This will be a hodge-podge of information today. First of all, I worked and worked on a spring wreath for my front door. We live on two acres, and our house sits back a way from the road. Because of that, I wanted a solid-colored wreath that could be seen as people drive by. So…stores never have what I want, Martha Stewart is too expensive, blah, blah, blah. I came up with this:
My husband’s first supportive comment? “That’s pretty bright.” Grrrr. Then, exactly two days later, we had a huge wind storm. I was afraid the wreath would blow away. Well, duh. I opened the door and the wreath FLEW inside the house, smacked into the chandelier, and shattered into this:
My husband’s second supportive comment? “Yeah, I didn’t really like that wreath anyway.” Say what?????????? Do you SEE how many gerber daisies are on that sucker? My hands had blisters from the wire cutters, and I have two burn marks from the glue gun to show for it! I am currently debating what to do. I’m too angry to fix it right now. Instead, it will sit on my coffee table–that’s in my dining room.
Post #2…1a…second half?
I am a high school teacher. Have I told you that? Part of my “revelation process”. Early this morning one of my co-workers died unexpectedly, and we were told a couple of minutes before the bell rang. We are all in shock. This was supposed to be her last year. She was months away from retiring. My reminder from this loss? See below.
Here’s to you, Bev.
