|Mickey hard at 'work'.|
So far, so good. Mickey got eight layouts done the first day - I got one done. *sigh* Sometimes I am just so slow. Then, we went to check out the only scrapbook store in town just to find out that it was in it's final stages of closing out - and there is no sign of another scrapbook store to take it's place. Makes me think I'm making a mistake moving down here next month. *sigh*, again. The good thing is that we were able to take advantage of the clearance prices on all the stock.
The carpenter came yesterday to 'tear down' the closet before doing the installation of the pantry shelves. There was some drywalling involved to repair flaws and holes from the rod and shelf that had been part of the closet. As he was leaving he suggested that I might want to paint the walls of the closet before he comes back tomorrow to install the pantry. OK I said. Then I went on a search in the garage and basement for some leftover paint, a paintbrush and a roller, all of which I was able to find. It took Mickey and I less than an hour to get the walls painted but in the process I ruined a blouse and a pair of jeans because I kept backing into the wet paint in the small space.
|Painting is such fun!|
Lloyd and I missed our grandson Kenny's 6th birthday the other day so our son Mike and DIL Avril brought the kids over for a small birthday barbeque party for Kenny. That was a lot of fun. We haven't been able to be a big part of these grandkids' lives because we only see them a couple times a year, but once we move down here next month we'll see much more of them.
|The boys helped peel the corn|
|We filled our plates with corn, hamburgers, hotdogs, potato salad and cheesies. (Mike did the barbequeing).|
|Kenny blew out his six candles|
|And loved his Star Wars lego set, while Hannah dug for the birthday card|
|Hannah tucked into her cake like there was no tomorrow|
|Avril and Hannah played with the pinwheel from the top of the cake|
|Then the whole family settled in to put the kit together - Alex seems to have inherited his Dad's ability to follow instructions and put things together.|
