Monday's Musings

Monday's seem to roll around all too quickly these days.  And, surely I'm going to wake up one Monday soon and be in our new house.  Surely, just surely!  Bet you'll be just as glad as we will.  Guess I'll have to change my subject from the building process to the moving in process and then the decorating process.  That might be enough fodder for another year. ~grin~  Meanwhile, today's musings...............

Hubby and I celebrated Father's Day with my Dad on Saturday.  I grilled some pork tenders and fixed the trimmings and he was a happy fella.  I would have never dreamed 4 years ago that I would still be blessed to have my Dad.  But, the Lord had other plans and we are grateful.  While he only has about 20% of his sight, he is mentally sharp as can be and that's worth so, so much.  My prayer for him is that when the Lord gets ready to call him home that he will slip quietly away in his sleep and not have to endure any more suffering and pain.

Our little Princess and Sweetheart are getting to enjoy a wonderful time with their extended family.  They have been in the Seattle area with their Dad and Mom.  Hubby has a sister that lives in the area and it worked out perfectly for our son and his two uncles to attend the US Open.  And, gave the Aunts plenty of time to love on our girls.  Precious times!

 And, things are moving along with the new house..........our appliances were delivered this past week.  Not all of them have been installed but they are there and ready to be.  We chose to go with all GE Profile series.

All the towels racks were installed and they sort of stick out like a "sore thumb" without towels on them.  But, that will be remedied shortly after we get moved.  I'm very pleased with the design and the oil rubbed bronze finish on them.
And, my friends, this is a handrail! They are in all bathtubs and showers.  Yep, Hubby and I have tried to think of everything we possibly can that we "might" need as we age. ~did I really just say that~  But, it is what it is, and if we live long enough there are many accommodations that we may need in the process.  But, I think this is the best looking hand rail  and I'm betting that you would not have known it was a hand rail if I had not told you.  And, yes, we had all higher toilets put in and wider doorways and hallways.  We will be prepared and will hope that we never need to put any of it to use. ~wink~

All the knobs and pulls were also installed last week and I'm equally pleased with them.  Each are just a little different in each room but not a big difference.  My favorite pulls are the ones in the left hand picture.  Not sure I could have ever made the choices if it had not been for my wonderful designer.

The finishing touches were added to the kitchen.  The embellishments were added to the small island and to the panel above the cook top.  I love both of these.  The corbels were put on the big island and still need to be stained and finished but I think they are just beautiful!

Things are coming together slowly but surely and we'll be calling this "home" in the coming weeks.

  1. Oh Leah... Every thing looks so great! Love all the hardware and embellishments! I tried to fix the "no reply" but don't know whether I was successful. Can you write me back and let me know if it worked? Thanks so much. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Goodness I can just imagine how ready you must be to get IN there, lol. It's been a long time coming. It is certainly turning out just beautiful, and all the little extras you might be needing in the future are certainly the smart thing to do. Have a good week!

  4. It surely is all coming together and beautifully. What patience is required!!! You are so smart to prepare for the later years when hand rails and assists are necessary. Love the finish on all your hardware. Yes, your designer has been a god-send, I think.

  7. Hmmm....wondering if I should think along those lines too? Everything looks lovely, and I know you're more than ready to move in. My daughter lives less than 5 miles from the golf course. It was an exciting finish!
