HAPPY THANKSGIVING


THIS IS THE VIEW OUT OUR DINING ROOM WINDOW
 TODAY. WE GOT A LITTLE THE NIGHT BEFORE
BUT THEN IT PICKED UP YESTERDAY. I LOVE
THE BEAUTY OF FRESHLY FALLEN SNOW.
THE TREES ARE COVERED AND EVERYTHING
LOOKS SO FRESH AND CLEAN. HOWEVER, I'M GLAD
IT DIDN'T COME A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. ON
MONDAY I GOT A PHONE CALL FROM THE PLACE
WE ORDERED OUR NEW BEDROOM CARPETING FROM
AND THEY WANTED TO INSTALL BOTH ROOMS
YESTERDAY! OH MY, I STARTED TO CLEAN OUT THE
ROOMS AND CLOSETS NOT REALLY KNOWING WHERE
IT WOULD ALL GO. IT TOOK ME ALL OF MONDAY
AND TUESDAY TO DO IT AND OF COURSE I HAD
TO WAIT FOR BRIAN TO GET HOME IN THE EVENINGS
TO MOVE THE BIG THINGS.


POOR ZOE GIRL DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO MAKE
OF THE MESS. AND YESTERDAY WHEN WE DISSEMBLED
THE LAST BED AND SHE DIDN'T HAVE ONE TO CRAWL
BACK INTO SHE WAS VERY CONFUSED! NOT TO
MENTION WHAT WAS ALL THIS STUFF DOING
EVERYWHERE? SHE DOES NOT LIKE THINGS
OUT OF PLACE AND WILL BARK IF THERE IS
SOMETHING AMISS.


MORE CLUTTER....


YOU GET THE IDEA.


HERE'S OUR OLD BEDROOM CARPETING.
IT WAS 25 YEARS OLD AND CREAM IN COLOR.
WELL, IT USED TO BE ANYWAY!! BRIAN
HAD TO PULL THE WALL TRIM OFF AS
WE HAD PUT THAT IN AFTER THE OLD CARPETING.


HERE IS OUR ROOM AS OF THIS MORNING.
I JUST LOVE THE WARM FEELING OF THE ROOM NOW
WITH THE DARKER WALLS AND FLOOR. I MANAGED
TO GET OUR ROOM BACK TOGETHER LAST NIGHT
BEFORE BED BUT STILL HAVE TO GET THE OTHER
BEDROOM TOGETHER TODAY. FORTUNATELY WE
ARE ON OUR OWN FOR THE HOLIDAY AND
BRIAN IS OFF UNTIL MONDAY SO WE CAN PUTZ WITH
THINGS TO OUR HEARTS CONTENT. WE STILL HAVE TO
PUT UP THE CURTAIN RODS SO I CAN HANG MY
VALANCES AGAIN SO THAT IS ON OUR LIST FOR THIS
WEEKEND. I WANT TO START DECORATING FOR
CHRISTMAS TOO BUT MAY WAIT A FEW DAYS LONGER.
DON'T KNOW IF I CAN HANDLE MORE MESS JUST NOW!


WHILE THE CARPETING WAS BEING INSTALLED
I STARTED HOOKING THIS RUG FOR OUR HOME.
I AM GOING TO SWITCH OUT MY OLD RAG DOLLS
RUG FOR THIS ONE FOR THE HOLIDAYS. I
HOPE TO GET IT DONE THIS WEEKEND.

FROM OUR HOME TO YOURS, WISHING YOU ALL
A BLESSED THANKSGIVING. WE HAVE SO MUCH TO
BE THANKFUL FOR.

Sounds like a busy alternative holiday for you. Love the rug. I have never tried to rug hook with wool, looks like fun.

Happy Thanksgiving Lori!...seeing your furniture stacked everywhere reminds me all too well of how our house looked a couple of months ago when we had our floors replaced...yes it sure does feel good to get everything back in its place!

LOVE the new room! Just the right shade darker too... it really does warm the room up just right! Too funny with that little Zoe running around telling you things are out of order! LOL! ;-)

Linda said...

Wow! Your bedroom is beautiful!!!!!! You need a day or two of rest! We had new floors put down in all BR, LR, DR, and hallways in a two week period this summer and thank goodness the end result was worth it! I felt much like Zoe!!

Poor Zoe! What a cute picture of her, looks like she is wandering around aimlessly. That's the way my dog is too, likes to have things in their place and not much on change... so spoiled!

I adore the dark red and mustard colors in your bedroom. Very beautiful Lori!
