We have very animated conversations about how the kitchen should be laid out-----I keep saying it's MY kitchen but for some reason, even Chas thinks he has the best design option going - sooooo we listen. :) As the work in the kitchen moves along, the girls and I continue to wash walls and baseboards, spackle, and scrub floors (a big thank you goes to my mom for buying me a steam mop!). Next weekend, we should be able to sand, re-spackle, sand, wipe the walls down, and put some paint on Grandma's room! After that room is painted, the living room and foyer get paint.
We've decided to plant Dogwoods and Red Buds along the driveway--keeping the height of the red buds consistent with the Dogwoods. Hosta, daylilies, dailies, azaleas, and a Weeping Willow are planned for the property also. There will be pictures of some significant change for you all soon!
