Head Cover II

My hair is growing back nicely since
it fell out. I'll be glad when I can style
it again. :o)

Mi Casa

This is the view looking out from all of our
windows in the back of the house.
I love having the country "feel"
while living right in town. Occasionally,
there are cows in that field, and Jasper
loves to bark at them! LOL, they just
stare impassively back at him.

I found this adorable table at a local antique
store. I have it placed next to the front, entrance
by Susan Lordi and the one in this photo entitled "Mi Casa" was
given to me as a housewarming gift.
The three, small urns were given to me as a housewarming
gift as well. I am blessed with generous friends. The mantle
clock that I have on top of my wine cabinet was also given
to me when I moved in.
I am so very blessed to have such good friends and
family. I am so thankful for them!

I've been having some fun in Corel Photobook with
a few recent photographs of Tessia

I am making a 2ft. x 3ft. poster of the first one.

Tessia recently had her hair caramelized
at the salon.....I almost did not recognize
her when she came walking out!!

I love this photo of her, taken recently, but
before the salon trip!

The Best Baby Brother!!!

I must brag on my younger brother!! He has helped me with some
projects around my house....and I am so thankful!!
He helped install my window shutters and my house numbers.... and also
helped install some closet doors inside the house.
My brother ROCKS!! :0)

In this picture, he is leaning my new, black door
up against the old door, so I can see how it will
look. The carpenter is coming tomorrow to
install it.

Here, he is putting the finishing touches on
my house numbers.
This is me....and my younger brother around
1973!! I was such a "Marcia Brady" wannabe!! LOL

Movin, movin, movin....we are MOVED!

What an adventure!
It all begin in April of 2006, when I first
began looking for a home to purchase....and now, we are
finally moved in to our house!

Here are the movers at the apartment.
That is Tessia and Jasper coming out to meet me.

And here are the movers at my house.
If you squint your eyes, you can see me
standing in the big window in the front.

Here is a before & after of my house after
my brother and I installed the window
shutters. What a difference!
Next, I'll be getting a black entrance door.
Stay tuned for more photos.
