In January, a neighbor asked if we could help him out by taking an old bench off his hands.
It has been sitting next to the garage, but this week it finally got a permanent home.
I can't believe how long it took me to move the bench to the backyard.
The first thing I had to do was find a new home for the enamel topped table.
After 17 years of living in this house, it finally occurred to me to put my grandmother's farm table in the kitchen.
Steve is loving the extra work space.
The patio has a new look
as does the kitchen.
The living room also got a new look - this cabinet came out of the kitchen to make room for the table and as soon as I can settle on a color, it will get a fresh coat of chalk paint.
But, it is difficult to think about painting when it is so gorgeous outside.
I will end with a great big THANK YOU for all the kind comments and well wishes about my hand problem.
My computer is back at home with a brand new screen and the time away from the computer helped a lot.
I see another specialist today and hope to know more about solutions.
