Is it Fall yet?


I finally got Dave to fix the broken door that leads from the kitchen to the garage. A couple years ago one of my boys, I'm not naming names but it starts with Ja** locked one of his brothers (M***) out of the house and M*** pushed on the door so hard, it broke out the door jam and the trim in the kitchen. The only way you could keep the door closed was to dead-bolt it. After Dave got the door fixed I knew I would have to paint. I've been wanting to put some color on my walls for some time, but have been too chicken to try it. I wanted a golden leather color so I tried this color. I have never heard so many complaints from my family about a paint color! It did look a little orange in the morning, so I painted a big pumpkin face on it before Zack and I put primer all over the wall. I found a little more golden (sunflower) color to paint it, so when I get the trim and doors painted, I show you what it looks like. Dave picked up a new door to replace the bi-fold door you see here in the picture. About 8 years ago, two boys (Ja** and Jo**) were throwing my hand weights at each other, someone dodged or ducked and the weight went through the door. It has been covered ever since with a picture of Jesus and a scripture.."I will go and do the things the Lord commands".

I think you should leave the pumpkin through October. You'll get a lot of comments...
