Inside my head......... a place you really don't want to be.  It's a jumbled up mess of plans & ideas.......kinda like pinterest on steroids!  No wonder I don't sleep at night!
Ever since we finished the patio last year it has bugged me that when I sit out there I could see the garbage cans.......I know....move them!  Not an option.  So I decided to make a screen to hide them.  It was such a great plan inside my head & I had it totally figured out even down to how I would manage to get a 4 x 8 sheet of lattice in my little car.  I did all the math & had all my figures on a little scrap of notebook paper that I kept losing!  The plan was to get someone at H*me Dep*t to cut out the pieces I needed.
WRONG!  Big sign above the saw saying "We do NOT cut lattice"  Me, being me, asked anyway but they told me that it's plastic so not good for the blade.

Okay...plan B....go to L*wes.  Checked it out & no sign so I figured it was a go!

 Popster caught wind of what I was up to & came with me.  I dragged my sheet of lattice over to the saw only to be told no!  See above reason.

Had I been alone this would have been my cue to say:  "Reallycomeonguysworkwithmenowhowdoyouexpectlittleolemetogetthishumongoussheetoflatticeinmylittlecar?" while pouting & other theatrics!

Apparently that only works with Popster!

 Dang!  Now I had to listen to the lecture all the way home as to why I come up with such crazy ideas that I can't possibly do alone & it went on all the time he was helping cut out the pieces.  I think secretly he was enjoying it but wasn't going to let me know that!

My plan also included making this to hide the gas meter....after all I has a big humongous sheet of lattice to use up.  The top isn't finished yet but it will be today.
I was told I am not allowed to add any more projects to the "list" for at least a month! 

I wonder if that includes the "list" that is inside my head?



  1. LOL...oh my gosh it looks great. HIre the man out for the labor and you for the ideas. Brilliant team.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val
