Yesterday, we did not work. We both did a little planning but no work. One of the things we have been really enjoying is taking our Sabbath. For us observing the Sabbath means going to worship, spending time together, and resting. Going to worship has been difficult because with this move and my change in job, we have no church home. A church anchors us and we both miss it terribly. We keep trying different churches but have not found one we are happy with. We did find one where the people were sooo nice but I am not happy with the theology we heard there. By theology, I mean that I am expecting to hear about God's grace and mercy. Judgement is certainly an important topic but I need to hear grace and mercy. Yesterday we found one where the theology was right on but the people were as unfriendly as you could ever expect to find. We continue searching.
After our lunch, the newspaper and our nap, we both woke with our heads wrapped around the next project. Phil spent a good deal of time working on how the tile will be layed out. I mapped out how big the dining room table will be. yes, I plan to build my own table. When the neighbors across the street had a garage sale and in amongst the stuff was a 36 x 60 table. The base is metal with a small amount of curleyque. Kind of looks like it was manufactured in the 80's. I bought it for $15. The current fake butcher block top will be used in some other project. But the base will be painted flat black and I plan to make a table top that is 48 x 72. Back when we were in Fredericksburg, a granite company went out of business and I raided their abandoned scrap heap for large junks of polished granite. Got lots of different colors. It will be used now to make a mosaic table top to go on the metale base. It will be heavy but that is why the base needed to be metal.
We both have such grand ideas. These will have to wait until later. Right now Phil is trying to fix the a/c and we are planning to make a run to Navy Federal as we are out of checks. We can't order the countertops without a check. So, as soon as the a/c thing is corrected, we are off to do the other chores. Maybe we'll buy some backer board for the tile while we are there.
