It's Christmastime! This year, we have one of the biggest, nicest trees we've had in awhile. We're choosing to embrace its natural beauty - as you can see, our ornaments are a bit sparse!
The main reason we originally thought to go light on the ornaments was because we weren't sure how Tink would react to the tree. She's been really good, though! We hung up a mini stocking for her. :-)
We're under construction!
It turns out it was a good thing we didn't put the lights on the tree, because it's already been moved all over the living room. Everytime I go in there it seems like the furniture is in a different spot. We're planning so that once all of the construction is complete in the living room & den, we can get new carpet. This one has been through a lot (plus it's ugly!).
My amazing husband is redoing our ceiling. Originally, it had ceiling tiles over the insulation pictured above. It was a very low ceiling, so we really had to watch when we turned on the ceiling fan. I hit my hands many times doing yoga in there!
He removed all the tiles & insulation & we're going to have a vaulted ceiling now. I'm so excited!
Right now, we have either bare wood or the pieces that keep the insulation from molding as our barriers from the cold. I'm thankful that we've had a mini-warm-spell since he is doing the majority of the work this week.
This end, the sunroom, has insulation up already. It's amazing how much difference it makes in the temperatures. He's also working on lighting, which so far looks great. It will be hidden in the beams, causing the light to bounce off the ceiling.
I can't wait for the finished product. I'm so thankful to have such a handy husband!
