Installed a New Skylight!

This weekend, we hired a contractor to "let there be light" in our 2nd floor bathroom. The 2nd floor bathroom has a slanted ceiling that follows the roof and there's no window in it. The bathroom opens directly to the stairway that goes downstairs, and it has always been dark. SO, Tom found a great skylight on-line and ordered it.. This weekend, our contractor installed it, and it totally changed the appearance of the stairway, the bathroom and even shines light down into our living room. Here are some pictures from the installation.

Even in the late afternoon the skylight lights up the staircase!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
