Our Home...

Second bathroom is done ~ passed inspection last week! Yeah!




Happy Summertime!

Evenings are so wonderful this time of year...
We can go for long walks,
everyone is out bicycling, or running, or walking their dogs,
and playing at the parks,
 or just hanging out with friends.


We are no exception! Yoda is looking at me right now
thinking
"Walkies???"
We may go in a bit... :)'
(that's Yoda and his tongue!)

Tonight I thought I'd share our finished bathroom
and a few rooms all cleaned-up
in the house.

Happy Father's Day!

I know I've shared this photo before, but it is a good photo of my father, Gene.




I am a veteran garage sale, tag sale,
flea market shopper.  

On Saturday mornings, once a month,
during my high school years living in the town of

Shingle Springs, California 
(one of the little towns that sprung up during the Gold Rush era),
my father and one of us kids
would load up our old GMC van
to take our trash to the El Dorado dump.

Afterwards, Dad would always take
the helper to brunch somewhere in Placerville.
It was a fun treat to help my father, quality alone-time, really!

Often, we would also swing by 
the flea market being held
at Placerville's Fair Grounds.

Years later, I realized where I get my love of flea markets
 and decorating.
Not really a where, more a "whom" ~
My Dad.

"Have a Nice Day!" ~ a little sticker found on this yellow post on my way back to the car after Easter service a few years ago.


For weeks and weeks now
I have been praying and asking God for an answer...


You know when you want to hear the answer you WANT to hear
but
God isn't answering you, or is saying NO
and
you whine, you plead, you beg, you keep praying
but
the answer is still unchanged?



Well...
I had to get to this week, this evening.
(Saturday, June 20th, 2015)
Tonight, Hubby and I were watching a movie that we

have known about now for over a year,
God's Not Dead,
and the answer came to me that
we had to be stripped to the bone,
just like many of the apostles did in Jesus' time...



Matthew 4:18 ~ While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, 
Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, 
for they were fishermen. 
19 And he said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him.



Most of you don't know about our troubles
and I've certainly kept it that way as I didn't want to burden you,
nor was it fair to you to do so.
But, now I feel I can share this with you all.
We are having to sell our house as my husband
lost his job 9+ months ago
and we no longer can afford to keep it
without risking it going into foreclosure.
So...
it is on the market.
