Cornices…

April 1 and we had a light dusting of snow awaiting us when we awoke. I like to think it was our Davey saying, “Hi, Mom” Today is the twenty-fourth anniversary of his leaving us… 

Well, Scott has all four cornices completed, but (isn’t there always a ‘but’?) in order to install the last cornice, he needs to lower the opening to the original closet. This ‘closet’ is the future home of recessed shelving for some of our treasures.  We decided to call this area our Knick knack puka…

Anyway, he framed in the necessary area and it is now dry walled and mudded. 

He has made so much progress he is removing the left-over wood scraps from all the window framing and cornice building. Then… (there’s always a ‘then’ too!) he is staging the woods for building our Knick knack puka… 

Update on our Happy dog… she is now standing (independently) and romping throughout the day. As well as  becoming quite vocal if we move without her approval. Our biggest fear is she might try to jump. We know that could be not successful and she could injure herself. We are watching her closely. 

So, all in all, progress is happening and we are all improving…

  1. It is looking beautiful, and the cornices are unbelievable!
    So glad Happy is up and about. Hopefully she will learn to bark when she wants to get down like Dagmar does

  2. Hoe nice that Davey sent you a sign. He surely knows you love snow. Cornices look fantastic. And Happy’s progress is amazing.
    Blessings to the whole family.
