Art.

I hung some art on the walls today. Long ago we declared that if we were going to put any art on the walls, it needed to be done by someone we knew. Or not. We’re not really that picky, we just had high ideals at the time.

At the big garage sale, Lloyd bought some pieces by Professor Marxhausen. We already have one over the piano, and now we have three more. Today I finally found homes for them.

Two are in the bathroom. One is a paper collage, but the other is a very interesting wax-pencil-on-mirror that is just like Marxhausen’s eyebrows and mustache. (It is dangerous to clean – I accidentally wiped off some of the drawing.)

Another is a framed box front. Someone in Ontario – ‘L. Johnson’ – mailed three drawings to Marxhausen and the box was so cool he framed it. I will have to take a better photo in the daytime since this one is far too dark.

This place is turning into a regular gallery!

    You’ll have to charge people an entrance fee to walk into your house.

    Much of the art in my house is by people I know, also. They are lesser known artists: Macy and Bethany.

    You should mail something to that Ontario Guy’s address and see if he’s still there

No-photo Saturday report

I didn’t take any photos, dang it. After my wonderful sleeping, I putzed around while Lloyd did actual work. He loaded up a bunch of branches and yard yuck in the truck, and I offered to help when he was done. I did ride along to the burn pile, though, so that counts as helping. […]

Zzzzzzz….

Oops. I fell asleep on the couch again. I don’t regret it at all…. except that I rented a movie for $3.99 and only watched a dollar’s worth of it. Oh, well – sleep is its own entertainment for me. Happy Saturday, everyone!

I got a text from Beth today saying ‘Happy Birthday’ to the cats. I completely forgot. (I’m not good at remembering human birthdays.) She asked if we going to have a party for them. We did not, but I did make a hat and sent a photo to Awesome Godmother Beth. She saved them from […]

Spreadsheet

We applied for a grant to provide chairs, tables, cots, a few bookcases and a dishwasher for the new CDC and it came through. Hooray! I’ve tried making some lists about what needs to be purchased, both with the grant funds and also our own. The lists are, in scatterbrained Lauren fashion, in a notebook, […]

All that stuff in my car from IKEA ain’t gonna put itself together on its own. I am slowly working my way through it so it will just be done. There are three toy shelves and two that I’ll use for cubbies. I do so love assembling things. I am not lying. 😀
