December Fun~Not

December 2015

I’m thinking there are books about everything happening backwards. Most people have a garage on their home, and then some turn it into a nice recreation or another room of some sort. When we bought our house, the previous owners had turned the attached garage into a room, put in a fireplace and then built another garage that isn’t attached. However, they didn’t do the best of jobs. They didn’t plan well at all, they didn’t raise the floor to match the rest of the house (maybe a good thing after all), and an important thing they left out when they did the fireplace was to first put in a footer. So, that is where I get to the part of my story about things happening backwards. After these 30 plus years, the fireplace and chimney weight was pushing the outside wall off the house foundation. So, we had the fun of tearing it all down, brick by brick and then replacing the wall. Plus side is that it will be turned into a garage again. One room minus and one garage a plus, I think. 🙂

So this is my month in photos for sharing over at Mona’s Picturesque  (be sure to scroll down on her page to find the link of sharings on there by people). Christmas did happen in there, but not a big celebration this year since we were in a mess and the kids had other places to go so it worked out for the better.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas (and did not have to deconstruct rather than construct)…haha…and so far that the New Year is treating you well.

Pop on over to Mona’s to see how others spent their December.

April Collage for Mona's

Didn’t really have much going on this month. My car needed brake line repair so haven’t been out much to take pictures in a while. Thanks to the hubby though who finally got my car fixed. Bless his heart even with his illness, he just keeps plugging along and has been able to work on it since the weather turned nice this week. I am thrilled to have a vehicle again.

I was able to use hubby’s pick-up (I’m short and I don’t really like using it much ~ the climbing in and out) to visit my son’s Church on Easter Sunday. It was an inspiring, joyous message that morning…Praise Jesus. He stayed after, and I drove home the long way and found this covered bridge that I’d been wanting to see. It was such a beautiful sunny day, and after being sick most all of March with the flu, I hadn’t been out so I tarried along the way for a nice drive in the country.

Happy 1st of May….and finally we’re heading into warmer weather. yay!!!
