Hubby called me at the shop the other day and "We're going to paint the outside of the house". What? Why now? Will it really help sell out house I wonder? Why couldn't we have done it earlier so we could enjoy living in a nicer looking house? Whatever. Here's the choices:
CHOICES, CHOICES hmm...Our house is a colonial, like the big southern plantation homes. Hmmm...Just white, please. Like the color it is now. Maybe paint the door red instead of black and paint the shutters black like they are now, thank-you. That was easy. BTW, I'm not lifting a brush to help. Wanted: Real men
Now for the incredibly talented people of the embroidery world. I love this type of embroidery I just didn't know the name of it. I know, they just recently let me out from under that rock. I love the 3-D effect. Now I know what I want to do to embellish that darn jacket that hangs there everyday saying, "Aren't ya done with the kitchen yet?, When ya gonna work on me?" The DH says no more spending (that means yarn and crafty stuff) since we are spending on the house fix up. Maybe they have a Brazilian emb. book at the library?

Off to the grocery store for a variety of things to drink. It's hot and muggy and I want beverages at my fingertips! Have a wonderful fall weekend everyone!
