Hello Blogland!! Is everyone having a wonderful weekend??? We manged to get a deluge of 3 inches of much-needed rain today. My gardens love it.
I was off Friday so I get this brilliant idea since the fibromyalgia was feeling good to tidy up the gardens a bit as they were getting quite tatty looking. The weekend of September 15th will be a huge festival in my town to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War Battle of Antietam (the bloodiest day in American history) They expect maybe 50,000 people to descend upon our little town of 700. WOW!!! I live on the main crossroad so we want to make sure the house looks nice for all the tourists. Miss Kae is demanding a new outfit for her many fans.
So, the weather is cool, I’m feeling spry and out I go at 8am. I drug my poor battered body back in around 5pm. The gardens look great but I am still recuperating. The hubster said “You overdid it” Yeah, Yeah, Yeah…but at least it’s DONE.
I had planned to reorganize the Craft Dungeon a.k.a. the basement on Saturday but I was just too sore. I needed to go to the post-office to mail some parcels and the hubster asked if I could go to town to the hardware store for him
Going to town means a 30 mile round trip. I live in the boonies, folks!! If I’m going to drive that far I’m going to make my thrift rounds and hit up yard sales on the way. The yard sales were pathetic. The thrifts, however, yielded some goodies!!
I scored some great wardrobe items, too. Pickings have been a bit slim lately.
Since it was very cool today I pulled a jacket out to wear to church. I have to admit the shoes started paining me because I stood more than I planned. They really need the cushioning of tights because they RUBBED my bare feet!!
Stop back tomorrow for Makeover Monday #2 and see what I’ve done with some tacky 70′s Home Interior pictures!!
