A good snapshot stops a moment from running away. ~Eudora Welty

A few pictures as promised:

The new bathroom tile (that's really stone)-- I really like the small size. If I could talk DH into it and we won the lottery, I'd have DH do the entire kitchen area in the same thing:

My office -- pretend there are bookcases on those scatter rugs:

Looking into my office from the "craft" area:

I'll be filling it with furniture and plants today (hopefully), so will have more pictures for you tomorrow (again, hopefully).

A picture of DD, Dd's friend whom we call The B-Man playing in the leaves:

And Dd being her usual graceful, feminine self on the floor of the office prior to de-and-reconstuction:


Swiped from Charity's blog:


I ran it on this blog and got the following:

The analysis indicates that the author of http://www.reading-writing.blogspot.com is of the type:

ESFP - The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

The end isn't true IRL...though I do tend to avoid conflict here. Actually, I've been in management positions before, with a measure of success. I don't particularly like bright colors, unless you count flowers :-)


Am I entertaining and friendly? You'll have to ask those who know me best!

See, it's beautiful!!! (Worth all the work and disruption, I'm sure) You're going to love it!

I think we might have that same stone in our shower...

Thanks for sharing your pictures. I love the tile in your bathroom and the hardwood floors are beautiful.

Dd is such a ham.

Yes, you are entertaining and friendly.

Have a good Tuesday.

I got the same exact result on my blog when I ran it through. I absolutely LOVE that stone. Bob's leaning toward the big tile in the kitchen and dining room...and since he's the one putting it down, I can't say that I blame him. lol

Diane Craver said...

Love the bathroom floors, btw!

You guys did a great job. I love stone floors. It gives a room so much more character.

Ref: DD
Mine like to sport a similar pose. Only with him it looks pornographic. Tank has no shame. lol.

Congrats on a job well done. It looks fantastic!

Oh, great job on the floors. They are lovely. Here's mine based on my blog.

I'm a ESTP - The Doers

The active and play-ful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.
