Fill It Up!

Due to a death in my sister-in-law's family, she and my brother can't stay for a visit all week as planned.  So, we filled this day up with activities together before they fly out at dawn tomorrow(Tues morn). 

When they came to pick me up, they wanted a tour with the workermen-my brother,

drew around Bill so they could custom cut out the sheetrock!  [Bill had to stay home and help with the project :'(    ]

On the way, we saw many orchards like this-cracking and groaning due to the cold temperatures.

We visited the Harley Complex-my brother's fav place to shop.  Had an icecream, even tho the temp was still too cold out for FL visitors and then to Daytona for lunch and-

a visit to the beach-

just a glimpse really because it was too cold to linger!

We found walls when we got home!  Family room.......


master bedroom....

master bath and closet........


old window opening/ now a display nook.......

The cats love running through the new rooms after the men left-they are too noisy for the cats!

It is still cold this afternoon, even though the thermometer read 52, there is still ice in any standing water!
We ended our time together with a great dinner at our parents', enjoyed a few games of Spinners (a domino game), lot's of laughter and great conversation.


  1. WOW on the house! It's so exciting to see real rooms...the lovely morning sunlight in the guest room is calling my name...!

    Sorry UB & AS had to leave early, but I'm glad you packed good times in while they were there.

  2. It's looking great! Got your paint colors picked out?

    Speaking of standing water, our pool is covered with ice.

  3. Ahhh... Don't those walls look lovely!! Congrats!!

  4. Wow! You crammed a lot in one day.

    Condolences to SIL and her family.

  5. Sorry about the death in your SIL's family.

    Huge progress on the house!!! Awesome! The sheetrock phase is so satisfying (well, as long as you're not doing the work yourself!)

    I can't believe there's so much cold weather in the east. Ice in Florida....just not right!


  6. Sorry to hear of your SIL's family member passing.

    You house is looking fantastic, just imagine how happy you'll be once it's over.

    I'm glad you were able to enjoy your family sounds like you had a great time.

I said my goodbyes yesterday;  it seems I anticipate the visit for so long and then it goes by in the blink of an eye!   We sure did pile a ...
