A little breather...maybe?

Feels so good to be done the painting which kept me pretty busy last week. Oh, let me clarify... that is, the painting I was doing for someone else. She actually called this evening to tell me her girls were very happy with the job...yay!! Earlier she wasn't so sure she liked the one feature wall, which she chose to have painted a nice warm brown, so I'm happy I don't have to repaint!

May have a pretty short week at the clinic as well since Herb (x-ray tech) is away for two weeks and couldn't get anyone to cover for him this week. There will be a few x-rays that are outstanding, which may keep me busy for another half day, but other than that I should have some time for myself. Shhhh - don't tell anyone! Hopefully I'll be able to sit down and do some serious thinking about the next step of our renos...being...uhmmm, not quite sure :) I have some projects in mind for outside as well.

Course, all that could change should we suddenly have a new grandbaby (due in a few days). I'm sooo excited! Had the funniest dream last night. Heather had a boy and when I asked her the name she said, Matthew Dididi (dee-dee-dee). Not wanting to hurt her feelings, all I could ask was, "How do you spell that?"! Had a good laugh over that one this morning. Though I really feel she's having a boy, I highly doubt she'll name him Matthew Dididi. LOL

Saturday Les worked hard breaking down the chimney. I felt bad that I wasn't really much help and since Dustin went to the city with some friends, he carried all the rubble out of the basement himself. It got a little hairy when half the chimney broke off and stayed perched at the main floor level. Les had to pry it loose, catching his finger between the prybar and sledge hammer...OUCH!! Right now we have our very own skylight - all the way from the basement!! I guess that'll have to be the next fix-up since we probably shouldn't leave the hole there for too long - never know what kind of company we'll get comin' down the chimney space! I'll try to post a few pictures tomorrow.

Finished off the week with a nice get-together at the Back 40. Always relaxing. Thanks for hosting Glen & Anna. Here are a few pictures.

Now, off to bed!!!

Maybe I should hire you to repaint my house too!
My gut feeling is Heather is having a boy too. But who knows, she might just surprise us with a girl. Could definitely use some more of those in the Thiessen family!

Hey Sarah, thanks for checking out my blog. And no, we did not drop of the earth- lol :) We're just going to a different church now, so yeah i guess I do see you guys less :) But last time we stopped at FEBC we noticed that wow- is it ever growing, that's awesome. And hopefully this blog world thing will help keep us in touch. Good luck with your renovations, we haven't started ours full fource yet, only done the siding so far. I'll be checking for updates on Heather's baby arrival :)
