Today on Tuesday
It is another beach day here on the ole farm. I am keeping
my fingers crossed that it will burn off in the afternoon and
be a nice sunny day. I wonder why gloomy mornings make
me feel well gloomy. I ran across words that Charles Dickens
made up and did you know gloomy is one of them. He made up
lots of words. I need to go back and find the list.
There is a blog I like to read sometimes. It is called Crap I have made.
When I am going to do a post that is what I always want to call my post.
So that is what today is, about a wall hanging I made.
Sorry it isn't a better picture but it is cloudy outside.
I bought a whole box of horse shoe nails. They are the best
things ever so I keep wanting to make things with horse shoe
nails in it. They feel so nice to my hands when I hold them and the
weight just feels good and they are shiny. I think the box has something like 500 in it so I will
have horse shoe nails the rest of my life.
Here is a close up of the chicken. She turned out okay.
I wish I hadn't put the polka dots so close to her eye.
I get carried away sometimes.
Here is a close up of my star. I really like the shape of that
star. I was going to hang something else from the nail on the
chicken but I liked the star.
You know sometimes I wish I could have a house that looks
like something in a magazine. I think though what I have come
to decide is this is it, I like old wood, and quilts and I like handmade
things. I have tried and tried to change me but I always come back
to it. I just like old looking things.
I like things that if my kids and grand kids touch them or say play football
in the house they won't get broke. When people come over I want them to
want to come back.
Well it will another day of weed chopping. I set an impossible goal for myself.
I would like to be finished by April first. I know if I could work 8 hours
a day I might get finished. I worked 3 hours yesterday and after I got dinner cooked
and cleaned up last night, I wanted to cry every time I had to do something else.
I hobbled around like I was 100 years old. I feel better today so I can do it again.
So have a wonderful day, today.
