Decisions, choices, (or the ramblings of my morning brain.)- March 3, 2008



Kitchen Ceiling after first rain- it’s worse now!

I have been debating the move from iWeb to Wordpress. I really like how easy iWeb is to use and all that jazz, but don’t want to pay for it! :) I love my friends’ sites on Wordpress and might try a little one just to see how it goes. I think I have to pay for this one today!


Someone is walking on my roof.

This one actually warned me which was nice. For those of you who haven’t heard- we had some damage from the wind storms about three weeks ago. The flat roof on our kitchen dining area and part of our living room blew off. Then, water gushed in the kitchen

(I MEAN GUSHED!)

It was like the chandelier was a shower head and the air vents, and the door frame...

Lovely mess to say the least. I’ve been fighting to get estimates on everything, and have an insurance check waiting to go if I can ever find someone willing to work on it. Just waiting on the man on the roof nows estimate and then will get going on it this week hopefully. The only good thing I can say about it is that now I can redo the ceiling and lights in the living room, and I am going to go ahead and put in new lights and remove the ugly beams if we can. We have pecky cypress 1/2” thick panelling in there on all walls. We don’t really like it because it’s so rustic and dark, but it is nice wood. Scott wants to remove it and drywall the entire room and add a stone fireplace, but should we? I think I could sell the wood or at the least freecycle it.


This brings me back to my original thought.

That is one of Choice. On jury duty last week one young man brought up a good point about life. He said

“It all comes down to the choices we make. It might not seem like a big one at the time, but it can change your life.” It is true.

Or it was in that case. But not really in the case of wood paneling, drywall, or where to blog.

I have so much to be grateful for that my heart is bursting this morning.
