I wanted to share with you all my lastest yard sale find.  I love these old books.

Grace had a mishap with her glasses and we had to go get them repaired yesterday.  A startled chicken flew up from the roost and hit her glasses.  It messed up her nose piece.  On the way to Wal-Mart I noticed a yard sale sign.  Well you know, it is so hard to pass up yard sales.  I am so glad I stopped.   I got these books for 10 cents a piece.

I just love the pictures and the stories in these old readers.  I have several of them.  Look, they even have a dictionary in the back.

I know my girls are way past these books but I still love them.

A picture just for fun.  This little lady seems to be an escape artist.  She manages to get out of the fence almost every evening.  We looked out the window the other day and she was sitting here on the bench just resting.  All our animals seem to love this bench.

Well, I better go.  Our VBS starts tonight.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

 

Update on Facelift

Hello ladies.  Just a quick update on our progress so far.  Here is a picture of the ceiling just as we were beginning to tear it all down.

After tearing down all the ceiling this is what it looked like.  We now have 10 recessed lights in the ceiling but I didn’t get any pictures of that.  We came home late this evening to feed up all the animals.  We’ll be leaving early in the morning to go back and work some more.  Tomorrow we hope to get the lights finished and start hanging the sheet rock.  We also will be tearing up the old floor and putting down a new laminate flooring.  We will have to do some leveling of the floor first though.

Her new stove was delivered today.  She is so happy with it.  Her old stove was just a stove top with the oven built into the wall,  probably an early 70’s model.  If you look in the background you will see the old oven.   This will be coming out and Hubby will be building her a pantry to take it’s place.  They also plan on painting the cabinets.   

Well, that’s all for tonight.  I hope to get caught up on everyone’s  blogs tonight but I’m not sure.  I’m pretty tired.  Please be in prayer for David.  He had surgery on his knee back in January and it still hurts him quite a lot.  It definitely is not healing as fast as we all thought it would. 

Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Bigger Now

My, what a difference a few months can make.  Jasper was about 8 weeks old in this picture.  The other one was taken this morning.  I think he’s grown some, don’t you all?  He is drying off from a bath, waiting on the girls to break for lunch so he can play with them.  I am not sure how this happened.  I’ve never cared for animals in the house.  We now have 2 full time cats inside and 1 part time dog.  100_2952

I used to be so strong.  Oh well, it’s not too bad.  The girls really enjoy them being in.  Cold here today.  The wind is blowing pretty hard.  The fire went out last night and when I tried to build a new fire this morning, the smoke was terrible.  I eventually just took the wood out of the stove and left it alone.  I would rather be a little cool than have to deal with all that smoke.  We have the gas logs on so its not too cold.  Hopefully, we will do bible study tomorrow.  I am very excited to begin this study.  Esther is such an exciting book to study and I’m sure Beth Moore will bring out things I would never think about.  We are hopefully going down to Jessica’s this weekend.  I want to do some girl stuff.  The town she lives in has an excellent Goodwill Store.  I love shopping at Goodwill!  I guess I just love thrift store shopping in general, yard sales, consignment sales, etc.  Good deals at good prices.  Well, lunch break is over.  Time for school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
