A GIFT IN THE MAIL

 Look
 what the Mail Lady
 brought me this week!!
  

I'm in a very nice FaceBook group called STITCHES FROM THE HEART.
We recently had an apron swap and my swap partner made this lovely full size apron for me!
I love it because it covers me (no Sunday Dinner Hand wipes on my Dress clothes), it's light and not heavy around my neck, it's COOL (Temperature wise, I mean) and it's vintage looking.

AND...for those of you who have asked...
The House remodel is still in full swing and my nerves are in full swing right along with it!  I hate chaos, and this is just about more than I can bare.  I'm unable to cook which at this time of year is Painfully hard for me to do without.
  Isn't that a pitiful looking stove???
Before the hardwood...

However, some progress in that the bottom white beadboard is up but still needs caulking and that last coat of glossy white paint!!  The cream color above is light and will go well with the antique white cabinets/


The new Kitchen lighting goes in Monday along with the cabinets.  WHOO HOO!!!!!!

My new Dining room floor...NO MORE CARPET!!!

Do you think I could do some SLICING with the BIG SAW???
After the Hardwood...  Dark Cherry Bamboo Hardwood Flooring

 I shouldn't complain...I'm ashamed of myself. 
 I am so Grateful and Blessed to be able to remodel and update my home.  God has Blessed us over and above and I hope to cook many meals out of this kitchen not only for my family but for those who need a Home Cooked Meal.  I'm going to be a new *MEALS ON WHEELS* Driver/Cook?Volunteer!!!!

There is such a need in every community...if you are able, check into how you can become a volunteer!!

I think I need a week at the beach...Gulf Shores Here We Come!!  Do you like the beach in cool weather?  WE DO!!  #1 says the Fishing is great and I can sculpt sand castles with NO HEAT!!  Sweet Baby James wants to build a sand dinosaur with Grandmommy...tough job isn't it?

I WILL BE REAPPEARING OCT. 24TH
FOR 
WICKED BLOG HOP!!
*Her Wickedness* is Guest Posting
(I really don't like anything to do with anything Wicked and almost didn't join up but I decided to go in a whimsical direction with my creation and I felt better about it)
BLESSINGS
