My husband and I could use a good massage about now, we have been very busy around our house. Our plan was to pull up the living room carpet and lay down hardwood floors, it has turned out to be much more than that. Once the carpet was up, we decided the walls could use a fresh coat of paint. Which meant the Lattice Boarder had to come down first. Of course after the walls were painted, the trim around the French Doors 'cried out' to be painted too. I was already working on another project, that we had to let go unfinished just before Thanksgiving, because we didn't want to be working on it when our daughter and her family came for the holiday. I have one more coat of paint to put on the woodwork in there today and our powder room will be finished. Since I STILL DON'T HAVE MY CAMERA (cursing to myself here) I don't have any pictures to share with you.

We got over a foot of snow Saturday, so having projects inside to keep us busy isn't bad, just a little hard on the body as we've gotten older. We haven't been out of the house, other than to walk the dogs, our driveway is 150 ft. from the road and it's still snow covered. Usually the sun melts any snow we've gotten by the next day, but it seems this time it's sticking around, with the weatherman predicting more for Tuesday and the weekend.

Hopefully my NEW CAMERA will arrive soon and I can take some pictures of our recent projects. Until then.....Ciao...... stay well.

I know what you mean about one project leading to another and another. Why must this BE? LOL I still haven't painted over my multiple splotches in the basement. I'm just about ready to paint it back to the original color and call it a day. I hope your camera arrives soon.

Hi ya cutie, love the picture .... I'm sure you could both use a massage. I cannot wait to see all of your projects!I'm so glad your camera "finally" arrived. Man alive that has been a long wait... I have "so" many projects to do around here, there just isn't time enough in the day. I "slowly" mark them off as I get too them, and surprise surprise another one "magically" appears. I wonder how that happens? lol... Take a break and enjoy your hard work darling.. Happy Valentine's Day!
