Photo a week...















Hi everybody!! .... haven't had time to visit many blogs .... hope you still stop by from time to time ...and...I will be back to visit yours when I find a few more hours to rub together in a day....

We are "stuck in" ... re-doing bits and pieces to run more cables.... getting some paint matched to the one room that was finished and painted a few years ago..they no longer make the colour..but, finally got a perfect custom match. Thank you Mr. Benjamin Moore man....
..... pulling up carpeting around the edges to re-float some areas of the underlying cement in hopes of getting no ridges in the new carpeting..some old tiles under the existing carpet were removed and probably should have been left. Then... decisions... whether or not to carpet the exercise room..or...great idea just tossed out there for us to ruminate upon... paint the floor!! I don't want cork..don't want laminate... the carpet will be too cushy to be safe... I am researching rubberized colours....

None of the four rooms on the lower floor are useable now.... all in various states of disrepair...but... new paint now on the office walls... and the trim is being painted as I type....
























We have had the light carpet for years...and now...are looking at the dark colour samples.... going for the gusto..... we enjoy the medium dark colours we painted the upstairs...so..... colour it is!

Uh, oh..I smell the little chicken..must away to check and baste.... lemony/garlic-y/onion-y chicken... all three of those ingredients stuffed into the cavity.... some butter smeared on his body... spices liberally sprinkled...and voila...a tasty morsel.... .

Mmm, chicken sounds good. Can't wait to see the final pics - sounds like it's going to be stunning (the decorating I mean - although I'm sure the chicken would look good too!!)

Hi Vee,

I look forward to seeing the exercise room all finished.
Roast chicken with a lemon and garlic stuffed in the cavity is so much lighter and nicer than stuffing.
I cooked a chicken like that the other night and it was so moist and tasty.

Hugs

I don't envy you all that work but it will be well worth it in the end.

Do you think either of us will live long enough to see our homes completely finished? I'm beginning to wonder!

MaryO said...

My goodness! It must be a challenge to live among all this upheaval, but I'm sure the end result will be worth it!

I can't wait to see the end result of all these renovations. You will have to give us a little tour :)

That chicken had my mouth watering at the end, YUM!!

Have you heard of Bamboo Floors?
That might be an option. :)
I wish you luck with all the renovations.
Thanks for getting me hungry with that wonderful chicken. :)
