Another quick post

We have our Hughes Net back up and running again!
Went out on Sept 1. Storm had passed then we lost phone and our internet! Go Figure!
So lots of catching up to do on my fav blogs and other sites!

Been busy here with more home stuff.
Have the walls in living room and hall all painted!
Was a job and a half!
Take all stuff from walls, move furniture around, fill the holes , sand, cut in then roll!
Hard to see the real color in pics but not as bright as it seems in these pics.
The walls look so fresh and pretty. Sort of hate to drive a nail in them!
I am taking this opportunity to deep clean as I put things in new spots!

Want new doors for the closet at end of hall.
Just not sure which ones!
Still have to paint some of the trim but things are coming along!

DH got the entry way flooring down!
Looks so much better then the old flooring that was there.
A few more things to do before we call the carpet man !

Here is the sweet pickle & pepper relish I made.
Yummy in salads, on hot dogs or burgers.

Been getting some storms with more hard rains.
We are very wet here but no bad flooding yet.
So sad to see those suffering flooding north of us and the fires in Texas.

Please take a moment on Sunday to remember and honor all those lost 10 years ago on 9-11-2001.


  1. I'm glad you are "connected" with all of us again. It looks like you made good use of your non-computer hours, though. yes....Sunday is a very sobering day for our country.

  2. Good to know you are managing the wild weather. How wonderful is a freshly painted room?! Yours look terrific! So do those pickles for that matter. Keep safe and dry, Ann :-)

  3. It's good to have you back Lola, the weather has really wrecked some havoc this year hasn't it? Your home is coming along beautifully, and the relish looks sooo good!

  4. Welcome back. I missed you!

    I like your new wall color. I love the smell of freshly painted walls.

  5. Hi Lola, Been there.. Out of power.
    Mr dh bought us a large generator a few years back after we had a long black out. They sure come in handy.
    There has been a lot of nasty weather this year all around us.
    Fresh coat of paint always make me feel good. Your relish looks yummy.
    take care and have a great weekend.

  6. Great post. Yummy relish. I definitely have 9-11 in my heart & prayers.


  7. Oh your relish looks so delicious! Really like your blog. Glad I found it!!
