Finishing Touches

June 14

I finally took pictures of the interior of the house a few weeks ago. While a lot has been accomplished, there is still lots to be done, but the new furniture is in place (until I decide I really must put this over there and that over here) and I have successfully had friends over to dinner, hosted friends for an extended stay, and even thrown a party! So the house is functional and also beautiful. Perfect.

Many thanks to Steve and his wife Kenda for all of their help with the new furniture. Steve also worked to make the old dining room table and chairs new again–rustic and lovely. These two folks go way beyond the call of duty when it comes to the “finishing touches.” Yay!

Most of these pics were taken on June 4.

We have been in a semi-drought this season. The rain has stayed away but later in the day it poured! Finally. I wonder if it has anything to do with the rain dance I performed out on the front porch? No, you did not want to see that, but it might have worked!

Happy Birthday, Tony!

Today is Tony’s birthday. He would have been 74 years young today. I miss him. I will always miss him. But I am glad to be in my new home at last.

  1. Leah, I enjoyed the photos so much. The house is utterly beautiful, inside and out, and obviously already your home. Congratulations!
