Wine Tasting

Karen and the Cedar Lake Ladies Auxiliary presented the first in a series of Wine Tasting Events. It was a hit with an attendance over 30 and many smiles around the room.

Office Improvement

Karen works from home. She wanted a nice office. We found someone to execute her vision, but it would not be completed this year. Here are the “build” photos.

Powder Room

The builder gave us a boring Antique White powder room, but Karen saw more. Months of gathering towels, window treatments, fixtures and some paint she has her dream.

2006 Accord

After months of living without a car since the Corvette went off lease, Karen was ready for a “get around town” vehicle. She loved her 1996 Accord and put hundreds of thousands of miles on it. It was no Corvette but she signed the paperwork and put another Honda in the garage.

Working Shirt

Still unpacking from the resettlement into “6” I had to still keep my job and that meant working on the weekend. My parents were up to help with the unpacking effort. I had to work but I decide to be appropriately attired for the event.
