Sorry for the absence...

My laptop is currently at the computer doctor, so I haven't been able to keep up on blogging. I hope to have it back early next week. So, you will all have to wait with bated breath as to what my next post will be. I know what you are thinking..."Does she have some exciting news? Maybe a new recipe will appear. Or perhaps she is just stringing us along." It's pretty much the latter. Who has time to sit and think up posts?

Farewell till next week when I get my laptop back from the doctor with a big bill. Too bad there isn't computer health insurance.

We Believe

We Believe
Words and music by Nathan DiGesare and Dan Scott

We believe in the Father, who created all that is
And we believe the universe and all therein is His
As a loving heavenly Father, He yearned to save us all
To lift us from the fall . . . We believe

We believe in Jesus the Father's only Son
Existing uncreated before time had begun
A sacrifice for sin, He died then rose again
To ransom sinful men, We believe

We believe in the Spirit who makes believers one
Our hearts are filled with His presence
The Comforter has come
The kingdom unfolds in His plan
Unhindered by quarrels of man
His church upheld by His hand . . . We believe

Though the earth be removed
And time be no more
These truths are secure
God's word shall endure
Whatever may change, these things are sure . . . We believe

So if the mountains are cast down into the plains
When kingdoms all crumble, this one remains
Our faith is not subject to seasons of man
With our fathers we proclaim
We believe our Lord will come as He said
The land and the sea will give up their dead
His children will reign with Him as their head

We believe
We believe

I had a great blessing delivered today. Pastor Phil's dad does a marvelous job of refinishing furniture. They have collected many pieces over the years and they shared one with me today. They gave me this beautiful dining room table and chairs. It is absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Betz.

I'm going to learn how to recover the chairs. I was thinking of doing the chairs in different colors. What do you guys think? There are ten chairs! I will put some of them in storage since there isn't room for them all in my apartment.

The Rest of the Tour

The kitchen is the next room on the tour. I love how open my apartment is. I have great cupboard space and the color is called "Orange Essence."

I have laundry in the doors to the left. The second door on the right is my spare bedroom. I'm not going to show you that room. It isn't decorated very nicely and that's where all my clutter is at the moment. It is also home to my piano.

And since I finally made my bed, I thought you would like to see my bedroom next.

And now my bathroom. I just love the decorations in this room! I love the decorations in all the rooms, but I get more comments about my bathroom than any other room.

Well, thanks for stopping by. Next time come in for a cup of tea and some cookies or something.

A Little Fun

Over Labor Day weekend, Stacey and her kids came over for an evening. The Callisons were gone, so we thought we would have a little fun. Here are some pictures!

We decided to swap their living room and dining room. Yep, we even set the table.

This picture is just for fun. Stacey is tired of being taller than all her friends and I'm tired of being shorter. Also, we didn't plan to wear the same shirt that day, it just happened. Thanks for a fun day, Stacey!

Living Room

Some of you have never been to my home, so I thought I would share some pictures of my living room. I rearranged it a bit yesterday, so those that have been here, can see the new look. Okay, so I only moved three things, but I think it made a difference.

I thought I had hidden the tags, but there they are under the pillows. I just bought them and hadn't removed the tags yet. Just in case you can't tell colors, the walls are a light green, the couch is gray and the pillows on the couch are burnt orange, green, purple and brown. I took of the tag because I decided I like them.

This shot shows the antique secretary at the edge of the couch. It's a family piece that is pretty special and absolutely beautiful. Once again, sorry about the tags.

This shot shows my new rug that has all the same colors at the pillows. I think I want to get another one to go between my living room and kitchen area.

This shot is to show off the area in front of my window. The table and clock are more family pieces. The hat on the old suitcase was my grandpa's, so it's pretty special.

This is the last shot of the living room. The cute kids above the TV are my niece and nephew. Thanks for visiting and stop by again. If I make my bed, I might show you my bedroom next.
