This was one of my test shots...my graduation photo from '72, one iron elephant bookend that I've owned forever, and one Corning glass hen candy dish I found at a yard sale about fifteen years ago. I wonder why I chose these two things to sit in the shelf beside me?
I had a wild hair, as some people say, this weekend. I decided the tv room furniture needed to be in my sitting area and vice-versa. I have had help moving one chair. I still have one huge couch and one loveseat to move. I am waiting on inspiration as to how to accomplish that. When I get the furniture in the correct room, then I'll arrange it, I'm sure or I'm hoping with Bev's help because she is a true artist with furniture arranging (and many other things).
Bev came to help with my computer/craft/art/sewing room. One chair came in here and two went out. One chair went to Andrew's room from my sitting area. One chair in the dining room and one from the den went to my room. Are you confused yet? I am!
Bev helped clean my floors...what a wonderful, sweet sister...moved some paintings and rugs around, dusted and washed dishes. She was a life saver! She has one big box of stuff packed for the shop.
Since my computer drama, I had not restraightened all the wires, etc...done. My printer was returned and in now back by my computer. I have mended hubby's t-shirt pockets and altered some jeans.
Bev gave me homework, too. I had one big box of toy parts to go through...broken ones, gone...collectibles in one box...just toys that someone else will enjoy in another. Working on another box to leave this house FOREVER.
Next on my list is sewing a tear in a chair arm and sewing a pillow seam that is partially undone. Sadly, these will be by hand and I DETEST hand sewing.
Hey, I thought I was supposed to take it easy on a day off! It has been a pure pleasure to see things go into a new spot and be cleaned, too. It is very uplifting when you know a job is well done.
Now, a sample of outside photography, from my camera and my hot pepper, Ki-Anne.
This little bull is not running!
Ki's brakes are good.
They attempt to stare each other down.
Casually moving closer to each other,
The little bull is the winner,
and Ki, the chicken, runs out.
