A Update

I told you I would be back to give you a little before and after picture. Its really hard to take a picture of an empty room and see any changes. Here is goes.



Granite is white. It looks so clean and so much better. I will shampoo the carpets tomorrow and let it dry.
Then I will start moving the furniture in the loft and all of the books in here while we paint the loft. Its going to be a long process, but it feels so nice to get things cleaned and reorganized. It may be the most used area in the house. Its where the grand children want to go when they are here and then there are the boys friends. It has so much traffic. With four of us painting on Saturday it went pretty fast.

 I had to get the down stairs all cleaned and mopped and all of the laundry done today, because I just can't stand when my house is a mess with so much clutter upstairs. I wanted to tell you a cute story though.
When Kessie was here, we were sitting outside and like we always do we were talking about stars and planets. I was talking about Jupiter and Mars and the moon. Our two year old grand daughter was sitting in my lap listening to our conversation. She asked me, " Where is Jupatee?" ( Ju-pa-tee ) So now, the planet Jupiter will forever be known to me as Jupatee.

I hope you have a great week. Thank you so much for stopping by.


“I think that love is more like a light that you carry. At first childish happiness keeps it lighted and after that romance. Then motherhood lights it and then duty . . . and maybe after that sorrow. You wouldn't think that sorrow could be a light, would you, dearie? But it can. And then after that, service lights it. Yes. . . . I think that is what love is to a woman . . . a lantern in her hand.”
― Bess Streeter Aldrich, A Lantern in Her Hand

I love Bess Streeter Aldrich.

It looks fresh and clean! Such a good feeling. Love those little people and their special words and names for things.
