Mama always says, "Finish what you started..."

So I did! YAY!!
I saw a post on this blog that i follow called The Pleated Poppy. (Two reasons i love her: 1. She has the job I only dream of. 2. Her name is lindsey) She did this really awesome painting that was kind of abstract but really colorful and somewhat cheap! Likey Likey!
And, although it took me FOREVER to finish it, I finally did TONIGHT! My figures couldnt type fast enough! I was ready to blog about finishing it when i was buying the paint!

Ok so here is her painting....


And here is mine....
Close Up...
I loved that I could mess up and it was ok, b/c its art and it doesnt have to be perfect. AND, it was an easy way to make all my miss matched colors in my shamble of a living room go together!

Now i just need to figure out where to put it... Oh... I'm so excited!

I am a NEW woman!

We have finally gotten internet at home about a week ago and Nathan hooked up our dryer on Saturday. We have traveled forward in time about 6 years or so...now, all that's left to move into the 21st Century is a dishwasher, cable, and a microwave. Well, not so much the microwave... that's kind of by choice...I just wanted to see if I could do it. I kind of prefer not having it. I don't think Nathan feels the same way.

We are continually making progress on the house. Nathan has gotten closet organizers in all of the closets, our washer and dryer have made in the same room and are hooked up! I have three things hung on the wall. Our name has made it on the mailbox (as enforced by the US Post office :/). Nathan was kind of surprised it fit. I've got skill...

And finally!!! WE FINISHED PHASE II of our Chicken Coop!

Yay! Let me introduce you to the crew...

Eugeine starts at the top. Stumpy is behind the water jug. Ruby (because of a baby and the color of her feathers), Caesar next (I was thinking salad), then Hollandaise is the next white one, and then Beefy... b/c she's the biggest!

Now all we have left to do is create a fenced in walking area for them. Nathan is also thinking about starting to build a deck on the back of the house this week. I think his goal is to sit outside on his deck by the end of summer. I can handle that.

What's next for this NEW country wife...
