Paint and new carpet in Basement

Finally it’s done! WOW what a job. Wilma and I have been working just about every day to complete this project. We still have some finishing touches to do before Thanksgiving, but you can see the difference from the before and after pictures.



















Next comes moving in the furniture, tables and chairs and we will be ready for our Thanksgiving Celebration.

It’s been really tough finishing this project. With Wilma tending to the grandkids and her daily chores, plus I’m still working 7 days a week 10 hours a day at work. Looking forward to this Thursday, Thanksgiving day as I will have 4 straight days off from work.

Both of my daughters, Angel and Tina, need new tires on their cars, so Dad has offered to pay for them.  As they are both watching their budget very closely, and my overtime has come in handy at the perfect time. See how God works his ways? Wonderful isn’t it.

Got to get to bed, tomorrow is another 10 hour work day at work and then another 3 hours in the basement.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.


  1. You did great work! I will be looking forward to pictures with all the furniture. Hopefully you get some rest now. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

  2. Thank You Vera for your kind words. We still have plenty of work to do to be ready for the family of some 24 people, but it will be a joyous day.

    Wilma and I also wish you and all our readers a Happy Thanksgiving.
