Last Weekend, Work, and a Bookcase Makeover

Birthday breakfast leftovers ~ Lifeofjoy.meLast Saturday Tiffany and I made a double batch of blueberry baked pancakes, some for breakfast and some for breakfasts throughout the week. Unfortunately before I finished my delicious breakfast, my stomach turned sour. :p

When it clung on for several hours, I tried drinking a stevia sweetened ginger ale. Nothing. I tried some chicken broth but it tasted bland and did not help. I don’t remember what all I tried, but none of it helped. Finally, after taking some acetaminophen, it lessened a bit. But we decided better not risk spreading something this yucky at church, so we stayed home. Thankfully by Sunday night I was back to normal.


Bible ~ Lifeofjoy.meMonday I started to read the Bible through chronologically in ninety days. A week or so ago, I asked my friends on facebook if anyone wanted to join me and I was surprised to get several who wanted to. I created a closed facebook group for us to encourage each other and more readily communicate with each other. I ended up with fifteen friends joining in on the fun. It’s been good so far. I remember last year when I did one, Carrie, the group leader, prayed for us each week. It really helped me; I could feel those prayers. So, I’m following her lead and praying for this group.


My flower garden is coming along nicely. We had a bit of rain, like several days worth, so I haven’t needed to water it until yesterday. I have to admit that those pretty flowers bring me more smiles than I ever thought they would have. I’m so blessed and thankful for all the hard work, time, and money that went into them.

Each week I buy another bag or two of the shredded rubber mulch to add to the rectangular flower bed. Tiffany was a dear heart and put down the last five bags for me!!! I used the weedeater to trim up around the outside of both gardens and also cleared the path to the porch. I got a bit red in the face and a tiny bit sunburnt too. But I caught it before it got bad and it doesn’t hurt at all.

Then as if we hadn’t done enough work already, Tiffany and I rearranged her bedroom furniture. She has some heavy pieces. I shocked her with how strong I really am. :) She had a battle with an inexpensive bookshelf and finally got the better of it. In the end, since it was completely empty and firmed up with screws, she decided to paint some cherry tree branches with blossoms on it.

Here it is before painting.

Before painting ~ Lifeofjoy.meThat’s Tiffany’s dog, Shiloah. She’s a schnoodle.

Here it is after her handiwork.

Painted Bookcase ~ Lifeofjoy.meShe painted some of the sides as well, since she knew she wouldn’t see much of this after the books were put back in it.

Painted bookshelf ~ Lifeofjoy.meYep, it was a busy day! We didn’t get done everything we wanted to but we got a lot accomplished any way. We’re calling it a win! :)

I’m looking forward to spending some time with my mom at a local antique mall today. She had a birthday this week and has some birthday money to spend in her happy place, so I’m going to wander around with her. :)

I hope you have a great weekend. Until next time, God bless,
