Flowers & Paint

Stacey received a vase of flowers from Jason for Valentine's Day. She liked them and posted a thank you on Facebook.
For about a week, Julianna Parham Painting had been working at our house. Julia used three colors of green to paint our living room, dinning room, kitchen and two hallways. A light green was used in the hallways, a medium green was used in the kitchen, living room and upper section of the dinning room with the lower section below the chair rail getting the darker green. She did an excellent job and made our house look new again on the inside walls.

Nana & Roof Shingles

Stacey, Linda & I took Coco & Reece in the Silverado to Daleville Sunday. The drive was a little harder than normal due to the winds once we crossed the Ohio River. As I pulled into the driveway at the Daleville house, I noticed pieces of shingles from the roof laying on the driveway. I picked up a few and then unlocked the door. After we unloaded the truck, I took a look at the roof on the upwind side of the house. The pictures below are what I saw.
A few of the shingles were just flipped up, but others were gone.
We left the dogs in the house and went to visit Nana at the Bethany Point nursing home. When we arrived, Reba was standing up using her walker. We gave her hugs and talked with her until it was time for her to go to the dinning room. We walked with Nana and then left once she was seated at a table with other residents. During the week, Linda & Stacey went to visit with her and retrieved things from her place that she wanted. I remained at the Daleville house and took care of the dogs. The only problems were caused by people cleaning out the old fire station building and making noises that caused the dogs to jump off the couch and bark, incessantly! Steve Sargent had one of the guys that works for him repair the roof shingles with a couple new shingles and to put roofing cement/tar under the shingles to hold them down until the sun can heat the roofing enough to seal the shingles down to the rest of the roof.
Wednesday, we took Reece to see Nana at the nursing home. Reba was happy to see her dog when Reece jumped on the bed and they snuggled for several minutes. I led Reece while Nana walked with us through the lobby of the home as many of the residents reached down to rub Reece. Nana told most of them that Reece was her dog. We returned to Nana's room and Linda had one of the workers put the shadow box she had put together for Reba on the wall just outside her door. The boxes help the residents find their rooms and also lets the staff know a little bit about the person in the room and their lives before they were admitted. We visited with Nana for a couple of hours and she walked us to the door, said good bye to Reece and us as she went to the dinning room for supper.
Thursday morning we closed the house up and drove to the farm, only stopping at a rest area to let the dogs out for a few minutes. We unloaded the truck as soon as we were home, then took the dogs for a run with Daisy. I lost my cell phone during the ride. We returned the dogs to the house and looked, but never found it as it was raining.
