By Skeeter I once again left my Georgia Gardens for an unexpected trip to Tennessee to be with my family. It is becoming a bit tiresome to tell of our trying year but such is life at times. It is how we deal with these moments that make us who we are and stronger people from our trails and tribulations known as life...
What was to be a normal Same Day Surgery for Gall Bladder removal, turned sour for my father. He ended up in the hospital for 4 days thus my unplanned trip home. We were on the edge of our seats for a while but things are back on track.
The positive side of being home, I was able to check out the progress of their house renovations from the May Floods. (Click HERE to view that Blog) The kitchen is coming together with a new floor, new dry wall, paint and new cabinets in place. The counter tops were under construction as of this photo being snapped. Wood Flooring and paint colors the wall of the bedrooms.
The Guest Bathroom has a new tub and tiles in place. I can hardly wait to try out that tub!
A custom seat to make showering more easy on replaced hips.
Bathroom vanity's are in place while the tops are being constructed.
New panel doors are throughout the house replacing outdated dark stained doors.
The Great room is much brighter now with lighter wall color and wood floors that should be sealed by the time of posting today. I am crossing my fingers that they will be back in their house within a few weeks. Looking out the Great room, one use to see a beautiful Glass Green House surrounded by a manicured garden.
The Floods damaged the glass Green House to the extend of removal. Money will be the factor in what will go here in the future. Imagine my parents surprise when they discovered this little garden popping up this summer!
By the time I saw this garden, it was starting to play out with the summer heat. Just look at the beauty surrounding an empty shell of a patio! My parents did NOT plant one single flower this spring as the flood arrived before their planned planting date. All these flowers came up voluntarily and put a smile on my parents face.
The Green House may be gone but there is LIFE AFTER THE FLOOD, In the Garden...
