|In Pickens, South Carolina|
|Scott LOVED the old butcher block in this photo (toward the back and left). It was well worn from YEARS of use.|
|I adore beds like this but again I would not have one as it doesn't look very sturdy.|

Well here it is the middle of January 2017... 2017! Wow when I was 18 it seemed that 2000 was forever in the future and I remember standing in the barn on the farm where I grew up in upstate New York and thinking... "I will be SO OLD in the year 2000... I will be 38". Oh to be 38 again! Time really does get away from us doesn't it? I am now 52 and before too much longer I will be 53. I find myself seeking ways to explore life more; trying to take more of every day in and being thankful for every second. I'm trying to be more outgoing but it is not as easy for me as it is others as I don't trust as easily as they do. But I am trying.
Out with the old and in with the new! We decided to update the stove and the dishwasher in the house in Cayce. I learned an important lesson ... NEVER PAY FOR THE INSTALLATION. Scott had to do it right when he got down there as the person that delivered it was a plug and slide in only on the stove. THANKFULLY I did not pay for the installation on the dishwasher. There is so much more to putting appliances in than hooking them up to power and sliding them in. It took us two full days but we got them in place and level.
And yes it snowed last weekend but it only lasted about 3 days and then was gone... my favorite kind of snow.
|Here is the cart all loaded up!|
|This is one of our favorite places to eat that is not far from where we are staying in the cottage in Greenville, SC.|
|Message from the fridge! |
We all take turns leaving a message on this dry erase board in our kitchen in Cayce.
|Tippy - AKA "Little Man"|
|And Howie - AKA "BIG BOY"|
|Tippy is a snuggle buddy when the other two go off hunting.|
|SHHHH... don't tell but my quilting stash has followed me to the cottage and is hiding under the bed.|
|Flower and a quote bookmark I created.|
