Drama, Trauma, Mama

we Have new Drama - a new hair color- cinnamon brown- it is very pretty , I think with her freckles she pulls off a bit of red with flair.
Then we had a bit of Truama today- vacsines and things to be ready for school - coming up fast.

Then we went for a bit of Mamma- fun sweet- funny singing along kind of movie!! I enjoyed every minute of it the acting a bit trite, the costumes wonderfully over the top- the laugh out loud singing moments - this may make my wish list

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time.

more painting to come

we worked on the 3rd bedroom, with a sugestion from Iola, we will be going with sunshine yellow. This will be a oops paint as well, this seems like a fun way to do these painting projects.

We will then put together a " spare bedroom" for future guests. Yeah

little house

This is a Doodlebug chipboard house- small size! I gave this away as a parting gift for a girl in the office. I told her it was a home away from home, and anywhere her heart was that would be home!
the steps have micro beads in green, there are stickes and paper and other fun stuff.
a lego girl on a bike and a cat round out the fun.

oh what a night! last night

We had a tree from the neighbors house come down, in the wind. a very tall cotton wood at 11:00pm last night. it took out all the power to the house by pulling out the wire from the pole to the house( it fell on it) no one was hurt no dogs were outside, the Fence took the brunt of the damage, public service Xcel energy came out about 1:30 and worked on cutting up the piece that you can see here. and hooked us back up to power about 4:00 am this morning. So oh what a night we had, no rest at all. Tonight we had vestry and then its back to the grind in the morning.
the claims adjusters will be out tomorrow to assess all the damage, though we have a 1000.00 deductable..... lets hope we can get the fence repaired.
this is part of the reason Hh doesn't like wind- she was very scared after this happened.
Well now we need to look at the other trees the ones in our yard, to be sure they need a triming too. but for now I am off to bed I will share more pics tomorrow or this weekend, I have a new altered project to share as well. stay tuned for more news in the chronicles.

Zuzzy likes the purple carpet we bought 5x7 area rug thqat will be a fun addition
The light is very nice on the fan, we both like this alot, S was able to make it work great, he is the best guy around, he makes lots of things work and repairs lot of stuff, fixes things and is a great self sufficiant Man. !!! I love him a ton.

Purple people and paint

Thanks Granma Ollie for the new Fan ! and the remote - this really will be the thing that is loved in Hh's new space.
We bought designer light switch plates and outlet/covers - black for the accent color.
We trimmed out the doors and the cove base trim - as well as a desk and bookshelf and standards and shelfs in black. 2 more in Purple- we will move furniture and stuff in tomorrow sometime.
This is the remote control for the fan and the light it even has a dimmer mode- very cool.
one tired puppy - that is what we all are. this is lots of work, but it has been very rewarding.
