Time For A Blog Update!!!!!

Good morning everyone!!!!! It has, once again, been awhile since I have updated my blog...I hate that!!!!! Life is still moving along at break-neck speed, but I am still lov'in it. I can not believe that we are into week 10 of school already. Monday was the start of the 2nd half of the first semester and we have started new subjects. Wednesday's are now our on-line class, Salon Business, so I do not have to be at school until it. Wednesday's now will be the day I catch up on things and also do some laundry and get a bit of house work done. We are still going home every weekend which leaves NO TIME to relax and do any sewing. We are hoping the house will be done by Christmas which will make the miles and hours on the road worth it.

School Daze

The last 9 weeks of school I have learned how to perm, color, cut manicures and pedicures and also learned A LOT about bacteria and how to keep a salon sanitary. Here are a few pictures of some of the hands-on projects I did during class. These were all practical tests and were all graded, I am happy to say, I got a good grade on them all.

My perm test....we had to wrap this perm in 60 mins and then we were graded on how we apply the perm solution, the rinsing, neutralizing, and how the perm turned out.

Taking the rods out here....pretty happy with the turn out.

She's done!!!!!!

Here is my roller set and comb out.....I actually liked doing this one.

And here is my color.....Loved doing this!!!!!

Starting the color

First section done

Moving right along


All done!!!!!


Home Is Where The Heart Is

When we were home a couple weekends ago, we had a camp fire at my daughter Kara's. We were able to spend some time with our grandson's Carson and Garrett. Brent was playing in the leaves with was so cute, I had to get some pics. Anyway, I told them all that I wanted a picture and to pose.....Brent said "pick your noses" and both of their little fingers went up to their noses with lightening speed. We all laughed soooo you can tell, Brent laughed the hardest. Kids, they are so precious and so funny!!!!!

Here they are running and having a blast

They loved it and so did Brent!!!!!

Here they are....Carson and Garrett.

Our House

We had our sidewalks poured last week.....they turned out really good:)

Love the side if we only had some grass:)

Next Spring, we will have the yard and flower gardens in....can't wait!!!!

Brent is busy laying our wood floors...what a guy, he gets up at 4am and starts and works until 10pm!!!!

Here is the spare bathroom, the small hall and our office all it!!!!

Brent has all the flooring laid expect for the living room, kitchen and dining room (shown above). He is hoping to get them done this weekend. We will then stain and seal the floor and then it's time for the kitchen to get installed!!!!! This is scheduled for Nov. 15th....can't wait...a house is not a home until you have a kitchen!!!!!!

Well, that's about it for now, my books are calling my name so I better get at it. Blessings to everyone....Rhonda

Thanks girls, we are very happy with everything so far...I will be glad when it is done though, getting tired of picking things out. Kinda stressful because you always hope everything matches and goes together when you are finished!!!!! Blessings, Rhonda

Beautiful floors. All that wood grain will really stand out when stained. I would not trade the wood floors here at the homestead. Your wall colors are pretty. Great you all had a family get together. Before you know it you will be finished with school. Sounds like you are enjoying it much. Blessings!
