The Family, the Fair and the Addition!

Hi All, For some reason I cannot type at the top of the post, so I am typing here. Anyway, lots going on here at the Cape house. They poured the concrete floors last week for the garage and porch!
Looking out the upstairs bath while they were pouring the porch floor...
My family came for the weekend to attend the county fair. We had such a good time!
We went to an old general store in the area called , Moonshine, but the line was long, so we went on. It would have been a neat experience, tho for my family from the city. Most have them have been there before, tho.
My Dad, Mom and Aunt Gerry. Aunt Gerry worked at the Candy Kitchen in the background when she was a teenager. She is in the green sweater.
Another shot...

The fair. My Aunt Gerry is 81. She hung in there there the whole time watching her great grandchildren ride the rides.

The Auction is Done!

Happy Sunday All,
Boy, are Mr. Tennis and I glad it is August 21st! That means the auction is over. The house didnot sell, as no bidders met our reserve price, but it is back with the realtor and I know God has a plan for who is suppose to be the next owners. The sign in the front yard...

The crowd starting to arrive...


The king size bed out on the front porch. Why didn't I think of this??? Looks pretty inviting :)

Wagon full of florals...

Some of my furniture...


The auction crew...
My Dad and his cronies talking it over...


We are dissapointed that the home didnot sell, but thankful for a beautiful day and that the contents are gone. Most all of the contents were bought to run the business, so not too much sentimental value attached. All my sentiment is here at my Cape house :)

Just keeping you all updated on the progress... The concrete guys removing the forms from the foundation...

Of course, Cocoa and Theodore must check out and sniff the progress!



The big machine is throwing rock down on the porch and garage floor, where they will pour the concrete on Monday!




My carpenters hard at it on the shed...

Rooster Party!

Hi All,
Wanted to share my favorite rooster with you and join up over at Shelia's Notes Songs for her Rooster Party! Granny's hooiser cabinet...I don't know my roosters, but either he or she is a beauty! (p.s. I was reminded that a rooster is a boy chick. I guess I knew that) All I really know is that I used to avoid the chicken coop at Granny's as I didn't like to be pecked ont he ankle! lol




A picture I brought home from the Daisy Inn kitchen...


Please go over and check out all the need rooster motifs at Note Songs!

It's Gonna Get Ugly Before It Gets Better...

Hi All,
It's been busy around here...
Remember this scene at my kitchen door, earlier this summer???

Or my flower bed along the drive???

Hmmm, look at it now! Yes, our building on process has begun! Yippee!!! The trellis is down and moved to the back flower bed. Can you say "recycle?"

Gas meter has been moved, as it would have been in the way of the new foundation... The digging will start Monday


Oh yes, and there is a huge whole running through my flower bed, complete with crime scene tape :) Hope the "pretty" will be back some day soon :)

New Floor and Bath...

Hi All,
We are very close to start the new addition to the house. The first phase is to get things done that needed to be done in the original house first. My new floor in the dining room. This used to be carpet. I love this floor!




More new flooring in the downstairs bath and my new vanity and sink...




The matching mirror above the sink...





And my brand spankin' new toilet. :)




Love my new updated bathroom!
