It's Room Reveal Day for My Readers!

Youngest daughter will have to wait until she returns from camp.  I hope she likes it!


I've decided it is definitely not fair that photos add 10 pounds when people are the subjects, yet subtract space when rooms are the subjects.  In real life, the bedroom doesn't look so crowded.  Really.

You probably wouldn't guess that one of my favorite elements in this room is the curtains.  Let me show you what (besides the window) they cover:


Call me a traditionalist, but I am from the camp that believes that sprinkler timing devices should be installed in the garage, not in a bedroom.  Since we've moved in, I've been trying to figure out how to cover these up.  I guess I'm a slow thinker, but eventually I got it:  extend the curtains past the window!

No more sprinkler timers:

I can't wait to see what youngest daughter thinks!

  1. It looks so great, she'd be crazy not to love it!

  2. I hope that you can arrange for someone to be waiting inside her room to get her surprised look when she sees what you have done! Maybe that person can get one of you beaming and enjoying the moment too :-)

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
