Usually I sum up the month of posts when I do one of these ridiculous post-everyday-for-a-month-challenges. But I don't feel like doing that.
I decided to not look back.
Instead I will focus on what lies ahead...fix up the house, fix up the career, fix up the kid, and then see where we end up.
(post options is my friend)

Late night in the train station. Don't you love it when trains are late? We're home now. Wish us luck.

In the garden. Yin yang...weeds and chosen.

Time Saver

Or so I thought. There are many things on my list for today, this might actually take two days. I'm cleaning out, polishing up, hoping my timing is just right. It will take a miracle for everything to fall in place the way it needs to...

Be My Guest

The guest room is finally done. It's been 5 years since I daydreamed about making this space into some place welcoming. And it's been 2 years since I started the project. What got in the way? College expenses for one kid and a major health crisis for the other one. I was a little distracted.

From the front door...

Down the hallway...

Little tiny room...

View from the bathroom...

View from the bed...

Did you forget something?

There have been people staying in this room before it was finished (sorry Don, Martha, and Rachel). Not visible is the power strip in easy access to the bed, so you can use your laptop in bed.

Wanna come visit me?
