I have been so crazy busy with this little thing called life. And I’ve had a major case of writer’s block. Blah! Not that I’m a writer. At least I don’t consider myself one. I’d like to think of myself as a sharer of ideas. A sharer of random thoughts. So, what have I been up to? Chasing my Annie around. Remember I mentioned this one is crawling now. Can barely keep up with her. It is so awesome watching her explore and trying new things, tho. Listening to my sweet Bub and all her wacky comments. This one says things nobody would even believe. She sure is a character. The other day she was putting on a dress with tights that did not match at all. I asked her if she could at least try to match a little. She told me “Well, mama, they both have pink and sometimes people like to be colorful”. Well, that sums it up. Drowning in work at my day job. I wish all this was my day job but gotta pay them bills baby! Working on some special projects for a friend of mine about to pop. She is expecting her first baby boy and I am so excited for her. I finished up a rustic chalkboard and barn board sign for her. Can’t wait to share them! Working on our taxes. Yep. Another thing I work on. I swear. I think I just have to start giving up things. But yeah I work on our taxes. We got audited before and so now I do them myself. Really not that hard just takes time and patience. And Google. Oh I also had the stomach flu for a few days. Was in bed dying. I felt like I was hit by a truck. It was awful. Or I am just […]
Are you also feeling a bit off since we “sprung ahead”? I’ve felt awful the past few mornings since losing that hour. Sunday was the worst too. Every time I looked at the darn clock I would think how it did not feel that time at all. Thank god for coffee, tho. Helps put some pep in my step. Maybe this weekend I can try catching up on some zzz’s and getting back on track. Oh wait. Maybe not. It’s St. Pat’s and we got our fun neighborhood parade to go too! So, last week I took a break from working on my flea market items to sell. That’s all my projects have been focused on lately. My season starts in May so I need to get as much ready as I can. To ease my mind, tho, I decided to spruce up a couple pieces of my own. Add some new life to them. First item is a vase I bought ages ago from Pier 1. Back after college that was my favorite place to get things from. Now it’s OK and I still go from time to time but PB is my place of choice. My second item is a table trey I found at the thrift store last year. Actually, my mom did. I whizzed right past it and my mom pointed it out. It helps to have others with you when scouring through the thrift stores because sometimes you just scan right over some great pieces. This piece is right up my alley too so I was very happy she found it. Fit in perfectly at my home.
