I found the texture on the back of the bookshelves quite intriguing so I thought I'd share them with you.

latest improvements

This past week Ray worked on new electrical wiring for the kitchen.With lathe and plaster walls it was a time consuming and messy job. He also corrected wiring to the ceiling and pendant lights. Then the tools were removed and I cleaned and did some decorating. For the 1st time in 3 weeks I felt at home.Then a few days later he decided to tackle the back door in the kitchen. So my clean room was short lived. Two days and a couple of trips to the hardware store later. We now have a door that keeps out a cold north wind. I spent time working on 2nd floor closets. Trying to make the best use of what we have. We took a brief break and visited our kids in Kansas city. Tomorrow it's back to work on the bookcase project that caused a bit of frustration. I hope to get them finished soon. Ray will be working in his studio on free lance work and getting his studio in working order.

New Lights and More

This week's progress included new lights in the studio, more plastic on the windows, swapping the living room and the dining room and moving the TV antenna outdoors.

Marilyn spent hours scraping multiple layers of wallpaper off the back of the fireplace bookshelves. Haven't decided what to do next. I kind of like the rustic texture it's created, don't you?

The computer corner is starting to take shape. Still need more wall receptacles and more insulation.
