I believe we are in the last 3 days of our last hot weather before cool sets in for good, and cold is just a stroll down the block. These next three days will seem like an eternity to me. I have forgotten how to dress for warm weather, my mind tries to remember what I've been wearing for the past 5 months, but it comes up with nothing. My thoughts are rooted in leggings, boots, and long sleeves. I can think of nothing else in my closet that is less worthy.
There are a few projects that Husband has done that I haven't posted. There is just one of mind. BUT! With that said, I am getting my act together. So, let me begin with the beginning...(Quiet Man reference, seriously watch it)...I've been getting up before the sunrise, and getting in some fun exercise before those golden beams hit our blades of brown grass. I've lost 2 lbs, and its only been a week. Our house has stayed pretty clean, the bed has been made everyday, and laundry isn't piling up. God has helped me do this, I know I can not do it on my own...I've got the past to prove it.
I will show you my one DIY that I've accomplished...there is still one that has been on the books for too long, maybe this weekend (maybe not)...someday it will get done. Husband got me a journal that says "Things I Was Supposed to do Yesterday That I Will Do Tomorrow"...how fitting of me. I laughed and smiled when he showed it to me. I have yet to use it...surprise surprise.
Anyway! My amazing brother in law and sister in law got me this amazing vintage owl cookie jar for Christmas last year. I LOVED it! It was perfect, classy, artistic but not too modern, with a glaze of mostly white with wisps of tan. I put my coffee beans in it, so I used it everyday. Of course, with using something breakable everyday it ups your chances of actually breaking it...which happened. My elbow hit the owl head lid and it went flying to the floor. I stood there in shock, Husband saw the whole thing. I tried to salvage it, but I couldn't. It was a sad day in my household. The good news is that I had another Owl Cookie Jar that Husband had got for me at an antique place our first year of marriage. It is a very cute owl, its holding a book, and has some round Harry Potter-looking glasses on. Its olive green, orange, yellow, and brown. I'm guessing it was made in the 70s. I have a good friend who loves this design era, but I'm not a huge fan. I love a lot of light, and pale colors, with some pops of bright. So this Owl needed to be upgraded to my design. So...I spray painted it white. And it came out better than I imagined!
