We've lived in our house now for over seven years. We moved in for six months as a temporary measure, then life got busy, and we stayed. Grandpa, dad, and sons got busy this past week and made some home improvements. It was thrifty, because they did the work themselves!
The wind had hit our glass door pretty hard and busted the hinges.
My husband and I like old-fashioned wooden screen doors, so he and my elder son installed one for us on the front porch. Notice he painted the trim, too. The front of the house needs painting, too, but he ran out of time.
The view from inside.
Grandpa and grandson installed a new ceiling fan in the dining room. Michael is standing on the floor. Just saying... I bought beans from Jack's mother. I thought they were pintos. I made burritos. Michael likes burritos.
Need I say more?
We have only window air conditioning, so this new ceiling fan is a great help in keeping us cool. It is a high end model that makes a terrific breeze. It was a gift from grandpa. Thank you!
New lamps for my bedroom.
Simple but functional.
The back hallway has been dark since we moved in.
There was no light switch for the light, so they put in
a pull chain light. No troubles. It's amazing to be able see back there!
Isn't it funny how work piles up and waits for us, then suddenly we get a lot done all at once?
Where were the girls?
We were at my daughter Emily's Mary Kay Debut.
I had my chemo treatment on Monday, and didn't do much that was productive this week. I should be back next week with a Thrifty Week at Harvest Lane Cottage.
