happy Monday...

just wanted to thank you this morning for all your prayers for Courtney...
its going to be a tough healing up and taking care of 3 little ones...

but with God's help and healing...
it will all be over soon...

these images are from our Saturday drive...
it was so sunny and I soaked up as much as I could hold...

yesterday the clouds were back and we didn't know what we would end up with...
but the snow didn't happen, came as rain...

I hope its over and passed us by...
but it is colder and could be slick out this morning...

the weekend was a good one...
kept up with the cleaning and the laundry...

nothing exciting and no crafting yet...
but I will take being able to keep up...

threw some pork chops in the roaster with carrots, potatoes, a box of stuffing and 2 packs of brown gravy mix and let it slow cook all day long...

it smelled so good in here and it was a really great supper with lots of left overs...
yes- that is an old caboose...
in the middle of no where, not even close to an old set of tracks...
many years ago a house stood out front, but gone now...
and the yard was so awesome and in the back was this caboose...
all nice and pretty...
no decaying and the property turned into storage...

getting a gallon of black paint to start the kitchen this coming weekend...
that's going on the island...
small enough project...

and then I will paint the walls a lavender...
a deep, rich lavender to the pink...
after all of that, I will start on the rest of the cabinets in here...
they are going off white...

I am so ready for a change...
its been like this for 20 years...
oak cabinets, which I hate with a passion...
but DH loves them with just as much passion...
so, I let it go...
but now, its my turn...
;0)

and if he says anything close to...
"we should have done this years ago"...
I'm boxing his ears...
pinky promise...
;0)

Hi Tete, you will love the cabinets painted. I did mine in off white with a black island and it made an incredible difference. Have fun and enjoy the process. It will be so worth it
