March Brings Changes to the Home Place

Good evening friends.  Hope you are all having a good week thus far.  All of you who had all the snow and are now experiencing flooding my heart and prayers go out to you.  Hear in GA, we have had some rain, but also some above average temps. these last few days.

Birds have been singing, and flowers are beginning to show their beautiful blooms.  Signs of Spring are everywhere.  And for this I am thankful. Why?  Because..........
This was the way our house looked everyday for the past week.  Yes, old windows torn out, and a gapping hole until the new one was quickly installed.  Had it been really cold, the house would have been miserable.  But thankfully with the warmer temps. it went smoothly,  The old black windows are now gone, ,,
And the new white ones have taken their place.
They are so pretty from the outside as well.  Can you tell I am so proud of them?

I was most excited to be getting new windows in the sunroom/dining room as the windows out there was just single pane glass.  And wouldn't you know it,,,, the window company that was making the windows made and sent our contractor the wrong size windows.  They didn't realize it until Monday just before removing the old windows.  AND  the new slider door did not get ordered.  So we had already taken down blinds, curtains, etc, for the windows to be installed.  This is the way it looks now.
They put a rush on the windows and a special delivery so this time next week if the weather is good we should have all new windows and this part of our home improvements should be done. Slowly but surely we are marking things off our to do list.  Week before last we got the new roof on so that is two major projects done.   Oh,, but there are so many more  projects on the horizon.  I just love all these lists.  Do you like to have lots going on around your home place??
It always seem with warmer weather on the way, we want to spruce up this old home place.  So thankful Mr. P. is such a good handy man and not scared to tackle a home project.
All of my prayer warriors please remember Darbee Rae in your prayers.  She is having some digestive issues and we are waiting on test results.  She was so excited to spend the day with me today and was so pitiful when she got here and had an attack and didn't feel like staying.  All you Grandma's know how it makes us feel when our grands are not feeling well. 
Once she got to feeling better we played with Beanie Boos all afternoon.  Guess that was more fun than working on Santa ornaments anyway. Yes, getting  an early start for my fall show.  But they are too cute.  Can't wait to share them with you.  I know,,,, should be working on rabbits but I only do one show and it is in the fall,. 
Well, that's about all I have to share this evening.  Take care and be blessed until next time.
