Let's Catch Up!

Hello! The lovely sunshine called to me all weekend and I stayed away from my computer!

So let's catch up:

Renovations are finally done ~ hooray!!!

Photos of 'before'....

And the 'after' photos.

New siding, new front door, new side light, new window above the door. Very exciting!
New mailbox and new light and of course I showed you my 'creation' a few posts back. All that is left to get is house numbers. But we can't find what we want and we figure that there is no hurry because anyone we would want to visit us knows were we live anyways! :)
But what I've learned? Always add at least 30 days onto the 'completion date' quote your contractor gives you!
And I got a 'kitten fix' this morning! This wee sweet kitten was at a farm that I went out and took 'pregnancy' photos for a new mom and dad to be.
Errrr.... I'm not really sure what I was supposed to be doing with my lips there. Giving kitty a kiss I guess.
Darling orange kitty ~ so cute!
I have a bunch of things to show you of what I've been up to since I haven't posted for over a week ~ but I will catch you up over the next few days.

Right now ~ I am off to catch up with some of you to see what you have been up to!

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday evening!!!

Er, that's what EVERYONE does when they hold a kitten or puppy, for that matter. They purse out their lips like this and, then, they make the sweetest and cutest voices and I am SURE that the wee things appreciate all of the loving kindness! =]

Your house looks lovely and so fresh! You must feel like you have a new lease on life - especially now that it's done!

Love, katy

Oh what a sweet little kitten! Looks like a baby Hobbes! Adorable! (At first I thought the kitten was a new family member!)

I love how your renovations turned out! Looks like a brand new house! As a kitty momma, I have to ask - has Banjo figured out how to get to that window above the door by the banister? Kitties make me so nervous!

Linda Robinson said...

What a great feeling it is when the renovations are over.. It does looks fresh and inviting.. and the front door look fab. Now you can sit back and enjoy..

That little kitty is to cute. It makes me want another kitten.. but my old cats would not like that much! It seem like the older they get the more attention they want! I'm OK with that.. :)

The siding looks nice the way it comes all the way down now and the door window and side window are very attractive ... it all looks great.

And that little kitty ... well, maybe Banjo needs a companion!

Beautiful home you have there! Love the new addition of that window. I bet the added light is heavenly!!

I really do love what you did with your door! This is what I'd like to do as well. Our current front door has no windows and I really enjoy having as much natural light inside as I can.

The kitten is adorable!! I hope the sweet boy that was "rescued" from your office is doing well too!
