I'm feeling better today. I'm still a bit stuffed up, but much better than I was yesterday. That makes me feel it was probably allergies rather than a cold. That's good .... it means I don't have a week ahead of healing. I took medication at bedtime and slept like a rock, another nine hours. I usually sleep between seen and eight hours, so I don't think I'm lacking rest, but the extra sleep certainly hasn't hurt me.
I made my trip to Lowe's today, and came back with everything I needed. I was surprised that I found shelves that worked for every place that I've thought of needing some. I just knew I wouldn't be able to find one or two. So I spent more than I planned, but I'm glad to have them. I want to get my organization done before it gets cold. Part of the organization is in the well house, and while it is heated, it is not going to be pleasant standing on cold concrete while working. I want to work on that in the next few days. The portion in the house can be done when the outside is awful.
I also got lumber and supplies for a project a friend is helping me with. Whoever built the well house did a weird job. It looks nice, but there are some shortcuts that have lead to some wood rot. It can be fixed, but it is going to take a couple hours to repair. Then I can paint it. The same friend is coming over tomorrow and we are putting in the dog doors, back and front. I'm so glad his wife "loans him out"! But she's my friend, too, and she doesn't have to worry. He's way too young, younger than my son. He is a very sweet man, and he loves doing things for people. I've reached the point of needing some assistance on a few jobs, so thank goodness for him!
On the way down to Alamogrodo, I stopped at my favorite antique/collectible store, The Dusty Peddler in Tularosa. He has really quality stuff, not junk. I was looking for small tables to paint/refinish, and I didn't find any. I did find this ..................
I will paint the wood a different color, probably one or two of the colors in the fabric. The little casters are wonderful! I've been resting my feet on the coffee table, but it is hard and hurts my widdle heels! They feel so comfortable on this little stool.
I found a sofa table that I want, but I'm not sure it makes sense to get it right now. I have a drop leaf table behind the couch, and I want to keep it for overflow guests. I have no where to store it if I get the sofa table. Buuuuut .... the sofa table is so pretty! I will think on it and go back if I decide to get it.
And I went to Penney's while I was in Alamogordo. When I got out my sweaters yesterday, I realized that I really, really needed some new ones. So I thought I'd get 2 or 4 new ones and a couple pairs of jeans. I forgot they were having their 88¢ sale, you know, buy one and get the second for 88¢. Wanna guess what I came home with?
- 4 really nice sweaters
- 2 zippered sweaters with hoods
- 4 thermal hooded shirts
- 3 jeans (one wasn't on the 88¢ deal but was 50% off)
Now, for your viewing pleasure......
Life is beautiful!!!!
