Life's been kinda busy and a big mess but I guess that's to be expected when you
start home projects. For us; our little remodeling has snowballed from project to project.
It seems with this old farmhouse once we tear into something the next layer has something
else rotted that needs to be fixed. Just how it goes.
We just keep telling ourselves every day we're one day closer.
The floor is all fixed under the bath tub now and new drywall up behind it...
Myguy is still muddin though... Hopefully we can get the bed and dressers etc moved out and carpet all ripped out in time for the carpet layers.
Meanwhile we've been trying to decide on big mirrors and which medicine cabinet and
cupboards to go above our washer n dryer ...- all that jazz. Almost forgot but we tore
all the shelves out of the linen closet in our bathroom too when the tub was out.
Have I said yet that it's a fine mess around here? ha
Least there's a garden of flowers and flutterflys to visit
amid the mess.
It helps the sanity.
Hopefully it won't take too long coz I'll be having withdrawals not havin
the babybear out for playdays.
As it is right now her room is full of junk and it's gonna get worse by this weekend
needing a place to put the rest of our bedroom furniture.
A few simple joys this week ...
---fixing tabs in my Gram's bible.
Holding this tab in my fingers I wondered:
Could my Grandmother
ever have imagined .. one day her Leaonie
would feel propelled to hold her Catholic bible and reattach the tabs that were
yellowed and falling apart.
I so wonder?
I know she prayed for me alot.
(Don't pay no mind to my fingernails... you can probably
guess I'm not the go get a mani-pedi kinda gal. --Never had one and
don't plan to start now.
I am a tabs gal though. :)
And these needed some love.
I tried different glues... but nothing I tried would stick.
So I ended up cutting small pieces of packing tape.
Got them all fixed up and have decided to shelve the bible I've been using awhile and camp out in Gram's here instead.
And I finally got around to tabbing my she reads truth bible as well.
I got these tabs off Etsy. The shop is called farm girl journals in case anyone tries to look them up.
And this is my August planner.
See; I wasn't kiddin about the tabs.
Let's see... other simple joys...
the song by the Afters : I will fear no more
I've shared here that I've battled with not being
able to turn my head off at night.
My sleep gets robbed...and...
I feel like someone wrote that song just for me.
And here is another simple joy.
A beautiful moth that I'll get to share with Blakelea
because I video'd it for her. Another thing to add to our
list of cool things God made.
And one more...
a really good movie I saw on the Formed app..
St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Alright that's enough for tonight.
Sweet dreams yall!
