Daymaker..... :)

So as I was driving home from Cali and it's amazing 75 degree weather,
I was trying my hardest to put on a happy face. You see I was returning home to this-
Yep. That's my kitchen:(
We had a little setback upon discovering rotting floor joists:(
(please tell me you're totally impressed that I knew that word!)
In typical man fashion, the hubby was like hey! how bout we just dig it down
further and create a cellar that will have a trap door entrance under the island?
Um hey! NO!!
Juuust look at that old wall color!! I swear I used to live here once upon a time.... :)

Ok, I really do have a point here. Back to the car ride.... So I was having a pity party that only I was invited to apparently, when we pulled into the drive to find this!!!
Honest to goodness I have the best blog followers EVER!!!
I got an email from a sweet gal who is downsizing and wondering if I would
love something that she has loved for over a decade.
Of course I said yes! And maybe there's a chance that I said hell yes!!

Anyway, I had no idea when this ole gal was going to come spend the rest of her
days with me, so what an amazing welcome home sight she was!
Just standing there on my front sidewalk, begging to come inside and
get out of the heat:) 

I moved her (yes, by myself. cause that's what we crazy ladies do when we need to get stuff done right?) to where someday soon she will stand forever, proudly holding up my sagging ceiling :)

Her sweetness will help create some division in this big room:)
I'm going to hang a window between her and the wall to make it feel
like a little entrance:)

Thank you thank you Lisa from the bottom of my happy (and very sweaty) heart.
You made my day!!! :)
