Busy days!! :)

 Last week Jim made some drawers for our "pan cupboard". It had been getting difficult to get down on my knees and get back up after searching the back of the cupboard for "just the right pan" I was needing. I had to resort to Jim getting them for me lately. It didn't take long for him to decide I needed drawers to be able to pull them out and reach the back without him having to help me.hehe Don't get me wrong..he is always more than happy to help..but he is getting slower at the bending and reaching too.LOL  I had seen something similar in a magazine and wanted them for a while now. Jim has some project or other going ALL the time. He LOVES working with wood and building things. All I have to do is suggest something and he is already figuring out dimensions and cost on paper.:) I am extremely happy with these drawers!! ONE of the best things he has done..along with the pantry...our entertainment center in the living scrapbook cabinet..what not shelves..and our cabinet where we hang coats, etc at our entry into the house. You already saw Christy's craft area. Jim and Christy made that whole thing!!! :) I am soo blessed to have a man that can do all these things while at the same time..loving me with ALL his heart!!:) P.S. He already had the materials for these drawers in his shop from previous it didn't cost a thing this time around.:)

These pics are of our new front porch. Jim and Christy are building it together. Christy knew it was needing done.( sixteen years of weather can really take it's toll on wood.) The porch was slowly falling apart and getting a bit scary. The railings were wobbly and the wood was dry and cracking.She actually PAID for the materials!!!..went with Jim to get them and bring them home..then stayed outside and helped him the whole time..except today..cause she had to work.:) I am soo PROUD of my baby girl!! She is a "giver" for sure! Thank you Lord for letting me borrow her for a while..She is yours first!!! :) We dedicated each of our children to the Lord when they were babies!!:) I couldn't ask for any better younguns!!:) Thank you Christy!!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!  Jim is down in his wood shop today making the railing etc for it. Mama offered to help paint it when it is done. SWEET!!!! :) I am truly BLESSED!!!! Thank you LORD!! :)

 If you wonder where I have been since Jim got my computer fixed..well..these pics should tell you some of it. Christy and I went shopping some when Jim was working. I helped Jimmy clean and organize his room yesterday and helped him with his laundry and three loads of Jim's and mine too..fixed breaded pork chops and cooked cabbage seasoned with bacon strips and salt...Steamed carrots in my steamer and had some wild rice to go with them. The wild rice was in a packet..already cooked and all I had to do was open the packet and microwave for 90 seconds. Everyone here loved it!! Sometimes you have to do things the quick way..especially after a LONG day of cleaning etc.:)Then I cleaned up the mess I made and QUIT for the day.hehe

  I WILL get by to see you soon. :)
