I'm back! Kind OF!

My computer finally died. Kev took it and worked on rebuilding it. New hard drive, reload the trend micro, and started reloading the programs I use! Last I heard it was 80% complete! Need to reload a bunch of programs!

Kevin is home for half a day, I'm using his!!!

Life has been CRAZY. Mom is out of rehab on the 2nd broken hip, refuses to come stay with me for even a short while.

Now, remember that HAIL storm I won't let you forget from last April???? The roof led to chimney repair, which led to gutters, which led to porch repair which meant redo- it was completely rotted out!!!

Here has been my life the last week. The week before I was ill, and before that I was running back and forth to the hospital!









Rain and hail rotted the side walls of the old porch. The roofers had to replace the metal on top of the arch of the roof! They had already started ripping out!


We replaced wood with bricks!



The arch needed support, the double door was a fake!


This will be the new door!


Trying to get the old door out!


There's a big hole in the front of my house!!!!!!!!!!



More holes! The brick man repairs cracks in the house, all this work is going on at the same time! It was a three ring circus!


Gutters!


Masking off for painting.


Time for Paint



more gutters!


But, I think the end RESULT was worth it!!!!




Tell me, what do you think? I take criticism well! Now, to paint the front entry hall, and get the inside of the door jams finished! The snowball effect just keeps going!!!

Have a great weekend!

I really want to see it in person! But I still think the columns should be the same color as the door. They are an architectural feature and they're lost blue!
