Slowly getting it done!

I'm getting things back into place at a slow pace, ha!

This is the dining room before. The walls were white at that time and had carpeting.

This is the dining room now. I haven't put the captain's chairs back as yet. They will go on either side of the hutch as before. Also, the walls now have a peach color to them.

This is one side of the living room with the carpet. I had gotten a new sofa and love seat at that time. The walls were then painted with the peach color.

I changed a table so Sarah, my cat, could get to her nap pad behind the lamp table. A picture of my neighbor, Alice and I is on it. For her 50th birthday, I had some "fashion" shots done. She and her husband are great friends I have known since the 1980's.

This is the other side of the living room. It had the love seat, but I changed it around when I had the floors done.

This is the before picture. I forgot to put it first! I still have some more things to do, but I have time to get them done when I can. My new floors surely make the difference when it comes to easy cleaning!

Cody and Katy

My neighbor put out traps to catch Ferrel cats.  These two babies came up onto my back patio. My vet says they are about five weeks old. Their eyes are still blue.

I guess their mom was one that got trapped! My first contact with them was frightening to them. After all, they probably had never seen a human! I just used a towel and placed it over one at a time when I picked them up.

I have a wire "playpen" sitting on a vinyl table clothe in a rectangle shape in my den by my low set windows. Believe it or not, they are using a litter pan (in a cardboard box lid at the end of the pen.) 

Next to the litter pan I have a rubber place mat that I put their food on along with their water. I have kitten food that I mix with kitty milk (from the vet.) They lap it up in seconds! So far they have been good to not knock over the water bowl. They will drink from it after a time of wrestling with one another! 

And of course after eating, using the litter pan and a romp with one another in the pen, they go right to sleep!

You can see about how little they are. They are now letting me hold and cuddle them without fear. The dogs are doing well to go up and look at them through the pen and go back and lay down. Sarah (my 14 year old cat acts like they aren't even here, ha! Sarah will lay in my lap and watch Cody and Katy play, then gets up and goes out of the den.

Flooring's Done!

Even though the floor is done, I haven't gotten everything put back as yet due to waiting to get the proper coverings on the bottom of the chair legs, etc.

Flooring's Done!

Up from the Grave He Arose!

His death is like no other. While upon that cruel cross, what made His death different is He took upon Him the entire sins of humanity past, present, and future. Those who come to Him for forgiveness of their sin, He will not cast out, but save them to His Eternal Kingdom! Praise GOD that He has things to come for His own that man can not now comprehend.

"Up from the grave He arose

with a mighty triump o'er His foes.

He arose from a victor from the dark domain

and He lives forever with His saints to reign.

He arose, He arose, hallelujah Christ arose!"
