I do hope you've all had a
lovely weekend . . .
I'm sitting around today
not doing much at all,
but the weekend and the few day
leading up to it were full of projects.
One of the things that I had to do
was get the A/C unit recharged.
We had temperatures as high as 116
and I was three days without A/C.
The air intake is under the sofa.
I got to thinking that having that
storage chest in front of the
sofa probably wasn't the best idea.
So, I went out to Steve's shop
where I have a lot of things
put aside for a yard sale.
One of them being our old coffee table.
It seemed having a table in front
of the sofa to allow air flow
would be more efficient.
So, I decided to give this table a make-over.
Of course I can't do anything
without making a mess.
I used leftover paint from
painting the front door for this project.
Here it is finished.
I did a little distressing . . .
Then if it does get bumped or scratched,
it's never noticed.
Not by me or anyone else, LOL.
And here it is back in the house.
I'm so glad that I haven't had
my yard sale, yet.
You have no idea how many things
I've gone out and retrieved.
I also made jam
from a recipe I found on You-Tube.
I had some rhubarb so I did a search
for rhubarb recipes.
If you want the recipe
go to You Tube and type in:
Parsnips and Parsimony
Making and Canning
Strawberry-Rhubarb Jello Jam
It's made with rhubarb, crushed pineapple
and strawberry jello.
This was my view out the kitchen
window as I worked.
Our neighbor was mowing his hay :)
I had enough rhubarb leftover to bake muffins.
They were nice to have on hand,
because one of my out of town girlfriends
stopped and spent Sunday night with me
on her trip back home, after visiting
with her sisters.
I've been blessed with wonderful
and very supportive friends
and amazing family encouragement
We are living through trying times.
Remember to put God first. . .
He loves it when we come to Him
with our problems instead of trying
to figure it all out on our own.
He is so much wiser than we are :)
Why do we sometimes wait until things
are overwhelming before we call on Him?
Have a lovely week and thank you
for stopping by to visit.
Your blogging sister,
