What a beautiful dawn today!
I finally hung the philodendron in the porch.
This morning it is wildly gusty and the plant is being buffeted by the wind--but it looks good out there.
The art table got cleared off--tada! Haven't decided what to fill it up with next. ;)
All the jars were shiny cleaned and Caroline put them back up for me.
Nice to have them back where they belong. Thanks, Caroline! :)
Last night I worked on cards. Funny--I joined StampTV (online) and earlier last evening I took notes on all the recent challenges (I've never participated before). It was only after I finished this card that I realized I had combined the notes from TWO different challenges--ROFL! One challenge was to make a card with red, blue, and yellow (colors I would never think to put together and not sure I like them much) and the other one was to use the shapes--the two rectangles, an oval, and a flower or bow and they show you basically where to place them.
I keep chuckling to myself over it! I wasn't even sure I wanted to actually post anything in the first place and now--so very silly! They'd think I can't read--ROFL! I'll work on them some more this weekend. If I am going to post in a challenge I have till Monday. It's kind of interesting to have a challenge--something to go by.
Afterwards I made a very simple card...for no reason...just because I loved the papers.
I watched movies during the night while I worked on cards. All were okay. Nothing to rave about, I guess--but good to make cards by--hehe! I watched The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (fanciful), Sherlock Holmes (interesting), and It's Complicated (cute).
Let's see...I still have some soreness in my cheek. If it flares up again I will call the dentist. I never took any pain pills this month--which felt like a real accomplishment under the circumstances--hehe! No IBS pills, either--and now have quit the acid reflux ones, too. No meds at all right now! Tada!
Dagan and Leah will be gone over the long weekend. I will pop in on Sammy and Annie on Sunday. My days and nights are still flipped. They always flip back eventually. Teaches me patience, I guess. :)
I do plan to play around with the www.StampTV.com challenges this weekend. Just fun to try something a little different--whether I actually enter or not. Supposed to be hot and hotter. Mid-80s today and up to 90s the next couple days. I'll have to close up and get the AC on before I go to bed or when it gets too warm in here, whichever comes first. ;)
Beautiful days, tho, for the holiday. Blue skies and sunny! People may not be able to keep the food on their paper plates, but they won't have to wear jackets or carry umbrellas, that's for sure. On the whole, a pretty decent weekend for remembering our departed. Hope it is a good one for everybody! :):)
