Copper’s Day Off – Top Three Edition

The top three highlights of the day.

1 – We hung with the grandkids while Corin went in for a prenatal appointment. Grandbaby #7 will be here soon! I wonder if he’ll be as big of a cuddle-bug as his older brother? I hope so!

 Snuggling with the not quite two year old


2 – We ordered new carpet to replace our poor old worn out can’t-even-be-cleaned-anymore carpet. Just thinking about emptying out furnishings (like the china cabinet) and all of our closets gives me the vapors. Seriously! What great motivation, though, to finally get rid of stuff that’s been hidden in the deep, dark recesses of our closets for way too long. I have big plans for moving my fabric stash into the master bedroom closet once it’s been cleaned out, which will lead to cleaning out the schoolroom closet, which will lead to….you get the idea! Looks like my summer project will be a major reorganization of closet space. Sounds good to me!

Carpet Samples

We chose the sample in the lower right corner.


3- A frozen yogurt date with Copper. My treat!

 FroYo with Copper

I had a great Monday, sharing Copper’s day off with him. Hope your week is off to a great start, too!

    Hi Cheryl,
    What a sweet picture. When is Cornin’s baby due?
    I dread getting new carpet next year in the back half of the house. way too much stuff to move.
    What a handsome date you had. Copper not the yogurt. LOL We went to a new frozen yogurt place here the thee night. Pinkberry. It was good.
    Have a wonderful day.

  • When we had our carpets clean last spring, hubby insisted on moving EVERYTHING out of the family room and living room.

    Fortunately, our china cabinet sits on the section of the living room (our dining area) that has wood floors… but moving everything out and then moving it all back in was a pain.

    Of course, the reward for us was nice, clean carpeting and for you will be NEW carpeting. Yippee!

    Stephanie says her quiver is full with five children so I guess I will have to depend on Christopher and Melissa for more grandchildren. 😉

    • I am really not looking forward to all the work of moving everything in to have the new carpeting laid, but I am very much looking forward to the new carpet. I’m trusting that it will make the labor involved lighter knowing the reward at the end.

      Oh, Brenda, isn’t it sweet to have our grandchildren around? And isn’t it amazing to know that since before there was time God knew each and every one of them? I’m amazed at His love and provision!
