The last few weeks we have enjoyed great visits with family and friends, and expect my Brother and Sister in Law next week. We don't have the great "Epiphany Suite" here, but we do have the EZ bed and it has received pretty good "reviews"!!!
Also consuming a lot of our time!!!! We have been Trying to brush up on our Bridge skills last used in the 60's! Now let me tell you, the game is not at all what we remember. It now has a language all of it's own !!! Hopefully I will figure it out--- soon. Foreign Languages were not my forte in school, and this is really challenging me!
But....we did venture out to IKEA last week. We figured out how to use our large TV in the TV/Guest room, but needed a cabinet for it to sit on. Where else to find one..IKEA of course. We got the perfect piece. This has been MC's first IKEA challenge. We bought two doors for it and MC could not for his life get them to "fit" correctly. So...we used just the one and I balanced out the other side with the shelves full of all my magazines and catalogs.
This past week I have actually been able to SEE Downton Abbey !
Proposed my idea to MC, and he went for it! He painted the inside of the cabinet black,(my idea) and repositioned the cable and electrical stuff! TA DA it was done. It's fabulous...we can see it from the table and our stools perfectly!!!
I made one other change. I asked MC to hand the mirror over the fireplace. It was resting on the mantle and made me nervous! After it was up I thought now I can add some goodies on the mantle to give it more pizazz!
The worst we experienced was a small ice storm the other night. MC took a picture of the huge pine trees that are behind our house. This is the worst we have had and consider ourselves very lucky!!
