Painting the kitchen...

creates chaos for daily life! Hoping to have the kitchen painted and scrubbed down from ceiling to floor and returned to order in 2 days...

The Laundry room is overflowing with paint and supplies!

The kitchen table is home to all the small appliances and what-nots.

With the refrigerator and oven pulled out of their cubbies ~ our small kitchen feels even smaller...

It's like walking through a maze.

A nudge here and a little shove there and we still have a functioning kitchen.

Hot water pot and the coffee grinder are out temporarily to get the day started...

Such an inconvenience, but I am SO thankful for God's provision of this house and the ability to make it our home. He is so good!

First fall storm

The Wind
by Robert Louis Stevenson

I saw you toss the kites on high
And blow the birds about the sky;
And all around I heard you pass,
Like ladies' skirts across the grass

Oh wind, a blowing all day long,
Oh wind, that sings so loud a song!

I saw the different things you did,
But always you yourself you hid.
I felt you push, I heard you call,
I could not see yourself at all

Oh wind, a blowing all day long!
Oh wind, that sings so loud a song!

O you that are so strong and cold,
O blower, are you young or old?
Are you a beast of field and tree,
Or just a stronger child than me?

O wind, a blowing all day long,
O wind, that sings so loud a song!

The picture of our backyard doesn't really do justice to all the leaves blown everywhere (and covering everything) following our first real fall storm...
