We are out of school for the summer, and have had some very nice weather. I'm sure there are some who would disagree, but I would love for it to be in the 70's all summer! We've been enjoying our blueberry bushes, and I think the birds have been sneaking some too!
When our family moved here, we bought a doublewide that needed a LOT of fixing up! It was almost the only thing in our price range - we've put a lot of work into fixing and replacing things as we've been able to afford it.
Our home has popcorn ceilings throughout, which can be a huge pain to paint! The previous owners were smokers, so some of the ceilings were very dingy. We've painted some of them, but still have some more to do. Most of the advice I could find online about painting our type of ceiling has been to use a paint sprayer. My husband ordered a refurbished one from ebay, so we're waiting on it to arrive. I am really hoping it will work better than painting with a roller.
Katie has been enjoying her summer so far. Our next door neighbors have a daughter a year older than Katie, and they've been busy doing something almost every day.
I want to thank Amber for sending me this versatile blogger award! I'm supposed to tell you five random things about myself, so here goes!
1. I have one sibling, a brother four years younger than me.
2. I am a cat lover! I have two. One is so sweet and loveable, the other one is the reason a lot of people don't like cats!
3. I hate the sound of cracking knuckles!
4. I sing and play the piano, and have done so just about as long as I can remember. I may have told you this before, but I can remember when I was growing up, sometimes I would complain about practicing the piano. Most of the time, my mom's response was, "Well, you might grow up and marry a preacher, and need to know how to play the piano." And that's exactly what happened!
5. I love American history!
I'm going to pass this award along to my daughter,Katie.
Before I go, I wanted to tell you about a wonderful devotional I found on Amazon called A Gentle Spirit. I have had it for a while now, and I'm really enjoying it.
