REFLECTION AND OUR NEW "ROOM"

MC and I have been here for 15 months!  It's hard to believe.  The days and weeks have just flown by.  We are so glad we made this move.  We have found our HOME.

We are in a community that will have a total of 130 residences.  Perfect size!  It's tucked away in a treed, small area of Grayson, Georgia and is a gem!  I would describe the community like a very small town!  Lots of beautifully landscaped common areas and homes.  It doesn't resemble your typical subdivision.  We have a small club house that  residents use for meetings, cards, exercising, parties,etc....and it has a lovely pool.

Within a 5 mile radius there is  every shop/store  you can think of.  Sprouts opened a lovely store last summer and Fresh Market is coming early next winter.  AND we have three (3) Paneras and can walk to Kroger's.  Restaurants are everywhere.....All in all it's perfect.

We have all  new doctors and we don't have to drive to Atlanta.  No more  I-75 traffic hang-ups!

 MC has been selected to serve on the  Gwinnett County Board of Equalization.  It's right up his ally!  They hear homeowners appeals regarding their tax assessments.  He works one or two days a week and actually gets PAID!!!  He is also Chairman of our community's Architectural Control Committee, whose initial task was developing guide lines for the outside additions homeowners wish to do.  He's perfect on this committee.  With all his experience with Sun City's Architectural Committee he was able to contribute a great deal.  All this, and he has gone along with all my crazy design ideas.  Oh, his favorite place to go ....a very large Library..... just down the street!

I spend my time on our Communications Committee and write articles for our newsletter.  I'm also in the process of starting a book club.  I "put it out there" to see if there was any interest and so far it's  favorable.  I think we'll wait for the Fall to get it off the ground.  AND OF COURSE, I am ALWAYS MOVING THE FURNITURE!!!  The new table, that I won, has been moved and has been restyled three times!  As with all my pieces, it looks great everywhere!



All in all, we are at home here.  We have made so many new friends!!!  Don't get me wrong we do miss our Sun City friends, but love our new community.

Our Terrace has been screened!

Our contractor was:

nogafcr@gmail.com
Josiah Robey
Strong Construction
859-509-7742

He did a fantastic job and we recommend him highly.  















  Today the chandelier that was back ordered arrived.  MC got it up in an hour, with only one phone call to the manufacturer for "technical assistance"!  We plan on having some lovely evenings with family and friends in our "dining" room.  It's very private.   Not in view of neighbors or the street.  Shrubs and its position on the side of the  house makes it so.




MC reminded me I left out the BEST attribute!   Our real estate taxes are 1/3 of what they were in Sun City!!!  Gwinnett County exempts their seniors 100% from school taxes!

GOOD THINGS WORTH WAITING FOR!

My gorgeous, beautiful, classic, gold metal  and glass table arrived yesterday afternoon.  So, so worth the wait!  It's made by Uttermost, one of the best home accessory companies.  We LOVE it and we think it's perfect in our room!
Thank you SO much Kristy and Beth for  the contest.  It was fun, but the best part....I WON!  Life can't much better than that!

I took  photo's of it's arrival and MC's assembly.  It's a good thing he has his degree from IKEA!

THE DELIVERY  5:21!






 MC had the truck driver put the carton in the garage and he went to work immediately.

MAKING ROOM

TODAY I MADE ROOM FOR THE FABULOUS NEW TABLE!!!

 I figured out where to move tables to make room for the  new table 
I Won!!!

WAITING






 The new table will look perfect in this space!!!


We will have a little wait!  The table is back ordered, which is OK.  It's surely worth waiting for!  It should arrive mid June.


PLAN A
SUBJECT TO CHANGE

Continuing the domino of the table moving ........

The table that was there moved to the

 Master Bedroom


This is the table I received from my neighbor in Sun City.  It  looks even better here than it did in the Great Room.

There was a table in this space that moved to:

TV/Guest Room

 
I love this table in this room.  With just a little tweaking this room becomes a guest bedroom!  The TV is in the closet!!! 


NOW
WE WAIT!!!
