I’m still doing too much…
because I can’t get it all done in a 24 hour day.
But this week will be a short week.
David’s first week at his new job has gone great! He’s excited to go back for a second… any many, many more!
Granny is here for a 2 week visit (!!!!) And she’s helped me (we’ll I didn’t do much) catch up on ALL the laundry. (and she’s coming back again tomorrow to help more… b/c we keep wearing clothes and the piles keep growing.) I wish she lived closer. And not just to help me with laundry. I love having someone here to visit with during the day! Always a fun treat for me!
PLUS, she taught me to embroider! Just like her mom taught her! Not that I have lots and lots (or even just one “lots”) of time to sit and do this, but I’ve wanted to learn this skill. It’s on my list of homemaking things to teach Lydia.
And speaking of Lydia, I think she’s teething.
I’m guessing 1 year molars She’s not feeling the greatest. But look how cute she was today for church!
In preparation for the coming holiday weekend and the guests we have visiting, David has been checking off home improvements left and right! He finished grouting and sealing the tile on the porch last weekend.
It’s so pretty and bright out there!
And this weekend he finished drywall and wainscotting in the bathroom downstairs and started laying the tile in there! It’s so exciting to see! We borrowed the tile cutters from my dad last night so maybe this week the bathroom will get the toilet finally installed!
He’s getting so tall! (I think I’ll be saying this for many, many years to come.)
He and David take many trips each week to see all the construction vehicles around the corner. The main road by us is in the middle of a 1.5 year long project. Diggers galore! Detours galore.
So there’s a glimps of what’s going on over here.
What’s new with you?
