Carpet was supposed to go upstairs today, but for now we are just praying for the family of the carpet layer, as he has had a family medical emergency over the weekend.
We have had some color put on the house! Wow. I was hoping it to be a bit more on the orange side but Niel loves it so I did not order more paint (with the contingency that if it didn't grow on me in the next 6 months or so I would be tweaking it a little bit with a different shade.)
A Built-IN you can play behind!!
The space is three feet wide and I have plans to make an intricate line-drawing mural using a sharpie marker on the back wall. Then I'll screw a couple cups to it and fill them with colored pencils.
This is one of the two galvanized shop lights I am using to light the stairway. I just got a shipment of silver bowl globe lamps to use in them. (pic below)
Those little birdies make me smile.
The laundry room with the lights up. With all that being shared, I want to share something that I heard last weekend. I was attending a conference and Adam Smith was quoted. "How many people ruin themselves by laying out money on trinkets of frivolous utility?"
Well, I won't say if birds on my doors are frivolous or not but as far as what has come my way,
I am going to take it ALL, every gift! And I am going to use it and share it and
love it and praise God for it!
