Yes, we have finished our stairs! Nice! Chrissy is thrilled with everything! She said she has never had such a stunning house before! I am happy too! We have done the majority of the work by ourselves, so it is very rewarding! Plus, saved us a lot of money! I would never be able to pay someone else to do all of this work. Too expensive.
Our next step is to tile the entrance area. You can see the black slate in the picture. We must put a sub floor under the slate then and mortar them down.
Enjoy the picture !
Bye for now.

First, I hope all of you are doing well! Enjoying the summer and doing your best to create things you want in your lives. Self creation. Take your idea, or goal and make a plan to achieve it. With hard work, patience, determination, focus, toughness, and balance. We can all achieve our goals and dreams. Balance has been a tough point for me lately. Work ,and work on our house has been my focus. I have really run my self to the point of being too tired! So I am to the point of asking for help in our house renewal. We are going to ask Chrissy's dad to pantry roll outs for the pantry's beside the fridge, My brother, and my friend Doug to help finish the hard wood floor in our bed rooms. I will have a big party for all that have helped us!
As for the goals you have in Ski racing. Now is the time to build your body's in the strength and power department. Which in turn will build your self confidence! For those of you that would like to improve from your past results anyway. Improving in technique will help you but even to be able to use the proper technique you need to be strong. Strong legs to power the ski and hold a tight fast line, a strong stomach and back to maintain your balance and stay low over the front of the skis, and strong upper body for powerful starts and hold your arms up through out the full length of the course. I look forward to watching all of you hit new personal bests in your performances, this up coming season.
Bye for now.

Sorry for the long delay between Blogs! We have been working every day. I am getting a little tired of it all. It is coming to a end finally. The challenges of doing all the work ourselves. Well, family and friends have helped. This past weekend, my brother, his wife, Chrissy and her dad helped install the hard wood floor. The main living area is done. We still have the stairs and bed rooms to do. We are using the upstairs kitchen again. I am still waiting for some parts for my island cabinet doors. Once I get those I will update the kitchen pictures. Chrissy is so happy, she cried the first time she saw it! She is very proud of me and my effort.
I hope all of you are enjoying your summer! Also doing your best to stay healthy by eating good foods and exercising your body's! And have a strong and good self image of yourself!
Bye for now my friends
