We are not a photo taking family. I usually forget, or ask one of the chuns to take pictures and they forget or something. Anyway, this is about all I have until the official photos are produced by the official wedding photographer. It was a lovely time and we are so grateful for all the work our new in-laws went to making it a very special day.
The worst part of losing my blog list is that I felt like I had lost a whole lot of friends. I live in a tiny, rural town where the majority of people have lived all their lives. They are surrounded by extended family too. so it's difficult to break into groups, or circles of friends. I have many acquaintances here but only one person who has visited me in my home and I in hers.
My blog friends, however virtual they may be, are my favorites. They share what they're doing, what they're making, what they're thinking and such. I enjoy their senses of humor, sharing their pain, praying for them, and getting to know them. Every day I'd make the rounds of all my friends to see what's new and say hello. I do my best to leave a comment even if it's just "Thanks for sharing," or "Keep up the good work." I want to let my friends know I'm reading and appreciate the time and effort they take to share.
Now that I've gone through the hassle of unexpectedly losing my friends I'm going to keep a list on paper of all the blogs that I can remember and any new ones I find so if this happens again I'll be able to restore my list easily.
Please! If you're reading this and have your own blog, or know of one you'd like to share with me, leave a comment. I'd love to include you or a friend of yours in my circle of friends. It is my hope that someday I'll get to meet in person all my lovely blog friends!
It's been a busy couple of weeks around here. I finally got some painting done, although it wasn't the walls yet.
My bedroom has suffered from a bad case of piles for as long as I can remember. My goal for the past year has been getting all the piles off the floor. I want to be able to sweep easily.
Earlier in the summer I asked my hero, TopDad to build me a bookcase to fit between the two closet doors. He finished it before school started, last month, but it took me awhile to get around to painting it.
After three coats it was ready to install!
Including a special shelf of all my Korean goodies.
I've painted the new front door also, but it's not installed yet. When it's done I'll post the before and after pictures.
Now for the ugly:
I took the trash and recycling out to the alley and as I walked back my left ankle rolled under and I came down on my right shin on the edge of the cement. Just call me Grace.
We had a visitor on Friday, for the high school homecoming:
Yes, that's Dandylion, the college student.
And finally, an early morning moon heading for the western horizon:
Inch by painful inch, I'm making progress on my home. Each little step fills me with joy and gratitude as I get my house in order and make it beautiful.
