Major Accomplishment

I don't like to cook on an electric stove. The house only had electric. I had the propane people add a gas line, and then I had to wait for the electrician to add a 110 outlet.  Next, have the gas people back up to hook up from the valve to the stove. Just maybe,  I can roast a turkey come the holidays.

One Little Tiny Window

There is only one tiny window in the my bathroom. Not much natural light in the room, I decided to take the solid double doors down and put up one with frosted glass. I was hoping that some light would filter in from the bedroom.

 I will never do that by myself again! Whew....  still need another coat of pain, door molding and hardware. Never mind that wall color; its the camera. The color is actually more akin to baby poop yellow that I am hoping to change soon.

It is way past time to start preparation for fall garden, but I'm too tired to think about it. I still need some kind of equipment in here to dig up all the American Beauty and wild yaupon,( I think that is what it is). It is a mess of a thicket.  Deer season starts soon, and I am not prepared. Yes, I eat deer meat.

Lights with a Texas Star.

I changed my lifestyle from 30 years ago. Once I loved the city--now hate going there. I love living rural. I love the wild of it all, but one thing that has not changed in me, that is my love for my state. So when Home Depot had these lights I just had to have them in my new place.

I put the one on the left   up first. This is in the sitting room right of the Mistress Room , 'cuz tha ain't  no mister. I worried some about people thinking it belongs in a dining room, but not long. It is my room- who cares................ I am enjoying it.  then I tackled the dining room, by the way, I'm still working on the floors.

Then I installed this one of the right in the dining room. This is going to look awesome with my table and the galvanized chairs I am going to rust up a bit to match the metal on the light. I can't wait 'till it all comes together......................but wait..I must not get a head of myself. There are tons of work to do.
