I'm checking in on this beautiful Thursday with a rocking chair update!
I'm so happy to see some blue skies today after all the snow yesterday. We ended up with right around a foot of the white stuff! I stayed inside all day organizing, relaxing, and drinking gallons of tea. It was pretty nice.
If you recall, Matt and I decided to forego our original decision to buy an upholstered nursery glider in favor of a family heirloom that his Great Aunt passed onto us before she passed away.
A few weeks ago, I hit up a tag sale in my hometown while I was visiting my family. My dad told me a colleague of his was downsizing, and she decided to hold the tag sale to sell a bunch of her things. I knew I wanted to swing by to check it out, but I didn't think I'd buy anything, because I didn't really need anything.
I've been making great strides in the porch rocker department and I'll have some pictures and updates for you early next week!
In the meantime, I did a lil' shopping and a lil' spray painting.
You may remember that the landing at the top of our stairs was pretty bland. I brightened up the heat register here, but besides that, we've done nothing except put in some hardwoods when we moved in. Oh, and we painted, but never did a second coat. Sigh. Someday.
I know the title doesn't rhyme exactly, but humor me.
Here we are, with part two of two in the microwave saga: the install. Did you read the Microwave Story? It was long, I know, but funny. At least, I hope it was a little funny. Wish you could have met CSG, he was a real riot. I realized I didn't include a picture of the microwave we ended up buying at Home Depot.
It might seem like I'm jumping back and forth between the front porch overhaul and the kitchen. Oh, wait. That's because I am jumping back and forth between these two spaces. Bear with me as I tackle whatever project strikes me. If I can get the porch and the kitchen done before the first leaf turns this fall, I'll be a happy homeowner.
