@Leeza thanks for asking. Anytime we get Becky's input I love it!


After waiting all through the pandemic for my ace carpenter, he finally admitted he can't work for us anymore, due to illness. Very sad for him and us. But it made me find other folks to work on the many projects we'd been delaying. We just got a new roof and are getting bids for exterior painting to coordinate with the new shingles. (Went from gray/green to tan.) Had the roofer add a couple of skylights to brighten our large, dark porch. Replaced a screened porch door that I've hated for almost a dozen years. Took out a mishmash of workbench/storage in the garage and ordered IKEA Sextion kitchen cabinets, which are being installed as I type. Constructed a floor to ceiling cat "tree," although my two are not yet favoring it.


I'm also in the middle of some major landscape changes due to removing a mature, declining sycamore tree last summer. I've put plants in place (bromeliads), but they may have to be moved when the blazing Florida heat arrives this summer.

Hey there, Becky! In 2023, my home goal is all about decluttering and creating a cozy reading nook. It's incredible how much stuff can accumulate over the years! Plus, with a comfy chair and good lighting, I hope to dive into more books. That would be one of mytop experiences as an introvert. What about you? Are there any exciting home goals for the year?
