Loving Friends

My friends Marilyn and Barbie came to speak to me about some issues today. I'm so grateful. I spent the day in a state of conviction and because of their influence, along with my own repentance, I believe I've made a breakthrough.

Sunroom Desk - Before

My plan is to simply allow the Lord to speak to me about what to do each day. There are several benefits...I'm not overwhelmed, I'm not a slave to a "list" and He gives me tasks I can handle!

I've set aside large chunks of time each day for the next couple weeks. My job is to listen and obey!

This weekend, I finished relocating my clean clothes. I was keeping them in a large pile near the dryer. I now have put everything in my dresser. AND I went through all my shirts and I have a huge bag of giveaway clothes! PLUS more room near the dryer for a maybe four storage boxes for other things!

Today I'm going to clean my desk area and organize my file drawer. As you can see, this needs attention. I have to reach over this pile of papers just to reach the keyboard.

Paint My House-Almost Done

It's so weird how HUGE the house looks to me. The total is about 1,900 square feet which is wonderful for us, but I don't consider that huge. The porch is still purple here so I'll take some final photos when they are really finished. Though the yellow is nice, we all agree we miss the purple, difficult to get used to the yellow! They are painting the porch and front door tomorrow.

Paint My House-Before

Well, next to living in a purple house, I've always wanted to live in a yellow house. So there you go. Powerspraying was done two weeks ago and now today, we're all wrapped up in plastic and can't get out! That's real bummer, because I want to see what they're doin' out there!

The yellow isn't as deep and creamy as I would pick, but it is what it is. I'm thankful that as a renter, I don't have to do it all. Wish I had taken pictures of the old fence, because we have a new one. Talked to the landlord yesterday and she said I could do what I wanted with the front yard...hmmm, the ideas are swirling!

Today paint. Tomorrow trim and the red door. :)

Kitchen Update-After

It's DONE!

Wallpaper turned into yellow paint, white counters turned into neutral speckled Formica, white vinyl flooring turned into laminate wood planks all rounded out with a white tile backsplash!

Before photos are here:

Yesterday, while waking from my slumber, I noticed it was still dark outside. Which of course, makes it quite dark inside, as well. This is bothersome when wanting to rise and get out for a walk. The Lord gave me an idea...why not install a timer so the lights go ON when I want to get up?

I'm going to do it! It looks like I can buy a programmable unit that replaces my light switch! PERFECT, I'm going to get one!

The other idea was to replace the stack of boxes in my bedroom with a desk. Thank You Lord, I love this idea! My daughter likes me to stay upstairs after I put her to bed. I like this because I go to bed earlier. I don't like this because there are many things I could do downstairs before my bedtime! One thing that I haven't made time for recently is my word (Word) studies. This would be IDEAL! Put the kids to bed and slide into my jammies and have some time at this desk! I'm so excited!

Future desk area: nearly 40" x 31"
