There’s something I dragged out of one of my closets this morning that you haven’t seen before. Do you know what it is?
No, it isn’t a dog. Although by some act of magic Abi managed to slip into one of the closets last week and shut the door behind her. Still don’t know how she managed that. By the time I figured out where she was, she was a little spooked by the whole episode.
When I bought this chaise sofa, this big ottoman came with it. When you slide it up next to the sofa, as you see here, it becomes a full-sized bed. Not that I have any overnight guests.
The pupsters quickly took charge of it. They want to know why I didn’t drag this out of the closet a long time ago.
I have gone stark raving quilt crazy this week. I started digging around in the other closet in the old trunk, and I thought: Why do I have all these quilts folded up in here where I can’t enjoy looking at them? So out some of them came.
I know. It looks like a quilt show came to town. No one can ever accuse me of not going overboard with whatever I do.
Then I got to looking at this star quilt that I painstakingly appliqued all these stars to years ago, and it just looked, well, huge. So I put this mirror over it to give it a focal point.
So now you’re scratching your head and thinking: Then where did the little cart go? Well, here it is.
So now you’re thinking: Didn’t that red bench go where that table fan is? I know. A bit of ugly. Got to keep it real. Hot as all get out here.
You’re probably now looking up at the far right, wondering what on earth that is sticking out.
While I was digging around in the closets, I reached up and grabbed that red basket you see nailed to the wall. Out of it fell this doll. I started to toss it back in. Then thought: I’ll just stick her in the basket when I nail it to the wall. I made her many moons ago.
And yes, those are ugly electrical cords. Keeping it real, like I said. So it was the doll’s feet you saw sticking out in the photo before, just so’s we’re straight about everything.
I have the same red and white buffalo checked curtains for this window that I have for the bedroom window. But I haven’t even opened the box yet.
My little dining spot. If you blinked you didn’t see it. Look over to the right. That’s my new red crock pot I ordered from Walmart for $17.
I hope to cook up some lunches come fall that are more nutritious and have a little more substance that what I eat all summer. Which is whatever I reach into the fridge and grab.
So there you go. This all started because I looked up the other day and saw some nail holes and I don’t have the paint to match it, but I tried anyway. What resulted was shiny smudges here and there on the wall. Which naturally bothered me.
|(Abi, do you have a stench to you that Charlie’s curious about?)|
Which resulted in my digging through the many things in my closet and grabbing some quilts.
Then this morning I was trying to get to something in the other closet in my bedroom, and couldn’t even walk into the closet for all the stuff I have in there.
Which I shall be cleaning out and organizing when it isn’t so hot that I have to take a deep breath, dive in, and hurry back out quick as I can.
So now you see what can happen when I don’t plan on doing anything, and suddenly I’ve done all this. One thing just manages to lead to another.
But the pupsters are happy to have more couch to snooze on. So if the pupsters are happy, Mama is happy.
