[quote=babetoo;602984]my custom ordered floor tile, is in at lowe's. soon i will have a new kitchen floor. can hardly wait.babe[/qu


the wandering handyman showed.he took me to lowes to pick up tile. it is just beautiful, even more than i thought it would be.

abel will be back on mon to do the floors. he picked up a couple days work at place when they make arrangements out of fruit. they are busy for mom's day i guess. it should not take more a three hours to do the kitchen.

when he showed up he brought me money he owed and dinner. trying to get on my good side again, i guess. lol

most of the pieces of furniture are old ones that i painted white, a desk, a tea cart etc. i used paint that i think is kid proof. also finished up with top coat that keeps water marks from happening. i have great grandkids so it is really a good idea. i can just wash it off with a sponge.

Stopped what I was doing here to go get some Iced tea..In walks my oldest with a large tall box..He reaches in and pulls out a tall glass vase and in the vase a branch of white orchids in water. Happy Mothers day Mommy..He hasn't called me that in years..Oh how I love that boy..and not because of the beautiful flowers, but for the beautiful man he has become..

Spending my Friday night with Nick. I made slow cooked ribs all day and we ate them with wine, a nice cheese, and a salad. Took is 3 hours and we loved every minute of each others company. We do this once a week - taking our time and spending a nice long dinner together.

It makes me thankful and happy that I have someone I want to share my life with so much.

it's also making me smile that he's doing the dishes after I cooked :)

Sitting here in the family room in the recliner surrounded by my furry "children." Silly-Sally-Callie-Gal, Chessie Lou, Tween, Miss Rodeo, Tigger, and Ashley (snoring up a storm). They're all snoozing comfortably, feeling all safe and loved. It makes me happy that I am able to provide such a wonderful place for them.

Ah!!! Life is good.

After 3 years of waiting for hubby to change an electrical outlet in the kitchen, it is finally done !! Now I don't have to jiggle the plug in the outlet to get an appliance to work.

My son and his family came over for Mother's day, presenting me with not one but 2 kittens ! Their cat had kittens in March. Son knew I wanted kittens but hubby kept saying no. Son wanted Mom to be happy. Hubby can't very well say take the kittens back. They are both orange and white but different markings, one male and one female. I plan to have them fixed when they are old enough.
