Good morning peevers.

It's a bit yucky out there today, overcast and really grey.

As you have probably gathered we are in the middle of yet more work re-decorating the place. At least the worst is over- a year ago we had that water pipe burst and as a result the kitchen got stripped out and rebuilt, as did the utility room, hall, landing and stairs and downstairs cloakroom!

Have you ever looked round your house and looked at something that got done and wished you'd done it differently? Some things are easy to change, others can only get changed with a major re-build.

It's easy to talk about such things but needless to say money often comes into the decision, but let us know your thoughts because the POTD is;

Wishing you'd done some modelling work on the house differently.

To cheer me, and hopefully you, up on a grey day here are a couple of shots taken on warmer and brighter days;

Good morning, Jezer! My favorites of your pics are always the ones with cat or dog! Your animals really enjoy their lives on your property. That is a lovely field of flowers and very inviting.

Wishing you'd done some modelling work on the house differently.

Your recent peeves are really hitting "home" for me since my recently purchased previously owned home needs a lot done. As of this weekend, more than half of the floors will be done. I have plans to make two bathrooms into one big one and to create a big open space with living room and spare bedroom. The bedroom wall along the hallway will be removed and the wall between living room and bedroom will be lowered to a half wall with arches across the top. So far that planning is in my head.

A nosy neighbor who was came over looking at everything and quizzing me has already said he would never combine bathrooms! But he still lives with a spouse. It's just me and the kits but having a toilet with a problem and not another to use would be aggravating. On the other hand, my big family had only one toilet for several years so we managed.

Peeve of the day considered, I may be wishing I had done differently!!! Surging ahead . . . .

Those words "I wish I had" seem to always come back to mind after a project is near completion or totally done.

Beautiful pics Jezer! Your kit looks much like my Max ! And Ohhhhhh how I wish my yard looked like yours! The flowers... oh my mercy! Enchanting. Both pics are simply enchanting. I love to frame them and put them on the wall in my livingroom!!! So cheerful and happy, makes me grin just seeing them! Thank your for that brightness in this dreary, cold and overcast day here in the middle of nowhere.
Peeve ~
Just a few nights ago DH and I were talking about what we wished we'd done differently when we remodeled the kitchen and den. I love my kitchen, but hate the den. Bummer.
Maybe next summer we will make some changes.
Have a great day everyone!

That would be the roof over our kitchen deck. We are going to rebuild it so that it looks like the front porch roof instead of the after thought it looks like. Damn contractors, if you want it done right do it yourself.

Good peeve, Jezer! Sometimes it's really hard to picture the final outcome in your head, and when you fish a project it's not what you'd hoped for. <sigh>

I wish we'd made the garage bigger (again). Had it extended to hold another car and now the 'another' car we got is so big it's knocked one of the others outside so one now lives behind the garage. It's a Defender 90 so it can take it but it does look a bit unhappy out there. No way on earth was the new one going to live outside though.
