This picture is the view from the road as you turn into our driveway. We really haven't done much to the outside yet. I did trim all the shrubs in the flower beds, but we didn't add anything. I am sure that next Spring the front of the house will get lots of attention.
I tried to get a picture of the cardinals playing on the deck around the bird feeder this morning. My camera doesn't have a good zoom and the birds wouldn't play if I was too close. Anyway, they are fun to watch. Our good friends Marshall and Sissie gave us the bird feeder for a housewarming gift. We are definitely enjoying it.
We are slowly making progress on the front living room/office. The walls are primed and we are about to begin painting. John has gotten the shelves for either side of the fireplace sanded and stained. We plan to get one coat of paint on tonight with the second coat tomorrow night. Hopefully on Friday we can get all the crown moulding back up and be done for now. We are still debating on the floor. We had planned to go with carpet, but we are thinking ceramic tile might be a better choice.
