It’s All About Electricity – Lights and Fans

I haven’t done a Monday blog in a while.  Today it was full speed ahead.  The electrician (aka Sparky) from Hays Electric came to put in more lights, fans and appliances.  And I was anxious to check out the progress when I got home from work.

Now remember I said that I was furnishing the house with a medieval/victorian/eclectic theme?  In the following photos you will see what I mean.  The medieval will come a little bit later.

I fell in love with this small fixture with its etched glass and rough bronze.  This is in the breakfast-nook

This is a small light under the staircase bar.  I wanted something a little subtle as it may be used a a back light for TV watching

This is a fixture over the kitchen sink with the panoramic windows.  This was a a polished silver.  It was a hard one to pick because I wanted it to blend but not really be a focus in the kitchen.

More to come tomorrow, or at least in a few days.  Can’t really promise tomorrow as I have been so busy with work and packing and other commitments.

This journey is coming to a close really fast now.  Landscaping will have to wait until spring as will some of the exterior painting.  So I may have a few days to relax after moving, or maybe not.

I really appreciate everyone reading my blog.  It has been a kind of therapy along with a motivating factor to keep me positive and on track.  To be able to look back and see where we started and where we have come up to now.  It has been through hard work and getting out there even when we were tired and didn’t want to do anything, that this is coming together.  Taking almost every extra penny and putting it into the house and keeping the dream alive.

Dreams are powerful, but the power only comes if you are willing to do the work toward that ultimate goal.  This can be applied to everything in your life, not just building your dream home.  My son’s dream is to be a nurse.  It is only going to happen with hard work and keeping the goal in focus.  He just has to believe that he can do it and it will happen.

Enough preaching, for now 🙂
