Well hello there,

Yes, I know - 2 weeks was up a week ago. I am a bad blogger. I've had a great month though and happy report that as summer draws to a close all is well in my end of the world.

Our wedding party went off without a hitch, it was a beautiful day and it seems as though everyone had a lovely time. Our weeks of house guests went well and I did get the house together enough that there were enough beds and space for all the people. I have some pictures but they aren't on my laptop so it will have to wait for another day.

In other news, I signed up for the Favorite Color Swap at the last minute and I was spoiled rotten. I can not even begin top tell you how in awe I was of all the great treats that Ann (let me know your blog address) sent me. There is some amazing wool including Treking sock and Lorna's Lace and lots of great treats to feed my butterfly addiction and for the kitchen as well. I can't say thank you enough for her generosity.

I am off to deliver some more resumes ( I really need full time work this year) and then pick up the newest members of the family... they are cute and there is 2 of them.

Proof that I really do have a house in mid reno for those of you who were starting to doubt it

this ladder and I good friends, we are so close that I was willing to let it hold ( if only for a minute) my new knitting basket, wool ( some lovely mohair) and my recent spinning. The ladder is living in the bathroom today as I try to get the rest of it painted and the basket was a gift from a friend - she had it shipped from Shetland, it's made from sea grass and smells amazing

this is the tub to go in the bathroom once I get it painted and get the floor in... I refinished it over the last few weeks and finished yesterday, except for covering up the white enamel I got on the the outside

ignore the mess admire the logs.... the mess will go soon

but I think that I have enough Home Depot bags to wall paper a room - look there is furniture in the living room, i have to get it looking a little more like a living room this week

Happy news, the kitchen is finished ( well the floor isn't in but it will be soon. I put in the tall cabinet on the left on Sunday, it's even mounted to the wall. I am rather proud of my self

This was last weeks project, the knitting room! the floor needs to be painted ( not for awhile though) and all the bathroom stuff is living in it at the moment but it looks good and I am excited to have a room to store my wool and sewing stuff

with all the painting and house stuff my flowers are sadly neglected... the are blooming but they need a little TLC.

I am in the city running errands and really must get on it. It's hot here, really hot and running errands in AC seemed like a good idea. Then it is home to paint
