I have had a busy weekend working on Christmas decorations. Remember all those styrofoam balls I was going to toss out, but saved...just in case? Well, I thought of something to do with them. I tore up wrapping paper
and used decoupage glue to adhere the paper to the balls. They are still wet here which is why they have a milky color. I will put a few more coats of glue on and will show them to you when (if?) I decide to use them.
I worked a bit on the big wreath for work. I am just not really into doing that...it is huge and I just can't seem to get enthused with it.
Last night my refrigerator decided to die. Ever had pepermint stick ice cream turn to liquid and fill your freezer? Let me tell you, when you open your freezer and see pink sticky liquid all over, it is not a pretty sight. Water was running out on the floor, too. I wasn't surprised as the refrigerator is old. It served me well during its long life. Today we went out and bought a new one which will be delivered tomorrow.
This afternoon I threw away all those plants I brought inside last month. I don't know what ever possesed me to bring them in. I know I can't stand the mess of dead leaves falling all over and water drips, etc. I was just going to water them today and then I thought I would take each one outside and shake off the dead stuff. When I went to take them down, I noticed water on the top of my china cabinet. I must have overfilled a few of them. I decided then and there that I had had enough of caring for them. What a mess I made hauling them outside....dead stuff all through the house...had to vacuum every room again. I also tossed a catcus I have had for about six years. I never did like it, but it was a gift from one of my customers so I felt I had to keep it. Six years is long enough....it's gone now,too.
We went to a birthday party/dinner for my 11-year old niece today. When we got home I had to clean up the mess in the kitchen (from the crafting)so it would look decent when the delivery guys bring the refrigerator.
Now I am going to spend an hour or on the computer and then its off to bed.
Tomorrow we are supposed to get our first snow. Probably only flurries.
Hope all of you had an enjoyable weekend.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
