Tuesday Talks

It has been a crazy month since we have moved into the new digs.  I feel like I have barely had time to connect with all of my guests here on the blog.  I barely have found time to post the recipes I was sharing for the different events and groups to which I belong.  But things are finally calming down around here.  The light at the end of the tunnel is very bright right now.

So we locked up our babies and found a few minutes to shoot some photos of the (mostly) finished project.

The flooring is nearly complete.  It is only missing the trim between the carpet and wood flooring that had not been sent with the order.  Hopefully it will be in soon and the installer will come back out to finish the project.  The window treatments in the great room are scheduled for installation on Thursday.

The master bedroom is entirely complete.  I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with my tropical oasis. It is like we are going on vacation every time we walk into the room.

Tomorrow starts the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies event.  I am travelling the world for the next 12 days and sharing cookies from a different Country each day.  This is just a sampling of some of my cookies that I took with me to our Alpha meeting last night at the church.

Mel, for her part, is very comfortable in the new home.  She no longer calls it the new house just Grammy and Grampy's house.  She loves coming to visit and we adore having her.  It is going to be a perfect Holiday Season!!!



  1. Love the pictures. I love how your master bedroom looks. A seaside oasis is always a great place to lay your head. Happy you are nearing the end. Have you started Christmas decorating yet??

    1. Not yet Paula. Blinds were installed today. Frank will be working on the cabinets that will flank the fireplace tomorrow and when that is finished decorating can commence.

  3. Thanks a lot for sharing these photos! I also like to make holiday photos to remember all the good things we've been thought http://skywritingservice.com/blog/how-to-choose-perfect-oysters
