt at keeping a certain dog off my pillows...and it works
my bathroom cabinet is painted but the doors need a trim and will then need painting
i know this looks chaotic but we are getting there
the pantry is bursting at the seams with the combination of two households...can't wait to start cooking! the gas will be hooked up tomorrow...woo hoo!
a few finishing touches in the clawfoot tub bath
the brown towels really pop on the "pillow soft" blue/green
a little glass shelf has been installed above the tub
my furniture has been moved out and the white wicker bedroom is temporarily ready for guests...still needs a coat of paint or two and the floors will have to be redone...somewhere down the road

the living/dining room is getting back to normal
the carport however is not...
we do have too much stuff!
the POD was delivered this morning for the last time. note the original pickup date of 8/5/09. a year ago tomorrow!
if you have never seen a POD being delivered it is quite fascinating...of course in my haste i have downloaded the photos backwards
the big frame lifts it off the truck and rolls it into place

the siding is almost done
