I have a back porch!!!
It’s gonna be so awesome back there.
Our other house had a back deck that wasn’t covered and was much smaller.
I think this one will be much more usable, even in the summer.
The framers are working on my screen porch today—which makes me happy!
The plumbers have started their rough-in and my hardie shake siding is on site and is being painted. (I chose white dove by Benjamin Moore)
Heat and Air rough in begins today and the electrician comes next week.
We’re going like gangbusters.
I’m still working hard behind the scenes to pick cabinetry/counter tops/floors/deck materials and on and on and on.
Darlene and I are working on my workroom–which is a bit of a design challenge since it needs to function as a laundry room/craft room/school room and office.
And it’s not that big.
Today, I’m headed out on a short little day trip with my sister and if I’m lucky, I’ll get to sneak into a few cool stores.
Maybe I’ll even find a swimsuit that doesn’t make me angry.
And then did I tell you JamieKnoxville is coming to town?
I’m so behind on stuff to show you and tell you but it doesn’t look like I’m gonna catch up this weekend.
There are soooo many good segments over at Issues Etc right now.
I listened to Os Guiness this morning talk about cultural relevance (excellent interview) and then there’s one of my favorites Neil Postman
being interviewed about his book Amusing Ourselves to Death, a book about the influence of television on culture and religion. (also excellent interview)
I’m already behind on my summer reading too.
Hope your week is going well!!!
