Bits and Pieces Through My Back Door

Good evening you all and welcome Through My Back Door. The coffee is on (DD) and there are some cinnamon rolls to go with them. It is so cold out to night and drizzling rain, so hurry in, sit by the fireplace and lets chat. There is no place like home when it is cold outside. Today Carol and I went to Clinton and hit the shops. I didn't buy anything, but she did. She treated me to lunch and we had a good visit.

I will share a few room shots of the house now. I have done a bit of changing.
It won't be long until I can sit outside. I am looking forward to those days.
I have spent a lot of time at Debs lately as Beth has been home. We all have so much fun and will be glad when Ryan's residency is finished so they can move back.
There is just not much going on but I am so glad you came to share bits and pieces Through My Back Door where life is good.
