Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Hard at Work

I'm so excited! Today the fence company sent over their workers to put up our picket fence. Well, the posts for our fence. The mister thinks he can do everything all by himself (with me helping a little). So it's a red letter day when he lets someone come over and help. Thank you workers!

While the workers were working in the beautiful weather we are having the mister and I were down in the basement working on the guest bedroom. The mister was taping the drywall and I was filling all those little drywall screw holes. There are an awful lot of them. We still have the craft room, bathroom, and hall to do. Sigh.

Ilove your bay window ! How exciting to get a fence...I have always wanted a cute white ranch type one. When you mentioned old maid...that brought back memories for me. cherry

Have a wonderful weekend,

Lookin' good. Dad always says there's only one way to eat an elephant... one bite at a time. I'm glad he got help with the fence. Can't wait to come visit.

I need to do another stalker drive-by! Ihave to see your new cushions and promising posts. Lucky. I'm jealous of your soon-to-be picket fence. I need one with electric currents to keep the kids in.
