What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Bye Bye Blue

Good morning!

The sun is not shining outside, but it was shining on my plate this morning.  Here is my sunny side up egg on the Christmas china I found for nearly nothing at the Salvation Army a few years ago.  I'd wanted Christmas china forever but refused to spend an arm and leg on something that would only be used for a few days a year.  This set of plates, cups, saucers, creamer, and salt and pepper shakers made my heart go pitter patter when I spotted them.  They're cheap; I won't even lie.  But I love them and that's all that matters.

Tom is busy finishing up the painting in the stairwell.  A few years ago I went a little lot crazy with paint colors.  I liked the blue for, oh, about 30 minutes.  I waited a few years to change it because it is so difficult to paint all the way up to the second floor ceiling from the stairs and I didn't have the heart to ask him to repaint again so soon.  On Thursday, Lacy and I started painting the foyer.  Yesterday Ryan came to help me paint the hall upstairs.  And last night Tom started on the stairwell.  It looks lighter and brighter and I'm a much happier person now.  I also repainted over the candy pink in the powder room.  So, if you ever saw it and liked it, I'm sorry.  If you hated it, you'll be happy to know that it is a much more relaxing color now.  If you didn't care one way or the other, oh well.

My project this morning is to mount some photos to put on the wall in the powder room.  I figure it this way; if someone is using that tiny room, I basically have a captive audience.  So why not allow them the privilege of gazing at photos of my adorable children while


Then it's on to baking.  Lots of baking.  I love baking!!!

I have 893,478,544,523 things I want to do today.  How about you?  Are you ready for Christmas?

What color did you use? The Blue was okay but I'll have to admit that he Pink was NOT my color! Hope you'll be happy with your choice this time!
