Oh Boooo .... winter is coming. I don't enjoy the cold weather. I need to move to Florida where it's nice and warm. It's supposed to snow today and I've been 'bummed' out about that. I've soooo enjoyed this summer. I think part of the reason I've loved this summer is because the heat never bothered me. I enjoyed being out in the sun, loved yard work, and even enjoyed just sitting and soaking up some rays. In the past, with all of my extra padding, the heat was unbearable for me. And now I'm going to have to deal with wearing long johns, padded coats, boots, gloves, and a hat. And if you've ever seen me in a hat, it's not a pretty sight! Oh well ... that's what I get for living in Utah, right?
Here's some terrific news! My hubby has been on contract work with his new job and was anxiously waiting to be hired with benefits. He was given a job offer last Friday with a large increase in pay, three annual bonuses, and all health benefits paid for by the company. And that includes the family too! What a terrific company! I'm soooo impressed. The paid health benefits is like getting a raise.
We've lived in our home for over 10 years and my master bath was in desperate need of paint. We have 12' ceilings in the bathroom and I spent the weekend painting it. It was a lot of work but turned out beautiful. I'll take some pictures and post. The color is soft suede ... seriously, that's the name on the paint can, but when it's on the walls it has a greenish cast to it. I'm using accent rugs and etc. in burnt oranges and golds. It's lovely! I have two ledges in the bathroom that I had to climb on. I'm a little nervous of heights, but I did it. You would have been so proud of me. All I have to do is paint the base boards and I'll be done. It's a great feeling to have that off my check list of things to do.
Well, my lunch is up so I must get back to work. Have a lovely week!
Well ... I'm just an ordinary granny with 28 beautiful grandkids, 7 fabulous children, and 1 fantastic husband! My fantastic husband and I met while both serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, in the Gulf States Mission. This mission included Mississippi, Louisiana, part of Tennessee, and most of Arkansas. While in the mission field we were committed to the service of the Lord and of course no dating was involved. But two dates after our missions we were engaged and married two months later. Life has been wonderful with my Lynn! While raising our 7 children I helped supplement our income by teaching vocal lessons, babysitting, and doing hair, all in the comfort of my home. I'm currently employed at World Joy, a nonprofit organization improving health and education in the Atiwa District of Ghana, Africa. Now, we have been called to serve as full time Public Affair Specialists for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Africa South East Area, living in Johannesburg, South Africa for 23 months. We are beyond excited since we will have each other as full-time companions 24/7. It REALLY is a wonderful life!
