We had a few more of those sunny mornings...
...turning into cloudy afternoons. No rain that I ever saw, but that's probably a good thing because it's been cold enough to snow with it being 30s overnight!
Pretty soon it will be time to store the fans for the winter. Feels cold enough right now, but I don't trust fickle Mother Nature. I haven't been using the fans for some time, but Karma has.
Yes, she's using the fan cord as a mid-air pillow.
Karma and her hard pillows.
I got a surprise in the mail from Linda, my oldest friend. Well, not oldest in age--LOL! I've known her since we moved in next door when I was five years old.
I was talking about wanting to make paper again this winter...
...and she went right out and picked tiny flowers from her yard...
...and sent me all these beauties!!
Linny! Linny! That just tickled my heart to pieces! Thanks so very much, girlfriend!! These tiny flowers are just perfect! And taping them inside the tagboard in the wax paper sandwich worked perfectly. They arrived in beautiful shape, as you can see. :) Many thanks!!
Meanwhile, Karma and I have been being lazy bums. (This photo really isn't upside-down...Karma was.)
Other than writing four letters, making up meals that can be nuked this week, washing clothes...well, all the usual...been staying away from the bedroom, moving carefully, and watching Netflix. But today it will be back to cleaning and organizing. I am hoping to finish up this week and be done-done-done!! Even this stubborn Swede has had about enough. Going on two months now--geez! Years ago I would have finished all this in one weekend. But talk about feeling like I have accomplished something when I am finally done. Wow!
Oh, and I did another marathon catching up online this weekend, too. Read everything, even if I didn't comment on every blog. :)
I'll be so glad when this project is done and I can spend some of my good hours actually playing with some of these art and craft supplies I've been moving around for lo these many weeks--LOL! My goal was to be done before October and it looks like I should make it--whoohoo!! Wish me luck! Then things can get back to normal around here...well, my normal--LOL! ;)
Say! I've been meaning to ask...how do you like my only posting on Mondays and Thursdays? I'm thinking of trying to keep it like this, but maybe throwing in an additional post once in a while. I know I am chatty and always have pictures. Maybe this takes up less of your time, you know?
Anyways, have a fulfilling week with lots of giggles! :)
