Working at Jenny and Kevin's today.


John and I went up to Jenny and Kevin's new home at about 10:00 and we left at 4:00.
We were priming walls in the Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Laundry Room and small hall. The paint on the walls from the previous owners were hideous and it took 2 sometimes 3 coats of primer to cover it! The primer was Valspar and really thick too!! The rooms look so much bigger and brighter. Can't wait to see the beautiful colors that Jenny and Kevin picked out on the walls. Megan, Jenny and their friend, Hiliary were cutting in with primer, rolling primer and painting the halls with a creamy coffee color. It looked great. I had an issue with my right hand blewing up like a balloon. I have alot of nerve damage from before my spine surgery last year in that hand, but I've never had that happen. I guess I'll just have to be careful. I went outside and planted the 2 mums Megan and Ken had given Jenny and Kevin for a housewarming gift around their mailbox. It is really shaping up! Jenny and I were planning the gardens out front also. We are going to make the front gardens look really wonderful next year. She knows nothing about gardening, but she will when we are done. We are going to put in a veggie and herb garden too! What fun we'll have!!

I've just never liked painting and I've got a whole bunch of painting waiting for me to do in another few weeks after Art is done hanging all the doors. You are wonderful to help out even with your hand giving you problems.

Kay, I don't mind painting. I just love seeing the color on the walls. It just changes a room so much when you paint and I love all of the color choices today!

So nice of you and John to help the kids, Sherri.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
