by Edie Wadsworth on May 30, 2011

Darlene and I have been at it again and I couldn’t wait to show you the design board for the living room. It’s been such a fun collaborative effort, although she does all the hard work of placing and measuring and editing and I do all the fun work and sending a million links of […]

It was a magical night….. perfect weather, perfect spring night and just the right amount of banjo music and pulled pork BBQ! There are so many things to love about a square dance but one of the most appealing is that it’s just a big bundle of fun  for the whole family, regardless of age […]

Project Restoration:: the Garage {and the CD winners}

by Edie Wadsworth on May 26, 2011

The pictures you’ve seen so far of our house did not include the garage. We had to use concrete spanners and just got those in last week. Now the garage is all framed up and we start with shingles tomorrow, I think. The framers will begin working on the porches.   I’m also finalizing all […]

Clear eyes, full hearts

by Edie Wadsworth on May 19, 2011

Of these four dear children of mine, three of them have blue eyes. Blue eyes that they got from me, which I got from my daddy. Mine have known a river of tears and it’s always been easy to let them fall. Today, in the wee hours, before the hustle and bustle of the day, […]

Project Restoration:: A Video Tour of the Framed House

by Edie Wadsworth on May 13, 2011

View from the boat (taken with Stevie’s iphone) Warning: Do not watch the following videos if you are prone to motion sickness.

Mother’s Day Weekend, part 1

by Edie Wadsworth on May 8, 2011

Someone  (ahem, I won’t mention any names but she loves Loretta Lynn and knows all the lyrics to ‘Satin Sheets’) had the bright idea that we should go spend Mother’s Day in the mountains with Grannie (my dear mother whom we’ve called Grannie since I was in high school). Steve and I have a 40 […]

by Edie Wadsworth on May 6, 2011

We’ve made lightning progress this week. Some of the 2nd floor trusses were set yesterday and the rest will be set today. I stood at my very own kitchen window and watched the waves crash into the rocks. Elea and I took a picnic lunch out to the site and ate our sammies while we […]

This is after one and a half days of framing. First floor trusses are scheduled to be set tomorrow. Could I be any more giddy? Can we move in next weekend? My builder is likely to tire of me soon. Love to you all. Go hug your walls. Three cheers for walls. xo, edie
