a good day....














Petals are beginning to fall.... the penstemones are beginning to droop... they remind me somewhat of laburnum clusters now. I don't have the heart to toss them... perhaps there is one more day in them yet...

Ran out of steam last night so didn't finish the ceiling...but tonight... got the last few panels cut and trimmed...and voila! New ceiling. It looks wonderful!!










So professional, clean and new looking... and with 4 pot lights in the room as well as the glass block window... lovely and bright. Now for cupboards and drawers...and I might even look for one of those ironing boards that can be built into a drawer and only pulled out when necessary. Which at my house is not often. Wonder who makes those?










And.... I managed to run a load of washing through all by myself. Yep... totally unsupervised. Feel pretty much like a big girl today. Of course, I had the handy info booklet in hand...but I did it. I was feeling so good about it that I went straight to my treat cupboard and "rewarded me". Have you ever seen these? Pretty tasty little morsels... 'course, they are 230 calories per 25 chips if I remember correctly... and they go down so fast.... you won't want to keep them around on a regular basis.

Wow- what a fantastic looking laundry room! All of our renovations turn out to be big problems and we never get the results I want- oh my. Neither Mike or I have had experience doing extensive remodeling, and our results sure show it.

Yup, they'd be dangerous to have around here...

The laundry room is looking fantastic. Hope you find the ironing board you're looking for.
