Eggs Eggs and More Eggs

Good morning everyone.  After a little break in laying eggs for us, those nice hens have started again.   

Can you smell that spring is on it's way?  Well we do honestly have a while before the temps will be warm everyday, but it's coming. 

 
I sure hope everyone has a wonderful day and weekend.

Birthday Son

Oh my.  Twenty years ago today we were blessed with the birth of our son.  What a wonderful blessing it's been. 

 
This kiddo has brought us more joy, happiness, love, and laughter than we could have ever imagined.  Of course we've also had some adventures, scares, and accidents.  What parent hasn't though?  It's been so worth it!
 
 
He wanted me to make him a cheesecake. 
 
He's so smart and talented.  Recently he learned the wood working method called Intarsia.  He has made a lot of beautiful pieces so far. 
 
 
I came home from work the other night and this beautiful raccoon was hanging on my living room wall.  I love it. 
 
Happy Birthday Matthew.  Your dad and I love you so much and we are so thankful to God for you son.

Barn Door Headboard Hubby Built With Love

Barn door headboards.  You've seen them all over Pinterest.  I've seen a lot of variations as far as design and height, stained or not.  I told that sweet hubby Builder Man of mine what I wanted and showed him some of the pictures.  That's all it took.  He loved the idea and said that he'd make us a new headboard to look just like a couple of barn doors actually taken off a barn, size and all.

 
He attached a very old set of rusted hinges but we are still thinking about the rusted door pulls or handles. We're not sure what we want them to look like yet.  

 
The cedar chest at the foot of our bed was also made by him years ago.  I am so blessed that he is so talented.  I've always been able to just draw something or tell him and he can build it. 

 
We like them hung slightly slit in the middle instead of touching.  That makes the two doors look imperfect to me and is probably the way they would look closed on a real barn.   

 
Did I mention that he also gave our bedroom a fresh paint job?  This is our new favorite color, it's the color we chose for our major bathroom remodel last year and it just seems to go so well with any stain finish of wood.
 
It is Glidden Olivewood but my Builder Man just gets any paint chip I bring home color matched by the computer at his favorite paint store.
 
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my headboard.  This was my Valentine's gift, I really think he likes me.

Happy Valentine's Day

Love is a powerful thing.

 

 
And our beautiful Rufus Jack would like to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day.  He's already 1 1/2 years old, can you believe it!  If he could reach each and every one of you, he'd lick kiss you and rub his little cold wet pink heart shaped nose on you.  Then he'd even let you scratch his belly.
