Saturday Ventures--a Jane and John Day

LONG day today but productive as I had many things to shop for in my finishing touches of our new room upstairs and today led to:

  • wearing pencil jeans a bit too tight but the little bit of spandex made the difference.
  • jumping up and down I didn't have to drive the 30 mile round trip.
  • cooking a great lunch with a nap afterwards for an hour prior to taking off.
  • watching Abbie prefer cinnamon toast with butter versus the whole wheat version. She's a hoot.
  • lie in the new mattresses and felt like I slept on air, WAY up there. Those mattresses are jump-into mattressses. Need bedsteps.
  • spending an hour at the Homestead House in Clarksville picking out coverlets which will have to be taken back tomorrow, didn't work....but  I did find what I needed on another place and will accent with a Black and mustard, Lover's Knot throw to the end of each bed.
  • finally figured out a night light for the bathroom, so I won't be blindsided with light at 5 in the morning
  • ate supper at Taco Bell, Nachos that is comfort shopping treat.
  • did a happy dance when I found the perfect prim towels in Black Lovers' Knot for my cottegy kitchen redo.
  • found the black sillouhettes of George Washington and Martha in 5 x 7 frames for accent pieces.  A little splurge but you live once, right?
  • Looked around the prim shop at things, saying, I could stitch this if I had the time........
  • having a aweful, frettful decision on the color of a quilt for the beds but finally made it......drove BG crazy.
  • left my wallet on top of the carpet samples at Lowes and didn't remember until check out. Watched BG turn red to white to white to red. He said , "Damn, I'm not in the mood to chase people tonight!!!"
  • Wallet found undisturbed and new my guardian angel was protecting it.
  • did another who jazz dance when I found 4 and 1/2 YARDS of stitchable wool linen all in a big fold and read for primitive stitching.  All 4 yards for 19.00 dollars. I was stunned. Great quality, no odors, stains.
  • watched Abbie chase a ghost spirit in our house tonight. She does this from time to time. She is very fearful of it and if she sees it near my closet she backs up barking and her hair is raised. She did this for 30 minutes. Sometimes I wonder if Ren visits his laundry pile at night.........she walked like she was walking behind him to her water bowl and trying to catch the scent. STRANGE.
  • this led to reading ghost stories tonight at midnight and both of us are spooked. It' just like camp:p
  • BG got to explore his man cave i.e. Lowe's store.  He is all about function and me?  well, I like it to blend ,match and look right.
  • Decided I need to design a Man Cave sign because every single man needs one.

Love you too

  1. never a dull momment!
    thanks for these nice patterns you have been posting.....soon as I can squeeeze them into the rest of my Crazy stuff.......
    When I was a little girl I had an imaginary friend, maybe Miss Abby does too!

  2. Wow , you were BUSY chickie!! It all sounds very exciting! Love the new design too!

  3. Sounds like you had a full and productive day. That bit about Abbie barking is weird. But the theory of her barking at Ren sounds like a good one. :)
    Love the little design. Thank you.
    Have a wonderful Sunday.

  4. Now that sounds like a great Jane and John day!
    PS...thanks for the new chart...woohoo!

  5. Quite the interesting post - but there's good news hidden in there, as it sounds like BG is recovered from whatever was ailing him. Glad to hear it!
