Oooohweeeee it was exciting yesterday. It's probably not what you think. We didn't get much rain, but we sure got big winds throwing limbs and leaves everywhere. The banging on my bedroom wall reminds me every time that I need to secure those two tall vines climbing the metal railing that has come loose. Bang bang bang ... all night long.
At first I thought someone was breaking in, but the alarm never went off, so there's that! It's the perfect start to a lovely day OUT. I'll explain later.
First ... meet Miss Jade. How could I have forgotten to introduce everyone. Barbara worked for SPCA for many years. She and Tom have helped many a critter have a better life. Ever since I've known them, they had a beautiful kitty named Pansy, who lived in their RV with them. Sadly Pansy passed away.
Miss Jade has taken over Pansys house guarding duties. Just look at those eyes. She's a beauty. I got in lots of scritches, pets and rubs. She was fascinated with the smell of Cooper on my hands. The best part, she's exceptionally good at keeping Barbara from falling out of her chair by laying in her lap for hours.
I really didn't get very much done. It's raining ... that's my excuse. I figured I better rest up because it's going to be a long week, but there on the table was my last Amazon order calling my name. It's been staring at me for several days now. I really wasn't that gung ho about this, but it wasn't going to get done by itself.
I drug the ladder into the room and grabbed my tape measure. There's just no easy way that I know of to hang drapery rods. They give you those little plastic things to stick in the wall to hold the screws, but they never work very well. Either the hole is too small and it won't fit, or I make the hole too big. Big sigh ... it was too big this time.
I finagled it with toothpicks ... at least I was inventive about it ... but it will require a trip to the big box store for bigger thingies. I don't even know what they are called. At any rate, I got it up, along with the quilt. There's actually room on the other side for one more, but I was done for the day. Something about climbing up and down the ladder twelve times wears me out!
