This is the room we call the library, you can kinda see one bookshelf here, there is another on the right of the tree and then the wall directly to my right where I am standing to take the picture is a wall of shelves. To the left of the tree is our new 140 year old piano and to the left of that is the fireplace. Kinda a hard room to place furniture in, we are hoping to take out the wall to my direct left and open the room up to the dining room. (dining room pic, this would be the wall with the glass door) So anyways, this is my mess and I should really get off my tush and get started. Have a good day.

Yesterday was our last Christmas Party. While part of me says "Thank goodness" another part of me is going to miss it. I really enjoy seeing everyone. I might not get to have a full conversation, but I can listen in here and there to what everyone is up to and it's nice to hear everyone for the most part is doing well. On to the clean up, this is the part I don't really care for, it's depressing packing everything away. I woke up this morning with the intention of coming downstairs and getting started. Then I looked at the mound of things that I swear I have put away a few times already and I simply got overwhelmed with where to begin. It doesn't help that all of our living room furniture is in the dining room and library. (We call it a library because it has floor to ceiling built in bookshelves, sounds snobby huh!) So, where to start? With my blog of course. Yup, I moved some plastic over on the couch and plopped my tush down and started typing. Annie just came and told me she wants to eat, hmmm what can I send her to get on her own? Ok, Ok, I will get up and get motivated, the coffee is done anyhow so I should get going. Ugh. I hope everyone is recovering well. I have some blog catch up's to do. Is it Friday yet? The room we are painting, it was a very light khaki, and now it is the Pottery Barn Barley color. It's still the first coat, the walls are really soaking it up, so it will be interesting to see what the second coat does. I am going to try and recruit some college helpers today...(you guys awake yet?) Don't look too close, you'll notice the slanted floors, the gap between the floor and molding, we spent yesterday caulking the cracks and seams, hopefully it will help with the drafts. The next picture is the dining room, think we can find a teeny tiny spot to sit and eat with all the junk on the table? That has been where everything gets dumped and reloaded from party to party...time to clear out! Notice my computer on the couch, yup, I am a dedicated blogger now!
