Sunday! Football!! :)

Today was a very nice day – things accomplished in the morning, and a nice afternoon of football. The Giants game was a good first start to the season – although I enjoyed the second half more than the first. Go Giants!

This morning we had intended to sleep in a bit, but we were awakened relatively early at 7 am by Ariel, who decided it was about time for us to wake up and give her a morning petting. I actually woke up to find her standing on me looking at me. Sarcastic smile She’s so darned cute I can’t get mad at her, but I sure wish I could teach her the concept of sleeping in!!

We had some coffee and read our morning blogs/forums/facebook pages! It takes a long time to get caught up on what is going on in everyone’s lives. Winking smile 

Harry wanted to finish the windows in the guest room today. They look so nice! Notice how dark it is outside – I took these pictures a little before 6 pm. We’re settling into fall and winter weather – lots of dark, dreary days and not as much sunshine.


The view from our front step this afternoon….

My main project this morning was in the kitchen. We’ve been watching shows on HGTV about staging and de-cluttering, and how important it is in the selling process. Even though we’re still a few years away from selling, I’ve become aware of how cluttered our kitchen counters are, so today I decided to tackle that project.

The finished product…


Wow, I didn’t realize we had counter space!! Open-mouthed smile


  1. The kitchen looks "show" ready!! Good job on those windows too!

    Wish we could get some of that cooler fall weather. It was 96 here today.

  2. Wow, kitchen looks terrific!
    I have to admit, your Giants looked great, but my Eagles played like crap :)

  3. LOL At least the second half Giants team looked great! My dad used to say that the Giants had two teams - the first half team and the second half team! ;) He would get MORE nervous if they played great the first half, because he always said they had plenty of time to mess it up!

    My friend Rose was in mourning over the Eagles game too. ;)
