My house is a disaster inside and out. Outside there is old siding, new siding, insulation and countless pieces of stuff unidentifiable to me but I'm sure somebody knows what it is. There's a really ugly dump truck in the driveway collecting all the stuff being thrown away and our two tall cedars by the front door have been cut down and are laying on the front lawn in a heap. Inside it's dust you can write in, tools, nails, screws, and a whole lot more of those unidentifiable bits in every room. Pictures and other things hung on outside walls are now piled on tables and chairs because once the hammering started nothing was safe.
It will take a while yet to get it finished and all the little things done - outdoor lights, door handles and locks, mailbox, new shrubs, shutters - but I can live with the mess as long as I know there's a payoff at the end. I am so excited to finally be getting this done that I can't help but be very, very thankful.
What are you thankful for today?
