A Few More Finds...

We've been busy remodeling around the house but I have managed to find a few more items for the Scavenger Hunt. By this time next week we should have the house back together. It's been a long 14 months, patience are wearing thin but we're almost there. I'll be spending Labor Day weekend putting the house back together and I couldn't be Happier. OK, enough about the house, here are the items I found last week.

#13 A fence, actually a piece of a fence.
I'll bet it would be prettier if the lavender were still in bloom.
I'll tell you more about that some other time.
#14 A stained glass object or a mosaic
This is my second mosaic, I will have one
of these in my garden next Spring.

#16 A windmill

Moments Of The Week...

I'm Feeling Old Moment

As I was opening the mail this week I came across an envelope from AARP. My husband has been receiving these for awhile now so imagine my surprise when I saw that it was for me. Hey people, I don't need a reminder. Thank you very much!

WTH Moment
A conversation between my daughter and my niece at work this week.
D: "She was being held in the SHU"
N: "What is a SHU"
D: "SHU stands for Solitary Holding Unit"
N: "Sorry I don't speak prison"
Me sitting at the desk next to them thinking WTH!
Apparently my daughter is learning to speak prison while watching Orange Is The New Black.
OUCH Moment
We are doing some work around the house this week. I needed to take a few things off the top of our dining room hutch so that we could move it away from the wall. I thought it would be a good idea to stand in a dining room chair with arms. Turns out it was NOT! While stepping down from the chair I managed to hit my leg on the arm of the chair. It now looks like I have two knees on my right leg. I spent my evening sitting in a chair, elevating my leg and icing it on and off for six hours. It still looks bad today but isn't causing me much pain.

This is not my knee, its the knot that is 1to 2" inches below it!

This is how I spent six hours of my evening.

Enjoy your weekend!

Sunflare And A Plane...

I've often wondered how people capture sunflare with their phones. I still haven't figured it out but I accidently got a photo with sunflare and plane. I am hoping to get my Rebel out to shoot a few photos for the Scavenger Hunt but I rarely have it with me when out and about. Its been forever since I've used it, maybe soon but if not at least I'm checking items off the list with my iphone. I would like to get a good walk around lens for my Rebel but am unsure what that might be...anyone have a favorite?

Moments Of The Week...

I got the idea for this post here. I read her blog now and then but I'm pretty much a jeans and t shirt kind of gal.

Hey Doesn't That Guy Look Familiar Moment

The husband and I were given tickets to a Colts game last Sunday. (Thanks Mark) It was a first for me, the husbands been a few times. We were sitting in our seats and I happened to look over my shoulder and see a guy that looked familiar. While I'm not a big NFL fan I do know a little about it and some of the players. I said to my husband, hey isn't that Jeff Saturday sitting behind us. He glanced around and said no, that looks like him but he is to small. Well, turns out that I was right and that Jeff has just lost some weight since retiring from the NFL. So I asked him to sign our tickets.

And I guess that wasn't enough for me, I also had to have a picture.

The Colts lost but I think meeting Jeff made it all worth while. He's a pretty awesome guy!

My Everything Looks Good Moment

You can read this post to see what I'm talking about. I've had an Ultrasound and another procedure done in the last couple of weeks and yesterday I got the results. The doctor said " Everything looks good". And the best part is that I will not have to see him again unless there are some very significant changes. Now I think I'll go have that drink I've been wanting for the last couple of weeks.

Enjoy your weekend!

Busy Building Coffins...

Post that as your Facebook status and see what kind of comments/phone calls you get! LOL
My Granddaughter will be turning 5 soon and she is having a Monster High themed party. My daughter wanted to buy bags but I had the not so bright idea to build coffins from a pattern I found on Martha Stewarts site to hold the party favors. It seems that they are not that simple to build especially when you are building 30 of them. I feel like I've been working on them for weeks but its really only been a few hours here and there. They are all completed and ready to send off to my daughter to add Monster High stickers, fill with favors and close up with twine. I'm thinking that in the future I will just keep my ideas to myself. Coffin building IS NOT for me!
