Of course, it brought back so many, many sweet memories of them and it made it even more difficult to believe that they are now 35 and 38.
~where have the years gone~
And, when I found this, I really had a "moment." Brandon only played baseball about 4 years but they were some fun times. He gave up baseball when he fell in love with golf. And, we thought that was a great decision. He and his Dad have enjoyed a lot of fun times on the golf course and it is a sport that he will be able to enjoy all of his life.
Hello house progress....... For the past 2-3 weeks it has been busy, busy at the house. The prep work began by the tile folks for the Master shower and the shower surrounds in the other baths. The prep work is very nasty and has made me wonder how anything attractive can come from it. But, I'm pretty sure it will all come together and be exactly what I was hoping.
This is one corner of my pantry and those corner shelves will hold Lazy Susans. We saw this just a couple of weeks ago on the internet and asked our cabinet designer if he thought this could be incorporated into our pantry and he assured us it could. The Lazy Susans will be installed once the pantry is painted. It will be a super place for canned goods and nothing can get hidden from me. I have never had a pantry so you can only imagine how excited I am about this.
This is the cabinet coming in from the garage. When it was first built it looked like the picture on the left and I felt like it looked like something was missing so I asked our cabinet man to redo it and make it wider. He was happy to oblige and agreed that it did look better once he redid it. He made it narrow because he felt like the corner was going to get in our way as we came through to go to one of the storage rooms. But, he rounded the corner and that should help.
We had him make some changes on this wall of cabinets as well. Hubby felt like that each end of the cabinet should be raised to give a nicer look and to allow space to put items that I might be getting out of the cabinets. I am so pleased and have to give all the credit to Tommy for seeing the need for this. It will also serve as an area to have some decorative items as well.
These are the cabinets we had put in the guest suite. For us not to have planned on making this area (above garage) anything it has worked out perfectly to make into a guest suite.
Things are moving right along and everything from this point on is pretty exciting. And, as I've said 4 other times, we are in desperate need of a driveway and if Mother Nature would hear our plea and give us lots and lots of sun for about 2 weeks then we might be able to get that taken care of.
In the meantime I leave you with this......
