Saturday Smiles: Progress on Projects

This morning, John and I got up early and headed down to the temple.  What a great way to start the day! 

When we returned home, we tackled some projects.  The "Room of Requirements" continues to take shape.  Crown moulding and baseboards are in the future plans (as is furniture!), but for now we are just enjoying the paint color and the newly-hung curtains.  What do you think?

It's hard impossible to tell from the first photo what the pattern on the curtains is.  The third photo is a close-up of the fabric. 




Tonight, I worked on a huge project--the family photos.  My poor kids have photo albums that have been stuck in time for about 10 years or so.  It is seriously time for me to update them (the albums, not the kids.) 





It's going to get worse before it gets better, I'm afraid.  I don't want to even think about the digital files I need to sort through. 

Our mantra lately has been, "little by little."  It's amazing what improvements can be made one baby step at a time.  We're not done with our projects, but I'm pleased with what we've accomplished so far. 

Thankful thought:  Thanks for projects.  As long as I have projects, I will never be bored.  (And I can't imagine running out of projects!)

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
