scratched my head and realized that would never happen. Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get but be assured you’ll come across a few worms from time to time.
In the meantime I’ll coast on the high of my new desk. My space…my very own work space…my precious! It will need paint, probably red to match the mantel and my son being a
fabulous painter will do the work. I have to come up with a design for the top part as that will be finished with clear varnish, a much harder surface to take the wear and tear I plan to
give it. Maybe I’ll sketch a mermaid and stain her. So many possibilities...something else to keep me awake tonight besides the gallon of coffee I drank today. Last night was brutal…I saw 5:13
am before I finally blacked out. I just can’t shut off my brain, especially when Sue got me all fired up on Saturday with design ideas. Usually I sleep in on Sunday, maybe even hang out in my jammies all the day long, but I had set the alarm for 8:00 am to get ready for a trip to
Halifax. I faced a pretty sorry looking reflection in the mirror this morning….thanks goodness for caffeine.
Sue and I drove to the city to check out “Christmas At The Forum’ and did a lot of walking around. We both went in with high hopes of scoring a few antique keepsakes but walked out empty handed. I supported the firemen selling their 2013 calendar, actually bought it from Mr. April himself. He seemed very nice but I’ll admit he wasn’t recognizable with his clothes
on..…funny that. Maybe I should have paid more attention to his face.... Anyway, I figure I’ll do a show and tell at the next hook-in. Armenia will think they’re all handsome and I’m sure there will be a few hoots from the crowd. I always thought it would be fun to do a hooker calendar, holding up our rugs to cover the parts, you know, for charity. Don’t worry we won’t be lathered in Vaseline and flexing like those firemen guys. The closest any of us will ever get to a six pack is standing in front of the beer cooler at the liquor store…..
The highlight of our day, second only to the fabulous lunch at Ela, was discovering a vendor selling old barn board picture frames and we both carried off an armload. Weathered into a lovely silver/grey patina with hits of actual lichen here and there, they titillated us with a multitude of possibilities. What an artsy way to showcase smaller sized rugs!
A trip to Costco put a Keurig machine in my trunk (yes, I paid for it) and enough coffee to supply the whole of Canada so please drop in for a brew. It’s all part of the master plan to design and work at my new desk and have people come by for a chat about their latest project and a coffee. This new work desk has a bit of a nook in the front for a couple of stools that I plan to purchase at Kent this week, when off to the city to deliver the new dye book to the printers. Yes folks, it’s finally ready to go!
