Quilt With Us

Good morning ladies-

I always look forward to a new year...mainly because we will be leaving for two and half months to Fl. It is a time for reflection and planning. Last year was good... but we lost dear friends and family members. We all know how difficult that is. Hoping this year will just be quiet and without so much drama in our lives as well as the world. 

We are spending New Years stripping out three rooms of our house. Have contractors in while we are gone to upgrade everything. Been busy picking out fixtures, paint, wallpaper, etc. My girlfriend's two daughters are loving it. They are getting everything!!!! It will be nice to just have the outlets at the heights behind desks that you don't see the cords(hate that)! 

So, wishing everyone a safe and fun New Years Eve! I will be in my pjs having a bourbon and kissing my hubby!

Those upgrades will be so nice!  Everything will seem fresh and new.  We have some projects that  need done as well, but not sure when we'll get started on them.  I agree with Barbara - great plan to be elsewhere when the mess is going on.  

Safe travels and soak up some rays for me while you're in sunny, warm Florida!

Happy 2018 to you & your family.  Have a safe trip to FL.  We stayed home last night because I don't like going out on NY's Eve.  The temps were down to zero so it felt good to just stay indoors & read while hubby watched tv.

Same to you Sharon. My bones want to be warm and I love a nice tan!

Happy New Year to You and Hubby!!! Renovations sure are a mess and you are smart to have them done while you are gone. We're leaving for AZ about the middle of Jan and will be gone until mid April. Can't hardly wait for the nice warm weather. We're not as cold as back East, but it's cold for WA and near Seattle, because of the water so near. Have a fun trip and safe drive both ways.

Exciting way to start out the New Year!  The update, that is, not kissing your hubby or the bourbon, lol!  With all the frigid weather, Florida is sounding like heaven.  Happy 2018!

There is nothing like a renovation! Once it's done, it's wonderful. In process, maybe not as much. I think your plan to vacate the house is the smartest way to do it. Happy New Year!

Your renovations sounds wonderful. It will be exciting to come home to. I have no plans for tonight. If I stay awake long enough I "might" watch the ball drop in NYC.  I'm wishing you a save trip to Fla. and a lovely warm Winter.  Make sure you check in with us here on QWU. while your down there.
