A Timeout Stool

The secret to great children is
"Always Eat Dessert First"!


If you never eat dessert,
 or if you are
and have a paint happy hubby, 
then you will probably need a time-out stool!

Cutting A Circle On A Table Saw



It was a day of planting trees and fighting off swarming bees. 


grow my little babies!


 After picking up never ending storm remains and fighting off more bees......


 I backed into this pile only to get a sliver in my butt!


  I also cut two circles on a table saw.....I really did.
(and fought off more bees)
and didn't cut my fingers off...


You can see how to do it on this YouTube video. 


 I don't think Mr. Circle guy invented the wheel but he
 showed me how to make one, so cheers to him.

I found this cool thing on Pinterest that involves circles, which I would show you,
 but then I would have to kill you and hide your body in my
 basement somewhere, and that might smell. 
 After all, I just finished cleaning it out. 
But do stay tuned to see what becomes of my tablesaw circles.

No harm will come to you!!!
I PROMISE.

Now to find a mirror with ample magnification
for butt sliver removal.
Cheers.

The Beating Hearth Goes Public

My dear bloggy friend Heather, from
created this treasured one of a kind pillow for me!
I guess she must like me or perhaps she's waiting for me to win the lottery so I can share my winnings.  I am pretty sure it's the latter as my odds are pretty good.  I buy a ticket usually once a year and I am banking my retirement on it.


And now you can have one of her gorgeous works of art too!

She has finally started her own business, and will create
 custom quilts which will surely become treasures.

Here are a few examples of her creative talents at work.


You can jump on the bus and

 visit her at 


Cheers

Reclaiming My Basement - Part Two



After consuming half a Costco chicken due to nail breakage (fingernails not finishing nails), I was ready to tackle room two.  


 A transition between two pours was fixed with some floor leveling compound, and all the sins of previous tenants were hidden in a day...well actually four days as I am a bit of a turtle, and if you factor in trips for supplies, shopping for the perfect flooring, and by perfect, I mean budget friendly, then add another five days to that cuz I'm a turtle, 

 I think we are up to two and a half weeks give or take a month.



  Moving shelving units around and sorting through Mr. FT's beer brewing hobby, left me feeling good about who the hoarder in the family really is! 





Cristina, can you spot the red lamps in the picture below? 
 It's kinda like Where's Waldo!




KIDS eh!

Yikes.  I went to the local building store to pick up a transition strip...
$32.99 for what I don't even think was an eight foot piece. FOR ONE PIECE?????
Who likes matchy matchy anyways.

  I am looking forward to searching for the perfect wall covering to hide more bodies, ( You can see the body hiding post HERE!) and all of this Spanish style stucco that I swear, was put on with epoxy, but only in certain places of course...... arggggggg. 

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated and pondered
 while I start on the second half of that chicken.
Cheers.


OH NO
Look what happened last week 


How can I be sad about a tree when I am looking at this guy!
