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.

A Nice Surprise

100_5089

Last night during our fellowship meal, one of the ladies told me she had something for me out in her car.  She had gotten me this beautiful material.  She found it a Wal-Mart.  Our Wal-Mart does not sell material but they had this on clearance, probably from another store.  Each bolt has 5 yards of material on it.   Lots of aprons!   Sometimes God amazes me,  the way He leads us to encourage each other.  I was feeling a little down about messing up the other material and then He surprises me through a generous friend.  God is good.  

Temperatures here have changed drastically from yesterday.  Mid 20’s with lots and lots of cloud coverage.  We are not getting any snow yet but it definitely feels like snow.  

Time for school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

A Mountain of Rolls

One of the things I am taking tomorrow for our thanksgiving meal at church will be these rolls.  I froze them ahead of time and have been baking them all day today.  The one difference I have noticed is that the frozen dough did not rise as much as it would if it had not been frozen.  They taste the same though and I guess thats what counts.  I am also making cinnamon rolls to take.  Not sure what else yet.  After our meal, the youth of our church will go shopping.  Every year they get two  ”angels” from the angel tree.  A boy and a girl.  Each family in the church contributes $5.00.  Then the youth go shopping.  They boys buy for the boy and the girls buy for the girl.  It is a very nice tradition.  Our youth really look forward to going.   One year, they were shopping and picked out something they wanted to buy and they were a little short on the  money needed to buy it.  One of the boys said he had some extra from a job he had done that week.  He gave the extra so they could purchase the item.  I love that.   Children being raised to give generously and without expecting anything in return. 

Yesterday I had a WONDERFUL surprise.  Jessica and Sam came up for a visit.  I did not know they were coming.  They just walked in the door.  I was so happy.  Daniel and David were at home.  She stayed until after lunch.  The bible study ladies had not gotten to see Sam yet.  It was a great surprise.  Have I mentioned I love happy surprises?

Beautiful day here in Floyd.  Very nice temperatures with lots of sunshine.  A great day for being outside.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Progress

Here’s our progress so far.  The outside is finished except for the siding.  Hubby calls this “dried in”.  Anyway we are glad we got this far yesterday as it is raining today.  We will be working on the inside of the room today.  I think we will be moving some of the plumbing over  and putting up the insulation.  Maybe even working on some of the electrical. 

Sunday was Pastor Appreciation Day at our church.  We had a potluck dinner (of course).  We take advantage of every chance we have to eat!  It was a nice day.  We didn’t have Sunday night study as we were there so late for the dinner.    Sunday evening we went down to Jessica’s for a surprise visit.  They did not know we were coming.  Hubby needed the little window that you see in the picture of the room.  There is a place near Jess that sells used windows at a good price so we went down to get the window.  We spent the night with Jess then went and got the window Monday morning and heading back home.  It was a good visit.  She was so surprised when she came to the door and saw us standing there.  I love surprises!

Well, I guess I better get busy.  Hubby is ready to work.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
