Thursday

Hello everyone.  It has been a busy week here in Floyd.  David is gone to a conference in Vegas so Monday evening we went down to help Jess with the kids for a few days.  We also had some electrical work Hubby and I needed to do for her.  We finished most of it up on Tuesday.  Wednesday morning, Hubby put a dimmer switch on her lights in the living room.  We then left to come home. 

David is having a great time in Vegas.  He gave a speech the other night at the conference.   He said he spoke to about 22,ooo people.   Amazing.  We are all very proud of him. 

Today was school as usual.  We had planned on going over to the Horn’s this evening but Vicki is sick.  Please pray for her.  She thinks she has a stomach virus.  It has been very rough on her.  I called today at lunch and Quentin said she wasn’t any better yet.  She is never sick.  Hubby has been working on cutting out the material for our chairs.  I so appreciate all your advice on what color to paint them.  I still haven’t completely decided yet but I have a while before he will be at that stage.   I am thinking of going with the dark brown and putting chair cushions in them.  That way I can change them whenever I want and today I happened to think “Wow, I could make a tablecloth for  the table to match the cushions”  Maybe I’ll go that route. 

I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Chair

Here’s the chair Hubby has been working on.

I’m not too sure about the color though.  It was paint left over from Jessica’s bed so we thought we would use it on this prototype.  What color do you ladies think I should paint them.  I wanted to paint them red but I know it would look terrible in my dining room.   We have a large brick chimney in the room and our floors are mahogany.

Here’s a picture of the brick chimney.

The table I want to use the chairs with (until I talk him into building a new one).  Please let me know your ideas as I am not very good at decorating but I really would like to brighten it up some.

  Here is a picture of the color I think I would like.  I have always liked the idea of red chairs.  I’m not sure where this picture came from, maybe Lowes.com.   Well, while I’m at all this table and chair stuff, I might as well show you all the table I think I would like.  Notice all the ‘I think’. 

Table (3)

I got this picture from www.soulemama.com  I think it would look good in my dining room, don’t you all.  Well, it’s almost time to get ready for church.  Tonight’s menu is baked spaghetti, slaw, green beans, homemade rolls and dessert.  Dessert is unknown as Mrs. Sally said “I’ll bring some kind of dessert”.  I love surprises!  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

We have had a BEAUTIFUL day here in Floyd.  The temperature right now is 60 degrees!!!!!!!!!!!!  I absolutely love it.  The girls and I worked on cleaning the house this morning, then we started on school.  Hubby is working on a chair design for us.  He made our kitchen table several years ago and he made benches to go with it.  Well, you know how we women are, now I want chairs instead of benches. 

After he worked some on the chair, he decided to cut wood.  He went up on the hill and cut wood while we finished school.  Then we all worked together splitting the wood and stacking it.  It was a great day for outside work.  My menu plan for tonight has changed.  I had planned on meatloaf, fried potatoes and pinto beans but it is a little too late to do meatloaf.  Hubby said he would like hotdogs so we are having hotdogs and pintos.  Tomorrow we will have the meatloaf. 

I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Latest Wood Project

This is George’s lastest wood project.  It is just a prototype.  He doesn’t have the seat in yet but I think it looks very good.  Our oldest daughter and ourselves are in need of new chairs so he has been working on getting a pattern that he likes.    Not much happening here today.  The girls has a dentist appointment in Roanoke and we were gone most of the day.   We went to Michaels afterward, picked up a few things.  Then went to Lifeway Christian BookStore.   We  did a little grocery shopping and came home.  The temperature here has been a little chilly.  Lows about 50 to 52, highs in mid 60’s.  Nice weather.  Makes me start thinking fall and fall makes me think school.  We started Math yesterday.  I am trying a different approach this year.  I borrowed this idea from my friend.   I am going to add one subject a week  and by the end of September we will be in full school.  This way it won’t be school overload.   I’ll let you know how this works for us.  As you know what works for one family doesn’t always work for another but I think this will be a good plan for us.  I love homeschooling my girls.  We have such fun.  It’s a lot of work too but then most things worth doing require work.  Night has come and I am tired.  God Bless.
