SNOW!

The weatherman was right for a change. Two inches of snow and it's still coming down. Our first snow of the year and the only snow I've ever experienced in this house. It's 25 degrees.

From the map, it looks like it will all be over in a couple more hours.

As for the dining room. I got the arch roughed in and the baseboards replaced. I need a 1x6x12 to finish the trim caps. Even though I had promised myself I would not spend any money on this room, I have no choice if I want to get it finished. I'll be heading out to Lowe's in a couple hours.

I also finished the window trim and replaced the molding around the door to the attic.

Today, I want to continue working on the arch. I'll use drywall tape and a soupy plaster mix to smooth it out. I need to sand the corner of the dining room where water damage had ruined the plaster. Then I'll caulk everything and start painting. I was a little more ambitious in my plans yesterday than I could manage. I quit around 10pm. With the weather, there's not much else I can do today.

Hi There ..
Found your blog by way of Flower Lady's Musing. I have enjoyed seeing your remodeling photos. I love old homes, they are the best... but lots of W-O-R-K!!!I find that my own home is ALWAYS a work in progress.. never ends! ha!

** On the snow... wish we had just a little.. There have been some pretty cold temps., but NO SNOW. This part of Winter I am not so fond of. Just kinda yucky, unless there is a little snow to beautify the trees.

Love to come visit again to see how your home progresses!

Beautiful Winter Blessings to YOU!!
