I thought that I would just do a quick post to fill you in on all that’s been going on in my world lately.
The last post was about the dresser that I found, and planned to update. Well, that project hasn’t moved very quickly. I was hoping to get it finished before we started back to school (we homeschool), but that didn’t happen. I did buy some new knobs, and price my paint, but then I got sidetracked with other projects. (That’s Life)
We started back to school and now have two weeks under our belts – yay! Things are going pretty smoothly this year. There were three students, then two, and now only one, so it has gotten a little less stressful. Hannah is starting 9th grade this year. We have been doing a lot of hands-on activities. We have a short day on Fridays, and do Bible, nature studies, and handicrafts. This gives us something to look forward to during the week.
I also had to help host my sister’s baby shower.
This will be her third baby, a girl. Her second child is now 14 1/2 so, we are very excited to have another little one in the family. We are looking forward to the holidays and passing her around! My daughter and I hosted the shower, and wanted to keep it really simple. I made the cupcakes with homemade butter cream icing (yum), and Emily made ham and cheese rolls with a refrigerated pizza crust. Just slice them and bake.
I bought a fruit platter with caramel dip, and a small vegetable platter with buttermilk ranch dip. Since my sister is having a girl, we decided to make pink lemonade, water with lemon, and diet soda (we have several diabetics in our family). I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
So, you see that I have been busy. I am excited to finish the dresser, and will make a post on it soon. We are taking Monday off of school, so I am planning to work on it then. We will see….
Until next time,
