Slowly but surely things are getting accomplished and put away in our house. Earlier this week the new couch arrived, and as you can see --
The 1990s floral wallpaper border has been painstakingly removed from the kitchen.
Ahhhh, that's better!
Beneath the house a vapor barrier has been added for protection from moisture and tomorrow afternoon the new carpet and kitchen tile will be installed.
There are plenty more little projects, but that will be the last of the big, expensive ones.
The heat in July and August here have broken all records and it's been hot and sweaty working. Last night after dinner the humidity was down and we were motivated to get out of the house and "stretch our eyes."
The highway into Georgetown crosses a bridge high over the Sampit River about a mile from our house. The paper mill that provides many jobs for the town is upstream, and a huge county marina and park lie beneath the bridge.
From a trail and observation deck you can view the remnants of old bridges replaced over the years by bigger and better ones.
We walked the trail with Bob the Border Collie enjoying all the enticing smells apparent only to a dog's nose and then we headed toward home. The sun had set and the beautiful full moon was rising over Winyah Bay near our house.
