Dare to Share #425


It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

I have a lot to share with you this week. After working on my friend's house for several weeks, we have finally got the work almost done.  Last Saturday was the last official day of the estate sale. We sold a handful of things during the week too, because of the internet.  Overall it was a success.  We also were able to get everything put together inside the house for it's official open house on the 5th.  The night of the 4th my friend, her son, another friend on the lake and myself spent the last evening at the house on the deck enjoying the beautiful view and a bonfire. 


It was a bittersweet unofficial goodbye. There may have a been a few tears shed.  The moon was breathtaking that night (my photo does not do it justice) and there were fireworks all around the lake.  It was so peaceful that night sitting by the fire, eating smores, and taking everything in.  The open house was a success as well. She had several people visit, and has also had 9 or 10 showing this week.  We are not quite done at the house just yet.  This weekend we need to go back and box up everything from the sale that is being donated to charity before the truck comes to pick things up.  The last few days I have been taking it easy.  Temps where I live have been in the mid 90s with a heat index feeling like 100.  I have a harder time breathing when its extra hot and humid, so I tried to stay cool and rested indoors.  I also had the chance to start a new project that has been in the works for awhile.  


I have been asked by Winnie's Picks to try a custom paint by number set.  I chose a picture of my cat Milo who died a few years ago and it still missed.  Since I have been so busy with helping my friend, it is taken me a bit to get started.  So far I really like it.  I just started yesterday and doing a section at a time so I do not accidentally smear the paint.  I will be sharing my progress and a review in the coming weeks, and based on what I have seen so far it will be a GOOD review post.  

Well it looks to be about that time again, time to get the party started.   Link up and HAVE FUN!
