Sad Day Today

We are getting ready to go in to Vegas for my grand daughter's father in law's funeral.  I really don't like to go to funerals, but then who does.   Funerals always remind me of my first husbands death and how hard that was to go through. We felt we needed to support Jason and Renee at this sad time in their lives.  So sad, he was only 52 years old.

On another note I forgot to post some pictures of a project that Frank and I did a few weeks ago. 
I had been wanting to paint some accent walls for quite some time now and we finally did it.  Frank did most of the painting.  I painted below our bar around the edges and Frank painted the rest.  This is an arch in our kitchen and bar wall.
Frank also painted the arch that leads to our entry way out of our living area.  It really did make a huge difference and warmed the room up.  It was quite a chore as the first paint was entirely the wrong color and had way too much purple in it.  Paint sure is tricky and we have had our share of problems with the wrong colors.  I think I am color blind.  So this turned out to be a bigger project than planned.  An unplanned trip to Vegas to Home Depot to pick out another color.  Finally we ended up with what we wanted in the first place, but Frank had to paint everything twice.  He was suffering for several days afterwards. Actually, after I painted the trim, etc. I was hurting too.  Old age really does suck!!  He really can't do much without it hurting his back.  Now we have to get ready to decorate our home for the holidays. The outside is the big job that only Frank can do.  I'm not much help in that department. I can't believe that it is that time of year again.  Sometimes I just want to bag the holidays and escape someplace. LOL


  1. nice blog.. have a view of my blog when free.. .. do leave me some comment / guide if can.. if interested can follow my blog...

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother in law.

    I like the painting you did. Your floor plan looks similar to ours (especially the kitchen lay out), only we don't have arches. I wish we did. We have been debating doing an accent wall...personally, I want to put up a faux rock wall behind our TV and husband's bar.


Hi, thanks for dropping by my blog. It is a place for me to let my family and friends know what is happening in the daily lives of Frank and I. I appreciate your comments.
