I’m sorry my post is a little late this morning.
My husband’s Great Uncle Ward passed away this past Monday after 103 wonderful years of living. He was quite a special and amazing man!
So we have lots of family in town, and we were out late last night after the visitation spending time with relatives that we haven’t seen in a while.
But I wanted to let you know about the “Countdown to the Shindig” I will be having.
In 22 days, my father’s side of the family will be having a get together here at my house. We have 3 acres, so there is plenty of room for all the grandchildren and great grandchildren to run around.
I have a cousin who is the head coach of a SEC Division One basketball team! He and his family will be coming in town for the Shindig. We don’t get to see him very much because of his busy coaching schedule, so we are very excited about this get together.
And as you know, whenever you have a bunch of people over to your house, it makes you get a lot of things done!
I have a list:
1) Slipcover the loveseat in the guest house (I got at Goodwill for $35.00) from this…
2) Add a piece of material to my den curtains to make them longer.
3) Turn my corner hutch into “not-a-corner” hutch.
I’m hoping it will look like something out of Ballard’s Designs when I am finished!
4) Have my husband make new cabinet doors for the kitchen.
5) Paint my kitchen table and chairs.
6) Touch up paint all over the house!
And there is more! Can I do it?
I will have LOTS of pictures to share with you about the progress I hopefully make. :)
I just finished painting my den, and when I get my furniture in a new layout, I will share that too!
