Carpeting, at last!

Long ago, we identified carpeting as the "last step"
in this prolonged process of building our dream home.
This day was a momentous occasion, indeed!

Our son, Matthew, helped us find a great deal
through a friend of his, Tom.

I could not wait
to feel the well-padded, soft carpet under my toes
and the quiet footfalls and lack of echo
throughout this house.

Padding in comes the carpet!

I can barely contain my excitement!
It has been such a long journey...almost 4 years
since we broke ground.

Wow! There it is!

And in our bedroom, too.

Finally finished.

First visitors...

I was sitting at my computer and my peripheral
vision caught some movement out the window."
A wild turkey!

My first official visitor since moving in was
Ruth Walsh, a longtime midwifery friend from
West Virginia. We had a lovely weekend together.
