Tomorrow, I am taking a personal day.  After a crazy hectic week, I am looking forward to having a low-key day.  And by low-key, I mean I am going to get up, take HJ to school, go for a run, mow the yard, go to HJ’s school for lunch, get things ready for a party next week, take the dog on a walk, take library books back,  run to the store, possibly paint a thing I recently found and go to HJ’s school carnival.  But at least I am not trying to do all of that AND working 8 hours, right?

And that thing I found that I want to paint?  This large metal container.


It was in my grandparent’s basement and apparently contained biscuits at some point.  I think it would be cute painted and made into a planter for the front porch.  What color should I go with?  Or is this some priceless antique I am thinking of ruining?

My sister’s family recently got a new puppy.  I got to meet him this past weekend, and I completely wanted to stash the little snuggle bug in my purse.

HJ decided this week that t-ball is boring.  I would be lying if I said I disagree.  I mean, it’s so slow-paced.  And on top of that, he sits in the dug out most the time.  Then, when they take the field, there is no one who can really catch.  Or throw.  So, I see where he is coming from.  I am sure it is more fun as the kids understand more.  I hope.

2 Thoughts on “Thursday Night Ramblings

  1. I might do a little resarch on the writing that’s on the bucket to see what you’ve got yourself! If it’s not too special, I’d paint it and then take some sandpaper over the letters so you can still kind of read what it says. It looks really cool! Can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  2. I think the bucket is cute on it’s own now, but I’m also terrified of spray paint…I have no artistic skills.
