Man, I hate being right.

First words out of Husband’s mouth this morning after “Good Morning” — “You were right, I am not going to finish all the living room before Christmas.”  I just said “I know.”  I am not the least bit upset or surprised.  It is looking so perfect, there is no way to rush this quality of craftsmanship.  Plain and simple.  He said “I know you are upset.”  Nope, not even a smidgen. It is so beautiful how could I be upset?  The end where our tree will go will be finished and the white wall on the opposite end will get finished after the festivities.  It is to be a HUGE wall of book cases and all the books are packed and in a storage facility so no rush.  Here’s a little peek.


I didnt realize how much I loved oak until it was up on this end of the room.  More pictures when it is all finished.

I have soap to deliver today to a local shoppe that has been selling my soap since I began in 1999.  Yep I have been at this a long time.  And believe it or not, I sold out of Farmgirl Clean™ almost as soon as I put it on the website.  So I have to make more and more and more!

I have aprons cut out and I will do quite a bit of sewing today as well.

On Friday we have tickets to see The Shreveport Little Theater production of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” !


One of our all time favorite books – we are excited!  A few other homeschoolers and the children’s librarian from our local library are going to meet up.

Gotta run, Husband is hooking up our new, improved, faster, modem, thingy.  See you all again soon…with some recipes and pictures of aprons!

The room looks wonderful . Just decorate the unfinished shelves and everybody will love it.
Have a happy day–


Your bookshelves are going to be lovely!

Hope that the play is marvelous. I have always loved “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” and read it to many a classroom over the years.

Have been a lurker here for some months. You are one amazing gal!

Oak is gorgeous. I know you’re going to love your room when it is finished. Why rush it? It will be gorgeous as it is.

I can’t wait to see your aprons. I’m about to begin my Christmas sewing of aprons for my friends and neighbors. Also, I have a couple of surprises for my little girls!

Your husband is a very talented craftsman! That will be absolutely beautiful when it is done!

Gorgeous cabinetry and i like oak as much as ever!
Could you send him over to my house when you’re done. I simply need a couple doors hung. My hubby just isn’t the type.

I love being right. It happens all the time 🙂

Your bookshelves look beautiful. My husband also just finished redecorating our living room!!! yaa I like your site.
