progress



Everyone who has been reading this blog knows that since I broke my wrist I really hadn't done anything to my new military quarters. Now that I'm almost 100%, I have started to do a bit here and there. The first picture just shows the curtain I finally hung. I was getting sick of staring at this bare window while I blogged. I like when a window is pretty enough not to need a curtain, but this one certainly is not.

The second picture is of my window with the same curtain as the other window and of my sliding glass doors with my accidental curtains. By accidental I mean I bought 2 panels of burgundy curtains to hang there and when I got home I realized I was short by about 6 inches. That's what I get for not measuring. Anyway I went out and bought 2 white shears and put them up just to make sure I had the entire window covered. I ended up with an effect I really like.

The third is my bathroom, thanks to K Mart. I had originally planned on doing it in ducks, but when I saw this pink set, I knew I wanted it for my downstairs bathroom. I also got a toilet seat, toothbrush holder, soap holder, cup, cotton ball container, and rug in the same pattern.

Well this is the extent of my work so far. I am glad I am finally able to get something accomplished.

I'm not so good at decorating...my girlfriend D does it for me...thank God she doesnt charge...but this is her thing. I just cook for her and her hubby and watch her twins for them every now and then...it's worth it. It looks great...take your time....

Hey girl, it all looks great! Glad your wrist is back to normal and you're able to get some things accomplished! :) Oh, the pics of the park on my blog are from a park here in town, near the base. We've made a couple trips over to Duncan just to check it out and see what all is there. We've not been to the prairie dog park yet, but it sounds like something the kids would like. Where is that??? Thanks for all the great comments on my posts. :) Talk to you later!!!

Very pretty, Christina. I know you're glad you can finally use that arm again. Poor Rob is going nuts trying to keep his arm immobile and he's only been doing it for three days! It's amazing the things we're finding out you can't do with just one hand.

I love your curtains. I love that great big comfortable looking sofa too!
