Time flies

Time sure seems to fly by during the holidays. We enjoyed a visit from Will and had experienced much anticipation for it. It was over so quickly though. I'm still learning to make the most of those 'moments.'

I spent some time this morning just being 'still', as well as reading my Bible. I'm not sure that I'd read all the way through Ezekiel before till now. Hmm. Make an appointment with God, He's always on time.

We've added another color to the mix during the holidays. Yes, I know, hard to believe that we painted over the Thanksgiving holiday, but we did, a couple of hours, just one hallway, Stratosphere. A beautiful light shade of blue, really soothing. I might have to add some more of this one. I like it:)

Angel Eyes blue

The new color of my entrance hall. Angel eyes blue.

I'm not sure it's the 'right' color but it's the color on the walls for a while:)

It has been a while since I'd done any painting and as I now recall, after the slow painstaking process of painting trim, I don't like to do trim work. I much rather prefer rolling on a whole wall of color, rooms full of walls, seeing the transforming power of a new color of paint, almost in an instant. Trim work is painfully slow and blue tape application is torture, let's just admit it, torture.

My one negotiation in the planning of this project was that we would buy enough rollers so that I could just toss them at the end of a paint day. Yes, I know, totally wasteful, but hey, I hate cleaning paint rollers even more than doing trim work.

More painting to come, but not today, it's raining, so maybe I'll put some more tape in place:)

I forgot that I'd taken this picture on election day. Providential huh? God is with us.

Be Still and Know

Sometimes I think God is showing off, be sure you're still enough to notice.

Some things take time

I've just been the benefactor of a ten day visit from my Mom. We had such a good time together. Made me realize how busy I've been the past several years and it was good to have some dedicated time to just visit and do things together.

We even had our nails done, all of them, fingers & toes. It was both of our first pedicures, at least that we didn't do ourselves. Hard to believe huh. This neat little shop has opened up in the Alexandria mall, Jennifer's Nails. A real sweet couple just massaged and polished away. Oh, and if you've never sat in one of those pedicure chairs with the massage back, well, get ready, real cool.

Well, like I said, some things take time. We talked,cooked, ate, had some long drives, shopped, watched movies and just had a good visit. Quality and quantity. Sometimes, that's what it takes.
