Snow Days

I am still working on my basement project. So many things have made this project linger… and linger… and linger… until it feels like it will linger… “to infinity and beyond!”

And then we had the BIG snow!

Scout, our cat, in the snow.

The Crepe Myrtle tree in the snow.

And we got snowed in…

…but we had family snowed in with us… so we played in the snow and made a snowman.

We made snow cream and a snowman from the leftover snow.

Then I went back to work and put more primer on the doors and shelves to the bookcase, on a very warm day, in the snow.

Priming doors and shelves in the snow.

So the work continues.

A tip I would just like to add… if you are having to paint inside in the winter time, and even your cooking starts to take on the odor and taste of paint… try this tip that was given to me from a wise older man at our new church:

1. Cut an onion in half and leave it on a shelf in the refrigerator or on the counter. It absorbs the paint odor and then you can throw it away.

2. At the area you are painting in, have a big tub of water open to the air.

I tried both with success, but the onion was the most amazing for removing the odor.

“God thundereth marvellously with His voice; great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend. For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of His strength.” Job 37:5-6
