Good Question

when will you have time to do it over?"

Austin to Austin

Corbyn & 14 others from Austin/Macgregor Manitoba, are off to Texas on an MDS trip, February 4-12, 2012.

Helping a small town 30 miles SouthEast of Austin, Texas rebuild after a devastating wildfire swept through the town destroying more than 1600 homes and buildings.

Pray with us that the team will be an effective witness of God's love in that Texas community.

Leather Floor?

Nope, it's brown paper bag flooring...that looks like leather! Google it.

The boys have been re-doing our bedrooms. Fixing & painting walls, new flooring & trim etc.

This is what our finished floors look like -- though the trim is not done yet etc.

We rather like it.

We have already noticed that it is considerably warmer than our laminate floors.

We'll have to live on it to see how durable it is, but testimonials we read say that it is very durable. We'll give it a go! If it scratches, we can always add another coat of finish ... or cover it with rugs, lino etc.

At less than $100 per room, it was worth the try. Loads of experience. Tons of fun. A learning experience.

... And learning & lovin' it, is what we're all about here at Live'n'Learn Farm.
