"Our Volunteer Roller"
To make a long story short, the bathroom got painted on Monday! Painting wasn't even on the "to do list" for the week, but things just worked out that way!
Tuesday found Sayre and I painting the trim a glossy white and re-installing all the hardware that we had taken off of the walls. The glossy white trim really pulled the room together and will make keeping the baseboards a lot easier! I'm so pleased with how it turned out; as Trevor described the end result "It looks so cheerful now!"
Sayre's job for today was cleaning out the stone room in anticipation of getting the new part sheet rocked in the next few days. This room has been the catch all for the tools, paint, and stuff we don't know what to do with ever since we moved in and he had his hands full with sorting it all out! He got Sawyer involved after lunch and the two of them had fun running in and out the back door with arm loads of stuff!
In the midst of all the painting, cleaning, organizing, and everyday happenings that are going on, we have still found time to put up some Christmas decorations. I put the lights on the tree yesterday and Momma has pulled out the manger scene, candle wreaths, and various other decorations.
The puppies are officially up for adoption. At almost eight weeks old the are nothing but bundles of energy and sweetness! They can be trouble but I think the sweetness outweighs the trouble! :o) Sam was adopted by some friends of ours on Monday and I'm so happy that he has gone to such a good home! Collin has adopted one for his own...
... and we're now reliving the whole puppy experience! He's crate training him and last night was his first night in the house. He didn't stop howling until sometime between one and two o'clock this morning so I was eagerly anticipating my early morning cup of coffee (which is my one and only cup of the day)! We know why he was crying/howling and have since rectified the problem; we're hoping that he's much quieter tonight!
He's such a good puppy and has taken to crate training even better than Jasper did. He's very sociable, very playful, and just a bundle of sweetness!
Have a terrific evening!
