Busy weekend....

It was a busy weekend at my house.  I've been working on this chair a little at a time but still have a long way to go.  At least I got all the old fabric off and did all to the finish I intend to.  Now for the real work.
Instead of painting the chair like originally planned, I decided to go with the red and sand it a little with a darker glaze on top.  I'm thinking I'll put linen on it.  I also have a red and natural color linen that I like too.  We'll just see what looks best when I'm to that point.

It was Sage's turn with grandma so I picked him up after school.  He had basketball practice Friday night and a game on Sat. morning.  That's what happens when they're 9 yrs. old.  We still had time for us and he made me get out in the snow and help him build a snowman.  He tried sledding but just not enough snow left.

If you look real close, you can see our snowman on the left.

Then Stella and Phoebe came to spend Sat. night so Mom & Dad could have a night out.  They were rightfully impressed with our work.

We had such a good time and actually made it to church this morning for 9:30 service.  I admit it wasn't easy but we did it and they all helped.

Tomorrow is work day at Leola's.  I'm really considering giving up my work day to someone else.  Seems the slightest little thing bothers me anymore and makes me question myself.  I'm going to a bible study with Allison starting this week that's called "Me Myself & Lies and it's all about your inner self and the way we talk to ourselves and would God be happy with the way we treat ourselves.  One of my new year's resolutions was to be better to myself.  It may not be the way others think I should do it or the way others think I should be affected but to be honest with me and do what's best for me.  Just trying to figure things out.

Have a wonderful weak and stay warm.
