Catch Up!


I have been neglecting to post on my blog!  Too tired or too busy it seems.  We had a couple birthdays!  This is Cali, our youngest grandchild celebrating her 7th birthday!



This is the fireplace in the new house.



Right in the middle!  2810 will be our new address.  It was exciting for me to see these go up.



Cali was a Cupcake for Halloween!



Cali and Gracie ready to head out trick-or-treating!  It was a beautiful night with no rain and no snow!



Our new kitchen.  I think the refrigerator and stove will go in this week.  The space on the right hand side is where the electronic piano with a shelf above it will go for a TV.  We could get bar stools but for now, I don't think I want them.



Kitchen sink.  There is a little design in the counter which doesn't show up here very well.



Master bedroom closet.  I will have to buy more clothes to fill it up.  More likely I will store my material and craft supplies in here!



Den carpet.  We have this carpet in the den, two bedrooms and the hallway going to the bedrooms.



This is the color of the hardwood floors.



I had a birthday too.  Gracie and Cali will assist me in blowing out the candles.



My beautiful birthday cake!!!!



The landscaping was put in.  I think a couple of the bushes are Hydrangeas and the builder thought the tree in the left hand corner was an ornamental crab apple.  He didn't know much about what kind of bushes they were as the landscaper did it.



Whew!  If you hung in there this is the last one!  Thanks for visiting!

Hello Nancy, It looks like a lot has been happening. No wonder you are tired. It's always fun to see all the children dressed up for Halloween. I like seeing how the house is turning out. Everything looks so bright and airy. It's looking like it won't be too much longer before you can start getting settled in. Belated Happy Birthday to you and yours!

Happy Birthday , Nancy. What a wonderful cake.
And oh, that den--I would LIVE in that room, all that glorious sunshine! Lucky you.
I hope you have many enjoyable memories in your new home. It's lovely!

Hi Granny Marigold, Thanks! I celebrated more than once! Good thing I don't get a year older each time I celebrate! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Sue, Thanks! I think that cake was decorated so pretty! Sorry to say that den is Bob's place to put his desk! There will be a TV in there so he will share it with me for that! Nancy

Margaret said...

Hurray! It's almost time for the big move in - I'm sure you are more than excited! Your home looks lovely and Sue and I think SOO much alike - the first thing I thought of when I saw that den was WOW! Look at all those glorious windows! Happy birthday - by this time next year you will have filled the closet with craft supplies and be thoroughly enjoying that den :)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Margaret, Yes, I was ready to move in a long time ago! The den is for hubby mostly and I will have a long counter in the master bedroom for sewing and crafting. Downsizing!! It will be challenging trying to be a gardener in the tiny courtyard with quite a lot of shade! Nancy

Cheryl Kimbley said...

It won't be long now by the looks of things. I bet you will be happy to settle in permanently. Everything looks so nice.

Have a great one.

Hi Cheryl, It is so nice of you to visit when you have so much going on. It will probably be another month before we can get into the house. Can't wait! Nancy

Leigh said...

Happy Birthday Nancy! What better present than to see such good progress on your house. How nice that you have so many family birthdays so close together. I'm sure the kids love all the cakes.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Leigh, Thanks! Our daughter just took us out to lunch today for my birthday so got to celebrate more than once! Probably won't get into the house till late December! Nancy

Oh, I do hope that you will be able to get all moved in soon. Sorry I missed your birthday . . . wishing you the best year ever!
