The rest of the day was spent doing household chores, and reading. I finished reading my latest Ann Perry novel, either Monday or Tuesday, which made it easier to have Dad gone.
I also painted the mantel marriage in our bedroom. Dad put it together for me a couple of months ago, and the antique base part was still the dark wood, while the mantel shelf and top have old white paint.
On Wednesday, I worked, and did my Instagram post before heading out. Wednesdays are usually not my favorite work days, but it went OK. It was the 105th anniversary of my father's birth, so I thought a lot about him, and how blessed I am to have had such an amazing father.
Thursday morning, Dad and I headed to Salt Lake to Primary Children's Hospital, where we participated in the KSL/Primary Children's Radiothon. Above I am shown with Amanda and Grant, who do KSL's morning show, if fact, I usually wake up in the morning to their banter!
Trevor and Nell took Barb and Randy's places since they both had other commitments. Of course Jeff and Robin were there too, which is always fun!
Good times ... then it was junking at the DI in Sugarhouse before heading to work for the last half of my shift.
After that the day was dedicated to house cleaning. I even cleaned my disgusting stove top, then did laundry and worked on emptying out my van and putting stuff away.
That night Dad brought home Subway for dinner and we watched a Red Box movie that was pretty dumb, because there was nothing in ANY of the theaters in Utah County that we wanted to see.
After the movie we went to Macey's and did some food storage shopping at their case lot!! Yeah Dad! Yeah me for having a dolly for my antiques business!!
As you can tell from the picture above Becca stopped in to visit with Grandpa Carlo that day, which we always appreciate.
He stopped on the way home to see the slide that Trevor had installed on his new deck. Pretty cool that!
Then Dad added a new top to an old toy chest, put new sides on the small cupboard I picked up at flea.o.logy in January. Which I liked because it is small enough to fit between the two door frames in the kitchen, rather than overlapping like the old one with the green glass handles did. The old one will go to the antique mall to find a new adoptive home. Dad also cut wood for me to make an arrow, and put new legs on the back of the dumb dresser we have been trying to make over/repair for more than a year!!
I spent the rest of the day painting the projects he put together, and there's more than enough to keep me busy this week as well.
Here is the little cupboard, see how much better it fits? It has a little bit less storage than the old one, but it will just make me be more organized.
That night we cleaned up and headed to the new Indian restaurant in town. The food was great!! I learned to love Curry in Japan, and rarely get it. Yum, I need make curry again. Yum!
I also taught Sunday School, a lesson on Chastity, which I was not that excited about teaching, until I did some more praying and studying on Sunday morning, and in the end I loved the lesson! Such amazing stories can be found in the old testiment, though they may not all be suitable for children, if you know what I mean. But there is so much to learn from those stories, about the nature of mankind, and how to overcome the natural man.
Davin and Bri brought brownies that Davin initially claimed to have made from scratch ... ummm, not .... but he did make them, so that's cool!
Everyone loved the meal as well as the visiting and sharing that goes on at these events.
Somebody else looks like they are getting ready to walk the runway as well!
That was our week, hope yours was great!
