Prelude to a KissSunroom

It was probably about a year & a half ago when my constant harping gentle reminders to Popster about how I would love a sun room finally made an impact & we had a contractor come over to give us an estimate.  It took Popster about 4 months to recover from sticker shock & needless to say the project got put on the back burner!

Fast forward a few months & the nagging gentle reminders started & it was decided the bathroom needed to be done first....not my we have a beautiful bathroom!

I'm sure you all remember the sunroof affair with my car, at which point Popster wanted to buy me a new car.  Being the stubborn reasonable person that I am, I held out for the sun room instead!

Fast forward a few more months &, I'm sure you can all guess, I ever so nicely brought up the subject again........if nothing else I'm persistent!

Now the argument disagreement gets even more interesting as Popster decides we should do the kitchen first.  Okay I'll keep jumping thru the hoops if that's what it will take.  We found a local contractor who came over to look at what we wanted to do.  We had the following conversation:

Jim:  "Why is your sink here facing a blank wall instead of over there under the window?"

Me:  "I thought it would be too hard to move it!  Can you do that?"

Jim:  "I can do anything you want!"

Me:  "Who are you & where have you been all my life????"

At that point Popster starting hyper-ventilating as he knew he was in trouble, especially when I asked Jim to move in!

It, of course, is turning into a much bigger job that we thought as he plans to gut the entire room, walls & ceiling etc!  We were originally on his waiting list to have this started the middle of Feb but we have been moved up & he will be here the end of next week. Yikes!  Good thing I didn't take a long time to get a design drawn up & ordered cabinets early enough.

I will do some before & after pics but meanwhile I have to get my butt in gear & start emptying all my cabinets.....Popster will be eating some strange meals for the next week!  Also I am putting a lot of things on Craig's List which will be another whole other post on that experience!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
