So as you can see, three windows completely in! Aren’t they beautiful? The rest of the available light is coming from up here:

A window that Dad put in several years ago to improve the light in the Little House. Here’s another shot with the (I think lovely) ceiling:

I believe there are two camps when it comes to cleaning and clearing.

There’s the “I’m only going to clean for 15 minutes” idea which works for some, as it focuses the attention and releases one from attachment to the result or expectation of perfection.

And there is the “I will put away (or get rid of) 10 things” camp which works best for me, because it provides the same blessings mentioned above as well as a simple and definite goal. I don’t have to break my neck trying to vacuum the whole house in 15 minutes or ‘have the place spotless’ by the end of my cleaning. I have the satisfaction of knowing I removed 10 things that had been standing in the way (and it doesn’t matter which ten) and am 10 new open spaces closer to my goal of cleanliness.

Serenity can be attained regardless of your surroundings, as it is entirely reliant upon one’s attitude and willingness to be happy.

Blessings and peace,

Wow!! Let’s take a visit down memory lane, shall we?

Here is my intention for the space:

I’d like to create a peaceful space where Yoga can be practiced. I’d like it to be a beautiful non-distracting space with light, air, and cleanliness. This will be a space for serenity. So mote it be.

And here is the transformation process, photo by photo, beginning January 2, 2012.

Now this is far from complete, but see the transformation? See the beautiful change from dark to light? I am loving it and feeling more peaceful every time I look at it.

So I have more pictures! Yay!

They aren’t exactly new, but we’ve been taking a break since it began snowing, so these are still the latest progress. Enjoy them!

Now that the headers are fully built and nailed in, the spaces for the new windows have been sawed-out.
