Outside my window... It is cold, rainy and the wind is starting to pick back up. We had quite a storm last night, with snow, hail, rain, thunder & lightening and wind. What happened to Spring?!
I am thinking...We need to move, lol! :)
I am thankful for...Not losing power last night like I thought we would. A roof over our heads. Warm blankets to cover our bed. Loved ones to snuggle with.
From the learning rooms...We are in Weaver Vol. 5, chapter 7: The Master Storyteller.
We are reading about Florence Nightingale right now. It's pretty interesting. I mean, EVERYBODY knows who she was, but I never really knew about what she did, She was a very determined lady!
We watched The Hiding Place the end of last week. Wow. I can't imagine being as strong as Corrie Ten Boom was in all she endured.
Our last Bible lesson was on the salt covenant. We had a pretty good discussion on that. Very thought provoking.
From the kitchen...Coffee is ready. So nice on a dreary morning. :) About ready for my second cup. I'm thinking of some sort of soup for dinner. Something nice and hot to warm our insides.
I am wearing... P.j's, robe and slippers - which now have holes in both toes ... winter needs to go away! :)
I am creating...Well, I know last week I said I'd be shelving my family history....but I haven't. So still working on that and creating a new - updated - copy of what my Aunt has provided me. What she had compiled is old - I was still in high school - old. So there are alot of deaths not recorded and of course marriages and babies...so I am putsing on that in my "spare" time. lol.
I am going...To work on lots of laundry today and hopefully tackle our room. It's amazing how quickly our room deteriorates! But clothes need put away and the floor needs vacummed and nightstands need unburied....lol.
I am reading...Your Defiant Teen
The Wedding Dress with Sis for Lit.
I am hoping...That God opens doors for Good Ole Boy and a decent job.
I am hearing...The wind and the computer.
Around the house...Girls are all asleep, crashed in the living room due to the storm. Critters are all quiet so must be snuggling down with the girls. :)
One of my favorite things...How my husbands voice on the phone makes me feel all warm inside.
A few plans for the rest of the week:School, maybe youth group for Sis, work, track meet and practice, parent teacher conference for Einstein of we can make it, Good Friday Service, Easter celebration.
I don't have "after" pictures of this room because it's never been finished.
It was another room that was decent and our goal was to do bare minimum there until the rest of the house was done. :)
Here's what it originally looked like.
It's a decent sized room and has three windows.
It's right off the living room and the window there behind the door is on the front porch.
The walls were in excellent shape and the windows were good.
I scrubbed walls and ceiling (they must have been heavy smokers because the orange streaks were very thick on ceiling and walls! ALOT of scrubbing!), pitched the broken blinds and ripped out the yucky carpet.
Under the carpet was this nasty tile, that is tarred down so there is no removing it.
Now, the wall (and a small section of the ceiling) there between Good Ole Boy and the window has been removed for heat ducts to run upstairs to Sis's room. So there are repairs needed for that.
Here's Good Ole Boy and Hunny preparing to lay some "new" carpet.
This carpet is a dark hunter green, which goes good with the walls being a burgandyish color.
We've decided when we get to work here again, we want a similar wall color and will decorate in a rustic cabin style.
In the meantime, it's a functional room for us that was very easy to get ready for moving in.
Outside my window... The sun is shining. It's about 45' and very wet from the storm we had Sunday night.
I am thinking...I'm utterly exhausted. Physically, emotionally and mentally whipped. I hurt.
I really just want to crawl into bed and snuggle with Good Ole Boy and a movie - preferably a comedy.
(Today I had my second CT Scan. It was really rough. Four pokes. Three IV's. Four nurses attempting to get it going. Saline and Iodine spewed all over my new shirt and through my hair. HUGE bruises all over my arms. Not a pleasant experience)
I am thankful for... My family.
From the learning rooms...We are coming back from break (but haven't gotten started yet).
We will be starting Weaver vol. 5, chapter 7 - The Master Storyteller.
From the kitchen... I'm working on dinner, bacon, eggs & toast.
I am wearing... A pink camo International Harvester ball cap and black long sleeve t-shirt hoodie (both gifts from Good Ole Boy), pj pants and socks.
I am creating... Lots of laundry by going through all those boxes that have been in Hunny's room! lol.
I am going...
I am reading... Your Defiant Teen - still working on step 1.
Glorious Appearing by Tim LaHaye
The Chimney Sweep's Ransom by Dave & Neta Jackson will be started tomorrow for school.
Six Hours One Friday with Sis for lit.
I am hoping... God provides a better job for Good Ole Boy.
I am hearing...Bug's new baby goat crying.
Around the house... Otherwise quiet. Been working in Hunny's room and have most of it emptied out. Yay! lol. Our donate pile has grown considerably as has our garbage pile.
Anxious to get that complete so we can rip out her walls.
I also have scrubbed the shelves on the right side of the kitchen sink and cleaned about half of that counter.
One of my favorite things... Laughing with my family.
A few plans for the rest of the week: School, maybe youth group for Sis?, work, maybe softball for Bug? (have to double check on that since the school they practice at is on Spring Break), Fireproof group, track practice for Sis, 4H fun shoot, church.
