A colorful post

Please pray for us as we close on the house Thursday at ~1PM Central. Huge deal!

I got my first batch of paint chips tonight. That back room is goin' DOWN, baby! I'm all for green rooms (did you see pics of my old bedroom?), but those poor walls need a bit of help.

Since we'll be in that room a lot, I figure it deserves to be at the top of the list. The upstairs bedroom might be close behind, we'll see. Here it is with its bold linoleum. The flash prevents you from appreciating the wall color, but you can imagine it in its electric blue glory, maybe.

Speaking of linoleum, here's the lovely flooring found in our enclosed porch. I think it's actually in good condition, and I may be able to come up with a cheery fix for the room with that linoleum in mind.

And speaking of cheery, remember the foyer?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. We have another tree in the living room, a wonderful balsam wreath on the door (where it won't get rained on, yippee!!) and the cutest gingerbread house on our dining room table! Now we just need another snowfall, since we got a bit of Kentucky-like weather and all our snow melted.

In non-house news, Loren's restaurant is coming together nicely. The remodeling is nearly finished, and he's got all new kitchen equipment. It looks great in there! He's hired about half of the employees he needs, so you can be praying the other half will show up soon. The restaurant opens on January 2nd. Needless to say, Loren's life is full of drama right now! And he's handling it very well, I might add. It's clear that God has been walking right beside him through the ups and downs of this whole journey.

It is also clear that it's way past my bedtime. And so this post shall now come to an abrupt end. G'nite!

  1. Wow, redoing that back room will make such a major difference. But you know retro is "in" so I bet you can just tie things together. :o) Of course that is coming from someone who has an avocado green oven and blue tile in the bathroom. We were so glad when those came back in style!

    The ducks said to tell you, "Quack, Quack." I get such a kick out of listening to them and watching them waddle around out there. Thanks for leaving them with us. I know you all will have lots of fun adding new animals to your place there when the time comes.

    Miss ya!
