- Woke up to an evasion of ants, yesterday morning on my kitchen counter and INSIDE my dishwasher. I also had some inside my BBQ grill on the patio - So that took up part of my day yesterday. So far so good today.
I forgot to mention that last week I lost a pound and a half! Yesterday I weighed in and re-gained a half a pound. Grrrrrrr.
We're been having mild temperatures for here - mid 90's to 100. However, tomorrow we are heading back up to the 105-110's for a few days. I am so, looking forward to Fall.
Last week, the Husband and I went up to the Subway Lava Tube - Amazing. It was pitch dark and he forgot a GOOD flashlight - we did manage to find a teeny-one in the glove-compartment. It barely worked so it was hard to really see. It was a bit scary for me at first, not knowing what to expect. I was surprised that my body, froze up with FEAR just because I couldn't see around me, as we stumbled over the rocky bottom. I kept thinking I would hit my head on something - then I got it in my mind, that maybe there are snakes in this lava tube which fReAkEd me out. The Husband asked me if I needed to go back to the car and while I really wanted to - I pressed on and finished. THAT MY DEAR LOVELIES, was a victory for me! It made me think of that scripture, Philippians 3:14,
"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward
in Christ Jesus."
Why is it, when you have work to do, the creative part of the mind, starts in with the constant nag,
"what about meeeeeeeee????"
So I got this big idea - to re purpose a couple of lamps that were my mother's lamps that I have in my living room. They work - and in their day, were nice lamps but so out-dated for now. It has to do with those dollar-store marble gems...Might do that, during this heat spell coming up. I will spring for new lamp shades - as soon as I can afford them. Also, as soon as I get some clear shellac, I will post some pictures of a garden-art piece I made. It's not completely done yet and not perfect by any means - I know my mistakes so next time I will create this piece better. It's pretty or at least I think so.
The Husband wants me to do a Avon-fundraiser for his VFW post. I can do that! I don't know when - he needs to get it all approved at their meeting.
Thank you to all that commented on my post about finances. I kinda got the Icks, after I posted that - like I am whining and crying poor-mouth and all. I just like to keep it real on this blog. Yeah it's tight every month around here but we keep on plugging along. I have done that so many times in my life, I am actually good at it -
