This trip actually happened on January 25th – I’m trying to be
a little more timely with the posts again.
We are finally back on track with working on the room. I had
a total knee replacement on December 4th and was unable to
stay in Rowe (mostly because I didn’t want to freeze) and the
stairs were too steep to go up.
The dogs are really looking to see if anyone is getting food
in the kitchen but it looks like they are admiring the room
with its basecoat of paint.
It’s beginning to look like something good is happening. Or that we
might finish it someday.
The next job is sanding or stripping the woodwork. The doors will be
sanded but I will be stripping the mantel.
Bill thought the fireplace screen made a good crate for Sophie – she looks
less than enthused but just patiently awaited her release.
