Good Monday morning friends! How was your weekend? Mine was fabulous. I made mention last week that we are staying put in this house for the foreseeable future, and while it makes me sad that I will not be closer to my brother, I am grateful to have a home and a house that I love.
That said, we are in the process of having a fence installed, and are finishing the deck project that my husband wanted for the lasted few years. When I say “we” I mean that the contractors are installing the fence and finishing the deck, both of which have been delayed because of Covid-19. All in preparation of our new family member(more on that later). In case you are unaware because of Covid-19 there is a shortage of lumber, fencing, fire pits, and so many more construction supplies because people are building and doing DIY projects including decks, tree houses and more.
This weekend I spent time cleaning closets, pulling out fall/winter bedding, airing out my tartan blankets and enjoying the cooling temperatures. In a few weeks I will be sitting in front of my first fire of the season.
I have been redecorating the house; changing rooms around, having pieces reupholstered, new pillows made because unfortunately I cannot sew, adding new lamps, and subtracting a few things as well.
And I’ve been attending auctions online which is always fun even if I am not looking for anything. I love learning about things and the history of items. There are so many beautiful pieces of art, and furniture available at auction, if you are looking for something or are just interested in looking check out Invaluable which features auctions from all over the world. If you are interested in finding great deals at online auctions check out this post by Elizabeth Cook on Katie Consider’s blog, there are so many great tips.
This weekend I baked a few loaves of banana bread. If you have never made Cooks Illustrated “Ultimate Banana Bread” I cannot recommend it highly enough, it really is the best banana bread I have ever made.
I have a very busy week ahead and I am excited at the possibilities and adventured ahead. I hope that you have a wonderful week and I thank you for visiting today.
Have a great day!
