rennovations. . . .
Well here is an update on the very long projects we seem to always be undertaking on our home.
The arches still are not completely finished but here are some before and after pics of the living room. I wish the first picture was with the nasty carpet in the living room. It was even grosser then. It was so bad that when were living on the subfloor while we waited for the wood floors I kept thinking how appealing and attractive particle board was compared with dingy nasty old carpet.
Of course the only problem with wood floors is once you have them in one room you want them everywhere. . .
Oh and if our house doen't sell this fall I think we will be getting a woodstove for the winter, which will go where the morris chair is. Angelica told me the other day that probably we should get a woodstove. "Mama, it would be a better idea than building a fire in the middle of the floor in the living room." She advised.
Yes I included that third picture to show off Angelica's artwork. I am a shamless mother. . . .
And lastly I am so exited for these next three months, which are my favorite three months of the year. October is the month with of course the best feast days: St. Francis, Our Lady of the Rosary, Miracle of Fatima, Guardian Angels, St. Teresa of Avila, and of course good ol' St. Frumentius.
