This is the red roofed beauty that changed my life for the better. It's LaVerns's brother's garden house, and when she and I were walking Monday I took some pics of it and did a blogpost and posted this pic and a link on Instagram. Which I believe led to Mary Engelbreit following me on Instagram !!!! Wahoo!
Back in the real world, I spent The. Whole. Day. Painting. Cabinets.
When Dad got home he managed to tweak the cabinets enough to fit in the new sink that was 2 inches wider than the sink space! Yep he's the DIY star! (All kitchen pics are together toward the end of the blog post)
I spent the rest of the day, you guessed it, painting cabinets!
That night when Dad was at the temple Spencer brought up the record player and records he got when we were cleaning out Grandpa's house. As it turns out, one if the records was made by grandpa on his mission and sent to grandma, who was waiting for him. He tells her he loves her, though they'd not met at the time. So sweet. Though the voice sounds nothing like grandpa. Anyway, so glad Spencer thought to grab the records.
I worked on Wednesday, and got a call from a gal selling old family furniture in project condition, at a reasonable price. So Dad took out a van seat after work and we headed up to Orem to load up!
When we got home Dad got the electrical work done on the back splash, he made each outlet a double, so I went from 6 plugs to 12 plugs, plus he moved the disposal switch from under the sink to the back splash!
After walking on Thursday I came home and redid my porch.
I also got a call that day from Dad telling me his car died at Toquerville and he had AAA tow it to a place Rick's suggested in St George. Then Uncle Rick loaned him a car to do his work in St George and Overton, Nevada, before taking the St George Shuttle home! It turned out that it was the timing belt and will only be about $800 so it's doable. Happy day. We thought we'd have to say "it's dead Jim"
Friday was set up day for Fleaology. I did some sweeping and other stuff like hauling our metal furniture out of the patio to make room for dealers. Above is my booth set up!
Dad took the day off to help with set up and work on the kitchen. He got the green board in, the the cement tile backer board in, and put down the cute hex tile on the counter top!
Nell and I headed to bed about 1:00 AM. Yawn. Davin came to do the night watch again, which I love! We also had four dealers who slept in their campers and cars at the curb!
This is Richard, husband of Julie shown earlier, and he also rocks it as a Pyrex holder! In his spare time he manages Treasures Antiques where I work.
Today's has been a wonderfully spiritual day for me. We had the most amazing fast and testimony meeting. I doubt I will ever forget it!
After attending Dad's second branch meeting I headed home to nap some!
He had an inventory in the evening. Darby came by after he got home to charge her battery in her car, and we had a nice chat!! I thought I'd share some pics of Britt et al, who are at Disney World for the week.
Hope your week was full of fun too!!
