This is my view today.
I should be ecstatic but I am feeling a wee bit sad.
The last seven years I've gotten to use this room
just for me,
in a house full of boys,
this one was mine alone.
I have a beautiful new room my husband has made me
with his own two hands.
It has modern conveniences - like heat.
( It's about 20 degrees in here now!)
This room here however was my first,
and has a great view and gorgeous light.
Oh and a lock! lol
There's doors at both ends.
My dogs loved to lie out on the porch and sun bathe.
I loved having all the windows open in the Spring and Summer
and enjoyed the breeze.
The boys would come in and bask on the floor with
a book or a toy.
Don't get me wrong I am very grateful to have any space at all
but this one has something the other does not.
It will now become that thing that carpenters wives fear most,
We still have over half the house to remodel
so the storage must go on.
Someday we hope to cut this room in half,
half will be an office and the other half will be donated to
make a larger kitchen.
Sadly all this beautiful sunshine will be
sharing itself with 2 x 4's and
I thought I should pause and say "goodbye".
I sort of feel like this is an episode
of "The Brave Little Toaster".
Moving on here is my new room the day it was done!
One flood and two years of work.
I was lucky to be able to pick my colors, doors
and flooring....I got to help install it too!
There is still a big mess
( hidden on the floor on a tarp!)
but it is getting there.
Really bad view....
Hopefully come Spring and the big thaw
the girls will have a nice place to sun bathe.
Two new assistants!
(They've been up all night working on new designs)
Snowball and Dexter are the overnight crew
making sure everything runs smoothly.
Organizing 7+ years of
crafting bits is really overwhelming
but I'm getting there.
I give you a more intensive update and some before pictures
(which should possibly come with a case of eye bleach)
I hope all is well and you are surviving this dang snow!
