Now Eagle Lake feels like home. The cat is adjusting (she only has the run of my bedroom, the master bath and the hall until all painting is done.) The dining room will be finished today; it just glows in coral, "enticing red" and "begonia." Until my cable is in I won't be posting photos, but I'll do a gallery soon. The kitchen and breakfast room are done, in ochre and enticing red. Studio is full of boxes, but painting is done. On to the living room tomorrow. I brought plants down last night. So next challenge is BOOKSHELVES in 3 rooms. Electric screwdrivers are very useful here.
Best of all, every day I put up some art work, which pulls all the dramatic colors together. The painters don't think me quite so odd any more as they see it evolve. I have met a lot of kind and friendly people here. Oh, and while clearing out the Huntsville garage I rediscovered two antique church mirrors and two small stained glass windows that we had rescued from buildings being demolished in Minneapolis years ago--I didn't know where they were for 20 years. They'll look great in Phil and Kristi's 1910 house. So, hidden treasure found--an unexpected bonus.
