03.01.15 Birthday Happy to Madisyn!

west2Sunday, March 1, 2015 – Grannie and Paw Paw were called in to keep Madisyn over night so her mom, dad and Kim could decorate and get everything ready for her 6th birthday party.  So we played, snuggled, slept and took her to church with us.

We played outside while there was still light on Saturday.  I also took pictures of the newly cleared area on our land next to the pond. Now that Roy’s built a partial bridge over the culvert he was able to ride the lawnmower over there and cut back a lot of brush.

b7A look at the fresh paint job from the living room into the kitchen.  They will be back Monday to finish things up. b6 Here Madisyn is with several other children during the special children’s time in the worship service with our pastor Dr. Randy Davis.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear

02.28.2015 Painting and visiting!!

relaxing saturdaySaturday, February 28, 2015 – Bye Bye February!  Tomorrow we will welcome in the month of March, one of my favorite months because of new flower blossoms, new leaves on trees and more 70 degree days!

Our painting trio are back today making great progress.

20150228_123311 20150228_123327  20150228_123402 20150228_123413 20150228_123557Got a call from the counter top people that the counter top we chose was unavailable.  It was suppose to be put aside for us when we gave them the deposit three weeks ago but it wasn’t.  However they offered to give us 3 cm granite in the same design instead of the lesser expensive 2 cm granite we chose at the 2 cm price!!!  The 3 cm is available in a beveled edge instead of the bull nose edge.  That’s okay too!  We are hopeful the cabinets and counter tops will begrowing old together installed next Thursday.

My sister Harriett and Brother in law George are on their way to see us right now.  Then Madisyn will be here over night so I am trying to finish this before all the fun begins!

Madisyn is staying the night with us tonight and going to church with us tomorrow so that mommy, daddy and Kim have time to decorate and get everything prepared for her birthday part tomorrow.  Plus it will make it all a surprise for her when she sees it tomorrow for the first time.  It is absolutely wonderful to see the three adults working together on something benefiting Madisyn.  The little girl deserves that and I am proud of all three of them for making this happen.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!

02.27.15 Building a house is a piece of cake!

734401_833048396710692_1983591327_nWell this is the second time writing today’s blog.  The first one was finished complete with pictures and it disappeared.  Sure hope I remember everything I wrote in that one, it was good!

Friday, February 27, 2015 – Yep, building a house is a piece of cake, with the right contractor and subcontractors that is!  After a slow start due to holidays, rains, and other delays our house has gone up fast.  We are now within a week or two of the house being completed!! Thanks to Ronnie Glover, Cory Glover and all our subs!

A really nice and friendly trio of painters were at the house bright and early and started by prepping everything by filling nail holes and caulking corners and edges.  As we left I can hear them in the house spraying the ceilings!!!!! Here’s a couple of pics of their earlier work.

c10 c9We took Dora (our RV) to Amite to fill her up with propane.  We also stopped at the gas station to fill up with diesel while it is still $2.39 a gallon. Dora’s now full and happy. We also stopped at Walmart to pick up 5 items and came out1016835_1100500646642875_783139052894355040_n with 50. Just wanted fruit to make a fruit tray for Madisyn’s birthday party but we wound up buying almost enough food for us for a week. I’ve been having trouble finding our truck when I go shopping but today Dora in all her big glory was there for me to easily find!

Had a wonderful phone visit on a dear friend, Pat Turner, whose husband Bill died of Alzheimer’s and her neighbor was just diagnosed. I believe she is going to share my Alzheimer’s blog with the husband, who is very new to all this. If you know of someone my blog would help please share this link with them. https://rosalynsalzheimersblog.wordpress.com/

1377629_609944762377739_2100035853_nWhen we came home from our trip to town the painters were leaving for the day. They painted all the doors, all the ceilings and the walls in the master bedroom, closet and bath. I was so tickled to see color on the walls. They will be back tomorrow and can’t wait to see it finished! Here’s pictures of today’s painting.  Roy and I really like painting the ceiling the same color as the walls and you can see that here.  The ceilings still look lighter even though they are the same color.

c11 c7 c4  c6We didn’t think the living room and kitchen ceilings were painted until we moved around some and could tell it was.  The last picture above shows this.

Our vinyl man, Floyd Fayard came this afternoon to finish caulking the work he did last week.  I showed him the new bench Roy made for down by the pond since Roy used the ends of the front porch columns to make the bench legs from.  Here’s pictures of the bench.
