Hello on a snowy day-before-spring-arrives Saturday...I thought I'd pop on the blog while we await Sarah's next post that lets us all know whether the girl that most folks voted for is indeed due to arrive in August. Or whether the other guys guessed right. :)
This is National Quilting Day...and I haven't done anything quilty..only in my dreams. What about you? Did you do any quilting or visit a quilt shop? I am expecting a fabric delivery...it even could have arrived today in honor of Quilting Day, but we never made it out to the box to check.
I've mostly been occupying myself today with second priming Jonathan's first 10 cabinet doors.
Back-side prime, sand, prime, sand. Front-side prime, sand, prime...sand. Next up is the real painting job. Back-side paint, sand, paint. Front-side paint, sand, paint. Soon it will feel like we're getting somewhere. Move these out, move more in: And notice the snow outside the windows? Here's today's photo I sent Sarah in Georgia to make her a little homesick...no, not really...it was just in case she was interested, haha: And here's the photo she sent back taken from her front porch. Aaah, slightly different scenario. Which scene would you pick? The springtime one for me, please!: And here's my serenader who likes to pluck out some tunes for us some evenings: Jonathan's playing from The Shenandoah Harmony, a Four-Shape tune book, page #77 titled Collins. And here are the words for our Sunday Hymn post:
1 O hearken, sinners, we have cause To warn you of your danger,
We pray be reconciled with him Who once lay in a manger.
2 A glorious throng have gone before Who shout and sing hosannah;
They stand around the tree of life, And always gather manna.
Ho! Every one that thirsteth! Come ye to the waters:
Freely drink, and quench your thirst,
Ye Zion’s sons and daughters.
Happy 1st Day of Spring tomorrow!
