It's nuts around here folks!
Here it is Monday evening! It's crazy when the day starts off so busy that you don't have time to look at your "to do" list. I did manage to get the bed made, the dishes put away, the kitchen floor swept, the litter boxes cleaned out, the living room straightened up, and the animals fed before Poppy asked, "are ready to help with the shop"?
The back side of the shop has some rotting wood. We replaced the bad boards with treated 2 x 4's. But wait, we're not done yet! Tomorrow I've been selected to drive to Lowes in Henderson for more nails and a gallon of the best heavy duty oil-based outside paint, one that will cover every flaw in these old fake logs. I'm thinking a rich walnut brown color over this faded red would look good. Also while in Henderson I need to pick up prescriptions and a few groceries...as usual! That means my long "to do" list will lay on the bar untouched for another day.
Some kitties around here have nothing to do but play.
But that's okay!
Here is the first red tomato from the teeny tiny garden. Big and heavy, but not too pretty. It almost looks like two tomatoes grown together??
Better get busy. Gosh, it's almost 9:00! I had planned to sew tonight. A day or so ago I cut out two aprons....a red and black print and a green and black print. The trim and pockets on both aprons I had cut from black fabric...or so I thought. When I sat down at the sewing machine last night...prepared to sew... I realized that I had cut the pockets and trim from navy blue fabric, not black. Always something!!
Hope to be back soon.
