Good morning Anj
Happy Thursday! Have you had a busy week? Having nicer weather so you can be outside a bit? Don't you just love seeing all the pretty flowers and green leaves this time of year?
Did you find a home for all your new "treasures"? I picked up a nice wooden and wire candle holder the other day for $5.00. I think I am going to paint it. I'll try to do before and after pics. Yesterday, after my Dr. appt. I ran in to GW. Would you believe I didn't find a darn thing that I really wanted? That doesn't happen too often, thank goodness! LOL
I've been doing some yard work, deadheading roses, and planted some new grass seed DH ordered for me because I was complaining about my grass. I've had to use some weed killer on it this year, all the yards seem to have been invaded by this clover looking stuff that gets little "stick tights" on it. They are "prickly" and really get tangled in my dog's hair. Don't remember it ever being a problem before. Anyhow, I've sprayed it twice and now we fertilized and planted this new seed. Keeping my fingers crossed that all this will solve the problem. Neighbor was telling me that her DH uses a "preemergent" on the lawn every spring that keeps the weeds from ever growning. Got to remember to look for that next year.
Only thing I've painted that I haven't shown yet is a couple of pickle jars I painted roses on. The jars were so nice I just hated to throw them out! Now I have two prettily painted jars taking up space in my cabinet! LOL
I've been going through all my books and making copies of things I might need/want to use while the big copy machine is still here. I think it will go the end of this month. DH is laughing at me--says we can always buy a small one--but I know the little ones don't always work as good as these big office types. And I love the enlarge/reduce feature.
Well, I've got to go to the grocery store and still have a bit more deadheading to do on the roses. Got to get back to the books too. After this, maybe I'll have a bunch of projects all picked out so I can start a painting spree! Wouldn't that be fun???? LOL
Take care and let me hear what you've been up to, okay?
