"Far from idleness being the root of all evil, it is rather the only true good." ~ Soren Kierkegaard



Yes, our headboard is still in the living-room!
We picked up these place-mats at the Oysterfest on Cape Cod a few years ago.
Narrow tiles over the sink.
This soap-dish is another Oysterfest find.



Phew! Yesterday I got to put my feet up for a bit. Bruce had the car for golf, and I was forced to stay put. It was a much needed break from all of the running around that we have done.

You can see by the photos that, with the exception of outlets and under-counter lighting, our backsplash is complete. I love it! Bruce found these tiles, and I must say that they are just beautiful!

We made a trip to IKEA to purchase shelving, and Bruce and a friend assembled them - it's so nice to be able to put things up off the floor, even if it's only in a temporary location. Yesterday felt for the first time like we were living in a home rather than a disaster area.

Today the bedroom closet is being assembled by Bruce and our same friend - thank you Rick! I told him that I would cook him anything that he wanted in exchange for his help. He mentioned something about new golf clubs, to which I responded "As soon as I can find the knitting pattern for them, I'll get started!"

So, a little peace, and peace-of-mind has begun to settle around us. We may even make it the three miles to the beach this week!
