I was talking to my mother-in-law tonight and mentioned a couple updates to the nursery ... her response, "Did you post the pictures yet?" Ugh, not yet. So I quickly went upstairs tonight and took a couple pics of the updates...
My father-in-law came down this weekend to help build a bookshelf for Silas. Over the weekend, I found my new favorite tool ... my paint sprayer for my air compressor. I've had it for a while but never had the right attachment to my air compressor. He informed me that I could get that at an auto parts store so we got it and ... wow. So much easier painting anything/everything by brush or roller.
So the doors for the toy box/window seat came in and we sprayed them and I got them installed last night ... I think they look good ... I hope when we get new carpet, I didn't install them too low ... we'll see ... I may be redo-ing them in a month or so...
The bookshelf I think turned out great ... it is the same color as the toy box. The client ...er, my wife, changed her mind a couple times but this is the general thing she ended up wanting. She is happy with it so that is what matters. My father-in-law is great at woodworking and I learned a couple things from him ... just don't tell him :)
I think the nursery pictures will be on hold now until it is complete. We can't put furniture up there until the carpet is in so it's going to stay unfinished for a bit. I got a few projects to finish before carpet goes in and Silas comes up ... wrapping up the nursery, tiling under our stove in the basement and entry from the garage, installing baseboards in the living room (haven't put it up since we remodeled this winter) ... gotta get outside as well ... got a hayfield out there. I have worked on getting the mower ready the last 2 nights and mowed a little tonight.
Had a freak-out for a bit after mowing ... lost my wedding ring. Couldn't find it anywhere ... searched the garage, yard, trash, etc, etc. Nowhere. Amber came out to help look. Nowhere. UNBELIEVABLE! The thought of losing the symbol of our marriage was boiling in me. As I was in the garage, I had a thought (well, I believe the Holy Spirit dropped it in my mind) to search the gloves I had on when working on the mower. In the bottom of the glove was my ring ... THANK YOU LORD JESUS!! I come upstairs to tell Amber and she says 'I've been praying the whole time.' God is SO good even though I doubt so much.
The next couple weeks are going to be crazy busy so my posts will probably be as sparse as they have been ... sorry. Amber's shower in Indiana is Saturday and I just started tonight trying to get a video done for it. Going to be interesting.
Next weekend we get to celebrate the resurrection of our LORD!
The weekend after Easter we were blessed to be given a cabin in Gatlinburg so hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can do some hiking while we're there and visit some AGCI families.
OK, back to the shower video...
