Brandon, Rachael, Beth and I just got back from Jamie’s (faith2faithintx) house. She just lives a couple of miles down the road, or at least she will until the end of August. They sold their house.
She’s selling furniture in preparation for the move. Brandon and Rachael now have a dining table, 6 chairs, and a lighted china cabinet in “layaway”.
I also got a Bombay chest.
I splurged and bought me an old copper “boiler”. I have always wanted one. It’s the antique collector in me that wanted it.
Brandon wants her husband’s Harley, but I don’t think we’re getting that!
And she had the best smelling candle burning in her kitchen.
Jamie is even sweet enough to hold onto the stuff for us until Aug. 27. That gives Brandon and Rachael time to rearrange their storage unit to put more stuff in it.
They already have a bedroom set that they bought from one of the doctors at the animal hospital where Rachael works. The doctor was buying new stuff and just wanted to get rid of this, so she let them have it all for $200! They have a huge bookcase headboard with smoked mirror and secret storage compartments. They also got a dresser and a chest-of-drawers that has jewelry storage. The set is oak. All they have to buy is the mattress and springs.
Did lots of yard work yesterday evening, after it cooled down some. Steve mowed and edged. Brandon climbed up in the tallow tree and cut a bunch of limbs. Then he climbed up on our porch roof (it is actually a trellis) to trim the vines growing up the side of the house. Brandon and Rachael trimmed a huge bouganvilla we have in the front yard. So the trash pile waiting for pick-up next week is rather large. We also moved firewood to a new stacking place. We sure won’t need that for a while.
It’s just too hot here to do all that during the middle of the day, if you can avoid it.
I got an email from TJ. She found a Panera Bread in Colorado Springs where she emailed a post to her blog. She said the sky is as clear as a bell and Pike’s Peak is beautiful.
I’m cooking steaks for supper after church tonight. More later.
