don’t wake me!
I’ve had the flu, something secondary, tried to jump into some projects a bit too soon apparently, relapsing back into the flu and the stupid secondary thing. . .
Beyond THAT nonsense, I’m working on crappy projects that ~truth be told~ I’d almost rather still be sick than do. Fall clean up, and cleaning up/out the storage unit and garage to put things away for winter. Isn’t THAT so exciting?
We need to have a gas line rerun from the house to the garage and the condition of the mechanical room was NOT going make that happen. So we’re in the process of tearing up and rebuilding yet another space to work -APPROPRIATELY-.
Even MORE exciting, HuH?
I forgot to take a picture before beginning–don’t think I would’ve shown it to you anyway–just too embarrassing.
The “Before” might have looked like a “Burried Alive” show—THIS picture is at end of day today. It’s about a 90° change with another 90° change scheduled for tomorrow.
ps~ a LONG-ago picture of an Arizona Fall I actually really got to enjoy!
The Grand Canyon in Fall! However, once the Park Ranger got over the shock of how I coaxed that buck to the car with Keebler crackers, he seriously reprimanded me for the dangers of doing that! OH–yeah–uh…
…seemed like a fun idea at the moment–and HIS hips totally handled those yummy, buttery, calorie-fest crackers better that mine! ; D
Uh oh…..you may or my not survive the Victorian era. You have the right ideas, but you may not be able to fully realize them. You understand what life was like in the Victorian era, but you probably won’t be able to sacrifice all of your modern luxuries. You can try, and you may have to work hard to survive the Victorian era if you were transported back in time! Congrats, anyways.
I love all the Jane Austen books, antiques and such, but, hmmmm. How ’bout you?
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
I was catching myself “checking in” wAy too often & wondered if I could
for a few days. I knew the world wouldn’t end, but would it be—painfull? So last Thursday I hit “publish” on the latest progress in the alcove and walked away from as much electronic tethering as I could.
That was day 1. Once I made a conscious decision to check myself—I found it was like va-ca-tion time! Not only was it relaxing, I stopped thinking about it. No withdrawls. Sure, I missed some messages, but again–the world didn’t end and I was available by phone (when I heard it ring). ~I know people who would f a i l this test.
Finding it pretty easy to “walk away,” I guess I’m not addicted–yay!–even if it was only 5 days. But now I find myself wading through an enormous amount of emails. C’est la vie! Could YOU do it?
Tying up loose ends on a variety of odd projects, working on our spaces at the Antique Mall, gardening and weeding, including pilfering all the Globe Thistle stems for seasonal floral arrangements,
You can see by the decorative header I hung high on the wall (center pic, where it will live) that I’m leaning towards some version of a Dish Dresser. I’m thinking it will be more flexible for other storage down the line. I’m still plucking through my architectural collections to see what else I might have to play with!
Sunday I’ll have opportunity to shop a pretty distant flea market–maybe I’ll find something that will knock my socks off and solidify an absolute direction!
It IS nice to be plugged in again! ; D
BuT–parties abound for my niece’s nephew (are you thinking that one through?!), for a great-great nephew, an early celebration for my cousin’s son (while we were just up North at my Auntie’s cottage), and don’t forget Prince George! ; D
I’m busy on a time-sensitive custom paint job for someone and will be back to you soon—with pictures!
