We go to the drive~in movie.
The Basin drive~in theater has a new movie showing, about every weekend.
This past Saturday, we saw ' The Zookeeper's Wife'.
We had a mini convoy to the theater, including our son and his fiance, and some dear friends of ours.
The theater is also famous for their 'Basin Burgers' , and we had a delicious burger for dinner.
My sweet hubby and I took a ride in the early evening on Sunday.
We drove by the 'Old Pea Factory' in Manti, and there were a couple of rock chucks hanging out on the old dock.
Can you see that critter on the dock in the below picture?
Gray clouds and rain throughout the valleys.
This is the sunset that greeted us on Friday night, as we left the temple.
He recently had a new water main installed.
The old pipes had corroded and his water pressure was low and weak.
Once the new water line was installed, now he has great water pressure!
The operator covered the line up, of course, but now Spencer needs to rake and replant lawn, and remove the rocks from the yard, etc.
I painted the kitchen and decorated the kitchen.
Below is a little glimpse of the new wall color and a bit of decor.
I love thrifting!
Yard sales, and thrift stores yield some of the greatest finds.The above shelf, two of the plates, the small vintage rooster salt shaker, the sign, and the wreath are all thrifted finds.
I did a makeover on the shelf, of course, but the design of the shelf was just perfect for my "Cottage ~ Farmhouse" style. It cost a mere three dollars.
The county records show this house being built sometime between 1885 and 1900, though there is not a specific date registered.
The house was for sale and some dear friends wanted to look at it, to buy it.
They wanted our opinion, as we have renovated old homes for over 25 years
There is work to still be done here, but all the hard and 'not fun' work has been done here. The updated electrical, insulation, HVAC, etc.
The floors have all been redone with wood look tile, which is very easy to maintain, scrub and family friendly.
They took out the transom window, and made a door with four panes in the top, but the door is super tall and makes up the space of the transom.
*All pictures of the house were taken from the listing.Dining area.
The house is adorable, and all the hard work is done, though there may be color changes and decorative changes that our friends want to make.
They put an offer on the house,and it was accepted! Sans any hiccups, they will be the new owners of this darling old cottage!
They hope to close by the end of next month.
We are very happy for them, and excited for them to have an old house.
~Attitude of gratitude :
* So grateful for good health. My back gave me a few twitches and twangs this past weekend, and while it slowed me down, just a bit, it didn't take me out. I am so grateful that we enjoy good health.
*Thankful for the rain that we received.
*Feeling thankful that I found a darling skirt and top for the wedding. I looked at lots of dresses, and skirts, and finally found just the right style for me, and the right color for the wedding. Our future daughter in law has chosen to have mauve, and blush for her colors. Mauve colored clothing, and accessories aren't as easy to find these days, as it was in the 1980's!
~On the list :
*Paint the hallway, and get started on the livingroom
*Scrub and re~stain the fence rails and finials.
*Plant seeds... sunflower, zinnia, morning glories, Italian flat leaf parsley.
* Plant tomato plants and basil and peppers
