Sunny Saturday's Freebies

The weather this weekend in our part of Germany is bloody brilliant :-) No rain, blue skies as far as the eye can see, and 86°F/30°C. And it's going to be even better tomorrow. :-)) Not that I've had a chance to be outside today, besides walking to work from the streetcar, but I sure will tomorrow. And instead of turning on the air-conditioning at work today, I opened all the windows instead, so that is kind of like being outside, right? ;-)
I continued to work on our kitchen before going to work this afternoon, but I am far from finished. A lot of you have been asking how the house is coming along, sorry I haven't been updating lately, but I just got to a point where I didn't want to talk, think or even be reminded of it. Living in a construction site was about all I could stand. Well I have gotten over feeling sorry for myself for buying it and willingly doing this to myself and am beginning to enjoy renovating again. I think the problem was that we started in every room inside and outside the house at the same time, so we never really had one room finished. And I am not talking decoration here, but basics as paint and electricity. Now I can at least see light at the end of the tunnel or better I can again imagine what it will look like when I am finished. So progress is slow but we are getting there. No idea when, but the journey is the reward :-) Beside in a year from now, I will be sitting in my garden, feeling proud of what we have accomplished, and just plain enjoy myself. When I have some time to spare, I'll try to update my decorating blog, so I can show you what we have done so far. I'll keep you posted, promise.

Now enough blah-blah, here are the freebies you have been waiting for: 2x

Have a great weekend

Wow, I bet that was totally overwhelming! We have done an overhaul, but except for the bathroom, they were rooms that were not needed at the time and even that got old.
Thanks for the update (and of course the list,too)!

I can't imagine how you find the time to do it all! At least when we built our house we were living somewhere else so we got a break every night! Thanks for posting every day!

Melissa said...

Enjoy your lovely weather-86* sounds heavenly compared to the hot Texas weather I'm having.

I appreciate you taking the time to post the freebies because I know that you have a lot going on with remodeling and working. Thanks for all that you do.

I can't imagine how you pull it all off but thank you so much for the constant updates of freebies! Your blog makes my day!

Oh Good! I can't wait to see the progess! Some of us have been with you since you first even considered purchasing the house! I check frequently to see what creative thing you will have done!

Can't wait to see new pics. I sure hope all is well with you and your fellas!

Big Hugs!

We just got back from living in Germany for a few months. We were stationed at Ramstein AFB. When we got back to the states my friend recommended this site and I love it! I think it's crazy you are in Saarland, which is so close to where we just were! It's so beautiful in those parts of Germany and I am jealous that the weather has been so great lately because we are missing it! It was rainy a lot while we were there because it was spring time. Anyway, I am so addicted to "collecting" digital scrapbooking stuff that I don't have time to scrapbook! I guess I should work on that! Thanks for compiling these lists of freebies-it's appreciated! Enjoy your beautiful weather in Germany!
