Catching up...

It's been a week since I last posted on my blog. I must apologize but I have so much going on right now that I'm finding it hard to find the time to sit and write something.
I have finally finished painting the main bathroom. The chair rail has been put on and tomorrow I will try to get the wall paper on.
We have also had a vent cut into the hallway floor and the ceiling of our family room to allow the heat from our new pellet stove to heat the upstairs. Hopefully that will help offset the heating bill this coming winter. They say we're in for a very cold winter this year; not looking forward to that!
Last night we had Bible study so I spent the day getting ready for our group. Apple Crisp made from freshly picked apples went over very well with coffee afterwards.
I am still having trouble with my shoulder-collar bone area, so I went to the doctor and he is sending me for x rays and physio therapy. I find whenever I slacken off from the work in the bathroom I feel a little better. Hmmm, I wonder what that means!
Last Sunday morning my hubby had a preaching engagement down in the country at our former church and on the way home, we took some pictures of churches along the way. I will share those pictures in the near future. Hubby will be preaching this coming Sunday as well so I will have a chance to get more shots.
I remember one Sunday morning when our youngest son was home from university for the holidays and he was accompanying us to the service that day. He commented on the number of churches we passed along the way. He said that we must be on PEI because every mile there was a church by the side of the road. He's right! One doesn't have to go very far on the Island to find a church. It's a comforting sight to see those steeples off in the distance.
I especially love the little white churches with their steeples reaching towards heaven!
I love bird houses too; especially church bird houses. Sometimes I buy them and sometimes I get one and paint it. Here are three of my favourites.

Have a lovely day everyone and God bless you!
