I still need to do the finishing details - curtains, towels and toilet paper, more art...etc. I will post final photos when I am certain I'm finished. It's a commission so I do have a time frame, lol.

One other thing I am considering is leaving the third floor bathroom out and then I'd have a beautiful vaulted ceiling in the bedroom. This is a commission for a young girl so I need to check on that with her mom first. I'm not even sure I can handle not having a bathroom, let alone a young lady, lol. It's hard enough to leave stairs out for me. ;-) I look forward to your opinions. Please share!

We are still working on the garden, too. The big plots of corn, potatoes, melons and various squashes still need to be done. Hopefully, hubby will be able to till up the plots this weekend so we can finish the planting. We've had rain for the past few days which was desperately needed but it has made the soil too wet to work with.
The other thing we've been dealing with is getting our insurance claims all settled after a brief but powerful hail storm last month. The adjuster looked at our house and property last evening so we know what needs to be done and we have a recommendation for a contractor. That work should start soon.
I've also started working my way through the rooms of the house sorting, organizing and cleaning. I'm dreading the sewing room so that's last on my list, lol. When school is in session, I work just under 30 hours/week and I'm still amazed at how hard it is to keep up with everything at home. I feel for those who have to work full time and still have full responsibility for things at home.
Thanks for your patience as I work on my real life chores before I can move on to the mini projects. :-)
