Valentine Countdown Challenge, Day 19

Under 20 days now until our loved ones arrive -- this is getting downright scary. I still haven't done any of the big stuff like moving furniture around. But it's been good getting so many gifts finished and wrapped and so much decluttering (as well as decorating) done. I'm thinking that having all this done will make the furniture-moving much easier when the time comes. We'll see! Today I:

* Made a bunch of beaded heart and icicle ornaments with my granddaughters

* Acquired another component of a gift -- not wrapped yet, however

* Did a bit more decluttering and organizing

* FINISHED an embroidered pillowcase and started another

* Planned the upcoming week's tasks

And that's it for Day 19!

    You are really making progress! How long will your family be visiting? Is this the daughter you visited on your train trip?

  2. Hi Patty,

    Yes, this is the same daughter we visited out in Nevada in Oct. She and her husband and baby have been in the West Indies since mid-November on a mission building project. Lord willing they will be with us about a week, possibly a bit more, before returning to Nevada.

    We are trying to set things up for them to see as many people as possible while they're in our area. As you can imagine there are many people who want to see them too. We are also having our family "Christmas" while they are here.

    Thanks for your encouragement!

    God bless,


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
