I’m working on two big projects right now. One is an old sewing machine cabinet and the other is a display case. They both turned out to be more than I can handle. Thank goodness for my husband. He can see past the current condition, see my future vision, and can fix what I find perplexing. He did an awesome job fixing both pieces and … Continue reading I Keep Trying!
I try really hard to get outside by 7:00 in the morning to feed the fish, walk the dogs around the house and water the plants. It’s too hot for that. If one stays out until 12:00 it’s too late. And it’s exhausting! Sweating is not good for the body (in my world). I’ve been doing a lot of menial things – like cleaning out … Continue reading It Is So Hot!
It’s been a few days, but I have a ton of excuses. I had three projects to finish, our daughter’s birthday, and Sophie had to go to the vet.

Yesterday it cost me $100 to get Sophie, Mandy and Carrie’s rabies shots. … Continue reading My Dogs

I could quit thinking, I could make a list instead of doing things randomly. I could actually complete something. My brainstorming causes issues and I’m … Continue reading It’s Rough Being Retired!
A week ago my husband and I went to Copperas Cove to a really cool place called Home Base. They aren’t as large as Lowe’s or Home Depot, but they have a lot of the same thing – home improvement items. They don’t carry the same items, but their prices are so much cheaper and one can improvise with what they carry. I love going … Continue reading I Took On Too Much!
Have you ever watched Flea Market Flip on HGTV? Lara Spencer of Good Morning America is the host, has written several books on flipping furniture, and knows a lot. About once a month she hosts the show. They have two couples who get to go to a humongous flea market with $500 and an hour or so to hunt for items they can transform into … Continue reading A Small Rant
