The weekend was a long work weekend. The walls in the living room are completely painted, the trim is almost done (we literally ran out of steam and time on Sunday), and the gas heater line goes in this week.The walls are a light gray, and the floor trim is not getting painted to match the windows.
We put grave pillows on Mom and Dad's graves. We picked up salt for the water softener, and I could not believe how high the price is right now.
My husband was called away for several hours, so that put us behind in painting the floor trim. A nephew is having electrical issues, and he went to help. However, for the family's safety, he plans to go back and re-wire their house.
It doesn't even feel like Christmas here. We've already told our broke kids to not buy us anything for Christmas. Once the house is in order (could be late January at this rate), we will have them over for a meal.
39/28°F, and we dip down to the 20's this weekend.
As I look outside my window . . .
It's the same gloomy skies.
Right now I am . . .
Making another pot of coffee, getting ready to fry some eggs. I'm thinking egg/cheese/bacon breakfast sandwiches.
Thinking and pondering . . .
Wondering when we'll finally get done with the living room ha ha!
How I am feeling . . .
A bit frustrated. The hardware store sold our flooring, but no matching transition pieces. We had to order it online, and that puts us, once again behind.
Listening too. . .
On the breakfast plate. . .
Ezekiel bread with peanut butter, coffee.
What I am wearing . . .
Painting clothes for now.
On the reading pile . . .
Nothing. It's halted for now.
On the TV . . .
Whatever we find on regular TV.
On the menu . . .
For once, I have no idea. Possibly thawing some fish.
Looking around the house . . .
The same - hot mess.
On the to-do list . . .
-make a breakfast
From the camera . . .
When we drove to the cemeteries, a passing truck threw a rock up and cracked our windshield. One more thing to repair now. It's about a 5 inch circle. We are thankful it did not go all the way thru, as it would have hit me most likely.
What I am creating . . .
I started the blanket order. I am just waiting on one more yarn order.
Devotional, Bible Verse. . .
I literally can't get into my books, and I cannot wait until everything is back in it's place. Prayers for my friend Dean, whose mother fell and broke her hip. She has had surgery, so prayers for a quick and healthy recovery.
