A 'normal' Tuesday includes a movie at Starplex, Goodwill, and ART!
This was the very FIRST Tuesday in a very LONG time that Ruth Ann and I did all three!
Just in case you are worried about all the debris I drag home on a near weekly basis. yesterday I had a trunk FULL of donations. So much so that I had the helpers come unload it for me.
AND I did not even bring home as much as I took!!
AND I have another trunk load of toys to take to Amber for her to pass on.
What I DID bring home: Two Rooster Plates - because I love them so!
A Croft & Barrow purse - which I have already filled and am using!
Two cushions for a chair on my upper deck.
A pair of pants from The Gap - which I plan to wear tomorrow.
AND - my favorite!! TWO baby dolls!
On Monday, all four quads wanted a baby doll and I only had TWO!
They wanted a BABY doll - not a DOLL doll.
I promised them I would look for some at Goodwill the next day and I FOUND them!!!
I love it when that happens!!!
Thank you, Lord!
He blesses me in little ways like this.
Just look how similar they all look!
Same size and all bald!
They could be quadruplets!!
Our movie of choice was......
Our third activity of the day was ART!!
That's THE most important one!
Ruth Ann worked on her Santa.
Seems we paint Santa Claus year round!
I still have one to finish myself!
I worked on Dean's truck.
He came home one night and the truck caught on fire! He and Rufus were IN it!!
They got out but he couldn't rescue all his tools and treasures that a man carries around in his pick up.
A neighbor saw the flames and stopped to help.
Dean had beer in his truck - but it was hot.
The other guy had some so they sat on his tail gate and watched the truck burn.
He is still grieving over it.
While I was down there later and saw that burned skeleton, it looked like something I wanted to paint. And so I did! I still have another session on it before glazing it and calling it done.
Not sure if Dean would want it but I plan to offer it to Sherry.
We painted for an hour and a half and then Ruth Ann, Sherry and I sat in the living room and visited for an hour and a half. It was a PERFECT Tuesday!!
Wednesday is my 'Home' Day!
No make up, no leaving the house, just fluffing my nest and doing the odd and end chore.
It helps that I have my very own personal handy man!
I had to de-clutter a counter so he could put up a strip light for me.
Then I cleaned the kitchen.
Next he mended the sewing machine cabinet where a hinge had broken.
He tried one thing and then another but he did get it fixed!
He can fix anything!
I paid bills and did some writing, I read and played Scrabble.
We watched a little news and now we are about to watch Alaskan Bush People before going to bed.
