Midlife Make-Over

A Cup Of Tea
 
I have now entered into the midlife kitchen make-over...
(Twilight music playing)
 
Now during this make-over no one has offered us a mini vacation,
while a whole crew comes in to do everything!
 
No,  just ourselves and our son and daughter in law,
also our oldest grandson.
 
We have the ceiling painted flat white,
 and most the walls done in bright yellow.
Sanding and painting my cupboards, a very pretty color
 called Chinking. But my island is done in a fresh
green color called Laurel.
All the side of the cabinets are done in a wains coat.
The top rail is in a satin Red color.
The style is really a French Country look.
 
This is a huge project,
 but it will be warm ,and have a cozy feeling when done!!
 
Ok, the moral of this story is this:
When in the thick of things on the first day of
this make-over. I was so exhausted and overwhelmed...
My sweet Amy brought me a cup of hot steaming
delicious Earl Gray tea, with cream and sugar.
It just about brought tears to my eyes.
I needed to be refreshed.
 
Let me encourage all of us,
We are our brothers keepers!
A cup of tea and and a encouraging word goes a long way.
 
We are blessed to have a son who can do all the precise cutting
and fixing almost everything:)
Blessings, Roxy

  1. You just made me laugh and cry Rox. How is it all going as of today? I want to see "before and after" pictures. I can't wait to see it all done. I love your pretty picture of tea pot and leaves. Bless Amy for the tea ..."even a cup of cold water in My name...." . So glad you are getting the make over and the help...even though I know the process is almost more than a person can cope with. I'll give you a call a little later.

    Love ya,

  4. Awe, you guys are all so sweet! I am so blessed to be apart of this awesome family. Roxy and I always encourage one another to step outside of that box and do something bold. I however would have loved a mini vacation! This has been a lot of work, but I know in the end it will reap it's rewards! The colors are so rich and warm you all will be amazed! (Thank goodness my hubby will be here tomorrow for the finishing touches- yeah for Barry)
    Love ya Roxy!
