Need a funny HA HA?

While mom and I were out shopping yesterday we stopped at Warm Glo Candles off I70 in Centerville, IN which is a huge antique shop area.

Anyway I saw this little nick nack that said:

"The word DIET puts a bad taste in my mouth, I have to wash it out with CHOCOLATE!!"

Back with me now.

It has been 1 month now or 4 weeks since I put my dog, Brit, to sleep. It has been really hard adjusting to not having her around. Not tripping over her, not feeding her, not taking her out at 6am, not having her sit next to me at the chair, or following me around everywhere I go in the house. Nope, my little shadow, my best and faithful friend sits in a box now on top of the hutch in the living room. Her ashes are with me now.

The message on her box reads:


" I explained to St. Peter
I'd rather stay here.
Outside the pearly gates,
I won't be a nuisance,
I won't make a sound.
I'll be very patient and wait.
I'll be near playing with a celestial toy.
Not matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone.
It wouldn't be heaven for me."

Fabric Closet

Well I have been planning now for a couple of weeks to paint the walk-in closet off of the upstairs bedroom. So today was the big day. It got painted. It was an ugly old yellow and now it is bright white.

This closet is going to be turned into my new fabric closet where all my fabric stash is going to be stored. The small door you see is the door to the dormer where my new sewing room is going to be located. It is an absolute mess. I ended up putting a lot of stuff in there from the closet so it is overloaded! I can hardly fit in there now.

My next step is to get fabric shelves for the closet. I may end up going to Lowes or Menards to get lumber to cut and paint. Shelving is so expensive. I looked at Ikea and some other online companies, but uh I want to do this cheap and quick. My $ will need to go for drywall, insulation, and etc. to finish the dormer. What fun!!

March is here finally!

I am happy now that it is March. Though this past week has been hard losing Brit, I do have spring to look forward to and then SUMMER-my favorite season! Yippee!

My high energy from a few weeks ago got zapped last week, but I am starting to look at my list of "To Do's" again and getting my thoughts back in line. I actually have crossed some things off the list because they are done! woo hoo!

I may try and paint some this weekend-maybe. Well I am off for is a picture of me and Brit.
