It’s been a long time….

September 22, 2007

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted!  So much has happened in that time.

We bought a house back in April.  We painted every single wall at least 3 times (1 primer and 2 top coats).  We had our floors refinished (oak throughout the whole house with parquet in the kitchen/dining room).  We had some brazilian cherry put down in a family room.  This is the 4th morning we have woke up here!  I can’t believe we made it finally.  There are still plenty of things to be done, but we are working through them.

In knitting, I got my invitation to Ravelry.  I was shocked, to say the least.  It is so overwhelming for me.  There are so many things to look at. 

Mr. BrooklynTweed made a knitted lap blanket called the Hemlock Blanket.  Yes, I’ve been sucked into that KAL.  I started it last night.  I worked about 2.5 – 3 hours and I’ve finished row 22.  I’m pleased with the way the center looks.  Even the 15 yo daughter likes this blanket.

Our church is getting ready to present a drama called “Death’s Door”.  They did 3 performances last year and about 250 people gave their lives to Jesus.  Four performances are planned for this year.  I’m hoping more people come to Jesus!

I need to go and clean some dust off the DirecTv receivers.  That’s being connected today.  DH and his nephew are going to pick up my grandmother’s bedroom suite.  The 15 yo will be using this in her room.  The 13 yo son is using the iron bed that was my mother’s when she was growing up.  I’m trying to use those special family pieces!

God bless you!
