Well, here we are at week two, and I'm getting a late start on my post. The other linking participants probably all have their games on, and the 20 featured folks CERTAINLY did... Believe it or not, I actually got lots of things done last week, but, as the blog post "deadline" came, this happened:
Yup. That's a sick noodle in there. This is the farthest I got from her for the entire day yesterday. She had a tummy bug and life got in the way of blogging. As it should. She's on the mend today and, while she's still resting, she is eating again, so that's good. I'm counting the hours until I go down with it. It seems inevitable, considering at one point there was barf on my face that wasn't mine. I threw everything I know about skincare out the window and actually washed my face and arms with a Chlorox wipe at 3am just before changing the bedsheets and taking a shower with her to get us both less barfy. TMI? Yup. It was more information than I wanted, too... sigh
Anyway, without giving away too much, here is the rest of my week - in pictures...
Ewww. Begone, moldy nastiness!!!!
My Instgram post this week, detailing a new love affair...
...and the morning after.
Saturday morning test-drive. I think the chairs work just fine. My brain needed coffee and inspiration.
Phase II of patio set rehab. Scrub, sand, paint. A cheaper alternative to the more appropriate powder-coating. I just can't see spending the $$ to have the set sand-blasted and powder-coated. I need new floors more than I need perfection in patio pieces.
What IS it about the One Room Challenge that causes me to forget I DON'T SEW!? Stupid bobbin.
And, what would a week with me be without a #thriftytreasure find!? This $20 bamboo table has been on my wishlist for a while now. (I have several such pieces saved on etsy and Chairish, but $20 they are not.) I love a good STEAL.
Well, how about that for a post that says almost nothing at all!? The trouble with the ORC is that the final reveal is much more fun IMHO if you don't know TOO much going into it. So, I shall be posting these cryptic updates and you can ponder the puzzle while I prep, paint, and (hopefully NOT) puke. OY.
