That's all good. We need to fill the wood barn back up. We still have huge pieces sitting outside we need to split as well.
The front porch furniture is making it's way back in place. This time, we have new, bright red cushions. I'm working on the decor as the weather changes, and bringing out the plant stands and hanging pots. I may even give the rockers and bench seat a new coat of paint.
Here is something new for the porch this year. I have some plans for this (and the porch set up), so I'll post as progress continues.
I don't really have a color pattern in my kitchen. It's an old set up, and three walls have paneling from the last owner. Those three walls are painted pale yellow. These cushions got approval from everyone but one (regarding the color choice I used).
I used Hot Blue, Hot Green, and yellow. All 100% cotton yarn. I have many more to make for this big family too. They are pretty easy to make, and I did not use a pattern.
I used a foam seat cushion insert, and crocheted the cushion cover, so it could be removed and washed. This way, I can also change colors easily, without buying new cushions.
I blame the color choice on this one simple cup coaster I crocheted. I just love the color combination. I have a vintage tablecloth with pale yellow flowers for one table, but not the larger table. I'm making decisions on that too.
We had a family moving night last night, and the movie was Jaws. A classic. However, Youngest Daughter, who insisted on the movie (and who has never seen it), did not join us. Her conversation on her ipod was more important than spending the evening with her family. That was disappointing and it showed Hubby that there needs to be a time limit on the internet (on all electronics). We'll see if a plan can be put into action.
A permanent plan, involving passwords to lock the wifi would be a start. A few girls have no self control when it comes to social media. Youngest has been attending a "church" youth group lately, but her morals and values (respect, etc.) have not changed for the better. They have been holding their "service" late and on school nights, causing her to miss homework time, preventing her chores to get done, and in my opinion, has heightened her irritability levels. I'm sure there are families dealing with overuse of social media, but they just ignore it or don't talk about it.
One kiddo is feeling poorly with a cold today. She's my "guinea pig" so to speak. I'm having her try some herbs (Bath Tea) in the bathtub. I'll be sharing that soon too.
