Hello to all!

Just wanted to post a few new pictures of what is happening at the house!
A few weekends ago Ivan layed carpet in one of the back bedrooms.

Nice soft padding!

And nice soft carpeting!

This past Saturday, Ivan finished the last coat of paint in the master bedroom, went to Home Depot to get carpet, then layed it!  I was so excited to see this room finished!  The accent wall is a dark grey, with all the other walls light grey.  It turned out just like I hoped.

To add a little bit of color, Ivan suggested a dark red curtain.  I think it looks great!

This obviously is not anything with the house, but I had to tell Diane about this cake.  We celebrated my parents birthday this weekend and I was planning making a cake with two layers and frosting inbetween.  Ivan suggested putting some of Diane's jam inbetween instead of the frosting.  It was delicious!  Thank you for the jam!!

So the house is almost done.  There is one bedroom and the loft/stairs left to be carpeted, and a whole lot of trim, then we will be done with what we planned on doing when we bought the house.  I say "when we bought the house" because there is a lot that has been added to the list, but that stuff can wait!

That is about it!

I love the grey. Seems daring to try, but turned out AWESOME!

Hey! We dare! Worst case scenario: have to repaint. Give it a whirl, it's kind of fun to try something different sometimes. As they say; variety is the spice of life. Hoping the weather warms up a little as would really like to get going on trim. I'd really like to stain and varnish it before installing it and with the pregnancy not real crazy about the fumes in the house so want to do it in the garage, but it's a little too cold for that yet. Fingers crossed for warmer times soon. Taking a week off of work in a week and I hope I can make good use of the time! #9

Thanks for posting the pictures and comments of what you are doing.
Glad the jam worked out. We got back Tuesday about 5 p.m. Will try
and tackle laundry today, then perhaps add to the Newsletter and get them out. We had a great trip doing and seeing lots. I wonder when I type on here it takes awhile for the letters to actually
print. "to act" printed after I was on "u". Mom

What? I'm confused!
