Good morning Folks ~ It is Wednesday, a new day, may I rejoice and be glad in it. I’ve much to be thankful for. I’ve had a down couple of days, cried at the gas station yesterday, but I’m feeling better today.
I think what has gotten me down this time, is I’m going to have to call a handyman to do some work around here that Mark and I used to handle. That hurts in more ways than one, but it’s now a way of life. I’m pretty sure I’ve got a leak in the old water pipe under the house. Mark had repaired a pin hole a few years back and we were talking of redoing the water pipes to pvc and making it go around the east foundation of the house on the outside, not underneath. The crawl space under the house is very tight. So, that’s one of the things I am going to talk with the handyman about. He comes highly recommended from the church I’ve been going to and by a couple of the widow’s, so I’ll give him a call and see what he says. I’m paying for city water, so want to get the problem fixed before it gets worse.
This morning after my first cup of coffee and during the second, I rearranged the grouping on the west wall of the living room. I added a couple more small paintings done by Mama, framed by Papa and they add whimsy. These baskets and paintings that were done by them were done right here in this little cottage. Pine needles gathered by Papa.
Below are close-up shots of it all.
Aren’t these cute? The expressions on the faces are sweet. Mama started painting late in life and her style is primitive, which is a style Mark and I both liked.
We found this piece at the flea market years ago. The little pine cones in the center are from the Australian pine trees, that have been wrapped in red yarn. I should move the little cones to the center of the basket, but am not sure how it is tied on the back to change it. So for now, it is as it is. I think it looks good with the collection done by Mama and Papa.
The mirror is really pretty and I like the beveled lines on the two side pieces.
A rose called ‘Love’.
I came across this song the other day and it really touches my heart.
God does indeed make beautiful things.
Love, hugs and God’s blessings
on each and every one of you.
