It's been awhile since I posted. I have been busy. Let's see what I have done.
I love to crochet and I have made several things.
neck scarf and 3 men's ties that I didn't take a picture of.
dragon scale fingerless gloves. I made 3 pair of these.
I am working on a dragonscale hooded poncho for my granddaughter now. I have just started it and it's not far enough along to look like anything. I will post a picture when I finish.
I have also been busy recovering the cornice boards and lambriquins in the living/dining area.
This is the fabric that I chose. I liked that it had several colors but was clean and modern looking. Right now I am using a teal blue but I wanted to be able to easily change to red or green.
It's hard to see but this is the before picture.
In the picture above the sconces are upside down. We noticed this while cleaning up after finishing. It took minutes to flip them. LOL leave it to us to install something upside down.
We also changed out the sconces and light over the table.
You can see the old light over table in this pic above. I hated that light.
I love the new lights. Here is a pic after we fixed the lights.
Did I ever tell you we took the mirror down behind the bed? I hated that too. LOL Now it looks like a headboard. I am thinking about adding a word or saying. Dream? Kiss me Goodnight? Turn over, your snoring? Just a thought.
We had a great meal Thanksgiving. My daughter in law outdid herself. She is a wonderful cook.
Brian fried the turkey and it was very good. Would definately eat that again. (that's me sneaking a bite of ham with brown sugar glaze. mmmm)
The star of the day though was the dressing. OMG, it was wonderful. I could have eaten the whole pan.
Let me back up and show you some pictures of us watching Brian cook the turkey.
Then there was the pillow fights.
Someone couldn't get off their game long enough to talk to everyone.
The dogs were lined up for their loving.
Lori was happy that most of the cooking was done and she got to sit down and rest a minute.
Logan was looking for something. Don't remember what, but he was looking.
Last year we were waiting on a blizzard, this year we were sitting outside enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. It was a wonderful day. I just wish that Mike and his family could have been here to enjoy it with us.
Yesterday around 6:00 pm there was an explosion and fire at one of the rv's in the resort.
The owner was badly burned and had to be air lifted to the nearest hospital. Six people here onsite were injured trying to get him out.
Our resident hero, Dave was treated for smoke inhalation, burns and cuts trying to assist in getting him out. Dave also assisted the fireman in locating and removing him.
When you think how small the inside of an RV is, you wonder why they couldn't find him. Smoke is a terrible thing. Not only does it weaken you and destroy your lungs, your visibility is zero. They could hear but not see someone less than 3 feet away.
This is the hot water heater.
This is the back of the refrigerator.
At this time, we are not sure what started the fire. The hot water tank is under the refrigerator and that area looks like where it started. I don't know why the microwave was removed. I guess it could have caused the fire. I wish I had pictures of all the heroes that helped and tried to help this man in need. It is a brave thing indeed to run into a burning building. My heart goes out to all that risk their lives everyday to help others. Just a reminder that it's all in a days work for our brave firefighters and policeman. Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
UPDATE: Sat. evening
The fire department has determined that the fire originated at the refrigerator. The owner is in ICU in serious condition.
UPDATE: Unfortunately the man did not survive. Prayers to his family.
