 Cainan decided that this year he would like to go to the Homecoming Dance.  It was outdoors and they had to wear masks, but I am glad they had the dance.  The weather was unseasonably warm which was great.  He went with a wonderful group of friends.  Finley elected to go bowling with friends instead

Rocking Chairs Get New Life

 We are in project mode around here.  I have recently restained our side front porch after months of contractor wear and tear and brought it back to life with a nice deep red color that matches our doors.  And then I painted two old Cracker Barrel Rockers that we had.  They had a hard life especially while we were living abroad, but thank you to Chalked Paint and outdoor poly, we brought them back to life for next season.  I love how they turned out.

 Our most recent project is complete.  We had the contractors build us a nook on the outside of the pantry where we wanted to put a large bookcase.  Mat cut all the pieces, I stained them and then he and I assembled them this past week.  It is beautiful.  I already have 400 books on the shelves and room for more.  It is such a statement piece right when you come into the house
