Light My Fire!
Ha, got you! There's nothing like getting the morning chill to dissipate than a roaring fire in the fireplace!! One of the reasons my husband and I bought our Circa 1900 house; it has three fireplaces! Oh, to decide which one to use today!
All kidding aside, I have been very remiss in my blogging. Hence, this is my attempt at beginning once again and to let you know that the topic, for awhile, will be the progression of remodeling and updating our home.
My husband, George, is a contractor who is an awesome fine trim carpenter. With a bit of time on his hands between jobs, he looked at our ugly, old, dreary kitchen and said to me, "I'm going to finally remodel our kitchen; it should be completed by April." All righty then .... I figured April was coming, regardless; it might as well come with a new kitchen. AWESOME!!
Here's the catch ... George decided that homes built in 1900 have lots of little rooms, so he said, "Let's rip out all those little rooms and make one BIG room." Is your imagination going wild? Well, it should be because we are now living with ONE bathroom (upstairs) and NO kitchen and the entire back half of our house is down to the studs!! Oh, did I mention that the temperatures here have been FRIGID!
Are you prepared to watch the transformation? It's going to be fun (I think). HaHaHa. I already have many photos that need to be put in some semblance of order and labeled, so give me a bit of time to perform a miracle.
Hang in there, and I will try to make 'some' sense of everything. Please feel free to let me know if I am no longer completing my sentences or have the ability to laugh at myself or the circumstances.
So far cooking while wearing my winter coat, muffler, earmuffs and mittens is still amusing. However, it's quickly losing my interest - FAST.
Any and all suggestions and humor will be MOST appreciated. Encouragement is welcome at all times.
Stay tuned, and until next time ..... Light My Fire!!
