My deepest apologies everyone! I took a break from life and I didn’t realize so much time has passed since my last post.
I took a few days and went camping with a dear friend and let’s be honest, I needed it! But no worries, life was jam-packed every minute leading up to the trip and it’s been non-stop since I returned.
So, let’s get caught up!
Door color. I know, you’ve all been suffering from sleepless nights contemplating what color I could have possibly selected! Well, let me put your curiosity to rest.
The gorgeous spruce green was the winner! Now, only 4 more doors to go! Every layer of paint added seems to bring her (I have decided the house is a female) shine out a little more.
Then there was hay. 307 bales total were put up in the barn over Father’s Day weekend. Along with judging the car show at Stan Hywet.
Then I taught my first painting class at the house and if I do say so myself, I thought it was pretty amazing! These ladies all were so cool to work with!
I was so impressed with the level of work they created. Especially since this was a first opportunity to paint for some of them!
Then somewhere in the week, this other little project started, because lord knows, sticking with one thing and finishing it is too easy. I am super excited about it, but because it looks like I am crazy at this point…I won’t show you any more pictures until it’s completely done.
But let’s just say, I am taking re-purposing to a whole new level.
Finally, the big project.
The storm cellar.
We have now completed two hugely successful work days on this project. We are scheduled for 3 more days next week and hopefully it will be pretty much done by that point.
I CAN NOT express how much better it already looks and that now, I even have hope that it’s going to be stunning when it’s reconstructed. I am actually thrilled that it’s location is right by the main entrance to the house, because I want to showcase this amazing feature of the home.
You’ll hear more about the gentleman helping with the project later, but I just want to put a massive public thank you out there to Mr. T. Truly sir, this project would have been dead in the water the first moment I dropped a stone on my foot. Your knowledge, experience and tenacity have all been pivotal factors to this coming together. Not to mention, the life lessons you have already instilled in me are priceless.
I’m going to hold back on the rest of my flattery until the project is done!
So, with all of the catching up, it brings us right into the best holiday of the summer in my opinion!
Please have a wonderful, safe and fun 4th of July.
Peace out peeps.
