Do you ever have days when you feel like you’re just going from one thing to another to another? Me too! Today was one of those days – it started out with this:
I was there by 8:00 this morning, spent over, well let’s just say over my budget, only to get to the car and find I didn’t have the Diet Dr. Peppers I had paid for. I went all the way back in to the service desk, all the way to the very back of the store to get another carton and back to my car. You know the best part? A good part of my exercise for the day was done – you gotta’ love that. :)
Back home, unload, put away, change clothes and spend a couple of hours doing this:
The sunroom/den needed to be painted before the new floor is put in next week. It has really high ceilings that require a ladder. I can’t pick up our ladder, let alone climb it – it’s really heavy because it’s one of those kind that remind me of the robot toys that you turn this way and that and they become something else…know what I mean? So I taped all the parts from about my eye level down and my husband did the top. There’s really not much wall to paint in here because 3 walls are brick and most of the 4th is a rock fireplace. And on the wall part are 4 windows and 2 patio doors. Lots of taping. Lots and lots of taping. And more taping. And then he painted while I supervised. :) Oh and “we” painted it Faded Burlap. Really, that was the name of it. You can see it, can’t you?
I got to pick up two of my grandchildren from school. In my new car. Sometimes after school we stop at Sonic for slushies. Not today. Not in my new car. I substituted Chips Ahoy and milk when we got home. Blame me?
Time for supper:
Mexican Soup – this is so good and so easy you won’t believe it. Want the recipe? I knew you would:
2 cans Campbells White and Wild Rice Soup
1 can Chicken Broth
1 can Rotel Tomatoes
1 family size chicken – chopped
Heat and eat! Of course you want to sprinkle some grated cheese on top, and maybe some chopped green onions, a dollop of sour cream and some crumbled chips. My husband loves this and he hates soup!
Finally I got to work on this:
This is Potted Geraniums from Primitive Gatherings. Aren’t those colors wonderful. Honestly, their wools are to die for – hand dyed, soft and really spectacular to stitch on.
You know time is almost up for the Fall Into Fall Giveaway. If you haven’t entered you’re gonna’ want to so go here to do that.
