I’ve been on a bloggy break since we got home from New York. The house has been upside down with the construction and I haven’t had a minute to myself without people in and out with questions etc…. Thankfully it is soon to come to an end as they are just finishing up a few things inside and the outside is coming along well.
We are very happy with the results and know we will use the new rooms a lot. We have always loved our little sunroom even without it being winterized but it did get a mite chilly out there with just the gas stove in the wintertime. That is about my favorite time of year to be out there especially if there is a nice snowstorm blowing around us. Love watching the snowflakes drift down.
So……the little sunroom is gone and a new bigger one is in it’s place. Noodles has already claimed his chair and spends lots of time snoozing out there or watching the birds. Munchie has had a hard summer with the workmen here, she is very afraid of people she doesn’t know and will hide all day until they leave. So for three months she has spent most of her time under our bed or outside under FIL’s porch next door.
The horses have been a constant source of entertainment for the crew. Scooter is king of the hill and lets everybody know it. Kipper got his little fat behiney kicked the first day so keeps out of Scoots way now. Nick still thinks he’s the boss so there are a few confrontations here and there. The vet was here on Friday and I mentioned that Lil’ Bud seemed a bit off so he gave him a good check up and found out that he has cataracts. I wasn’t expecting that! He still can see well enough during the day to get around, be ridden etc…. but can’t see well at dusk or at night. We will monitor it but he is way too old to be put through a surgery. If he should start bumping into things we will address the situation but the vet said this is usually a slow progression for which I am very thankful!!!
Have any of you watched The Pioneer Woman’s cooking show on the Food Channel? I caught two of them but was gone the other two Saturdays that it was on. I guess there are only going to be four for now. It’s cute but that gal sure loves to cook with butter! I think I gained a few pounds just watching! Everything looks yummy though I will admit!!!
Here’s a few pictures I took tonight of the sunroom, I will get the pictures from upstairs next post. In this one the girls have moved the coffee table over and are doing homework. I love how the top lifts up and makes into a table.
Looking the other direction. That white spotted blanket is Noodles’, that’s his chair……..
This is looking towards the dining area and the other set of doors goes into the dining room. There used to be a window there but we took it out so we could have two archways plus it didn’t make much sense to keep the window looking into the sunroom. Both archways are the same even though the right hand side looks wider.
I finally got a place to put my antique sewing machine that belonged to my Aunt Joyce, it has been down in the basement for several years.
Guess I’d better get the kiddos in bed as this is a school night. Miss T and one of her friends is spending the night. Homework is done and baths taken so they are ready to hit the hay!
Will try to get back into the swing of things now and get around to visit you all. Happy Fall!
