As you may have noticed, I've updated the lay-out for Thanksgiving. I always say I'm going to do this seasonally so we'll just see about that when it's Christmas time! I'm wondering if my scripture at the top is making it look like I'm not posting? I'm leaving it there anyway 'cause I like it! And check out my new pic, that's right folks, it's me wearing my Dem Donkey Dress courtesy of my grandma. I figure it's a nice nod to the president-elect. Scroll down for our first Thanksgiving. Glory days, yeah they'll pass you by.
We have closed on our new old house and now we turn to decorating. I think I have my plan all settled but money and time will dictate the process. Actually, my new blog colors reflect our first project-the living room. The back ground color is pretty close to the wall color I've chosen. I'll take some pics as we go along, hopefully finishing next weekend. We're starting with this room because it's the least expensive/least amount of work. We might tackle the bathroom next for the same reasons. Most of our plans require little more than some spackle (that's a word, right? spellcheck keeps highlighting it.) and paint. The family room/kitchen will be the biggest undertaking as it is trapped in the past, the distant past. Dark paneling on the walls, dark cabinets, blue carpeting. We're saving to have hard wood floors put in so that's a project for further down the road.
Once we've finished the living room and hopefully the bathroom, it'll be time to swing into Christmas with decorations and going back to the old old house to gather up the tree and ornaments. This will be our first Christmas with a fireplace upon which to hang our stockings so I'm thinking Santa will be particularly pleased with us. I hope he gives us gift certificates to Lowe's and Home Depot!
Meanwhile, here's a pic of the Mr. with Paul Bunyan taken on our anniversary trip. You might remember his photo op with the Holy Family a few years back. He's connected like that.
Numbers 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
