I'm having some glitches with blogger. I can't post pics anymore. My more tech savvy sister is helping me and I hope to have some pics or maybe something new coming soon. I have a few minutes to catch up with you and let you know how things are with me...I hope to get this problem solved quickly!

It all started last week. No really it did. I've mentioned that my husband made me a new cabinet. Well it's done and in the house. I had to pick out some paint to finish it. I picked a deep red color. Oh it's sweet! I hope to get a pic of it...we shall see. Then out of the blue my husband decided to paint part of the wall! I was a little surprised by this and exclaimed "What are you DOING?!" He smiled and said "Well now you can pain the walls!" Oh.
So what started as a small project of painting the cabinet turned into painting the living room. I've wanted to do it for a while now, but just didn't. So I started painting the living room. It's now updated to the same red as the cabinet on the bottom and light brown on the top. I have a chair rail around the living room and that part is the red. The brown is now what I think looks like coffee with too much cream in it! Next I need to pick out some curtains and it will be done. But if you've ever painted with red you know what a pain in the a$$ it is. SO many coats! That took forever. The brown was done rather quickly. My SIL came over and helped me. I didn't tell my family that was coming over for Thanksgiving what I had done and they were surprised! I'm happy it got done too! Such a difference in the house, a much needed updated look!

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful. So much to be thankful for. My parents, grandmother, sister and her son came over. It was at my house, and I had such a good day! The food was good, the company was good, and my living room was done!
 In farming we've learned so much. Some years have been good with only small learning curves and then wham, you get hit in the  face with learning curves or life just kinda explodes all over the place. Just making us stronger in our faith and leaning on each other.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Have a great day all!


  1. Thank you for your sweet Thanksgiving wishes :) Glad you had a lovely time. Hope your pics start working again soon - it'll be fun to see the pics of all the painting you've done. Have a great weekend!

  2. I just went through this myself on my computer! It was almost 3 weeks before I could post my own pics! The format/layout I have on my blog will not change. It's like FROZEN or something! I have read from time to time this happening to others....sometimes I think we have to wait it out...that's what I did and at least it's taking my pics now. Hope it works soon for you...I know it can be aggravating! I hope you had a wonderful THANKSGIVING! Roxie
