Hello! Thanks for dropping in for a visit. We're already enjoying our front porch, but it's not done.. yet. Today Richard is doing the painting of red and white. Tomorrow he will put the finish on the wood deck. We've decided on the lightest color transparent stain so the wood will show through. I'll show you how that looks when it's done. Our latest decision to make is - do we want to put a porch swing back on the porch, OR.. some Adirondack chairs.. OR.. some white painted rocking chairs? What do YOU think?
Yesterday my grandson Hayden found a couple of feathers, I think it was from our chickens. He came to me and asked me if he could make a quill pen from it. I said sure, and his dad carved the tip for him and scraped out the pulp in the tip so ink would fill in the tip. Then I told him where I kept my ink, in my secretary in the living room, and had him bring a notebook and I demonstrated how far to dip the quill into the ink and how to use it for writing. Then he sat at the table and proceeded to write with it. I was so impressed!! What a neat kid!!
Awww.. I love this kid. I have decided that I will let him use one of my fountain pens and sit with him at the table and show him how to write cursive.
Our new chairs are being delivered today, we're waiting for the deliverymen. Then I'm off to swim. It's a perfect weather day, a good day to plunge into cool water and drive home with the sunroof open and all the windows too.. the best way to dry your hair. LOL!! Have a super day, and thanks for the visit. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
