I really didn’t mean to do drive-by blogging on Sunday saying all that “I’m back” and everything and then disappear again! Really I didn’t! It’s just that we’re doing a remodel on the living room – paint, new paneling (that Jim made) and a new fireplace mantel (that Jim made); plus we’re going to have the wood floors in the living room and hallways sanded down and refinished. It’s a long process as Jim works on it in his spare time. I’m in no hurry. It’ll be so worth it! So, I’ve been helping Jim here and there when he needs an extra hand and I’ve disassembled and am reassembling my kitchen. Actually just emptying some of the cabinets and cupboards and cleaning and rearranging. Gah! The projects have consumed us, but I’m very excited about how the living room is shaping up. I remembered to take some before pictures and probably should take some in process pictures. I promise I will post them. Our house isn’t big or fancy, but Jim’s work is beautiful and I’m happy that he’s taken on this project.

In case you didn’t know, Jim’s parents built this house in the ’50s.
We bought it from them 20 years ago.
I’m also remodeling my blog! 🙂
