INSTAFRIDAY Episode #4 & a linkup

Okay guys, it's time for InstaFriday again. Sorry for taking last week off but I'm telling you, life has been crazy! 

First off, Johnny had to go out of country for a week and that left me and Hannah at home with nothing to do. Okay so we could have done some major Spring cleaning but we didn't. BTW, doesn't Hannah have the prettiest blue eyes ever?? She gets them from her Daddy!

I did decided to paint the kitchen while he was gone. I've been trying to figure out what color since our kitchen is very small and has a sloping ceiling. My living area is a light turquoise so I didn't want whatever color I painted it to clash so I went with a buttery yellow. I'm also incorporating the yellow in the living area to tie it all together. I'm not showing the kitchen yet because I'm saving that for my Home Tour Kitchen Edition. ;0)

Last week we had guests come to visit from Florida and some missionary friends came down from Budapest. We had a great time visiting but it was crazy busy. We had revival all week in the Croatian church and the Gypsy church. 

 We have a Saturday "Sunday" School of sorts in the village and it's only for children up to 12 years old. They are such special little guys and it's a privilege to teach them about Jesus.

 This is my neighbor dog! Yes, he looks cute but he's a menace! Last week I watched him cross the street from the neighbor's house into my yard and begin to bury, in my flowerbed a giant red hen that he had apparently decided to sent to an early demise. Are you kidding me! I ran him out of the year and then tried to go next door to tell the neighbors but the gate was locked. So, I grabbed the leg of this big clucker and chunked her onto the neighbor's trash cans. Moral to this story; you can't trust blonds!

Finally for this InstaFriday is my special early birthday gift that my honey brought home for me from his trip. Remember a while ago when I posted about my Old Black (Maroon) Book, well I've been wanting a new Bible but I've not wanted to give up the comfort of my old Bible. It knows where we're going before I even start and it seems to just flip open to that verse. It's comfortable and loved but it's getting old. So 2 weeks early my honey (who can't wait for birthdays just like me) gave me my new Bible. I love it! It's a Church Bible and the quality is top notch. It's top grain cow hide and it smells like the very first pair of Justin boots I ever bought when I worked at Motts 5-10. They smelled like heaven and my new Bible has the same smell. I know that's silly but I was so proud of those boots and worked hard for that $100 so I have fond memories of that smell and my Bible smells just like those boots! 

Anyhow, that's InstaFriday for this week. I'm hoping you'll join in with me this week!!

  1. Glad to see you back Tori and love all the details of your life lately. Can;t wait to see your new color scheme. And that Hannah is just a beauty, inside and out!! One of my friends had a Bible that was falling apart and her husband had it rebound for her! I had never heard of such a service for all of us who love our Bibles. I have three that I have kept notes in and love each one! Our pastor has told our congregation that it is his custom to preach funeral's from the Bible of the deceased! Well I told Marvin to make sure Pastor Steve has all three of mine!!lol

    1. Arlene,
      Pastor Steve will have to learn to juggle to preach from all of your Bibles. That's a net idea though.

  2. I can understand your annoyance at having dead chickens being buried in your flower bed. The buttery color looks pretty. Will be anticipating the kitchen redo photos. The other night on ABC network, there was a Diane Sawyer special on the Sound of Music - 50 year anniversary. I didn't found out until too late and will watch it online when it's available. I thought of you when I saw it. Here is the link in case you didn't know about it. You can view it in about a week according to the web site. http://abc.go.com/shows/2020/listing/2015-03/18-2020-031815-the-untold-story-of-the-sound-of-music

  4. The doggie looks a little annoyed. :-) But I am sure he caused more annoyance than he received. Hope he finds another place to do his deeds than yours. Looks like a fun week!

  5. Those little faces! Seeing them makes me want to drop everything and hop on a plane to come help. You can't find a decent put together Bible in any more in the stores. My sweet husband and son bought me a new Bible in 2009 to take the place of the one I have had since 1989, that was falling apart. It was long after that, when my husband held a Church Bible at a conference and said from now on we would buy those because of the quality.

  6. Love the pic of you and Hannah! Two beautiful ladies. Looks like you did spring painting, and that trumps spring cleaning any day. ;)

  7. Your daughter has gorgeous eyes and is quite lovely! The kids of your Sunday School are cute! Your neighbor's dog looks a bit sad, perhaps he is feeling a bit of guilt :) Nice Bible! I worry that my favorite may not last too many more years--it has gone through three generations now.
    Blessings, Aimee
