I wanted to echo Ann's apology for our "blog slacking." We are back on tack and will do much better. So here is a quick update and a couple of pictures.
The outside building that we had planned on taking down (Ann is such a good wife to make it sound like I masterminded this) is coming along and is going to be pretty cool. We made a little progress yesterday (it was 90 degrees so I didn't spend too much time on it) and I like it more and more all the time. The first picture is of the outside end. There used to be a bunch of bushes and a tree at the end but those are all gone and we opened up a large "window" along the entire wall. It will be covered by screens before long. The second picture is a view from the inside looking out. This will be your view when you come to visit and are eating dinner out there.
This is coming along really well. We have a nice ceiling fan that a friend took out of a renovation he is working on and it will help make it an even more comfortable space.
Yesterday we went into New Albany and picked up a couple of dressers and a chair from our friends at Indiana Landmarks. They have been so great and always seem to have a special "something" that we can use. We got the dressers and the chair and have some thoughts about a couple of doors they have and some other things. Everything is salvaged and is perfect for reuse. It's a great place to "shop." The weather was beautiful and I took a couple of pictures. The first one is Louisville's skyline and the second is the Ohio river from the Indiana side across from Louisville.
We really love it here. Well, it's back to work on the kitchen and the shed. One (or both) of us will write again soon.
Thank you for reading our blog and for all of your comments, thoughts and suggestions. We can't tell you how much we appreciate it.
