I hope all of you had a good weekend. I know I did. Richard and I worked in the garage most of the weekend. You see we had a few unpacked boxes ~ and by a few I mean dozens. Some are from the move to this house from the one 4 miles away in Melbourne in 2008. A few more of them are from the move from Tampa in 2007. Most, however, are from the move from Raleigh to Tampa in 2002. Yes, we have boxes we haven't unpacked in 8 yrs. How sad is that? Next weekend there is a community garage sale and we are taking that opportunity to go through all those boxes and see what we can get rid of. If we haven't needed it in the last 8 yrs do we really need it now?
Obviously some of the stuff we will keep. Some of the kids stuff from when they were babies... some old pics, etc. Our house in Raleigh was decorated VERY country ~ mauve, dusty blue... not really my kind of thing anymore so into the yard sale it goes. I don't have any pics of the disaster that is our garage...but trust me when I tell you ~ it's a mess. There are more than a few boxes that we will keep and to that end we have gotten some plastic bins to repack the stuff in.
Speaking of Goodwill... it's one of my favorite places to browse. I don't do the clothes or toys but I do love the housewares. I've gotten some great finds there. One of them was a plain ol' brown sandwich size plate... and here's what I did with it on Sunday night.
After my friend Jill zentangled the clipboard for me I got to thinking.. what else can I zentangle... Obviously you can't eat off it but I think it would look kinda cool up on the wall with one of those plate hangers.
After working on both Sat and Sun we went to Beef O'Bradys for a late lunch/early dinner. Hamburgers and beers never tasted so good. Here's my darling husband all cleaned up. Isn't he just so cute? I really got lucky with this guy! He puts up with so much from me and is so supportive of my "hobbies." That and he's a really good dad, still my best friend and I adore him.
Today, I saw something I haven't seen in a while.. A sky writer...
