I started a thing.

Holy cow! I used speech-to-text to write this last night and got distracted before uploading it. If you read it earlier, sorry for the many, many hilarious typos. On to our story:

Remember way back in January when I started a list of things to do? I broke every job down into the tiny little jobs that needed to happen before the big job could be done? Well, I threw that list away last week. It was laughable, considering how the world has changed since January.

However, I am making steps toward painting Brad‘s room. He is a fan of cool neutrals, and since he is the only one that uses that room, he should get to pick the color. I am working on all the little jobs before I can paint the walls. I took the screws out of the wall and patched the holes, patched the crack in the ceiling, and then painted over the clouds.

I believe I painted those clouds in my 20s. It was a little odd painting over some of the home’s history, but I didn’t feel too bad about it since I can’t really remember doing it in the first place. I needed a website back then. Stupid hindsight.

‘Bye, clouds…..

Anyway, one step further along!

Saturday Sans Lloyd

Saturday Sans Lloyd

Lloyd is in Missouri visiting his parents, so I’ve been home on my own for a few days. I don’t really notice it when I’m at work, but Saturday? Saturday was Lauren At Home Day. It was awesome. I got up early, made my fire and breakfast, baked up some bread, did some organizing (thanks […]

Not a good year for trees

Not a good year for trees

Apparently we had a terrible thunderstorm last night – slow-moving, sustained winds of 40-50 miles per hour for over and hour with gusts of 70 mph, and some rain. People lost power for hours (not me) and it was a big deal….. but not for me. I had a ‘good’ night of sleep. With my […]

Before I begin, let me say “Happy Birthday!” to the first of the Rachels, Rachel Sommerer! Woot! Tomorrow (Thursday) is Rachel Hofman’s, so cheers to her, as well! Let’s talk about my garden and how terribly it’s going. My first tomato plant got sick and the three tomatoes that I thought were going to feed […]

Tiny treats

Tiny treats

A while back I was drooling over Aldi’s wares (online), and some people were writing about their little ice cream sandwiches and how great they are. If I could upload a stupid photo from the internet, you’d see that on the box, they look just like Oreos with ice cream inside. I wish the photo […]
