Welcome to the last full week of August! Can you believe that we are in the dog days of Summer? Wow the time goes by fast the older I get! I hope you all are having a great week and that your weekend was fabulous!
Friday was the funeral for our friend Duane. It was bittersweet as we know he is in Heaven and has received his reward and yet we miss him. We miss his smile and his laugh. It was nice to hear some of the funny stories from his co-workers. That is a part of him we didn't get to see, him at work. His wife gave a beautiful tribute to her Husband. What an example she was standing there talking about her love. When she got up, there was not a dry eye in the building. How she managed to stand there without falling apart still amazes me. She did cry a little, but composed herself and went on. What a strong, remarkable Christian woman she is!
Saturday the plans were to do a painting project. A big project but Becke, the wonder dog had other plans and got sick all over the living room! And by all over the living room, I mean a total of 8 spots of really huge...well you know! So the entire carpet had to be cleaned. That took a while so instead I painted our small island. Thanks to Tammy from Country Girl at Home I found the same paint and glaze that she used on her large loft project and painted the island instead. I took everything out to the back deck including a fan and went to work. Here are the photos:
During with the fan going and Becke looking on safe inside.
Back in the kitchen.
What do you think? I like the Darker red and it goes with the rugs and floor as well. Thank you Tammy for sharing your ideas with all of us.
Sunday was quiet, watch the dog for any further problems, which happily there were none. So she started on boiled hamburger and rice, watch the grand girls and go to church.
My personal challenge is plugging along and I am up to a total of 1930 miles with only 470 to go. So how was your weekend? Do you have plans for this last full week of August.
