In the throes of "redo" and gosh, is it hot. I painted second coats this morning on the bookcases by the fireplace and also the trim around the patio door. The trim around the door had been nicked so many times with dog crates and etc., it had to be sanded before I could paint and even with the ac on 70, I was sweating bullets. Not use to this manual labor.
This is what we ran into when painting above the fireplace. We had a new roof put on this spring and the roofers said it looked like there was rain damage around the chimney. Wha la, we found it today.
One more little thing to make us further behind. Guess it's better to find it now before it gets any worse.
Can you believe this little bittie fireplace mantle. We fuss every year at Christmas when we try to decorate it. So, Hubs is enlarging it about about double in space. At the width it is right now, I have double sided tape on my mantle clock and just pray that it stays anchored there with every ding of the clock.
Wish you all a happy week and pray it won't be too hot. I try to remember this is summer, but wow!
Our granddaughter, Sarah, and husband Jon, who is in Irag are expecting triplets. We are so excited. We don't know the genders as yet but will find out soon. We do know there is a set of identicals and a single. Hubs and I had identical girls. Hub's Mother as well as mine, were both twins, so they do run in our family, however, this is the first for triplets.
Thanks so much for the girl trying to broadside me today when I had a green arrow to turn left, scared the b whatever out of me.
Thanks to the teenagers in the neighborhood who are still shooting fireworks after dark every night. Our golden retriever is terrified and has torn the gate of the dog yard completely out of the concrete wall.
Thanks to the weathermen who love to make us miss what few decent tv shows we have to watch in the summer, by broadcasting thunderstorms in Kansas and timbucktwo which aren't even in our viewing area. I know that this is tornado alley but I'm just saying!
Thanks to BP for finally getting the oil leak in the gulf capped today after some 84 days. Let's all pray it just holds and those poor souls in south Louisiana and the coast get their lives back.
In the meantime, I wish for all of you a great Friday and a fun filled weekend.
Once again, thanks so much for stopping by and if you leave a comment, thank you thank you.
A major up do is in progress. Carpet is coming up all over the house and hard wood floors are being installed. Debra has begun the painting since the house needs to be painted before Sil installs the floors. I am going to start helping with the painting tomorrow so, I think blogging will be scarce for awhile.
Sorry I am so late in joining in with my yellows. Better late than never, right!
I had to do grocery shopping today and yes, lemons and bananas were on my list. This sweet tiny cup and saucer was either my FIL's or my husband's grandmother. Anyway, it is awfully old. I forgot I had it, but found it on top of the china cabinet the other day.
I love bright little spots of yellow around the house. This is on the corner of my spice rack.
My biscotti jar along with other little yellow tidbits.
