A Fabulous Friday

Today is Tommy's "Social Security" birthday, in other words, he is 62 today. He probably would not appreciate my "annoucning" that, but he'll likely never know it. :) So, it's our little secret. Alright! I should have cooked his favorite meal for him, but instead, we went to the local Mexican Restaurant that we both enjoy and celebrated his birthday there. We will have a "family celebration" next week-end.

A friend and I went to the Spring Market in Monroe today. It's always fun to see what the various vendors have to offer and to see and chat with friends.

Things are really moving along with the updating process. One of you asked me what I was doing in the updating. I'm having the two upstairs bedrooms painted, new window treatments made and new bedding. We are having an entertainment/gun cabinet built for the upstairs game room and making the other side of the landing area a "sleeping room." I put twin beds there and think it will be something that grandchildren might enjoy in a few years. I changed out the window treatment in those areas as well. The kitchen got a new drape for the French door. The foyer and hallway are getting new wallpaper. We have new den furniture ordered and will take the present couch and club chair upstairs and put it in the game room. Our bedroom is being painted and getting new bedding and window treatments and our bath is getting new wallpaper. Our bedroom has had a gallery of family pictures on the wall for 32 years. That's long enough! I took all of them down, took the pictures out of the frames, stored the pictures (so the kids could throw them away one day :)) and took the frames to the consignment shop. While we have so enjoyed the gallery, it was time for something else to be hung on our walls. Not sure what that will be just yet, but I'm sure I'll find something. We're putting gas logs in the fireplace and a new front porch light fixture. Think that's the majority of what we are doing. I will post pictures when we get finished.

The gals will be back Monday to hang the new wallpaper and the painters will begin the painting Monday. I am hopeful that the next time an updating project is done here that it will be the next owners doing it, NOT me. :)

Our gorgeous spring days have been replaced with dreary, drizzly weather the past couple of days and tomorrow is predicted to be quite cool. Hopefully this will be our last "cool snap." I'm ready for spring, all the time!

In closing I want to mention something out of my devotional yesterday morning. It was about "passion." Passion for Christ, reminding us of the importance of serving Him passionately, following Him passionately, and loving Him passionately. I have been reflecting on that and found that I am lacking. As I come into this Easter season, may I be found growing in my passion for Him.

Blessings galore to each of you!!!
