Done....enough...

This has been a HUGE...undertaking... I have also been working on the Balcony...and Liz's old room... oh dear...
 So Many...Miles to Go!
After pulling everything off the wall...I put Everything Back... The Old German Cupboard...was going to Nashville... and has been waiting in John's Shop.... {Right}.... I felt so sorry for it...I had the Guys...Plunk it in the door...several weeks ago....Now...that I have Found a Spot for it....it may... just have to stay.... : )
We pulled up the Rug...and Polished the Floors....We decided...No More Rugs!!! {Too Many Critters!!!}
It doesn't look much different...when looking at these images...but...it's CLEANER! 
Oh...my.... I even climbed up....HIGH... on the ladder...to clean the Gas Light!....and Ceiling Medallion!.... oh my...
 I Don't Like Heights! John....worked on it...as well.... Holy Smokes....
It is...what it is.... Peg isn't coming until tomorrow...so had an extra day...to keep...cleaning.... {Liz thinks I must be on Drugs! I keep Cleaning...and Cleaning...} Trust me...I'm running on Nothing...
I am...happy...that this much of the house...is cleaner... but...have...sooooo many Miles to go!
{I only have two rooms done...oh dear...}
But....I have to get to The Rabbit Hole... and get it Ready!
Holiday Open House...
This Weekend!!!
Oh My!

Barbara, I know this is way forward of me, but someday when you think of it, could I please see the inside of your house. Based on these pictures I believe you live in a museum and I'm tearing up from the beauty. Cindy Nutt

Awww...Cindy...You bring Tears...to my Eyes...this morning...
I am...so sorry...I have never had you in...the house...
{dang it...tears....}
I am ashamed...of how dirty it always is....
I get So Mad...at myself.. because...I don't have the energy...to keep up...with everything...
I work so hard...at just...keeping the Boat afloat...That I don't have time...or...energy...to Scrub the Decks...{and...it deserves...much...better...from me...as do my Guests...}
I have been trying to work harder...and get things... picked up...more.... but...it's a Battle...to say the least...
I am hoping....to have an Open House...here at the House... after The Tree is up... {That's my Favorite time... of year... }
If I can get it together...You...are Invited...
However...I think you'll be disappointed...
This...is Not...a Museum... by any stretch...
It's....just 'Things'... I have gathered...over the years...that mean...much....to me...
Most have a little damage...or..a lot... {kind of like me...} But...everything...has a Memory...and...Soul...
Thanks...for the kind...words...
and...Thanks...for All You Do...
Love Ya..
