Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Some house pictures

Ok, as promised, here are some pictures of our patio and projector screen projects, along with some other pictures of the house. More to come!

Jed's dad raking gravel into the patio area... note the ugly green chain-link fence...

TA-DA! Patio with fire-pit table and table Jed made (yes, made... in one day and surprised me with when I came home from work last Friday!) The table is actually two square tables with a square leaf in the middle = options! Ah yes, and no more ugly green chain-link fence! It's still there, we just hid it. And strung adorable little paper-lantern-like lights along the top.

Now entering THE MAN CAVE. Actually, I'll probably get more use out of it watching Patriots football on Sundays starting soon! This is the full length of the room with the poker table. Where I am standing, there will soon be a bar.

The big screen... roughly 8'5"x8'5"... with Bose surround sound. I know you're not jealous.

Our cute little country dining room. The dining set is from IKEA and the table seats 12 with both leaves in, if you can believe it! Can someone say Thanksgiving???

And here is the living room. There is a wood stove in the corner to the left (between couch and black chair). The Red Sox blanket signifies Morris' seat.

Pictures of my absolute favorite room are yet to come! Stay tuned!

Ah, I don't have any true "before" pictures. That square used to be filled with mud, weeds and a few stepping stones. The fence was overtaken by the bushes on the other side. Awful! But, thanks Nicole Marie!
