Crazy Weather

Yesterday we had snow showers and temperatures in the high twenties ... Last night and this morning the air turned "balmy" ... I can't even depend on the weather channel to help me decide what to wear, or which car to drive (regular tires -vs- snow tires). My friend in Iowa hung out her sheets to dry on the line. It's the beginning of January. Don't worry, I'm thinking I'll just be glad about not having to shovel snow today. Tomorrow the little darlings head back to school ... and I have a gal-friend flying in on Friday for a two day visit. In between there's lots to do this week ... especially having to decide on interior paint colors. After meeting with the drywall finisher last week, he's going to give the public rooms a hand finish similar to old plaster walls (everything old is new again). Hope to get a few new pics taken next week showing our new home's progress. Normally, I'd tell you all to stay warm ... but I think today, I'll close by saying ... stay cool!

I remember those days of picking out color. Good luck!

It's downright balmy here too. I'm loving it! I'm just afraid that the real winter will come late and stay long!
Have fun with your friend, maybe you can get some second opinions on paint colors! Remember my room should be cheery yet restful!

So is your new home going to be an actual home/lodge for guest or are you just referring to your new home as a lodge.

The weather here has been interesting too! But today was simply cold and grey.

Tammy ... we're just referring to our home as a lodge (lol). We name everything :)

Have fun with your friend! How exciting to be getting close to moving into your new home. The hand-plastering sounds nice.

This time last year we had no kitchen and only a bathroom sink to work with. I was cooking things in a crock pot and toaster over that sat on top of the clothes dryer. I did LOTS of painting. It is so nice to have it done. You'll get there! It has been unusually warm here in CT. Where's the snow?
