And the Good News Is……

Today, we can power wash the deck and then it should be ready for stain.  Finally.  The boys spent the whole day yesterday working on that to get it ready.  Praise God for those 2 boys of mine!!  I bought them each their own case of Sprecher sodas and a gallon of sweet tea.  Hubby got that too since he is working so hard right now too.  We are in the home stretch on that one!! 20140708_181610

Went to my daughter’s house last night to pray through and bless it for them before they start really moving in.  We picked a good time since the hubby had to come and help find a water leak that appeared after the water was turned on in the house and flooded the basement.  That went much better with prayer!!  We discovered now that all the faucets seem to need to be replaced since they all leak or won’t turn off completely.  May even just need knew gaskets.

That was a bit frustrating to say the least.  But we did expect some of that since the water had not been turned on until yesterday and we didn’t know what we were going to see.  At least they don’t NEED to move in this weekend.  They have some time to get these things fixed.

Honestly, though, I don’t know what we would do without all these people who can do the things that need doing.  We have kids who are willing to help get projects done and aren’t afraid to work to get them done.  I am so proud of all of them.  They most of the time, see what needs to be done and will do it!  In the midst of this, they are also getting their rockets painted and ready for the fair next week.

Today, we will have to get started on posters for the fair.  Yes, I know…  I should have been more prepared and had them done last spring.  Maybe next year.

No mouse, but there was a bird this morning that hit the window hard as I sat to drink my coffee and pray.  I jumped and spilled my coffee.  Its not like the window is clean and it couldn’t tell!!   I felt so bad for the poor thing thought and I thought it would recover.  It didn’t.  Its now laying in my flower bed and will have to be removed.

This week we have had a mouse, a dead baby rabbit, and now a dead bird.  I don’t really like these kinds of things..

We are getting to the end Praise the Lord!!

Blessings on your day!!
