    1. Thanks! I am awaiting to see more. First set of doors in today, tomorrow the next set. Love transformation, it is sometimes a long process, but exciting! Thanks for stopping by!:-)

  1. I can make out from your post how much you are enjoying being the ‘Demolition woman’. I just finished redoing my daughter’s room, so I can imagine the happy space you are in. Happy Remodeling!
    And Happy Diwali wishes to you! May it bring Peace, Prosperity and Light in your lives!!:)

    1. Thank you Hema! I do love remodeling, kinda shows doesn’t it!:-) And I enjoy too learning about that which you share. I didn’t know what Diwali was so I looked it up Wikipedia, and it said this, “The celebration of Diwali as the “victory of good over evil”, refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one’s true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening comes compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings ananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light.” What a celebration you must be having and how good to remember the inner light that is in all of us and connects us to one another. It seems so often that we forget our oneness and concentrate on our differences instead. I wish you a rejuvenated sense of Inner Light and the peace that comes with that my friend!

      1. Wow! Wikipedia and you got it absolutely right. That’s what this festival actually means- to kill the darkness of ignorance, greed, pride, desire, and anger within you so that you can receive God’s light of love, bliss and ananda. But somewhere along the way we forget it’s real meaning and end up focusing on the rituals and that which is unimportant. Thank you my friend for reminding me, so I focus on what’s really important in my life.:)

    1. “It’s just one thing after another, isn’t it?” Oh good grief Lynn, you have no idea. And tomorrow the contractor is coming back to remove the french doors – 24 feet of doors installed improperly. Yes. But I am hoping this will do it. But, we have been able to see just how beautiful it is to have so many almost continuous feet of glass and it is WONDERFUL, so put up with a reinstall, I gladly will.
