Now my biggest worry is what goes on at home while I am away....

Yesterday, was No. 1 Son's 35th birthday....boy, does that make me feel old. But he wasn't dining on fine Mexican cuisine he was chasing down that one and only deer he is allowed to shoot. Seems he's already met his limit on a buck, a doe, a fawn (I kid!) and whatever the third one was. And now he is in search of a Spike.... I googled "Spike" and got not one picture of a deer...but I did get lots of this....
Anyway, back to the birthday. We celebrated his birthday last Tuesday and EVERYONE in the family was able to make it! It's always loud and fun when we all get together and that night was no different.

Now to change the mood and just because I'm feeling daring and my DD told me too, I proceed with a short commentary....
I guess it's just a nicer (did I really say that?) way to promote or name a sex shop? I've never actually been in one, but I assume they don't sell just condoms?
This has bugged me since the day these places went into business! First of all why did they ever move out of the pharmacy shelves (I'm sure they're still there but you know what I mean?) or men's restrooms at gas stations or wherever else they are or have been.
GIVE ME A BREAK~~
My heart goes out to the poor parents that have to explain these things to their children at way too young of an age.

There is something about Monday mornings I just hate. I'm usually a Pollyanna, glass almost full kind of gal, but Monday's bum me out.
Well, this week is starting off with a BANG as this afternoon I have a full round of allergy testing and tomorrow I'm spending the day at the hospital having an upper and lower scopes done. (that's putting it nicely...not medically) Since both parents were taken by cancer and polyps seem to be a fad in my family I must surmise every 5th year to this joy. If I could just get my siblings to get their head out of the sand and take care of their medical business I would be a woman at peace. Oh well!
Have a happy week! and TGIM!

It all started out innocent enough....I was going to drop off some of our junk at the local resale shop.
We seem to have an abundance of hospital drinking glasses...go figure!
Here are some things I stumbled upon...
Gonna spray paint that little pillar black and not sure about the frame...the tray or pan they are sitting on is going to become a mirrored mosaic.
I love these face wall sconces..should they remain the same or be painted??
Also some vintage dishes that will be worked into a mosaic birdhouse (stay tuned) and the "J" shaving mug goes to MFSIL for his toothbrushes...
I have a little collection of small interesting boxes and I picked up these two for 50 cents. The one I am holding has "Made in Italy" on the back and a handwritten price tag .
This is an old stamp holder for those rubberstamps that required a ink stamp pad....Only a DOLLAR!
This is a box of 3 tiered Christmas trees brand new in the box (regular price $39.99) I snagged for a mere $9
A wooden plate?
A travel size scrabble game with tiny little scrabble pieces...probably going to use these pieces in a creative way of some sort....

It doesn't count that at least half of them will take more than a day or two to complete and I've thought of a dozen more things since completing this list.....time will tell and life will go on and I'll go with it whether the list gets done or not.
Wish me well!!

We have a new nail place in town and I almost drove off the road when I saw it...
I'm sure they're raking in the money... I just wonder where you have to go to have the other eight fingers done???

Every now and then we take time out and drop in on DD and MFSIL and pitch in to help. If you don't know they purchased their first home a few (well, several) months ago. It was a bank repo and they have completely restored it into great condition. There is still a list of little odds and ends that need to be done and she is over anxious (and rightly so) to get everything "put together"...
Hummmm, what's wrong with this picture??
put together her half bath. Now check this curtain out...she picked it up at Ross for a dollar!
And this is where MFSIL says I have too much time on my hands.... an idea for the office! Not too much time just a bad case of A.D.D.
This is the actual room, but before new carpet, a new ceiling fan and a fresh coat of paint. The lower half of the wall is a dark shade of beige and the upper section a lighter shade of beige. DD has some creative ideas for the furniture in this room.

I just wish I had taken a picture before I covered it, but I didn't...so imagine it without all this pink stuff glued to it.

Of course, the mutton bustin was a hoot too...
It was a FUN Saturday night!
