The granite has arrived! The house that we recently purchased was in excellent condition for a fifty year old house. We love older houses….so full of character and this one did not let us down. The kitchen had been updated several years ago with new cabinets and countertops.
The laminate countertops were getting old, stained and a bit tired so we decided to update with granite and add a tumbled marble backsplash which will be installed Saturday. We will have the under mount sink and new faucet. Along with that we have bought new appliances. This should complete the kitchen update for us.
The painting is going well. Its funny you don’t notice how much a room needs painting until all the furniture has been removed. We discovered that every room needs painting. Mike loves painting…..isn’t that nice??? We have only one room left plus the kitchen and mud room to finish painting. The best part of the new house is the sunroom and back yard. We sit up a bit so that makes for some beautiful sunrise photos. The birds are really loving our pole feeding systems and we are loving them.
With all the unpacking, painting and bird watching we have decided it is time for a road trip. We are planning to take a few days off early in February and head down to visit with our friends at Rainbow Plantation. We are trying to coordinate the trip with the arrival of Mike and Peggy Evringham and possibly Gene and Judi Curp. Hopefully we can pull that off. Even with a sticks and bricks we love to travel and plan on continuing with our trips.
