Easter Sunday was lovely and warm. I remember so many times all dressed in my new Easter dress and hat when I was a child and having to walk through snow to get into the church. Not much fun in new white patent leather shoes that I didn't want to ruin.
We had wonderful services at our church, I so enjoy singing the old hymns like The Old Rugged Cross and He Arose. I have yet to learn one of the contemporary praise and worship songs that even begins to compare but that's a rant for another day. (I'm showing my age here) During the last song when the trumpet was playing, Funsize was at the piano and then the organist started to play the organ I had goosebumps! We don't normally have much organ music now so it was a real treat.
Son, DIL, Mr. D, Miss T, FIL and the Hubs and I came home and had a nice ham dinner. I put it in the crock pot on low the night before as it was quite big and it was delicious. Nothing like nice thick ham sandwiches the next day too. Sometimes things taste even better the next day.
Things continue to move along at the lake house. As you can see everything had to be stripped right back to the studs. All that beautiful knotty pine went in the dumpster. :o(
DIL and I picked out a few things that will be needed at some point and that was fun. We have somewhat similar tastes which makes it nice. This is what the kitchen cupboards are going to look like. We wanted to keep it rustic looking so chose the oak.
This is the hardware we chose. I think it is rather unique and rustic looking too.
This is the counter top. It's not granite but a pretty darned good looking laminate.
We also picked out flooring, windows and some other things but I guess I forgot to take any pictures of them. The mold is all gone. The air quality people gave us a clean bill of health. The electricians are there this week replacing all of the wiring. Even that got destroyed. I guess you have to expect that when you have Niagra Falls going through your house!
I continue to make a fool of myself at church..........you must remember the sign I wore all day.......... Well this time was worse. I was hurrying and unintentionally tucked my skirt into the back of my panty hose and didn't realize it till we got to church and I took my coat off...........I tell you, I am not fit to be out without a leash! Thank goodness the only ones who got flashed were four ladies and they very discreetly looked away when I made the discovery. I could see they were trying not to laugh, bless their hearts!
The good news is the signs have been removed from the ushers pew and put on the wall above it! Sigh.......
Thank you all for you kind comments on Skipper's Story. Although it was hard to write in some ways it made me feel better and gave me some closure. It's alway hard losing them, especially so young and so unexpectedly but I believe it was meant to be. Whether you have dogs, cats, horses or no pets at all I felt you all understood. Bloggers are the best, especially all of you!!!!
