I am back home.

Back home after a wonderful 5 days with my family.  The weather was great, lovely sunny warm days and wow did the family spoil me.  It all went so quickly. I don't think it went so quick for Nev but he is a great cook so he didn't starve and the house was very tidy when I got home.  LOL  he did say he had been over the kitchen floor with the paper towel roll.  and he polished the stove with the stainless steel cleaner... wow I don't do that.   He forgot we had a laundry with a washing machine. LOL.   We did miss each other.  Awwwwwwwwwwww.
They did a lot to the new house which was great to see when I got home. The roof is finished and the shutters and columns installed on the front of the house (Still to be painted).  Tomorrow the internal walls will be start. 


Here is the update on the house.  

I have a commission to get started on tomorrow.  Bailey is a  gorgeous dog.

The house is looking very nice...I like those big windows out front, and with the dappled lighting I bet those rooms would be perfect to art in!

Deb, Jan, Sue, Joan. Thank you and it is nice to be home. I did have a wonderful time and two birthdays in one week. Sandra made me a lovely cake and the boys gave me a book and chocolates Sandra money to spend at the art shop. Glenn gave me a lovely book also "Mentoring and Reconstruction Task Force 2 " It was all about regiment Glenn was in during the time he was in Afghanistan.

Thank you for your comments on the new house. Yes we are counting the days. but will still be about 8 weeks yet.

Hugs
Dors.

Welcome back Dors - it's always a joy to catch up with family from afar, but home is lovely too when you get back to it. Can't wait to check out the progress of your commission :))

Dors said...

Thank you Karen. I must get this commission started. I am just waiting to hear from my client as to whether she wants head and shoulder or a whole dog drawing.
