I’ve been all over the place lately (in time, space and brain activity) so I’ve got a great deal of ‘stuff’ rolling around in my head right now. I thought I’d share just a few interesting tidbits of my life with you. I don’t typically do this but thought it would be fun to do a little “show and tell”. I’ve been carrying my camera around with me everywhere because you never know when a great photo op will present itself. The following photos are, obviously, not the result of great photo ops…just random things I decided to shoot.
Last month I decided to repaint my garage. It was a garish orange/red color and had been that way for the past, oh, 10 years. It was time for a change. So, what does a professional painter do with her time off? She paints. Ugh. I forgot to take pictures before I started scraping and priming, but you get the idea:
The upper left shows the “before” color…and the right side is the new, improved “after” color – a deep plum (it actually looks more like a deep red – but I like it all the same).
And…the finished project…complete with upper half of ‘dog body’. And, a shot of my cock rooster. He wanted to be included. He’s kinda bossy like that.
Moving right along. A few weeks ago my daughter and her friends were playing in the back yard and discovered a hole. They kept poking, prodding, digging, and eventually shoved a very long stick down this hole. They came running to me saying “The hole in the back yard is like 9 feet deep…you must come see!” So, I went to take a peek. And this is what I saw:
Hmmm…a hole. Upon further investigation with a flashlight I was able to peer into the crack enough to see that what we have here is a well. Yes, a well! Complete with flagstone walls. It looks to be in pristine condition and I’m guessing that it measures approximately 5 feet deep and 4 feet wide. Now, my daughter and her friends are extremely exited and want to excavate the well. I’m not sure this is a good idea. There are several large stones layered over the hole and I’m just afraid if one of the kids digs too deeply they will dislodge a stone and WHOOSH! into the well they’ll go. So, the excavation is on hold at the moment until I decide on a safe method of unearthing it. I think it would be cool to have it all uncovered – but what the hell am I going to do with an empty well in my backyard? Fill it with water and make a doggy pool? I think not.
Are you bored yet? Good. I’m going to keep rambling. I have a lot of pictures to share and will probably have to continue on with this randomness in another post. But now I would like to share with you the randomness that is my compulsive stock-piling-of-beauty-products (and possibly many other things, now that I think about it). Take a look-see:
Top shelf of my walk-in closet: masses of products that I have stock piled. Why? Because they were on sale and God forbid I pass up a bargain! Lower shelf: masses of t-shirts in every color imaginable. Those are just the v-neck t-shirts. I have an entire drawer full of every-color-of-the-rainbow tank tops. Yeah. Do you think I have a problem? Nah.
Alright, kids, I’m sure you’re all asleep by now. I’ll continue this ramble another time.
