Grace and Sam

Grace and Sam are pretty big buddies.  She is usually his watcher and Julie has Daniel.  As you can see, Sam must be barricaded away from the construction zone.  He is just a little bit too much help.

He looks a little sad, don’t he?

The electrical is all done and the ceiling is hung.  Monday we will hang the walls and start putting the mud on (hopefully).  After that, the new floor goes down.   Hubby will be building her a pantry to go beside her new stove.

The boys were very happy when they were allowed inside the construction zone to help.  They worked very hard pulling up the old tile.  Daniel would pull it up with his special tool and Sam would carry it to the trash.  Very good helpers.

Temperatures here are very cold.  Wind gusts of about 40 mph with an actual temperature of 13 degrees, putting the wind chill below zero.  Our wood stove has been working hard keeping us nice and warm inside though.  I hope you all have a great weekend and stay warm.  God bless.

We’re Back

This is our progress so far.   It has been a pretty big job.  We finished grouting the tile today.  I think it looks really good.  I really like the  color she chose for the walls.    I think I like the bigger tile too.   David will seal the grout, put on the base trim and get her washer and dryer back in the room.  She is wanting to put lots of shelves in and also they are going to purchase a freezer to go in the room.  I’ll take more pictures when all this is done.

We had a really nice time Sunday with our revival getting started.  The pastor’s messages were really good.  Sunday mornings message was about being cleansed and Sunday evening was about getting a touch from God.  We left Monday morning to go back down to Jessica’s.  She’s such a slave driver, you know.

My next post will have birthday party pictures, however I could not resist showing you these two today.

Ain’t he cute when he’s sleeping?  He has an absolutely beautiful smile and smiles a lot.  He is a very happy and content little boy.

This is a picture of pure love.  I don’t think I have ever seen a little boy love his dog more than Daniel loves his “Buddy” or vice versa.  They spend hours outside doing this very thing, just rolling and playing together. 

Well, I think I’ll rest for a while.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Still No Pictures

Well, we came back home yesterday evening and I did remember to bring the camera.  The problem is the camera card is in Jessica’s pocket book.  So still no pictures.  Anyway, we have got a lot done.  All the walls and ceiling is finished.  Dave and Jess are painting it this weekend while we are home.  She decided to paint the room a light blue, the official name is icy blue.  It sounds really pretty.  We are staying here until Monday morning then going back down to work some more.  We will be coming back home Tuesday evening as Hubby has some work coming up this week.  He still has to lay the tile on the floor and do some more to the electrical.  We will be starting our revival at church tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to hearing the preacher who is bringing the message.  I have never heard him before but others that have say he does a really good job. The youth from his church will be doing the music.  We will be having a fellowship meal tomorrow following the service (of course), you know we gotta eat.  I think I will take potato soup and salisbury steak with gravy.  I’m not sure if I’ll have time to make a dessert or not but there usually is an abundance of desserts.

Temperatures here are cool-mid 50’s.  It has been raining most of the day.  It is also pretty foggy.  I think it will be a nice sleeping night.  I just made some blueberry muffins and they are ready to eat.  I think I’ll see if they are good.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Unexpected Repairs

Water can do a lot  of damage.  This is what Dave found when he discovered a water leak behind the wall where his breaker box is.  Lots of damage.  Obviously this had been leaking for quite a while.

We went down on Tuesday evening as soon as we got the distress call.

 Hubby and Dave fixed the leak yesterday and went to Lowes to get materials. They are tearing out the floor today and beginning repairs.  Jess and I came back to Floyd to do some of her laundry as this leak occurred in her laundry room.  The plan is to put new sheetrock on the walls and ceiling, also they are putting down tile on the floor.  All the old must come up before any of the new can go down.  They think they will also have to replace the floor joists too and level up the floor.  Lots of work.   I have been really blessed to have a man who knows how to fix all this.

Lots to get done so enjoy your day and God bless.

Craft pictures

I thought some of you might be wondering about the name of my blog.  I have a small business that I run  out of my home.  I make aprons, lap quilts, crochet dishcloths, afgans, and prayer shawls.  I have made enough  to buy the school books for this year.   I think that’s pretty good.  I have about 50 dishcloths made up to sell but I only have 3 aprons left.  As soon as Hubby gets to repair sewing machine I have to get busy with more aprons and lap quilts.  I enjoyed my long weekend with Jess and family.  We got a lot done.  George and Dave laid the tile on the bathroom floor and Jess and I painted her craft room.  She chose a bright yellow and she is thinking about going with bright red curtains and accessories.  I think it will be gorgeous.  I love yellow walls.  It makes the entire room so cheerful.  I also got lots of MawMaw hugs and a few kisses.  He’s stingy with his kisses.  Jasper (our puppy) had lots of play time with his brother, Buddy ( Daniel’s puppy).  It’s getting time to cook supper so I guess I’ll have to come up with some ideas.  Tomorrow I think I might try to can our beets.  I’ll post pictures if I do.  God Bless.
