Slowly, slowly, so it seems anyway, our shed's facelift is getting done! We've (.....well mostly Jason) just worked on the weekends (when we didn't have other things going on), and when we could budget in materials. Hopefully by this weekend, it will be completely done! Yay! (Then we get to move on to much more fun home improvement projects)!
You can see the old worn out siding at the top on the front. That's my dad and Jason working replacing the old siding with Hardie board siding.
Then with most of the Hardie board siding now on:
You can see a little better from this view the color that we are painting it.....it's called Ginger Spice. I was thrilled to find this color to match our cedar home without custom mixing something!
Now all that's left to do is add the big door on the side and get the front door painted (red, or course, Longjohn Red to be exact).
Oh, and I had to share this picture! This was taken on Halloween. Luke had to "help" daddy!
I thought I'd share a favorite apple recipe of ours around here (and it's easy too). I just made it the other day and it was devoured rather quickly. It jogged my memory on how much we really love it.
6 large apples
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
Place diced apples in a greased baking dish. I use a 7 x 11 inch dish.
Pour orange juice over apples.
Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture over apples.
Combine flour, remaining sugar and salt. Mix in butter until crumbly. Spoon over apples.
Bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes (until lightly browned on top).
It's best served hot. Jason likes his with ice cream.
I prefer it without.
And here's a hint at what I've been up to......can you believe it already? (I just can't help myself....it's my favorite holiday)! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by today! God bless! :)
