An Owie and a Wowie

The Owie:

Homemaker is a dangerous profession.

Just look what happened when I got my pinky stuck in the vacuum cleaner during yesterday's organizing spree.

It ripped that baby right off well below the quick.
Note the redness and swelling.
A lesser woman may have been diverted from her mission after that mishap. But not me, perseverance runs in my family. :)

Yes, it hurts!

The Wowie:

A drawer in my kitchen that has nothing in it!

It used to hold place mats, but they were moved to one of the china cabinets.

Now I am leaving it empty just because it's such a novelty to have an empty drawer!

How long do you think it will stay empty? LOL.

Did you notice my new header?

Those pink and black star blocs are what I have been making the past two mornings. That's what I do at 5:00 a.m. Today it was 4:00 a.m., but who's going to quibble over an hour?

Well, it's nearly 6:00 a.m. right now so I am off to shower. Depending on the weather, I may be off on a little overnight trip today. A woman can only take so much cleaning and organizing before she needs a little FUN!

I hope you all have a great last weekend of 2007!


  1. You early bird! Nice squares though.
    Ouch is right-sorry about your boo-boo. Keep it padded until it grows in again.
    I finally lost the scab on my wound exactly a month later and it's tender. I can relate to boo boos.
    Have a great weekend-hope you get to go someplace.

  2. Great header, is!
    Ouch!! Poor you, that owie looks bad!
    An empty drawer in the kitchen, I'm thinking it won't be empty for very long, at least it sure wouldn't at my house.(maybe a day??)
    Good for you, a weekend deserve it!!
    Your mornings are way too early..6 am is the earliest for me.

  3. With all the work you've been doing you deserve some R&R! The topper quilt squares are very interesting. I do like the black and pink color combination. I haven't started undecorating yet. One more family gathering here tomorrow.Have a great weekend!

  4. Owie! That looks so painful!

    Empty drawers are a novelty around here too. Even when I empty them they don't stay that way for long. :)

  5. Yikes! that nail looks bad,have you tried that stuff called 'new skin' or liquid bandage on it (basically some kind of nail polish-like stuff w/ antiseptic in it) it will protect it and keep it from hurting so much. love the new header. I admire your homemaking skills , you get so much done!

  6. OUCH!! That looks like it really hurts! I haven;t even thought about taking the tree down. Maybe next weekend.

  7. Yes, you get your little hiney out there and have a little FUN!
    Enough with the organizing!
    Great header Zoey!

  8. OUCH!
    That looks awful, I hope it is feeling better.
    I do think it is time to get back to work, Happy New Year Y'all!
