Keepers of the Home meeting and other doings...

Good Morning dearies.. 

Just a short post this morning just to say hi and let you know I am still about.. 
You probably wonder what on earth I am doing as I have not posted for awhile.. 

When we came back home from summering at the cottage we decided that there were some things that had to be done before we 
could get on with regular stuff like putting in the winter's wood although Terry works on that here and there.. 
Just for a break, I think.. 

We are replacing all of our appliances and although that sounds like it is just a day or so of work it has turned into a week and still not finished.. 

Last post I told you about moving in the refrigerator which needed cupboards completely removed and the stove which needs a new range hood because of the color.. 

Then the dishwasher had been in there for over 20 years and not used so it was a joy to get out, believe me.. 
Now, the dear man is needing to buy fittings and we haven't started on the range hood microwave yet which needs even more cupboards removed.. 

The floors which he began before we moved for the summer are still not done so all in all we have been in a bit of a chaos, if you know what I mean.. smile..
We make time for enjoyment.. grin.. 

He and the boys took last weekend and went to New Hampshire to the races while I stayed home but took Saturday and left early in the morning for a farmers market in Fredericton.. 
My friend had her veranda trimmed for Fall and I had to laugh at her upstairs window.. 
Books galore.. 
I just can't relate.. LOL... 
We had a fun day, though and came home with lots of fresh produce.. 

The men all returned safe and sound on Monday night and had a wonderful time.. 
I think Terry kept his grandsons amused.. smile.. 

We had some lovely company on Wednesday for supper and then away off to Bible Study.. 

Then last night we had a little impromptu Keepers of the Home meeting.. 
We just wanted to get together and chat about the coming year and discussed how we would like emulate the Proverbs 31 woman in our prayer life for our families and our fellow Keepers of the Home.. 
We need to uplift each other in prayer.. 
These are perilous days for the family and we need to support each other in prayer.. 

We had a little snack that some brought in.. 
Lovely coffee cake and cookies.. 
Thanks so much, my dears.. 
This is the link for the dip we had.. 

We also made a little Fall Crock pot Potpourri which I found HERE.

Well, I must get on with my day.. 

I don't usually post in the mornings but I am up a bit before Terry so thought I would get it done for now.. 

So happy you dropped by and so good to hear from you all.. 
Hoping things will get organized here soon.. 

The Keepers of the Home are planning on visiting Kings Landing during the next couple of weeks, too.. 
That should be fun.. 

Take care, dear hearts..

  10. We bought a new refrigerator a few years ago. Certain height as there's a cupboard above it and to one side. Measured right and it fit. I'm sure you'll enjoy your kitchen soon. ! I have a girlfriend who uses the dishwasher aa her rack to dry the dishes, as dishwasher isn't a built in one and not sure if it works. It ia good to hear from you again. Really! God's blessings to you!
