Home Work

Happy May Day! Can you believe it's May already? And it's a busy month for most of us, with Mother's Day, Memorial Day, graduations, weddings, etc. The best part is that it's warmer and it's almost time to plant flowers and vegetables.

It's been a busy couple of weeks at our house. We're having the whole first floor painted next week, so we've been packing up everything and moving it out to the garage. It's a bit like moving, but the boxes just go to the garage instead of on a truck.

On top of that we've been removing carpet and padding from a bedroom, living room, dining room and hall. What a job! But underneath that old carpet we found a treasure - very nice hardwood floors. They will need a cleaning and then a clear sealer, but we're very happy with how they look.

It's been hard work, with more to come after the painters leave (putting everything back in place), but we're doing fairly well and are ahead of schedule. My husband is taking a break this evening to mow grass, and I went to a yoga class this afternoon. So there are other things going on here besides the renovation work, household chores, meals and business work.

I do see that fixing one thing leads to something else - new curtains, throw pillows, maybe slipcovers, and at some point new flooring in the kitchen. Who knows what project will come after all that?

The recipe experiments will have to be put on hold for another couple of weeks or so since I really don't have time to look for recipes or to cook more than the most basic meals. But I'll be back with new, interesting recipes soon! Please check back.

Have a wonderful week! Enjoy the sunshine. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Thanks for reading!
