It has been a rainy Friday here in Texas! We woke up to light rain showers which slowly turned into more serious downpours as the day ended. This was a good thing for Louis Dean because it forced him to REST!!!! We had our morning routine of coffee and devotionals and then we decided to watch a little TV.
We got hooked on the Discovery Channel and Alaskan Bush People!!
We watched it all afternoon - pausing it to do our domestic chores - for me - and for Louis Dean to do a grocery store run! The rain is hitting hard here in the DFW area but not nearly as devastating as in the central portions of Texas! He said Kroger was crazy with people thronging the isles! Both the storm and just regular Friday night grocery shopping after people got paid made for a crowded store.
While he was at the store I started the dining room wallpaper project!
I cannot believe how many things I had hanging on this wall!
Wallpaper stripped and now sized for the new paper to be hung tomorrow.
I'm only doing one wall at a time and I hope to have it all done by Christmas!
Every project makes a mess!!!
I just piled everything up on the dining room table.
Louis Dean was hungry for salmon patties, mashed potatoes and candied carrots and that's what we had for dinner! The Alaskan Bush People Marathon ended at 4:00 so this evening we caught up with the Blue Bloods episodes,
It's been a cozy day here and I am so happy to FINALLY get around to doing my dining room project! Louis Dean did not get his sump pump thing done but we are hoping the rains will not be as bad here as they are down south. The attic fan is still on as I write so the temps have not dropped to the point that it is COLD yet!!! That's good news for tomorrow when the Trick or Treaters will come!
Not a big activity day as it goes - but we did enjoy the slower pace!
Tomorrow I hope to get that one wall papered! I'm not doing the whole room at once - just one wall at a time! Easy peasy!!
