If you’re a regular follower of our blog you’ll know that a number of us have written about changes and updates we’ve made to our homes. I have to admit there has been a touch of jealousy on my part when I’ve read these especially since my house was in desperate need of repairs.
I have good excuses for this. I had three out of four children in college at the same time, a daughter got married (think royal wedding cost with less TV), I’ve been writing books at a mad pace and last but not least and probably the biggest reason the work didn’t happen sooner was that I like to travel more than I like to fix up my house. The money was spent on having fun.
That being said, things around my house had gotten so bad I wouldn’t even have company over. The carpet needed to be replaced, the outside need boards removed and replaced, and a good old fashion coat of paint was need in many places.
So when others on the blog started talking about updates I decided it was time. I now have a beautiful new living room floor that I could kick myself for not getting sooner. The outside in front and all the back of the house has been replaced including new gutters including a drain chain. We still need to paint but it is sound for the winter now. Instead of paying to have the stairs to my office finished with wooden steps I took on the job myself.
There are still have projects on the list but if someone says they’re planning to take a cruise around the world I’ll do that instead!
I also have one more thing new. Snowbound with Dr. Delectable my Christmas book is out this month. I’m as proud of it as I am my house.

Sparks fly when they are forced to work together. And as the first snow of the season begins to fall, they have no where to run…
