Long Time No Blog

I knew it had been awhile since I had been on my blog.  I didn’t realize that it had been since January 23rd.  Wow ~ you all probably thought that I forgot about it.  Well, to be honest, I have not forgot about all of you, but I have been busy.  It has been a rough winter for us.  I have been busy and since this is the first time Cameron has ever been in pre-school/daycare he has been sick non-stop all winter long.  He starts getting better and then for some reason or another he gets sick again.  It has definitely been a challenge to say the least.


Some good news to share with all of you is that my follow-up ultrasound that was done on my right ovary turned up nothing.  I was so relieved and gave all the glory to God for those results.  I also had a follow-up appt. on the spot that they found on my lung and my pulmonary doctor said that she is 99.9%  sure that it is a benign nodule that the majority of Ohioans have on their lungs.  She said that there is something in our dirt here in Ohio that creates these nodules on our lungs.  Since I don’t smoke, never have smoked and don’t ever plan on smoking with no history of lung cancer…..she said that they will just continue to monitor it and watch it for awhile.  So, I was relieved over those results as well.  God is good!!


So, do you remember my previous post?  My sister gave me this cupboard and she wanted me to re-finish it.  I was happy to re-finish it for her and these are the results.





Big improvement ~ don’t ya think?  I thought it looked so much better.


I also wanted to take a moment to share a few other things with you.  I just recently purchased an old scale from my Mom’s friend Sara.  If you haven’t checked out Sara’s Herbs & Everlasting then be sure to do so.  She has changed her shop up a little bit and is now selling lots of antiques.  She has plenty of great goodies.  Here is my scale that I purchased from her.

Here is a close-up…..




Gotta love the rust!!  I know that when she posted the scale on her site….. I quickly sent her an e-mail and told her that I wanted it.  Now I just need to find a stud to put it in.  I will be sure to post pics of it after I have found the perfect spot.  Stay Tuned!!


My last item that I wanted to share with you was this beautiful chair.  It came from my Dad’s side of the family.  It was found in an old barn many many years back.  It was in awful shape, but my Dad kept it and stripped the varnish off of it.  I plan on re-finishing it by staining it with Dark Walnut stain and then displaying it in my bedroom.  Don’t you love it?  I just think it is so pretty and the detail on the chair is just prim perfect.  Let’s take a look ~ shall we?




It was in pretty bad shape and you can see where there was some water damage, but I think once I stain it then it will be as good as new.  Wow ~ just look at that detail.


Well, stay tuned for the make-over on that beauty.  I am sure it will be amazing!!  Hope you all have a blessed week.  Until Next Time…..  Lisa
