Feels great to slow down. :)

Hmmm I was going to try and take a photo of my hair. Got it cut and colored today. My hair seems to blend right in with the tiger curtains. lol The curtains are beach towels. I put a hem in them and used them for curtains. I made the lion pillow about 10 years ago. The scarf on the end table is a towel. I got the comforter for the day bed at Wal Mart a long time ago. This is the room that I had to clean up for company April 21 st. Feels great to have it cleaned up. It is not a very big room so kind of hard to get around in it when the day bed is made out. Now I have to clean up the other extra bedroom. Does anyone do like me... move stuff from one room to the next??? hahaha! I am ready to sit back and take it easy for the next couple of days. All I have to do is load everything in the Blazer. Gary will be helping a friend move tomorrow so I will be home alone. :) It seems like since he has retired people are coming out of the woodwork needing something done... friends, neighbors, and people we know. Yesterday he had to weld a tractor for a neighbor, fix my step-dad's stool, and help an elderly lady with her electric lawn mower. Have not helped the kids that much... but really need to find the time to help them a little too.



Wishing all of you a blessed week... and please be careful if you are taking a trip. :) Will be keeping everyone of you in my prayers. Hugs, Janie

I moved a rocking chair and matching foot stool from the living room to the bedroom Thursday to make room for my new recliner. I've already spent my stimulus check and I haven't even got it yet. lol The chair looks better in there anyway. Wow your room reminds me of Africa. Not that I've been there but my son-in-law has.

Janie, So wish you'd email me to say you're okay. I pray you are regaining your closeness to the LORD. Hang in there. It will happen, dear one. He is faithful, will finish what he has started in you. Love you much.
