Oh, I am sorry, it has been a while, hasn’t it. I just haven’t been in the right head space lately to do anything routine and regular. Well, working, that is about it. I do think about blogging and there sure has been a lot going on, but still, just run out of hours at the end of the day!
As you may have seen on the Facebook page, we’ve had a busy end of summer and fall doing some construction and deconstruction projects! Mostly, getting my tiny house ready for winter so that I could move in. I did and I absolutely love and adore the space!!! Can’t wait to get to spring and start working more on the outside!!! I have so many plans, imagine that!
It’s all so beautiful in the cottage now, All drywalled and painted and filled up with my stuff and all the whimsy that I adore. Probably a little bit more than I need but that will level out as the months go on. I just find the place to be so restful and helping me to recover from the hard year that 2020 was! It had good points, but mostly it was a year of loss and struggle. But, well, we were not the only ones by far, so it’s time to move on and get some springtime here to brighten our lives again!
Jessy started demo in her room… rooms? She has had one of the smallest bedrooms in the house, aside from my old room, and the odd thing is that there was another room right next to it, that just begged to be made into a suite. We checked and the wall between was not a load bearing wall, but we still put a heavy duty header in there to be safe. Now she has one bigger room that is slightly segmented, but it will be wonderful.
Unfortunately, as we got working, it was almost the holiday rush season and well, it’s still a little rough. However, she is in the final stages… primer and paint! And then some flooring choices and she will be able to start moving in! She will need some window trim and such, but so does the rest of the house and Maggie wants to learn how to make trim on her router in the woodshop so we are going to do all the trim at the same time! Crazy, I know, but it does make sense. The cottage needs it, as well as the kitchen, studio, bathroom and now Jessy’s room! Thats a lot of trim to make for sure.
I will try and get caught up. I have several little folders of photos and stories to share. I do miss this sort of longer journaling, rather than the shortie bits on Facebook and Instagram. It’s just that sometimes things just get in the way. You know, life.
I hope all are good and I know that there are probably not that many readers anymore. But I promise to give it a good shot and if anything, it’s a great way to document our crazy life for us! Sort of like blog scrapbooking…
