Pam asked if I keep the door to downstairs closed. Most of the time I do keep the door closed especially when I'm upstairs just to limit where Gibbs can go. Pam also asked if I was changing things out or having to paint too. Right now I'm just changing out but I do need to paint. The problem is I hate to paint so I'm kind of putting that off as long as I can.
Ginny asked if that was a working fireplace or electric. It is an electric fireplace and pretty much it's just for show because I really don't use it for the heat or the flames. Ginny also mentioned that Gibbs looks like he's wearing a fancy diaper. The answer there is yes he is. I have had the worst trouble with him and if he doesn't wear that there is no telling when he will lift his leg on something. It doesn't matter how close I watch him or how often I let him out. This is just the easiest solution to the problem
Finally Catherine asked what was up those stairs. At the top of the steps is the bathroom and then three bedrooms. Maybe someday I'll show pictures up there but for now I'm really not liking how those rooms look
The other question was on the flowers post
Several of you thought that these were lupines but they are Red Hot Pokers
