I'm so glad, I didn't want side-ways rain coming in my room!

Dear Mrs. Mac..
Do you think that you will get snow before everything is done? I hope not.
It surely is like Maggie ann says a dream house.
It will be so nice when you send a picture of the window room with all of you seated cozily inside and the little Gift's eyes beaming with joy!
It is almost Christmas time!!
I always dream of a green Christmas! Never happens though. There are just too many children praying for snow and God always sends it to them!!Ha!!...Love Terry

Miss Terry ... we just have to put on the doors then it can snow. The workers can work in the cold weather outside (just not a blizzard ... or weather in the sub freezing category) The window room you are referring to is a picture I posted as an example showing the window type (sash and window grid pattern). I will have lots of windows but not two story windows. You will definately get to see a post showing my "window" room ... but don't be too disappointed if it's not as you picture in your mind :) Can you just imaging having to clean two stories of windows (I wouldn't have time to relax). My dining room will definately be "the window" room of the house. It has three beautifully placed windows, a single French glass door with a transom window above the door ... looking out into the forest where the deer and moose have been seen. Of course I am planning an area in the backyard to be fenced so my little Gift can play safely too. Can't wait to get it finished.

Dear Mrs. Mac...That sounds so nice about the deer and the moose! They are such graceful animals and I love them!
It will be hunting season here and I always hate to see it come.
They disturb the poor animals so much that they run out on to the roads and get run over by cars.

I would just love to see the little Gift's face when he sees those deer.
His tender eyes would just show so much love for them and he would have such a sweet, gentle smile, I JUST know!...Love Terry
