Anyone remember that show where someone would try to finish a project in a weekend? 

This weekend we had things that needed to get done.. mowing, trimming, and moving some furniture. We also wanted to go see a house that is for sale. Now normally, these things wouldn’t have been a big deal, but the kids were catering a wedding and so grandson Connor was here most of Saturday and till after noon on Sunday.  *G*  Does anything get done quickly with an almost 2 year old is helping?  And to top it off, it was hot and humid which means we move a little slower. We did what we could with him around, but left the house visit and furniture moving till he was gone.  

What you are seeing in a small room off our bedroom. I believe at one time it was a sleeping porch. It hasn’t really served any purpose the last few years.  Even though we are thinking of moving in the future, I decided it was time to put that space to use. At the same time I needed a place to set up a library.  We moved one of the bookcases out of a guest room and then wrestled the other one up the stairs..  If you have ever moved furniture up the stairs of an older home, you know what fun that is.  Anyway, it all turned out well and I have been collecting books from all over the house and putting them in this room where I can sort through them, decide what I want to keep and what needs to find a new home.  My legs hurt from going up and down stairs.

We also moved the matching desk into this room, added a desk chair, another armchair and footstool and it is very cozy, a great place to sit and read, listen to music or get some paperwork or pc work done.  We already have an office/den to work in, but if we do sell our home, an extra space for parents might be a good selling point.  It has a large window in each of the short walls.  You can see the edge of the desk in the first photo. The second photo shows our garage from the opposite window… its a long way down!  And the reason why we are considering moving… stairs…

Oh and here is our little helper, working very hard…
