Projects Unfinished and Children Unplugged
painting my bedroom/bathroom/bedroom ceilings (and don’t you love the lamp that I rescued from my own yard sale and painted blue?)
Last week, I started 37 projects. That’s kinda how I roll. And I should have learned by now that when I do that, I end up sick. So, now I have 37 half finished projects and raging bronchitis. And our family Thanksgiving just happens to be Thursday—-at my house. I am blessed to have been able to hire a painter who’s coming today to help me finish. But I’ll show you a few pics from the week and we’ll all cross our fingers that we get all our ‘stuff’ done in time to relax and enjoy our families. Keep in mind, NOTHING is finished. And while I coughed and painted, the little girls played a lot of American Girl fantasyland and the ‘big’ girls made the cutest shirts.
a new wall of frames and the cutest pillows (TJ Maxx for the geometric and Target for the birdies)
a spruced up mantle for Christmas–did I emphasize unfinished?
new paint for the girls’ room
new paint for the girls’ beds
Christmas lights for the craft room

site for a peek into some of the yummies I’m making——in between coughing and painting. I promise I’m not coughing in the food. My brother in law may no-show when my sister reads this post to him.

Whether the projects all get done or not, this I know: I am profoundly blessed, beyond anything I could ever hope for or ask. And I will pray for a heart of thankfulness, for myself, for my family and for you.
