I am feeling much better these past couple of days. Here's what's happening in Grover Land lately.
We are having the exterior of the house painted. The last thing on our list of things to do to the house for a while. In hind sight, I should have had the windows installed the very last thing! The windows were put in, and then professionally cleaned, and they were so sparkling and pretty. Then we had the new roof done and they were awful!! I washed them, and they were nice again. Now the house is being painted. They started yesterday with power washing the whole outside of the house. Guess what the windows look like again?
So we are keeping busy in the house today. Noah has done his chores.
We changed all the batteries in the big toy trucks.
I have spent the past several weeks looking for a new comforter for our bed. FINALLY found one I loved. At Kohl's. It is CHAPS, and was more than I wanted to pay, but I waited for a sale, and then I had one of those 30% off coupons come to me in the mail, so I got it for a great price. It was reduced 65%! I LOVE the colors. They are the same as I had before, really, keeping with the brick reds and warm yellow-golds. But it has a pretty splash of blue in it. So I am looking for fabric to make a couple pillows to go on the bed. I love the coordinating bed skirt in that greenish grey plaid. It sort of neutralizes the feminine floral having the reversible plaid turned down at the top end. It is also very thick and has seams sewn down the blanket to keep it stable and in good shape the way I like it. You sure get what you pay for. A bed in a bag is great for a bed that doesn't get much use, but not for one where your four legged Wheatie likes to come running at full speed to jump onto, and 3 grand kids like to hop up onto to see themselves in the mirror, and all of that jazz.
I have been harvesting more yellow squash and zucchini than I know what to do with. All of the neighbors and kids have had deliveries, and we have had it grilled, steamed, and in a casserole tonight. And there is no end in sight for it. I must pick about 10 good sized squash a day.
So there you have it.......all of our messes, and our achy breaky bodies too. Last weekend when I was feeling so blue, Mr. G said to me, "remember Bunny, if He leads us to it, He'll lead us through it." So I leave you with that optimism.
