it seems i have turned into a once a week blogger...
totally not my intention.
i have kept myself plenty busy...i promise.
i have 13 shows on the dvr that haven't been watched yet.
i have come down with spring cleaning fever...
and when you got it, you gotta keep going.
other than cleaning and purging this house, this is what i've been up to lately.
a friends wedding.
it was simple & perfect.
the bride is a pilot, so the reception was at our airport in a hangar.
very cool idea.
the brides grandma, turned out to be my elementary school music teacher.
i went over and introduced myself...she remembered me.
that. never. happens.
(i also ran into my elementary school principal this week while getting my hair cut.)
(i realized afterwords my camera was on a setting i had never used before...which i'm guessing is why all the pictures are so grainy)
this is what i made for the bride & groom.
the next day a group of friends and i headed to the sticks to beki's house for a free photography workshop.
by the look of the wedding photos, it wasn't a moment too soon.
i learned a lot.
me and my little fuji were outnumbered by canons and nikons.
i asked beki to send a note home with me telling my husband that i need a canon.
he said...then go get one.
but in the next breath he said...but i think you take really good pictures with the one you have.
reverse psychology maybe???
when we were leaving it started raining frozen sleet balls.
today it was absolutely stunning outside...75, sunny, barely a breeze...divine!
hopefully kansas has gotten all the crankiness out of it's system for good.
i made myself a yummy chicken salad sandwich for lunch.
she makes it with a rotisserie chicken from the store. already cooked and seasoned.
it totally makes all the difference.
when it was still cold i made a batch of loaded potato soup in the crockpot.
miley has been stalking this icky varmint all week.
especially when they are lurking in the tree above my head.
when the weather started turning nice, instead of being outside, i felt the urge to purge the inside.
i cleaned out closets and now have a bunch of stuff to take to the thrift store.
i moved all the winter stuff into the closet in our bedroom...i use it for off season clothing.
why not use the master closet?
well...i am short, but both master closets are kid sized in height.
how the clothes rod has not busted yet is beyond me.
it is OLD!
it is there so that all the shoulders don't get a white plaster mark on them.
someday i will take the time to paint the closets, but it's not really high on my priority list right now.
once again wal-mart sucked me in and made me divert from my list for this.
me, that's who.
this is the rest of my little bathroom.
in case you were curious.
if your not, then just skip the next couple of pictures :)
it's been a while since i have done anything that big.
someday i will refinish the tub and get new flooring...but for now it's fine with me.
i don't think i could live without my clawfoot tub, it is my favorite and most used thing in this house.
i turned those trays i was spray painting a few weeks back into little chalk boards.
so there's my quick rundown of the happenings around here.
tomorrow i start a small painting job in a little town near ours.
(every so often i take on one of these...i like painting so it's fun for me.)
it does require painting popcorn ceilings though...ugh!
i already made a chiropractic appointment for friday...
i will need it.
peace out peeps.
