Well, I don't have a very good camera and my phone photos are not acceptable to show off to the general public, but today I broke down and took this phone photo of the beautiful crown molding in the corner of our dining room between our entryway and our living room so that I could have a way to get in and write a blog post.
And then low and behold, I can now get in to the blog creation area of blogger without uploading a photo! So what's up with that? And now blogger isn't even liking my inferior phone photos and will not load them onto the blog. I guess I'll keep trying, so check back later to see the beautiful crown molding that is the subject of this post. I know that my computer is getting a bit up there in years, but I still like it and want to keep using it for a while still . . . anyway . . . It still appears that the mouse won't click into the screen, but I can use the arrows. And so even though I can't load the picture, I can write the post. So, here it goes:
A little more than 17 years ago we bought our current home, the first home we have ever purchased in our nearly 30 years of marriage. We did a lot of striping of wallpaper, pulling out of old carpet, moving off walls, replacing of doors, caulking, sanding, painting etc. etc. The children and other extended family members helped. A lot. Every day after school we all worked on the house. I believe that we spent Christmas Eve of that year painting. It was a very busy time.
One of the things that my DH insisted on was installing crown molding in our entry way, dining room and living room. He spent a lot of time selecting the molding pieces (three different moldings--two for the base and then another on the top) cutting them just right, installing, and painting them. Initially I was not as excited as he was about the crown molding, but he wanted to do it so badly, and I must say that he did an excellent job. Some days when I am tired I just sit down and look up at the beautiful crown molding that represents a labor of love from my dear DH. It adds a touch of elegance to our otherwise rather ordinary, very lived in home. I can sit and rest from a busy day, and feel a bit of calmness and peace while gazing at our still elegant and beautiful crown molding. I love it. Isn't it great?
