Stand Up and Be Counted!

Today is election day folks and regardless of your political views, it's the day when you stand up to be counted. As a woman and mother I can tell you that there is much at stake. It was not that long ago that we as women didn't have a say in what went on in our country. When all you could do to contribute was to whisper in your husband's ear and hope that your voice was heard.
Now we have a voice and we have a say .
We stand up for ourselves and for our childen.
Stand up today and be counted, VOTE!

A Quick Update!

I've been busy. Homechool is back in session, GP is up to his old tricks trying to weasel out of work and watching for the next holiday. I'm up before dawn and finding I need more time to play catch up. Oh, life is good. Busy hands are happy hands is what I say.
But it's not all work and no play around here. Last weekend I paired up with Ms Troublemaker herself, Lynn (Painting Thymes Needfuls), whom I just happened to meet in Blogland (and folks wonder why blogging is so much fun, duh! You meet people without leaving home, hello?!)
Anyway, we went on a Road trip out to the boonies, to a place called Country Mischief...and look what I found... (No, that handsome guy actually lives in my house. The cabinet, the cabinet's what I brought home!) Isn't it the bomb? GP was so happy with his new addition that he actually helped me carry it up to his room, without me having to resort to the "Mom is so old, she needs help" story. And now it's just waiting for a couple of toggles to make sure it doesn't pull the plaster right off the wall. It's wayyyy heavy.
Anyway, I have loads more to share but I'm running low on pictures. I really have to get better at taking pictures. I'll take pics of my new wood Fall decorations and post them soon.
Hope you're having fun too. The weekend is coming up and I'm heading to Rhode Island for another trip to Brown and Hopkins Country Store, OMG! Put that place on your destination list, and bring your spending $$$ because you're not likely to leave empty handed. I'm psyched!
Gotta run, but I'll be back soon! Have fun, B=)

Windows, Done!

Although the outside of my house is still very much in distress, the inside is beginning to look a lot like home. These pics were taken yesterday during the day in the hopes you would a have better view of the finished project. The shades are down to keep the glare out of the pics. But you can see the new twelve over twelve grid, can't you? Aren't they cute?
No painting or staining on the schedule. Still much cleaning to do in the office and the kitchen where everything landed clearing the way for the office windows. OMG! It's so bad it looks like an episode of Hoarders, and NO, there shall be no picture sharing of the "Work in Progress" zones, LOL!
We are now ready for another semester of Homeschooling. The Homeschool Zone is now Open for Business!
Electricians coming in tomorrow to work on the bathroom and the studio... another great big mess. UGH. Home Improvement is not for the faint of heart! More pics as I clear the mess!
