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.

Having Fun

Good morning, ladies!  We had a great visit yesterday with David, Jess, and the kids.   It was a nice warm day and as you can see, most of it was spent outside.  If you look on the ground you can see where Daniel’s boots are.  I guess they got in the way of swinging.

Sam and Katie.  Sam had so much fun sitting with Katie and taking pictures.  Every time the we would take a picture, he would just bust out laughing.  So of course, we took MANY pictures.  I thought this one was the best. 

David helped Hubby fix the brakes on the car yesterday.  It was a full day’s job but we think they are finally fixed.  Thank’s again Dave for helping.  Jess and I worked inside on making her some applebutter.  She ended up with 5 qts.  We had spaghetti with homemade sauce, rolls and cinnamon rolls for dessert.  Daniel told me spaghetti was his favorite.  I made a new recipe for cinnamon rolls and I really liked this recipe.  Much better than the one I had been using.  I got the recipe here.  http://homejoys.blogspot.com/2011/02/sweet-dough.html  I also posted the recipe under sweet dough in my recipe file.  I did divide the recipe in half and got 18 cinnamon rolls.    I will  definitely be making them again.  We are planning on starting a  remodel at Jessica’s on Monday.  Her kitchen is getting a facelift.  I hope to remember to take the camera and I’ll show pictures of the process. 

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