Now that the kitchen is done, I have been thinking/looking at various floorings to put in our 18ft vaulted living center, stairway and loft area. Right now we have carpeting…..but should I replace it with hardwood? AND if I do hardwood, should I just bite the bullet and put it through the rest of the downstairs too….including the kitchen, 1/2 bath, hallway, laundry room and front foyer? That would be approximately 1400 sq ft……not cheap to say the least! OR, should I just be cheap and practical and replace the carpeting with new carpeting? I am stumped! First though…..and yuck about this…..my house was built in 1988. Do you know what that means? Yes, our vaulted living center and loft areas have popcorn ceilings. Glory be!! I've already decided to leave the stuff on the vaulted ceiling in the living center (after all how many people look that high up anyway?), but I think I need to have the ceiling updated in the loft area with the 2 skylight chutes as well. Hopefully, we can hire our son to do that, otherwise Jennifer (my trusty contractor) will be getting another job. No way would I even attempt to do it!!! I will let you know what happens.
In the meantime, here are the envelopes I sent out this week:
And here is what I've been doing all week. This is pair #6, I'll have you know. I found an awesome pattern for some real fun socks online this week and have ordered a ton of yarn to play with, so stay tuned. I can hardly wait for the mailman! Did you note my matching reading glasses? I couldn't resist!
And that's about the news! No books again, and I must admit that I really miss reading. One of these days….!! Hope you are having a great summer and are staying busy. I just love all the sunshine and no snow. lol Until next week….
