Some more {Happy & Pretty}

My dh has been really working hard on fixing up things around the house.  He power washed the back deck and then the front porch in preparation of re-staining and doing some painting too.

This is our front porch in process.  That greenery you see are some grape vines and bamboo.

Our peaches are doing well too. Can't wait to harvest them!

This next picture is a project that has been in the process for a while.  It is still not quite finished but it is really beautiful.  My dh made it from some oak we had.  It is really pretty.  He plans to put padding on the pre dieu and upholster it too.

Thanks for stopping by!  What are you up to this summer?

God Bless

Knit and Read

joining with small things

Catching up on my Church History and trying to finish a socks

So some of my children have read this books in their studies and I wanted to firm up my knowledge of church history and since I am a History major it is no hardship.  I am finding quite interesting.  I started a notebook to answer the questions because that is how I retain information.  The socks....they are another story.

So these are socks I started in January I think.  I got a great book for Christmas ~ A Sock Knitter's Guide to yarn.  It is really interesting and informative.  It also talks about using the yarn you have to make strong socks.  So I thought I would give it a try and then ran into some snags along the way so it was put down for quite some time.  I have picked it back up and pushing through.  I told my daughter these were going to be eclectic socks because I keep changing how I am knitting the leg.

I will try to remember to post and link up when they are finally done.  I am itching to move on to something else so I am using that as a motivator to get these done!

Have a wonderful weekend!  And thanks for stopping by.

God Bless,
