.....that's what i'm talking about!!



today was my kids' last day of school .... honors assembly ... half day .... pool party ... watermelon .... summer joy began at noon ..... late in the day, i stopped by my real house to get the mail .... and BOOM ... joy, joy, joy, joy .... my house just seems SOOOO close to ready ... oh my! i'm jump for joy ecstatic .... 

here's my kitchen in all its delicious ornageness ......  
..... and ... another shot ....where the range goes ....and a glimpse of counters that were installed today .....

...and a close up of the counter, the groovy windowsill counter, the orange wall .... bliss! .... i know these aren't that exciting for YOU ... and i don't know if i have the words to tell you just how happy i am about all this .... eek!
and here's a shot of the deck .... still needs railings .... but it was air yesterday ... at least today there's something to take a pic of ! 

oh .... it needs a bit more than railings ..... that first step out the door is a dooooozy ....and off the deck is my dumpster ... and, though it's been handy, i'm not keeping it ..... it was just emptied ... it's usually overflowing .....and here's the money shot ... the happy shot ... the color joy .... from where i'm standing in the kitchen, you can see orange kitchen walls, yellow family room walls, and green sunroom walls .... colorcolorcolorcolor ..... tra la la .....

this is an artist's blog ... and i mean to write about my paintings and collage and such .... but today, the art form i'm blogging is dance ..... the happy dance! .... 

what have you done the happy dance for lately?
