Projects, Projects, Projects!

Unemployment has been great to me!  Perhaps I am enjoying it a little too much and thus the lack of motivation to look for a job.  I’ve been keeping myself busy this summer with a trip to Colorado, accompanying our youth group on a trip to New Orleans, helping with VBS at church and many, many, projects around the house.

Trip to Colorado with good friends – I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time!

Dining room chairs – Before

Dining room chairs after!

We celebrated our first anniversary!  Our anniversary date started as a picnic and then it started to rain.  We moved it to our porch and the rain became a tornado warning with no power.  So… we spent the rest of the evening sitting on old chairs in the basement with no power.  The candles are sitting on top of the de-humidifier.

Our living room is now complete (and no longer has folding camp chairs in place of the sofa)

And SURPRISE!  It’s also a bed. (Which we didn’t order, but have decided is very nice to have)

The whole crew in New Orleans

Our backyard.

We have spent an abundance of time enjoying the porch!
I painted our front door.  Once I can find a long enough ladder, the shutters will be next!

And, this week I re-grouted our bathroom floor. 

Even though I still have some clean-up to do, it is looking much better!
And, in the midst of all of this, I’ve even found some time to do a little knitting…

A friend of mine had a baby in May and she asked me to knit her daughter a baby cocoon for their newborn photos.  Isn’t she precious?  I think she deserves her own post.  I am excited to meet her next week!
Gosh, I love days like these!
