Better late than never!

Well, I did mean to post last week but life got in the way as usual! I had two teeth taken out the 21st which wasn't bad but the antibiotics really got to me. So here I am late but here! We had some terrible storms the 15th and 16th of June. We lost a few limbs Saturday night and whilst in church a horrible storm hit but we kept right on worshiping! It sounded as if the building would blow apart! When we were in fellowship after church that this had happened. The wind blew limbs into the fence around our home, flooded the yard and brought down a large oak behind the house and damaged a lot of the trees including a couple at the church across the street from us.

We also had some beautiful sunsets!

And Jack got me two early birthday presents. The little recliner is in the hobby room as I am sure you can tell. It is so comfy and just my size!
He also got me a Russian Orthodox cross I had been wanting.
This week we were able to finally buy some decent living room furniture and get rid of the old sofa. This new set sits up a bit higher making it easier for Jack to get up and down yet I am also still comfy! Sylvia Joy has claimed her favorite spot! Both pieces were in the clearance area and we got them both for the price of the sofa had it not been on sale.

Jack also hung my curtains for me in the dining room. Next is the big window in the living room and the downstairs windows will all have their curtains. And we got colors approved for the inside so we are preparing to paint!
As for crocheting, I am working on a cross tabletopper in cream for someone.
And about to finish up angels for someone else. I also am doing an afghan but she wants it to be a secret and even she does not want to know the pattern until finished so that must wait!
As always, Sylvia is loving her naps!
So thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings.
