A Month Since My Last Post... Where does the time go?

So where to start.....
Well this is the house progress.... We now have real windows! They are working on the roofing right now.... Our doors arrived yesterday, but haven't been put in yet... they are in the front yard... I can't wait to see them in. That black plastic on the ground in this shot is to try to absorb heat so the ground thaws a bit quicker... they can't finish the roof until they have the 10 foot covered deck on, and they can't do that until they dig down a bit more.



Tony and I made our first big couple purchases this week.... One we found a fab deal on tile. So we bought enough for 1100 square feet... seems like a ton, considering it would just about fully tile our house we are in now :) heehee
We also went shopping at the furniture store and bought a few new items... a couch, loveseat and chair... sofa table and end tables... and 2 NEW lazy boy recliners... We haven't bought new furniture since about 15 years ago when we were first married and furnishing our first house we bought.... So it was RATHER fun....

My whole family has been sick, not me yet... I keep getting a little sick and then drink several emergency packs to keep my immunity up... so far so good. Tori was the sickest of the bunch... fever for over 10 days... today is her first day back to school.... And today she turned 8! Where has the time gone?!

Well drop me a line and let me know how ya'll are doing.... :)
Hope to craft a bit in between decorating a cake and doing laundry and babying my sick hubby....
