I announced last week. We’re staying. We won’t be moving anytime soon.
We didn’t PLAN or plant a garden this year. In fact, the bed boxes in the front have been removed all but two of them. I have a suspicion with the rain we’ve had—this would have been a great year for some of the vine vegetables, squash, tomatoes , etc. We may still have time for some plants. I don’t feel like I have time for seedlings. I think we’ll visit the feed store in the morning and see what’s there, that we can plant in the last two boxes.
We DID order a new weed eater.
A Worx® it came today—and Honey and I tried it out a bit before the storms hit this evening.
We didn’t purchase new chickens. No meat chickens or layers.
I’m ready to finish painting the outside (finishing up what I started LONG AGO) I still have the paint; but need to purchase about 2 more gallons—should do that while the weather is mild—except for all the rain!
Before we refinanced—we were on the fast track (like a herd of turtles) for getting our house ready to sell. We’re going ahead with some of those projects. They need to be done.
- Painting each and every room—it needs it.
- We have plans to re-do the ceiling in the kitchen with beadboard panel and trim- resembling a cove ceiling. We’ll see how that plays out for sure. This is just a country farm house. Not sure ‘coved’ is the way to go in this setting. The ceiling definitely needs work; panel, paint and trim.
- Freshen up the livingroom—I’m almost finished with roll up shades (from drop cloths). Just one left to complete. Then I’ll add curtains; something floral maybe, and touch up some of the furniture, with paint, in that space; along with new paint on the walls. I may be eliminating some things,too. It sounds like a lot, I know.
I whipped up a few inspirations pages in my HOME Projects Journal--
I know there are computer programs that do this—but I didn’t take the time to learn any new programs. I find it eases my mind to snip and glue with real scissors and paper and glue—rather than a mouse and monitor. I’ve had this book for a long time; and enjoy adding to it over the years—its easy to cut and glue the old fashioned way.
Our most recent acquisition- the blue leather chair? It is my muse and inspiration for change. The CELERY green rug beneath it… my STINKY FREE CYCLE RUG ---is a nice complement to this NAVY blue chair.
I personally think sewing the roll-up shades was easy compared to the slip cover I need to make for my MAUVE RECLINER…(not pictured). I’m going to give it a shot.
That’s the short list. More than enough to keep us busy the next few months, wouldn’t you say? Now, I just need to decide where to start? Decisions, decisions.
‘Til next time,
Be a blessing, Bless the LORD, bless your home and all who enter.
