I had posts for this week all laid out. I took pictures on Monday, and wouldn’t you all be so surprised with the updates? Then workers didn’t show.
Our project had slid for a week. That’s OK; we’re not in any hurry.
We’ve been having lovely weather, so me and the MR were outside watching the sunset, when the driveway alarm went off. Was someone here? No. Then it went off again, and again, and again.
The MR studied up; apparently, when the battery starts to wear out, the alarm just goes off randomly–lovely. So he ordered a battery, replaced it, and yesterday I found myself scrambling onto counters unplugging strange devices as the dogs barked wildly for phantom visitors.
The MR’s simple “Why’d you unplug the doorbell?” was met with only a little hair-pulling, crazy ranting. We have a new driveway alarm on order.
Meanwhile, I’d set up a lovely vignette, I had a lyrical post written in my head, you guys were going to love it. Hmm, the battery was dead in the camera (for the second time this week), my phone battery was dead, my Nike fuel band was out of power, I’m seeing a pattern.
We’re in some kind of electronic vortex where everything’s going to blow up this spring. I’m over-reacting a little, but can’t some things just go right?
So here’s a little something I’ve been waiting to post for a while. Remember when I bought a 4×4 print last fall and wanted to hang it by the TV in the master bedroom? Two large blobs on the wall, were a bit much, so it found a home over the bathtub.
Well, that was months ago, and I’ve been looking for more art for our room. We needed something besides just a big old TV.
I watched and waited until this piece came along. With a low-tech hammer and nail, the MR had it on the wall in a jiffy.
I’ve been holding off sharing this with you, since I’d really like to have more. We could add some black-and-white drawings, architectural plans, family pictures, botanical prints, the list is endless.
For now instead of a gallery wall, I’ll have to be satisfied with this.
I could just go out and buy a bunch of random stuff to fill the space, but I’d rather have art that holds meaning and reminds me of special times. This may take awhile.
Now on the positive side, my new washer and dryer whipped through a mountain of laundry yesterday. Sweet Miss and her fella came home from Oregon for the weekend–I do love those two. And I made gluten-free brownies that are amazing; I think browning the butter is the key.
Next week, my camera will be up and running, I’ll wow you with my wonderful find, and you’ll be amazed by our next big project–be prepared.
