HONEY......I'm Home!

Yes we are in our new is about it! I don't care how organized you try to be when you move, it always ends up the same way....a bunch of boxes and you can't find a thing! And what a wonderful weekend it was to be moving...cold,windy and very,very rainy! It was not pleasant!
I did not go to WW this week, Joey was off so we got some things done around here. I was gonna weight on my scale...if I knew where it was!!! My mother make me eat some of her homemade lasagna on Saturday....but she assured me that I had done plenty to work it off. Mother knows best...right! And being a loser has never paid so well...

I also got some wonderful soap from Sugarbush Primitives.....thank you are too sweet!

Oh the picture is of my beautiful holly tree, we have two of them. At Christmas time I am always looking for red berries....well now I have my on stash!
I am getting ready to start painting....
Yes .....the blue kitchen is where I am starting. The shelf liner was soooo stuck I had to put very hot water on it to get it to come off.... I am sure it had been there 40 years (since the house was built!) And look, I started peeling off the lovely counter top and back splash and was happy to find paneling on the back splash. It will look great after I paint it. And remember I told you I wanted wood counter top....well there is heavy plywood under this white and gold....and I am thinking I can make it work. My husband was happy to hear that...but I'll see how it looks.

These are the colors I am using Stony Creek is what I picked for the paneled den walls that is right off my kitchen and I will use it for the back splash.
Can you believe I had already picked this before I went to Lowes...and someone had returned two gallons of I got it for 10$! The Good Lord was making up for the bad weather during the move! LOL! I picked Royal red for my cabinets, it is a Biltmore Estate color and cost 30$ a I asked the paint guy to mix it using the less expensive paint at 14$ a gallon. And for trim work I am going with heavy cream. I just love paint color names!
The Internet service we had before is not available here, choices are limited in rural areas. We are trying sprint mobile broadband (just plugs into my laptop)we have 30 days to try it is pretty good....I can't go back to dial up!
If any one has emailed in the last week....sorry I did not get it! I forgot that would change too! You can get me at
Moving is so hard...but the change is wonderful! And Spring is on it's way .....and what a great time for a fresh start!!!
