I would like to point out that I do not have my iron or ironing board, so I washed and dried them and hung them up as is. I needed some privacy and some curtains up. I will iron them after I get my ironing board.
Living room: there are six sheer white panels in the middle.
On each side is a light gray panel with the darker gray design. I think I like the way it looks. What do you think? I worry a bit about privacy at night, but I don’t want big heavy drapes here either.
The kitchen. I had to put up both of these rods and replace the mini blinds.
Our bedroom: please excuse the box of clothes on the floor. I forgot to bring my skirt hangers so they have to wait until Dennis gets here. I love these curtains. They are so breezy and delicate, yet there’s a mini blind behind it for privacy.
This is the bathroom off of our bedroom. It’s not a big room but I just love the looks of these flowery curtains. They are more gray than is showing in this picture. They are also fairly thick to give privacy and there’s a mini blind behind the curtains. I hung that too! The wrinkles really show here.
This is the spare bedroom which will be Piper‘s room. I just got plain gray room darkening curtains for here. The same exact curtains are hung in the office.
The patio door has one big panel made of the same material.
And speaking of the office, I put together the printer stand to! There is supposed to be a bookcase that matches, but it is still on back order.
Here is the backyard. Do you see that strip of bare ground behind the line of trees? I dug up 10 packed full, 5 gallon buckets of dandelions from that strip alone. I sprayed them almost 2 weeks ago and they were still blooming! I dug five buckets full last night and then I got up at 5:30 this morning and dug another five. I was trying to beat the heat since it got up to 92° today. On the left you see the red rock bed. There is a bunch of groundcover in there that is weeds that I have to spray and dig up. I ran out of time in the cool of the day. I may go back out tomorrow morning and spray.
This afternoon I planted an ornamental grass and some geraniums in that planter at the end of the rock wall.
The Harley Davidson sign will come off of the shed as well as the sign that says 1903. Our deck is being stained on Friday by the same guys that painted the inside. I would do that myself but I am allergic to stain.
That’s mom’s house that is the pinkish color, next door.
It was a good day today. I returned some mini blinds that wouldn’t work in the family room and was able to get potting soil, four solar lights and some weed spray with the money I got back. Then I went to another store that Mandy told me about yesterday and bought another pot of red geraniums for the front steps. Little by little it is starting to feel like home. Once Dennis brings the U-Haul trailer with my kitchen things, I will be able to do a lot more cooking. I bought the bare minimum with me. Then, two weeks after that the POD should arrive with the rest of our belongings.
I have not had time to do any crocheting or knitting for several days now. You know that is very unlike me. I’m hoping tomorrow to make progress on the second sock. I am on the foot and on the homestretch! Wishing you all a wonderful day.
Blessings and love,
