Steps that I painted in a customer's house over Christmas holiday.
A verse by the author of Winnie the Pooh.
Wool jackets found at the thrift shop yesterday,
Washed, felted and ready to cut up and
or something to tone them down.
The clerk was so happy for me and my finds.
I have long ago learned not to tell them that I cut them up,
when I had someone refuse to sell it to me
if I was cutting it up.
Now I just smile and agree that they are great finds.
Even if they are Size 4 Petites,
and I am not.
when I walk away,
they comment as to how I am going to fit into THAT?
A lovely surprise from
Thank you so much Linda,
I had a dark moment yesterday,
This certainly brightened it.
Refer to the end of this post.
The rest of the story of coffee in the basement.
JWS brought home this lovely,
Imagine his surprise when I told him in no uncertain terms
it was not going into the kitchen.
it is in the
not so lovely
See the carafe thingie
on the left.
We make the coffee and take it upstairs and put that on the counter.
Crochet hearts, waiting to be coffee stained
(with the wool)
Going to try the whole tree for each season this year.
Maybe I'll actually make it past
Another thrift store find.
has anyone read it?
More painting in the same house as the steps
and the red kitchen from a month or so ago.
JWS has been getting some great sunset pics lately.
He took this from the hill across the road from our house.
Our house is right in the middle of this picture.
Our little corner of the world.
Now with all this happy, happy stuff,
I have to tell you the dark side of my day yesterday.
Yesterday was my DD day.
well, sort of,
we call it
As a little back-up
I have "wired out" on a few people lately.
Not entirely unjustly,
just that I try not to do that.
A trip to the doctor the other day
might have explained it.
Really high BP.
Despite weight loss and exercise,
my BP continues to rise.
Again, another story.
back to the dark moment.
I go to Dialysis to pick my MIL up and
one of the county transit buses
had the only two close spots to pick up patients
Let me back up a little by saying that while a lot of the drivers are great
and kind to the patients
many of them are very inconsiderate in their parking skills
for the rest of us that drive there to pick up our family members.
They block the spaces,
they sit there and drink coffee
with the spaces blocked.
I could go on.
It's been a year.
I have kept my mouth shut.
well let's just say
I did not.
It hit me wrong
and I told him in no uncertain terms
that he was being rude and inconsiderate
and explained to him
where I thought he should go....park that is.
He didn't apologize,
he didn't offer to move.
That just made me madder.
I may have to go over his head.
But in the meantime....
I have doubled my BP meds.
Sure hope that they kick in soon.
Mostly for everyone else's sake.
