Fall Chores

Somehow 'we' don't work as hard as 'we' USED to! G is behind this and loving every minute!

Friday night was girl's night.
G had to work early Saturday morning.
We girls got up and were drinking coffee when he got home.
He walked in with these and heard, in complete, spontaneous unison.....

Coat of Paint #4

I know what it is like to start a project like Mandy's and get a little frustrated part of the way through. We got the primer/paint on the entire kitchen only to find out it's too light. I chose antique white and it's not 'almond' enough. It, is, however better than the design we covered. Just a little blinding.

Gotta get another gallon and apply coat #4 of a more appropriate color.

Not sure if that's going to happen this weekend though. It's going to be WAY too nice not to go out for a drive and back to Amish country.

Just out of you all think it's going to be a more bright and colorful Fall this year than the two past years? I hope so.

The Baby is Here and My Dad's Come Home!

Jayden Daniel has been born!

First baby in our (my) family in 25 years. I can't wait to see his picture to see if his little face looks like his Dad, my nephew. Who said to me one day in the somewhat recent past, "I'm your son from another Mother". Because he and O.S. share the same first name and were born only 4 months apart. And his Mom and I are as close as two people can get.

And my Dad came home today!

How good can a person's life get?

I also JUST made the deadline to register for the Presidential election. October 6th was the last day to register and my registration was postmarked THAT day. Hope that counts when it gets to Columbus. You DO all realize that Ohio is a very pivotal state when it comes to the election, yes?

I just don't know if I could be any more thankful than I am right now.

More Good News!

I told you this was going to be a 'positive' blog.

I think my Dad will be coming home from the hospital this weekend. We should know for sure tomorrow. He will still have a bit of outpatient physical therapy, but we all expected that.

AND O.S. and his fiancee found a nice duplex about two streets over from us. The Military has been storing their belongings, which are to be delivered Friday afternoon (I think).

Have you ever felt so blessed you don't know if you deserve it? (I'd really like to know what Chros thinks about that thought. I've been feeling it alot lately)

First Full Weekend at Home

G put mini blinds on (6) windows and I hung curtains. This is the front door/entry way.

I LOVE Country Curtains. My Mom has them in her whole house. (Country Curtains is the actual name of the company). I think I have enough from the other house to do the back door and the den and office.

This is so fun!

Look What I Found!

I found this beautiful glassware in the basement. It's so much prettier than the pictures depict.
I can't wait to use it at Thanksgiving!
