Friday Tidbits

Painting continues on Our Country Bungalow and Dear is doing an great job as usual.

Soon I’ll be able to show before and after all the way around the house. The new colors are Teton Blue with white trim. We purchased a 5 gallon bucket of the Teton Blue and we might need one more gallon.

My photos aren’t uploading this evening so I’ll try again tomorrow.

The small businesses in our little town are having sidewalk sales. They started on Thursday and continue till Saturday. After I was done at the hairdressers on Thursday I stopped by and walked Main street to see what I could see. I bought greeting cards for 50 cents each and a handmade soft simple leather wallet that fits in a pocket. I’ll use that little wallet on walks instead of taking my purse. There is a new little shop in town that I made two more purchases from that I’ll show photos of soon.

This photo popped up in my memories on Facebook this week from July of 2009. Me and my daughter transformed our patio gazebo into a Moroccan dining room for a bridal shower. Katie’s friend was into all things Moroccan. So much has changed for all of these young ladies since 2009. This was at our home in Kenmore.

Back to the present. After our very busy times last weekend we are heading into a quieter weekend with only painting, mowing and church on the schedule. What is happening in your corner of the world?

The Heavens Declare the Glory of God…

Jo is taking the week off from Wednesday Hodgepodge.

I was up early on Tuesday and stepping outside I enjoyed the beautiful skies while listening to all the songbirds greeting the morning. Couldn’t help myself from hoping I’d hear that trumpet sound!

Painting is in progress. This is the South side and most exposed and faded part of the house. We are changing the trim to white and simply framing the windows with white. The rest of the siding will be the Teton Blue by Behr paints. We won’t add a third color except for the doors which are already painted the Marine Dress Blue. Don’t look too closely at all our weeds.

June is speedily coming to an end.
