01.31.15 Electrical, outside lumber clean up, return air space and Grannie Madisyn

z4 Friday, January 30, 2015 – Yesterday evening Roy and I enjoyed a major bonfire burning everything we could burn.



I have to share these precious picture with ya’ll.  Our granddaughter Madisyn dressed up as a Grannie for the 100th day of school.  Her outfit reminds me so much of what my mama always wore when she was at home.  It just touched my heart and I’m now looking for a Grannie smock so I’ll be a proper Grannie!

20150130_165351We met with the concrete staining man today to discuss colors and designs.  We followed him to a house he recently completed and were able to tell him what we like and what we’d like to be different in ours.  We’re thinking about having a Fleur de Lis in the floor when you walk in the front door!

Saturday, January 31, 2015 – Last day of January – Wow!  Our electrician wrapped up his work this morning and Gabriel picked up all the excess lumber we don’t need.

20150131_093614The yard is nice and clean ready for the little ones to come tomorrow to play!!!  Yay for children and grandchildren coming to visit!  We’re going to church with Chip’s family tomorrow and he’s taking us all to Cracker Barrell for lunch so it will be a total family day!

Next week’s construction schedule, if all goes well, is shaping up nicely. Plumber, air and heat, next inspection, shingles, vinyl siding and concrete stainer!  Wow!  Don’t know if all that will get done next week, but we’ll see!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
