Studio/Home Restoration Update

Every day, we make a little progress in restoring damage from the storm and are grateful for each step. The studio is now completed. We only need add a few chairs, a small table and a plant or two to enjoy sitting out there more. I couldn't include a picture of the studio without including a picture of the live oak that my mama planted in 1964. It has survived Hurricane Camille, Katrina and the most recent tornado.

The stepping stones to the patio and the stepping stones within the patio are ones my daddy and I made in the sixties. The patio is our favorite thing thus far. We love having reminders of my parents around.

And the patio would not be complete without a reminder of our dear Lady. She spent a lot of time in the studio.

Every sign of progress in the neighborhood is uplifting to us. We are so happy for our next-door neighbors on either side. Both are going to have very nice houses. This one is the house that was hit by one of our trees and belongs to Tony and Sheila. They are making some beautiful improvements. Our other neighbor has just started rebuilding. We're glad they have decided to stay. They have been our neighbors for 10 and 34 years respectively.

How encouraging! Your studio is cute and I love the reminder of Lady. I miss her and I didn't even meet her. :o) My kitty is very wigged out because all her people are not home. Every time I call Hubby, she is meowing loudly in the background! After three weeks, I am beginning to miss her too.

We're enjoying it in the afternoons, Theresa as the sun sets behind us. We have since added a couple of chairs and a small table. We miss Lady but know the Lord took her so that she didn't have to suffer or be traumatized. I would love another one but don't think it will happen anytime soon.

Mis,Margaret and Mr,Don I like your blog. Can you be my other grandma and Mr Don my grandfather? I have only 2 grandmothers and 1 grand father so then I could have 3 grandmothers and 2 grandfathers.
Please be part of my life.
