There's nothing like coming home after a long, busy day....unless it's coming home to a project FINISHED!!
My amazing contractor finished up the trim and painting around the new windows yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased!
Despite my long day and the late hour when I got home I set to work getting things back in order again.
I poured myself a cocktail and started cleaning windows and hanging curtains.
Yes, I know - they are wrinkled. I don't iron. Don't judge.
If the wrinkles don't fall out on their own (please do!) I have a steamer I can use on them if absolutely necessary.
The house looks so cozy now looking in from the deck. I had to snap a couple of photos when I went out with the pups.
The table will look better surrounded by loved ones but that will happen soon. I'm ready to host another dinner party now that the house is back in order.
And of course I have to christen my new best friend. You can read all about her here.
I was glad I got all the work done before I went to bed so I could just relax with my coffee and enjoy the beautiful view when I woke up. The sun wasn't shining yet, it was barely over the mountain, but the view is still gorgeous.
From the living room I see out onto the conversation area and firepit on the deck, and beyond to the woods and the mountain range. And the flat feeder which the blue jays have taken over completely!
Can you see the two greedy blue jays fighting over the feeder?
From the dining room I see the outdoor dining set and also the woods and mountains beyond. And the goldfinches.....they are pretty much at that feeder all. day. long.
I don't know if I've even seen any other bird on this feeder yet other than the finches.
From the guest room window I have a great view of the neighbor's horses and their little red barn. I think that might have been the point during my initial tour when I fell in love with the house.
I mean, come on. How could I not?
I can see the horses out of one of my master bedroom windows also. And I hear them clomping around during the night....it's become a very comforting sound for me in the past few months, once I got used to the noise and stopped thinking it was a bear on my deck!
From my other master bedroom window and also one of the master bathroom windows I can see my little garden cottage and the woodlands beyond. It's so private and quiet.
I'm so very fortunate to be able to look out my new windows onto views that make me smile and feel at peace.
What's your favorite view from your home?
