Another Tuesday, another bit of trivial, tidbit info (complete with photos). It’s been a crazy few months and amazing to think that summer is on its way out. Trent has been with our pastor and a couple of other guys the past 10 days for a little R&R. Each year they head to Canada and “rough it” while spending their days fishing. Trent loves every minute of it!¬†*Photo credit goes to our pastor and friend, Mark Beeson*


While I did work on the house alone during these days, do NOT be fooled. 1. I absolutely love working on things alone for a few hours each day. No music. No conversation. I wouldn’t love it all the time – but it’s pretty awesome for a few days. 2. After I finished my actual job (real estate) and working on the house each day, I found many ways to entertain myself. Lots of dinners (I eat pretty well when Trent is gone…shhhh) with friends/family and some solid Netflix. Just a couple of photos to prove I was not at home inhaling a pint of Ben and Jerry’s (I only did that ONE night)!



Even though the rain changed much of my painting plans, I did try to get in some painting every day. Sadly, the rain won most days. Weather Р1  Leah Р0

This will be week 3 of working on the garage painting…let’s hope that it is the last week! Now that Trent is home, he’ll be back at the electrical. The main panel is hanging and ready to have all the wires run and breakers put in. It will be so wonderful to be able to check off both the garage and the electrical in the very near future!

As always, thank you for following along! Have a wonderful week!
