"Anyone can have one kid. But going from one kid to two is like going from owning a dog to running a zoo." P.J. O'Rourke
Quote of the Day
"God never meant man to be a purely spiritual creature. That is why He uses material things like bread and wine to put the new life into us. We may think this rather crude and unspiritual. God does not: He invented eating. He likes matter. He invented it." ~ C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

A Face Lift
It's a work weekend at the cabin. Our bunkhouse, which really isn't that old, needs a facelift. It seems that when we made it, we made it a little TOO airtight, resulting in mildew growing on the inside walls :-( So, today has been spent gutting the inside of the bunkhouse, and then putting in new stuff - as in, a beautiful new floor (it was just cement), new paneling and some new vents in the ceiling.
The taking apart...
then the putting back together. How many people does it take to lay a floating floor anyway?
Not done yet, but looking mighty nice :-)
It's not quite done, but I think you'll agree that it looks quite lovely already!
Hi! I'm Barb, but you can just call me that Crazy Mom. I have been married to the most wonderful husband in the world for 22 years. We have eight children, one dog, two bunnies and two hamster. Six of our kids are adopted, two are biological, I'll leave it to you to figure out which are which. All of our pets are adopted.
I love Jesus, my husband and my kids - in that order.
Other things I love, in no particular order:
- dark chocolate
- Mumford & Sons
- the ocean
- my hammered dulcimer
- my French horn
- dancing in the driveway
- singing in the car with the windows down
- reading really good books
