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.

Trying to get back to it!

I am trying to get back into the swing of things again. Since I've been homeschooling things have gotten all out of wack. I let my 11 year old take care of the animals lately and discovered rats have been stealing eggs. My 13 year old has been doing wash to help out and my husband's white t-shirts and socks are a lovly shade of a blue gray mix. It's just so easy to have the children do it, but the effects can be, well interesting!!!

We had babies

Big Momma gave birth to at least 10 babies. We lost only one through the night. Momma Z is nesting and ready to give birth any minute! The entire family is so excited! Pictures will be added when I can get the camera away from my husband! We lost all our babies! I don't know why our mommas aren't taking care of them. I am going to get new mommas
