Last evening was very full.
First Mom hosted us for a delightful
lasagna dinner. It was so good and
we were having interesting discussion
when we looked at the time.
We were to be at the church for a
Then as we headed for the door the
cell phone rang.
My friend, Sue, was already there and
was wondering where we were.....
Well, we moved as quickly as we
could and got over there.
Out came the paint and we got busy.
Painting the final project in the new
We are finally going to get to use this room
on Sunday. So construction remnants had to
be moved to storage, counters cleaned and
many other things done.
It was successful.
The room is looking great.
What is left to do is decorate
and clean the floor.
Today I will go out and look for a
twin sized quilt
to hang on the wall.
Pastor Mike will make a frame to
go around it.
We have one on a quilt hanger
in the main dining area
so it seems a great way to get
a lot of impact while
continuing the country theme.
These photos are of
a former work night in this room.
That was the night we painted the walls.
But it is a huge room!
It took a lot of us working together
to get it done in one evening.
Don't worry, the "pepto" color is the
primer not the final coat.
It all works well together and is
looking so much better now.
I'll be back over there today.
I'll take a photo of it as it is now
and the little nursery to show you.
The little nursery is nothing special but
it is cute for sleeping babies.
Meanwhile while we were
finishing up in
I kept popping out into the Fellowship Hall
to watch it change into a beautiful site
for a Ladies Tea.
Mrs. Rabe is hosting our
3rd Annual Tea.
She just has a knack for decorating.
I told her that her display table
looks like a magazine photo.
I meant it. It is warm and cozy.
The pieces she is blending together work
so very perfectly.
I'll try to get photos of that tonight at the
tea when all of the lights are low and the
It will be amazing!
Thanks, Mrs. Rabe, for all of the hard
work you put into this each year.
And I also have to tell you that
Emma Rabe, of
spent a couple of hours on her
hands and knees spot treating the
carpet in the fellowship hall.
You see, the building we are renting
used to be a carpet store.
There is a beautiful white carpet
in our fellowship hall.
Not very functional for
a space dedicated to food.
Dear Emily was devoted to making
it look as great as it could for this
And, bless her heart....
she will be at work and will
miss all of the fun.
But, between all of us
MUCH was accomplished and
everything looks amazing.
Tonight will be great.
Sunday will be great as we get to
use our new serving area!!!
From the First Christmas Tea in
Working together to complete worthwhile
projects is fun. Thanks to my dear church
friends for the pleasure.
