Woosh! ~ Day 2 and 3

The library/chapel/guest room is painted now!
It looks so beautiful!
My Dad painted the master bedroom as well...
we are so glad to have these colours...
the woodlawn blue is really beautiful!

My Dad paints the corners first and then rolls paint on after this.

It is really really lovely and peaceful!

Today my Dad also painted all the doors... you can see
that the doors were needing a fresh bright coat of white!

After tons of uncertainty about moving our 
library before the rest,
the move happened this morning at 7 AM and they were done,
moved to our new home and the bookshelves
set in the right place by 9 AM!
These four men worked so hard! 
Some of them had 4 boxes of books wrapped and 
strapped to their back, most likely 200 lbs!
My husband and my Dad worked on re-anchoring all the bookcases
today and we cleaned them after that.
They look great in there!
We are doing lots of cleaning at the new place
and hope to do a home depot run sometime soon.
Tomorrow God willing a packer is coming to
pack up our kitchen and dining room;
we have moved much ourselves also as we need stuff
to use at our new home.
Everyone in our new neighbourhood is so friendly!
(Sadly we have not had this where we've been living)...
Our new neighbours seem really good
and we are really hopeful.
I hope to pack the rest of our stuff other than the
kitchen/dining area so that on this coming DV 
long holiday weekend Mr. Husband and I can
spend some nice time with my parents and 
set up our new library and get rid of the boxes, etc.
Our final move is in one week.
By then the rest of our new home should be painted and 
hopefully some other things done also.
I am not able to keep up on blogs as much
right now, FYI, as things are so busy.
Thanking God for each prayer that you,
my dear friends, have and are saying for us!
May God have mercy on us all and save us!

It's so nice to be able to move in slowly and paint before you get there! What colour is the blue in person? It looks very grey and cold on my screen.

So, so happy for you, Elizabeth! God is so good to us, isn't He? All the time, too. :) May all the work of your hands and those helping you be blessed as you prepare your new home for moving in. What a joy to begin anew! :)

You are getting so much accomplished! What a blessing to have family helping. That color blue is lovely. :)
