Another Update

It is Tuesday evening and we are home for the night.  The project is getting closer and closer to being finished.  Yesterday, we hung all the walls.  Today we got everything mudded and tomorrow we will sand and texture the ceiling and then the drywall part will be done.  After that, we have a place in front of the sink to fix, possibly replacing the sink and sink cabinet.    Then the new floor will go down.  YEAH!

And now some pictures of SPRING!  Jessica’s temperatures are much warmer than ours.  Down where she lives, there are many signs of spring.  Her daffodils are just ready to bloom.   On the road down to her house, we see lots and lots of daffodils already blooming.  We are like kids in a candy shop, looking for them, trying to be the first one to spot them.

Dandelions are already starting to bloom.  I thought you all should know that while I’m there its not all work.  There are flowers to enjoy, warmer temperatures and, of course,  GRANDBABIES!  I have a blessed life. 

 Well, I better get busy.  I had hoped to catch up on what’s been happening in everyone else life but it is late and I still have much to get done.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

A Good Day

Yesterday was such a fun day.  Daniel and Sam spend the day with us.  We went riding in the “bumpy truck.”  When we came back Daniel told me “That SURE was a fun ride, MawMaw.”  I love it.  Children are so easy to please.  Just simple things make them so happy.

Wild strawberries we saw blooming on our ride.

PawPaw, of course, pointed out the deer trials.  It was a very nice day here yesterday, warm with lots of sunshine.  This allowed for lots of outside playing.  They saw the chicks, the new kitties, the baby calves and the goslings.  A full day in little boy world. 

We had a storm pass through last night with thunder,  lightning and lots of rain.  I’m not sure what the day will hold.  Right now it is cloudy and everything is soaked.   Maybe not a good day for hanging clothes on the line.   We’ll see.

This rosebush came up on its own at the fence line.  It has had a tough time getting started.  The cows keep wanting to eat it.  This year though it is huge and full of buds.  It has never bloomed before so we are excited to see what it looks like.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Lilac Bush

Our lilac bush has lots of buds on it. YEAH!  If all goes well, it will have lots of beautiful, sweet smelling flowers soon.  We have a small bush we just planted a few years ago at the edge of the garden and it is full of buds too.  I love spring.   I think our rain has stopped for a few days.  It is still very cloudy but the forecast is for the sun to come peeping through this afternoon.  It is already warmer than it was all day yesterday so that is a good sign.   We are hoping to do some more outside work after school.  We have been trying to start school a little earlier so that we can be finished around lunch.  Then we have the afternoon for work and play.  It seems to be working out well so far.

Yesterday, while the girls were at their piano lessons, I went into our local thrift store-Angels in the Attic.  It operates entirely on donations and volunteers.  All the profit each month is given to help local needs.  It is amazing.  They have moved 3 times because they keep growing.  The last time they moved, they purchased the building and in about 2 years had it paid off.   Since all workers are volunteer they have very little expense.  It has really helped our community.  The lady who thought it up is a Christian and tells everyone she can “It is all God”.  Anyway I said all that to say this.  Many years ago, my sister-in-law gave Hubby a coffee cup.  He loves this cup and uses it every morning.  Well, guess what I found.  One that looks just like it at Angels for 25 cents.  How exciting!  This morning I put my coffee in the new cup so that our cups matched.  Cute!  Ialso found this pretty glass.  I love old dishes and this glass just so wanted to come home with me. 

I better get busy.  It’s almost time for school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Spring will come!!

Easter lilies popping up!

Okay, so these pictures were taken at Jessica’s house and not mine, but aren’t they beautiful.  My easter lilies may be popping up, who knows,  they’re still buried under a foot of snow.  It is melting some and I’m glad.  The only thing about melting snow is it is no longer pretty, its just dirty and muddy.  Our trip was great.  We extended it longer than we had planned which suited me just fine.  The temperature there was in the lower 60’s on Sunday.  We grilled out and ate our meal at the picnic table.  Wonderful!  Things are taking shape at their new home.  They purchased a new bed over the weekend which means we get their old one-no more air mattress for us when we visit!  Hopefully we will get to visit more often now that spring is close.  Time for school.  Take care and God bless.
