It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

A shed. That with a lot more hard work might turn into a little rustic country shoppe...

I've been a slacker in blog world here lately. It's been house work in the mornings, shed work all afternoon, then making dinner and crocheting (Christmas gifts) in the evenings for weeks now. All of this has taken a bit of oomp-a out of me and anything that I think you all may find interesting... So simply because this shed is my life at the moment, I'm sharing photos of the window that JD is working on. Windows are interesting, right?

He carefully measured, then made the cut and is moving one of the studs. I helped. Okay I handed him thingies and tools...

He asked for me to bring the sledgehammer from his vehicle. I was so proud that I found it in less than thirty seconds and rushed back to hand him my find. Turns out that I handed him wedge back hammer instead (whatever that is). He then went to retrieve the other hammer for himself. 

Paint, paint and more paint and I still have the ceiling to go. Yay!
Hopefully he'll finish the window today and I'll be painting again. I can't wait to be finished with all of the painting so that I can begin to decorate and fill the shed with the goodies that will make it a shoppe!

Yes, this is JD crocheting a scarf for himself. I love the color of yarn he chose. And yes, real men DO crochet. He asked me to show him how, I obliged and after a couple of days practicing on some old yarn, he had it down and was ready for his own yarn and needle. He's doing really well I have to say. I'll try to get a couple of photos here soon of the things I'm working on.
Okay, that's been my life for weeks now and today I'll start the grind over again and one day in the not too distant future things will come together and my dream shoppe will happen.
I pray...


  1. My husband used to crochet, haha. I like that dark grey yarn.

    1. Also, I've nominated you for the Liebster Award on my blog. Most of the blogs I like have already gotten it, so you've done it before and don't want to do it again, I understand.

  2. Very exciting! It's coming together :)
