Some new art for my walls

I found this picture that looks like an old sign in Kirklands and fell in love with it. Of course I got it on sale too. Half price it was $40.00 ! I know it was a splurge but I love it. It is hard to tell from the pictures but it is quit large.I found the little metal cross to put in my hallway at Old Time Pottery. The cross was on sale for $5.00.

For my mom

Mom, the first is a picture I did a while back. The bird one is one I was working on today. I am not quite finished with it.

Haven't forgotten I have a blog. I just haven't been in a blogging mood lately. Today was a very nice day. I got up at 5:00 to make lunches and got everyone on their way for the day. I went back to sleep after they left. I got to sleep till 9:00. It was very nice. I decided to go buy some jeans today. I was excited because they sell my favorite Rider jeans at Walmart or so I thought. I hate when they change things. I tried on about 20 pairs. Finally I found some I like. They are a little long so hopefully they will shrink a bit. They only had one pair in the store. So if they shrink a bit and I love them I will be going to other Walmarts to find them. I also found a cute pair of shoes. I have to go back and exchange them though. I picked up one shoe in a size 7 and one in a size 7 1/2. I tried on both sizes and some how got them mixed up. I am not big on clothes and shopping but there are certain things I love. I love my one pair of Riders that fit perfectly(they were a bargain deal at a thrift store), my big baggy robe (which I am in mourning over, I can't find it, I don't know how I lost my robe),and my flip flops from Old Navy (they have to be Old Navy they are the only ones I found that don't hurt between my toes). Yep I should be on the cover of Vogue! I did buy a new purse at a thrift store a few days ago. It still had the tags on it. I thought it was a bargain for $5.00. After a hard day of shopping I stopped and got a sub at Subway to bring home. Since I have been home I have playing on the computer and watching tv while eating my sub. Life is good. One more thing John put new panels in my kitchen cabinet doors. The people who lived here before us cut out the panels and replaced them with chicken wire. Not really my taste so I am so glad John fixed them.

We have been feeling better lately. Yesterday Michael drove down to the Cumberland Farms. I told him as a reward he could get a slurpee and any snack he wanted from the store. You know he picked a big bag of donuts. That's my boy! Today he drove to and from one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Yes, we were in traffic and everything and I lived to tell the tale. He is doing so well. I am very proud of him.

I cleaned a house today. I didn't go to Bible study. I knew I couldn't handle doing both. When I came home I crashed. I slept for about three hours. I know my body is fighting sickness. Michael stayed home today. Please pray he gets better soon. He is still running a fever. He really doesn't want to miss school. It is hard to make up the work. Chris is still doing fine. John still has a cough. He went to work the whole time he was sick. He is such a hard worker. I really appreciate that about him.
Things have been busy around here. John was sick for about three weeks and is just now starting to get over it. Michael is not feeling well today. So far Chris and I are fine so far. I will post more soon.
