Church Pew Signs...

Hello out there! Considering the weather up here has been so terrible, you would think that I would still have plenty of computer time, but alas, I have been very busy despite the unusually cool temps and MAJOR rain!
Camp starts two weeks from tomorrow, and the grounds needs a bit of sprucing up, so I am painting cottages! Weather permitting, of course. We decided to take the day off today, it is kind of rainy this morning, and the housework has severely suffered in our absence. So this is giving me the chance to catch up on not only chores, but computer time and other odds and ends.
Last week, I did complete two new church pew signs. I posted about these recently, and have a couple up in my Etsy store. These were custom pieces-specially requested with these specific verses. The photos aren't great, but I was in a tear, and the lighting wasn't great..but you get the idea...


So that is what we have been up to! I am still struggling with lack of employment--like so many others right now. Cody is healing well from his recent oral surgery, and Peter is back to work, so we are very fortunate right now.
Thanks for visiting!

Ahh, the dog days of summer.....

You all know how goofy Brodie is...this is one thing we never get sick of--her ridiculous sleeping positions. She is like a pretzel. Needless to say, Harley NEVER sleeps on anything other than her tummy, or her side...so this was a real shocker to us when she came home with us two years ago!If you remember, when we brought her home, she was only 5 weeks old, cause her mother had kicked her and her siblings off. Brodie was already sleeping silly like this, at 5 weeks old! Hard to believe we just passed our 2 year anniversary with her!
Remember this??


Also wanted to add that Cody had his oral surgery on Monday, to expose teeth #6, and #11. (Eye teeth) They were coming in crooked, one in front of this front teeth, one behind his front teeth. The Dr. exposed them--that is a very kind term, huh? And attached chains to them. The chains will be incorporated into his braces, and the teeth will be pulled straight. One of those things that had to be done! He is taking it pretty well--the pain meds are helping!! We are officially on summer break, as Cody is out of school, and I am out of work! I lost all three of my daycare jobs in a week's span. My new position fell through, and the other kid's parents have decided to send their kids to preschool.. It was very unexpected, and left me feeling more than a little bit stressed and heartbroken, but I have had wonderful support from family and friends, and I hope that new opportunities are coming my way! Please keep me in your prayers, as I don't like not working!! Thanks to all my friends (you know who you are) who came to my rescue last week!


Have a great day!!
