What’s Jack up to? Today he’s going nuts over the electrician who’s come to hang the new chandelier. Stop jumping on the man, Jack! He’s here to do a job not play with you. Sorry Mister.

What makes a house a home? And why to man and women usually have such different ideas about it. After much prodding and finally me just going for it, I finally got a new chandelier. I love it. It’s simple enough to satisfy the DH who likes all things minimal and just ornate enough to make me feel like I’ve been decorating. It’s a far cry from the blue (yes,blue) and white pendant light that was there before.

I’ve been putting quite a few little touches on the house this week. Hanging an old painting that I had in storage for years (jury is still out on it) and putting up a cool iron cross that I found for a steal (the DH jury is still out on that one).

I’m happy though. We’ve been in our little cottage for 2 years now. It was time. There’s just something to little touches that change a house into a home.

Now, onto the next project! Sorry DH.

    Loved reading the natiarrve of Twitter. I was a skeptical user started up once thought it was pointless. Then started up again about a year later, started following the right people, and I’ve been a hard-core user ever since I work in youth ministry in Livermore, CA and have seen Twitter as a great way to connect with the youth of our church. So, thanks!Also, I don’t know if you ever saw something we did, Twitter of Faith. You can check it out. It was a pretty cool thing ended up being primarily Christians but we tried to open it up to people of other faiths (or no faiths).Thanks for Twitter!
