Do you see the cloud hedge?
This looked like a hedge of clouds...
...all along the horizon.
Little things make me smile. :)
This machine loaf is a potato bread recipe I was given by Connie over at Far Side of Fifty.
The top kind of collapsed, but it fits better into the toaster--LOL! I grabbed Leah's old yeast, so that may be why it is flat-topped. This bread is so moist I don't even have to toast it to munch it down. Thanks, Connie!! Delicious.
Since I knew I had red towels coming from IKEA (yes--RED towels--going wild and crazy over here!), I decided to take down the shower curtain I bought in 1990. Nothing but a clear liner now, so this ultra shy girl needs a bright new shower curtain pretty soon--LOL!
I also took down a lot of pictures off the walls (that won't fit with my plan for that new bright color scheme--not that I have much wall space to begin with--LOL!) and hauled them out to the garage. All this change had Karma wound up tightly, as she doesn't care much for big changes...or company, for that matter.
I thought I'd take a before picture of the art desk area.
I am so excited! Dagan and Leah called from Minneapolis and said there was a desk--well, a table that I will use as a desk--almost identical to what I had picked out but with a glass top! Which is what I wanted in the first place! And it was the same price--$39.99! Awesome!
It's a little smaller in width, but it has a glass top! Nothing better for an art table in my book. (Notice the black top and red legs...a red accent theme, ya think--lol!)
Anyways, I pulled out the chair to get a better shot of the "before" folding table and Karma came racing in (from the disturbed bathroom she had been fussing over) sounding like a herd of angry horses and flew up on the chair ready for a fight!
If there had been another cat around she would have beat the crap out of it...you know that kind of cat mood?
I have told you that Karma is moody...
...but I so seldom happen to be taking pictures...
...right at the moment she is majorly pissed off at me for messing with her world.
I told her to knock it off.
She was not happy...
...but when she saw I wasn't willing to play her victim cat...
I told you she is highly opinionated and moody--LOL! There's some proof!
Meanwhile, I tried once more with this gelato sticks and smearing them with baby wipes technique for a background.
I just don't think I have the knack or something. Or maybe it's because I have metallics. They're okay, but I think it just makes me want to get out my watercolors. ;)
Dagan and Leah brought Leah's brother Aaron to the airport Sunday morning. He was home on leave from the Navy before heading off to be stationed in Japan! Wow! Talk about an adventure!
This morning before they went to work Dagan and Leah dropped off the table top...
...red legs, the long black shelf...
...and I have red towels in the washer (second time--trying to reduce dye leakage). And the library lady emailed this morning. Her volunteer, Holly, is gone already and never told Pam about our book date. So Pam should be here any minute. Gotta fly! See you again soon! :):)
