Its O-V-E-R..over !!!

It has been Beautiful weather here in the North East...not
quite hot summer weather but sunny and breezy during
the day, with wonderful cool nights, great for sleeping.
Actually perfect for me...not sure how long it will last,
but I'm very grateful for what we have had this past week.
Its over ... Its over .... its O-V-E-R over !!!
It taken a little over a month
(due to the previous rainy weather we had )
and 28 gallons of stain....but we are finally finished
with the cabin. YIPPEE !!!
We did the very last board on Saturday....and celebrated
by the pool for the rest of the week-end.
I love the way the house looks very uniform in
color and coverage...that was something we were
both looking for. We have fingers crossed that it lasts a
good ten years, and that next time
around we can hire it out. lol
I have only the trim color to pick out for the front, back, and
pass door by the garage...I have a color in my head,
its like an old blue green....very old and weathered looking
(Anita like the color we saw on the trim at
Jan Hoffman's a few years ago)
any suggestions would be appreciated ~~ lol .
Of course I don't think I will find that
color in a can....but will go on the hunt soon.
Now I have some weeding and transplanting to do,
it should have been done way before this .... but I waited
till the house was done so as not to trample on any of the
new flowers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hope everyone is Healthy, Happy & Enjoying
some Summer Time Fun.
Sending Good Thoughts & Sunny Hugs from the Cabin

Connie, Congratulations on finishing it up! Can you get the smell of stain out of your head/nose? I'm sure I can always smell it weeks later! Enjoy the completed project. ~Ann

Hi Neenee, Thank You for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. Are you familiar with Judy Condon's Books ?? The Cabin is pictured in "A Simpler Time" and "Decorating for All Seasons", also if you go back to earlier posts on here you will see some photos. Hugs ~ Connie xox

Hi Connie,
Thanks for your comment. Our friend seems to be doing okay, although I'm sure it will become more of a reality to her as the days pass. Good that she has the boys nearby now.
Glad your weather has improved also. What an awful summer this has been, especially for folks like me who like to be outdoors.
Your house looks terrific. Hope I get to see it in person one of these days.
Take care and enjoy the sunshine! :)
Joanne
