It's getting there!

Just a quick Hello! Today, the renovations have come suddenly to a (almost) finish! The kitchen will be a while yet, because there are some problems. Problems which make me mad thinking about them. Can you say, measure twice, cut once??? Anyway, I don't want to focus on the bad right now. The upstairs bedrooms are DONE! The hall is done, love the tiles. The dining room is done, the laundry room is done. My living/craft room is done also! Yeah! The powder room, not so much, but hey. Pictures coming soon.

You can see part of the hall here. The pups waiting at the basement door, REALLY wanting to come upstairs already.

Oct. 5-Diningroom looking out to the basement door-3
Why wont you let us come upstairs yet? - Because I don't want you two to scratch my new floors, and my new doors. But -

Well, I let them come up, and after a little sliding across the wooden floors, Denny ran upstairs, and wanted to get into his old bedroom AT ONCE - scratch, scratch, scratch.
Happy was interested in the dining room, the kitchen, and every other nook and cranny. Well, back downstairs with you two!

I'm quite excited that now we actually can start thinking of moving back upstairs soon!
I was sick this last Sunday, a really bad bug, which kept me in bed, after I took care of the pups, I didn't want to, but had to crawl back into bed. Monday was good, but today the headache was back, but no fever. Good.
I've knit the first of my faceted rib socks, but had to do a last minute marathon knitting, for a birthday gift. A pair of socks, which have to be done by tomorrow. I'm all ready to kitchener the toes shut. Good!
It's raining, and it's dark, but my mood is light!

Congrats on the progress. We also had a kitch problem which resulted in a delay but your quick shot looks lovely. The poor boys look so lonely peeking through the door.

Hope you feel better soon.

I love those two faces peeping through the door!! You must be so excited that parts are finished, and I hope the problems are sorted out soon and the rest is finished as well.
I like that Happy and Denny are good inspectors of the new work!!
I hope you are feeling much better now???

I wish you a speedy recovery.

YAY for end being in sight! It will be so nice when you get to come out of the basement to your improved home! You really have been so patient!

Sharon said...

Sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well and I'm glad you're doing better.

Congrats on surviving the renos!! I knew you'd love your 'new house' when it was done. And the really good news, you'll NEVER have to do this again. ;)

Oh, those scratchy pups. They're so cute and your floors are so nice!

Hope the headache goes away soon.

Glad to hear you are feeling chipper and knocked that bug out quickly! Can't wait to see your new craft room ~ and all the other improvements ~ how very exciting for you!

Measure twice and cut once. That could also be said of lawyers or any professional!

Glad you are feeling better and that the house is almost finished!
