More chicks

We let one of the hens hatch out her eggs and we got 2! That's what we got from the incubator! I'm so excited. My new shrubs are doing real well with all the rain. I went thrifting and got a cool new pillow with a tea pot. I'll post pictures when I can get the camera back from hubby!!

Adrianna with her Mom

This is a picture of my granddaughter with my son's girlfriend (her mother) Donna. I hate not being closer to them.

The Storm

We are all good here. I had some small branches down but that was it. The roses lost a bunch of petals and the trees leaves but we never even lost our power! Praise God!

I painted my kitchen! sons actually painted more than I did. It came out great and will be posting pictures later this evening. I am thrilled with the outcome and am very proud of my boys. I suppose when the going gets tough, the tough paint!!! I painted some things silver to get them to match the new color. The ceiling and cabinets are to follow. I am going to pick out new flooring some time soon.

I went thrifting!!!

I got a bunch of stuff at Salvation Army today. I bought 6 cut glass water glasses and on depression era reproduction goblet, and old fashioned wood stove iron, an Evan Picone purse, sneakers for one of my boys, a great pair of Sunday dress shoes, and a Martha Stewart book. All that for less than $20!! I got OPPS paint a Walmart for the kitchen and livingroom. I will be painting in the morning, God willing.

Update on the test

I did pass my teacher test for Florida, but I'm not getting anywhere with it yet. I suppose God's timing is perfect. I know He will give me a job when it's time. I am thrilled that I passed it.
