Good Afternoon Lovely Friends,
How your day is going well so far!
I slept till 10:15 this morning. Can't believe it, but it sure felt good,
course, we went to bed around 1:30, so are we crazy or what???
We can be nite owls but we usually aren't that bad.
Just received a text message from our son, so that was heaven
for us. He said " so far, so good, we are on schedule,
finally was able to get a signal to text. Love u guys!"
It was a sweet and unexpected surprise from the Lord.
We were in a good mood before, but we are in a
great mood now!! We really did not expect to hear from
him until about next Wed. Also, thanks for your
prayers......we are definitely feeling them.
You are being a real blessing as so many
other friends are too!!
Well, we began again on our bathroom renovations
yesterday afternoon. Got the toilet taken out and
the rest of the tile that was under it, and got the insulation
put in the wall, my hubby is putting the new drywall
in as I write. We are hoping to get the wall finished
and the floor tiled in the water closet area today,
so it can cure overnight and be grouted tomorrow
evening. Hopefully, we can put the new toilet
back in by Saturday, if all goes well.
We haven't worked in there for awhile cause we decided
it would probably be easier to tackle this with just the two of
us here. Once we get the floor tile done then we will start
retiling our shower area. I am excited because I know that
once we start to see some "pretty" progress it will spur us
on to finish. Somehow when you are just tearing things out
and it looks awful it is not very motivating to me anyway.
I have already taken the wallpaper down in that area,
but still need to remove it in the dressing room area
but think I am gonna wait until we either start or finish
tiling the shower. I looks nice right now, so am not
looking forward to that part. It will be nice when it
is finished tho, cause the wallpaper does not match
the bedroom at present.
I had not planned on redoing my bedroom until
we finished the bathroom, but I had already found
a nice new bedset last fall, because my old one was looking
pretty sad. Then when our son moved back in with us
just before Christmas, he and his dad went and got all his
stuff around New Years, so I had to move a lot of stuff out
of the guest bedroom to make room, and a lot of the
decorations would match with my new bedroom decor,
so decided I might as well get on with it, so I did.
One day next week I will add some pics to show you
what I did. I really love it and didn't have to paint my
walls so was happy about that. Didn't want to have to
tackle that with all the bathroom work we still had before us.
Here is a little preview........This is the top of my
armoire in the bedroom. My colors in there are
peacock blue, avacado and lime green, brown
golden ye and cream. It is leaning more toward green
than to blue, not exactly how I planned it,
but I really like it.
My daughter gave me the potpourri for Christmas, and the silver
vase to put it in, but I couldn't get the potpourri to look right,
so I had these golden ye mums, so I stuck that in there, and put
the potpourri on a green plate I had. My friend gave me the birdhouse
for christmas and it was perfect for the room, and I already had the
silver gray box (for my everyday earrings) and the yellow candle,
and I had bought the smile sign at Target on sale for $5.00 just because
I loved it. So I was quite happy with the outcome. I also had potpourri
leftover for some other areas of the room. Which You will see next week.
Well, hubby is mudding the drywall, and I just finished putting the tape on.
Mudding is the tricky part but I know he will do a great job,
he can do just about anything when he puts his mind to it, and it saves
us so much money! It is great to have a handy husband!!
Well, I will talk with you tomorrow,
gotta go see how the mudding is going.
thanks for coming by.
Hope you have a great evening,
Hugs and Blessings,
