The End is Near!!

Things have been moving along quickly! The flooring is all in and it looks beautiful! It is solid 3/4 inch oak in a natural finish. It is so pretty with the knotty maple kitchen cabinets. We got the slab of granite on the island as a remnant piece from a granite dealer in Cashmere. Mike and Jessie have been busy getting everything installed (sinks, appliances, mirrors, smoke alarms, etc.).

This will prove to be a busy week. Doors to hang, baseboard put up, windows trimmed, hardware installed, and so goes the list.

On another note... Jessie's foundation is in at Cashmere. Building will start on that as soon as Mom and Roy's house is done.

And we have broke ground for our next house. It will be a busy fall!! How exciting!!

A Family Get Together

My sister and her husband, who live in Oklahoma, flew into Seattle for a visit last week. I drove my Mom and Dad over to Bellvue to visit. My sis has been in a battle with cancer for the last couple of years, so her being able to come was very special to us all. We got the good news a few days before her coming that she was cancer free!!! How wonderful!! We had a nice visit..went to eat on the waterfront at Lake Union...went to Pikes Market....and had my 15 year old nephew drive us around and in downtown Seattle (he did great). My niece and I experienced green tea w/bubbles (YUCK). It was a short visit...but so great to see them.

Color on the Walls & a New Back Deck

I am a bit behind in my postings...things have been busy! We have the inside of the house all painted.

The kitchen is sagey green.

The living room is a warm beige.
The guest bathroom is blue.
Minty green graces the walls of the master suit.
The laminate flooring that was in the living room and dining room was Jessie is laying it in one of the bedrooms. He put it in both of the smaller bedrooms and the laundry room
The deck out back turned out beautiful!!
