Duly Noted~

I love when my emailed quotes-of-the-day all line up into one blatantly obvious message... heard LOUD AND CLEAR.

Message #1...
"When the water starts boiling it is foolish to turn off the heat."
-- Nelson Mandela

Message #2...
It's precisely when in the throes of activity, giving 100%, focused and concentrating with all your strength and might, Reenie, that it's easiest to forget I exist at all. Even though that's precisely when I can do the most, with just a nod from you.
Like right now, perhaps?

Coffee.... knitting.... kitty... view.
Quiet morning time.
Time to breathe, reflect, and give thanks.

LR in progress~

Today I finally had a chance to start playing with the new living room!
I was waiting to share pictures until things are 'done', since there is such a huge transformation.... but I realized that it will be a long time until things are "completed", so what the hay, here they are, "in-progress".
Left Living Room wall untouched. Wood paneling and 1974 striped shag rug.

Today, from a bit of a distance... that's my mom.
Slider before....

Today, with Xena watching the Bafflehead ducks swimming in the pond.
(ignore cluttery deck)
Shelves are still a cluttered mess... only unpacked, not arranged.

New couch comes Friday.... will retake pics.
I bought Jackie's purple couch and chairs... totally fun.
(Jackie is moving to a condo in the Pearl. Same time. It's like we are giving birth at the same time. Totally useless to help one another... plus it's funny she is moving to the city and I got a farm. Maybe we will trade homes on the weekends? hmmm)

Walls are still painted paneling, but the paint will just not stick properly to it, so before we trim everything out, Paul plans to drywall. Still need drapes.... no time to shop for now.
I LOVE how my fancy rug looks over the neutral carpet we chose.
So cozy.

Off to enjoy my last evening with my mom before she flies back to PA!

A magical place!

It's been almost TWO weeks since moving day. Crazy.
Still snuggling in and getting to know the place.
I miss my studio BAD, but am easily distracted by all the beauty!
Also pics of the kitchen-in-progress.
