My mind was aching...
And you shook me all night long
OK - I hope there are a few peeps out there who remember AC/DC from the early 80's.
When we moved to Oklahoma we heard quite a bit about the ever changing weather. One thing we did not expect was a week-end like this one. As of this afternoon we have had 13 earthquakes. Really??!!!?? Two of them were large ones - ok, those of you in California are probably laughing at me right now - but we had a 4.9 and a 5.6. Uhmm....Yowza. These were our first earthquakes that really felt like, well, earthquakes. It was very unnerving. To those of you who live with this often - my hat's off to you. It is more than a little shaking as I always thought. It is very difficult to walk during one, they are very loud, and it gives you a horrible vertigo type feeling for a few minutes. It is actually very frightening. Even though we could see and feel the house moving we have not found any damage - woot hoot!!!
I have taken a mini break these past few days after the 31 days challenge. That was very time consuming and again I am in awe of those of you that blog every day. I will have to say that even though it was time consuming it was also very motivational. I felt like I HAD to work on my unfinished projects because I had said that I would and actually had put it on my blog. You know - where every one would see.
Here are the benefits that really scream at me... I have 2 "project" spots that I
I do not think these have ever both been totally empty at the same time!
Thank you 31 day challenge!
And you may remember my huge fail on wrapping a lamp with twine here that ended with the exploded glue gun. I finally made it to Hobby Lobby to get a new glue gun last night and today attempted once again to simply wrap the lamp with jute
Success!!! I discovered that 1) do not rush!!! 2) my old glue gun must have been getting ready to kick the bucket for quite a bit. With my old glue gun I could not put just a little dab of glue - there was always a large glob of glue. That actually made the biggest difference,
I was going to make a lamp shade to go with it because the old shade looked like it belonged in my great-grandmother's house (and not in a cool vintage way). I found the cover it your self shade on sale for $12. Not bad. But then at Wally World I found this BHG shade ready to go for $10 - SCORE
Looove it!! It goes perfect with what I want to do in the master bedroom. ( I am just a tad slow getting going with the bedroom). Oh = and while I was at Hobby Lobby I found this blue pumpkin that is the perfect fall decoration for our bedroom. And it was half off - woot hoot!!
Until next time
(and hopefully no shaking)
