My father

Been a busy week. Sunday flew by just too fast. We spent the day at my fathers, trying to get the house in order. My father's health is not as it used to be, guess it's due to how hard he worked all his life. He was a work-a-holic, providing for his family. We grew up with everything we needed and then some things we wanted, we were very fortunate to have a father like that. It is due to his generosity and just being as he is that I do not mind going and helping him out around the house. My mother passed away almost 5 years now---wow, it still seems as though it was yesterday. She always said dad would not be able to keep up with the house---she was right on.

We are almost done with the bathroom re-do my sweetie and I have been working on for him---it is looking good.

Well, this was just a short post, needed to jot my things down. Until next time. Hope all had a great weekend.

I have this need....

I don't know about y'all but I have this need to view, read all the blogs and I can spend hours and hours on this! Gosh, then my mind wanders and I realize I need to jot things down and my creativity starts to run and run and I want to share with the world. (...sigh) I have so much I want to post/share with pics of things we've done. I am going to give it my best to do just that. I see other bloggers with beautiful sites---I can only dream to get mine to look like that.

Today I want to share a little revamp item I did. It is an old time clock (purchased from an estate sale--dirt cheap) someone had taken the wind up mechanism out and updated it to battery run one. I loved the old numbers and the glass dome. Brought it home, sanded the frame, painted it this teal color and then gently distressed it. What do you think? Please excuse the bad photos, remember, I am a newbie to blogging!

Until next time...... Be safe !
