I've been busy...

Hey all!

The first pic is of the finished product...well at least half of it. Last weekend we tore off and replaced all the shingles on the back half of my roof. My hubby is on the ladder and my brother is on top of the roof.
This one is me acting silly. I just tore the last shingle off the back half of the roof!  My hubby did most of the work, but he left the last one for me. My favorite part of remodling is the tearing out part. I like the finished project too, but the installing part just annoys me..ha ha!

This was when my hubby first started pulling shingles off. We did have black shingles, but now we have pretty brown ones.
Eventually, we will have creamy or khaki colored siding, but for now the white is staying. The blue around the windows is going away. It's being replaced with a reddish brown. It looks great with the brown shingles. We are going to redo the front of the house as soon as all this rain goes away. This morning I woke up to sleet, we're even expecting 2 to 4 inches of snow!!! Monday it was 75 degrees, Tuesday 80, then yesterday the rain started and by lunch time it was 38!!!! Last night it got down to the 20s and this morning it's only 33! I love Tennessee, but hate the weather this time of the year! I just hope my tulips and irises make it through. They were popping their leaves up out of the ground. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I will try to get back to blogging again soon. It may stay sporatic for a little while though. Still have a lot to do on the house and for Crimson.

Oh yeah! Before I forget...Crimson and I started reading the Twilight series! We're only into the first chapter, b/c we haven't had a lot of time to read it. So's good!!!

Love you all!

You certainly have been very busy. Roofing is a big job but it will look so nice with the brown roof and the colors you describe. What a darling cottage you have.
Take care, don't work too hard.
Blessings, Celestina Marie

Sounds great!
I can't wait to see the results.

Now don't get hurt climbing on the roof. You are much braver than I would have been. LOL!

The Twilight series is awesome!
