One good thing… {day 102 to day 108}

April 17, 2016

Every day may not be good… but there’s one good thing in every day!” ~Alice Morse Earle

I welcome you to my new project 365 and weekly link up #onegoodthing. My friend Leslie has agreed to help me host the link-up which goes live each Monday (well, actually Sunday night around 11 pm if you want to be exact) and we would love for you to link up and share your #onegoodthing with us and our readers. It can be anything good that day, week, month… a photo, an anecdote, a poem. There are no rules, just goodness and hopefully smiles along the way.

This past week was a good week. I finally got back into the swing of things at work and with each day, I’m starting to feel better. I still have a bit of an annoying cough and get tired much faster than normal, but all in all, I’m getting back to normal.

We also – finally – saw some progress at the new house. I’m slightly frustrated at the progress of the renovation. I feel as though things could go faster and something should be getting worked on each day of the week. Instead, there are days and days were nothing gets done. I’ve never really dealt with a renovation project of this scope so I don’t really know what to expect and how fast it should progress. I’m just anxious to move into our new home and start putting my stamp on it. I have so many ideas but until the majority of the construction is finished there is nothing for me to do…  We’ll see how this week goes!

My mom came to visit this weekend and we were able to show her the house for the first time. It’s exciting to share it with her and I can’t wait to pick her brain for gardening ideas. We had a nice family dinner Saturday night, drove along the ocean on A1A on the way home and did a bit of shopping today at Aldi after lunch with grandma. The weather was great during the day, and we only had a bit of rain last night.

    Lovely visit from your mom – how nice that she got to see the house. I don’t know how long renovations usually take, but based on progress in my own house – about 10 years!! LOL
    I still have no wall between my downstairs bathroom and laundry room! It’s so bad, but I really want it all different and we have no idea what to do yet. There is a curtain up – so there is privacy, but boy – we gotta get moving on it soon.

      Lol! I know what it’s like having a house – the work is truly never done. And I’m sure over time there will be things we’ll want to change. This is a first for me too and I’m trying to be as patient as I can be but I’m anxious to move and enjoy living in our new house.

    Whoa – that does look like some serious renovation. The pool, too? Oh well, might as well do it right, right?!
    Aldi, huh? We supply them with some of their frozen special buys 🙂

      It really is serious business. The pool is getting a bit of an overhaul since there was a situation with the steps leading up to the pool. My FIL and hubby thought it was a bit dangerous so we changed it to be an even surface. The plumbing should be mostly done in my gutted bathrooms and walls will hopefully go up very soon. Yes, Aldi. 🙂 It’s a little slice of home. I love German week!!! 🙂
