Storms and new paint

We got our first snow on the 26th of October; snowed for about 3 hours.

It has been a very busy couple of days here.
Yesterday Dave just got wood into the front porch and unto the wood rack and not 15 minutes later the winds kicked up and it started to rain cats and dogs; sideways rain. That went on for a few hours.
Couldn't really do any more outside work during that so we pulled everything out of our small bathroom and started to paint. Light yellow walls and a very nice light cream on the window and door frames. They were both Behr Premium oops paint, $5.00 a gallon can. Sure looks  different from the lavender.
Today we will do touch ups; let dry and then hang the medicine cabinet back up, shelving and move all the towels and etc back in.



 I picked up some material for a new curtain a week ago; that sure has gone up in price. The cottons that used to be $1.99 are now $3.99 a yard. I found some with a $1.00 off a yard. I still to wash it before i sew the curtains up.
This bathroom had no shelving at all when we moved in. There was no place to put anything with a pedestal sink to boot. We replaced the sink 2 years ago.

I have been crocheting socks lately. 






One of our older daughters came up and brough her 2 daughters, she got them ready for a Hollween party while here.
