Sneakers, Paint, Boxes, and Bruises...

The House on High Street

This week, Scott went away on business for two days, and I so I filled in for him at The House on High Street. Ok, it’s not like I did anything major, and Scott was only gone for two days. Still, I helped keep things moooooving along at the house. I started setting up my sewing room, completed a furniture project, made several trips to hardware stores, supervised workers, and somehow managed to have Scott’s favorite dinner ready for him, upon return. SUCCESS!

Here is a recap of this week, so far, in pictures…

My new running shoes came in on Tuesday. What does this have to do with the house? Nada. The house is my excuse that I had NO time to break in these sneakers.

About thirty LARGE boxes were delivered to our condo this week. We live on the third floor, so I'm guessing our UPS and Fed Ex guy HATES US!
About twenty LARGE boxes were delivered to our condo this week. Mainly light fixtures, ceiling fans, and sconces. We live on the third floor, so I’m guessing our UPS Guy is NOT happy with us. Maybe I’ll make him some biscotti as a token of appreciation.

...Another completely irrelevant picture of routine blood work that looks a lot worse than it felt.

On a lighter note (and back on the subject), this is my sewing room finally looking like a real sewing room! I'm getting excited. And nervous. But, more excited.

Last but not least, (it's only Thursday), 25 boxes were delivered to the house (thank God not the condo). These are materials to assemble our walk-in master closet. I designed it on line. www.easyclosets.com

Over the next several days we will be ordering our countertops; finishing trim around all new windows and doors (in the sunroom and hallway), getting all the light fixtures hung, and hopefully getting vanities and toilets in place…with water! Gosh, we are hoping to be moving in there before December!!  Stay tuned.

EXTRA Ordinarily Yours
