"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." ... Romans 8:28
So. Our two new windows are being installed even as I write and I've had to adapt to a major-ish disappointment. Quickly. And come up with a new idea for one of the windows.
The problem? The interior frame of the picture window was supposed to match the existing (wood-grain) trim, but it arrived in white. Sigh. So after Skyping with Tom about it, I, with contract in hand, spoke with one of the window guys and ....skipping some discussion.... blah, blah, blah ... we arrived at a Plan B. He'll install 'rough trim' and I will paint it white to match the window frame. And after that, I will also paint the trim, white, of the nearby, older picture window.
I have 17 other projects planned around here--what's one more? :)
Oh well. I prefer white trim around windows, anyway, and I promised Tom I'd be happy with this change of plans. Maybe someday the wood trim in the big three-part window in the dining area will irk us due to its 'non-matchiness', but for now, we'll live with it.
Changing plans, having to go to an unthought-of Plan B: that's Life. It happens. But oh, what matters most to God is how we behave when it does!
"Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you." ... Ephesians 4:32
So I guess you'll just see the new kitchen window tomorrow and the other window will have to wait some days. I'm sure you'll survive. :)
My latest better-than-free groceries:
The two Finish dishwasher products gave me a $3 profit.
Three Teriyaki sauces gave me a $2.30 profit.

Why share these deals? Simply as a reminder that--even with continual spikes in grocery costs--it doesn't mean we must pay those high prices.
Speaking of free groceries, SavingStar's Friday Freebie is a 26 oz. box of Morton table salt. This offer is good all weekend.
