Windows are in....Yeah !

Well the windows are in and it's really progressing nicely. Do you see the slope of the roof?? It looks like a challet and I'm going to look into having a tow rope installed so I can run my own ski lodge. The loft will serve as a warming spot where you can stop for a mug of mulled wine. So do you think cowboys wear high heeled ski boots??? That makes me really wonder if they do or not. I suppose I'll have to ask permission to run a ski resort in the neighborhood but hey it never hurts to try something new now does it! Just kidding but it would be a neat idea for an old broad to run her own business out of her house now wouldn't it! The contractors started another house around the same time as mine and tonight we saw it all lit up with the lights in and everything so hey maybe I'm next. I'll be in before you know it and you are all invited to come and see it in person and of course be sure to be hospitable and bring a dish to pass and your own drink. How fun that will be for all of us. Talk soon.

Totally awesome! Looks ready to move in right now. So glad that they are progressing and you will be able to settle in soon. Any plans to visit your son anytime soon? Would love to have you over for some stamping! ~chris

YEEHA! Looks like you're catching up to me, although now I'm getting BILLS for stuff like gas & 'lectric and those are sure no fun. Kinda depletes the stampiing toy necessity budget. Your house looks SO pretty. Keep showing us the progress. If those construction workers get wind of the fact that you've got a whole lot of friends with heat guns and scissors, maybe they'll work a little faster! After all, Christmas is coming...

I can only imagine how excited you must be Pat...I am so happy for you...nothing like a nice clean dwelling to make you give you a "real feel"...I love my house...I redecorated, or remodeled it about 6 years ago and nothing makes me happier that getting off of work and coming home to "my" house :) TFS!

It's beginning to look at lot more like "home" now! How beautiful with that decorative dorm window on the 2nd floor!!! I love that along with the slope of the roof! I can almost visualize you skiing off there onto a neighbor's roof! LOL TFS Pat, I'm just thrilled for you in watching this unfold!!!

Looks like you got it going on! So much progress in so few days! I'm hoping that is a trend for your workers and they get a move on. Is it possible you might make Christmas in your new home? Or is that a Pipe dream?

Oh Pat, I would so love to come for a visit and slide down your ski slope! I would be hootin and hoolerin.......right after I fell off that slope and broke a leg!
Love seeing the progress pics. Hugs my friend

I just have this energy level that I've never had before. The only thing that's changed is I've started wearing my Power Balance and nike running shoes
