We are renovating all the time now. My husband saved up all his working days and now that he retired, we are able to finally repair and change and breathe new life into old, falling apart things. We have a butler’s pantry now, with like 2 things left to do with it. We have plumbing which works now everywhere. We have a new fence and two new gates on either side of the house. We have an opressive tree limb cut down from the neighbor’s neglected tree that was starting to kill our trees so the front yard is a sunnier, healthier spot now. We have a sidewalk formed and ready for concrete. And we have a new screened in and roofed back porch coming where a naked concrete slab now stands. It is a lot of work, haven’t been to the pool in a while. But there is a fresh spirit in this old house’s bones. And this has done the world of good to our love of being in this house. We really love it. We will live it more once the hottub is installed lol, but it is great for morale of our family. It is a happier place. It is fun to build something new or better together and get use of it. And I praise God for it all! He is the giver of new life and He brought light back to this darkness and life to these dry bones. I am so thankful to God!!!
