I Painted furniture today!

I got up early and did some much needed house cleaning! I have been neglecting my house keeping chores for several weeks. I've been so busy with coaching and on the road that I had fallen behind. So this morning I mopped and vacuumed the house. I'm still not done with all the cleaning but I'm getting there. Today was such a beautiful day that I couldn't resist painting a few pieces of furniture. After church, we had lunch with a good friend and then I came home and got busy with my painting projects. I finished two more dining room chairs and I put the first coat on of black paint on a small desk that I bought. I painted the dining room chairs black also. I have two more left to paint and I'll be finished with that project. I plan to paint the pedestal and the underneath part of my dining room table and then later on the hutch. I will post pictures of before and after when I get time. Please continue to pray for my Dad. He is still in a special care facility trying to get stronger. He is still not eating so therefore he is very weak. Also, pray for my Mom as she goes each day and takes care of him and encourages him to try and get stronger. Often times, we forget those that are the caregivers in our prayers and thoughts. Have a great week.

Things are looking up!

My Dad has made a little progress this week. He is sitting in a chair,walking a little and eating small amounts of food. We are so thankful for those things. That may seem small but he has been very ill for 5 weeks now and this is so good. Thank you for lifting him up in your prayers, please continue to pray for his healing. My friend that I mentioned months ago that is going through chemo treatments for colon cancer that spread to other parts of her body is responding well to her treatments. Continue to keep her in your prayers as well.
Softball is going in full force this week and next week we start playing in tournaments. I really have not had time to work on any projects lately but hopefully I will get time soon to work on some of my things.
The weather is beautiful today. I had to get my field ready for the game and it was really relaxing to get on the mower and drag the field. I hope it stays sunny and clear for awhile. Have a Thankful Thursday.

It's been a long time

Well it's been awhile since I have posted on my blog site. My dad is still very ill and is back in the hospital. He came home for a short while and then we had to take him back to the hospital because he was in severe pain. The diagnosis is Pancreatitis. He was moved today to a special care facility and they are going to wait a couple of more weeks and do surgery. Please keep him in your prayers. He has been in extreme pain for nearly four weeks and unable to eat.

I have not been doing crafting or furniture painting. Softball season has started and there is just not enough hours in the day with all that has been going on. I have an old trunk in my garage and I am thinking of refinishing it. If anyone has refinished an old trunk I would love to hear from you. This one is a metal square top trunk. I am going to take a few pictures of it so you can see what it looks like. I have a game tomorrow night and then I am headed to Houston to see my dad for the weekend. Have a great weekend!
