Life on the Prairie

The lake cabin has been closed for the season and we have moved down from the lake to the prairie.  Our new digs is an old (+100 years) house in Dave’s home town.  you know the one…..there is only 30 people here.

It definitely needs some love and attention.  Here is a little peak at what we walked into…..

All of the carpet needed to be pulled up and this back entryway got some new linoleum to take that yucky stuffs place.

Even though there are still a TON of boxes in the living room and dining room, I was able to organize enough of the kitchen to have a clear work space.  Thank goodness!  Cooking at home is one of my favorite past times and not being able to do that was brutal.

Here is another shot as I was getting dinner ready.

Jules is digging the banister.

Behind Jules is a gorgeous leaded glass window – I will have to take some window pics to showcase them.  Below is another pic of some leaded windows.  This room is supposed to be the dining room, but for now it is functioning as my library.  Hello!  I need those books out and available for my reading pleasure.

The downstairs bathroom has been cleaned and painted.  I will have to address the floor – unless any of you have some kind of linoleum floor cleaning secret.  I have not been able to clean it any better than this ……

If cleaning is your super power….share your knowledge!

Last item – did you notice a tiny kennel in the dining room/library pic?  well……..
