Welcome to another Friday. Truly, the most beloved day of the week. Of course, your parents think all you weekdays are wonderful, talented, beautiful and smart. It’s just that Friday is a bit brighter, more beautiful, more talented and wonderfuller.
I finally went to have my “Eight Enormous Elephants Expertly Eating Easter Eggs” matted and framed. The way I wanted it would have been $200. What with the economy and my resources, that wasn’t happening. I finally got down to $65 with a single mat and basic frame. I wanted a double mat, but the other color was aubergine and it was linen, so I settled for a fabulous orange/red mat. I will show it to you as soon as I get it (about two weeks). I’m very happy with it. It will make me smile when I walk into my bathroom and that’s worth $65 and drywall taping and painting. I don’t know why I thought it would be less expensive, but I tend to live in “happyworld” and forget that all prices go up.
The other thing is I want to see it on the wall in the bathroom before I choose between sky blue and periwinkle. I’ll get a pic and put it on the blog for your input once again. I’m excited.
Other than that, there hasn’t been a whole heck of a lot happening, yet, I am quite busy. That is just fine by me. Not being busy makes me bored and I tend to get into trouble. Better to be busy.
Do you have big plans for the weekend? I do.That, my friends, is the drywall taping in the bathroom. That is just when the ugly gray mesh tape was put up before any joint compound was applied (don’t you love the elegance of the remainder of the tape roll sitting on the window ledge?). It has 3 coats of joint compound on it right now. I’m hoping to get one or two more coats to get the ugly gray covered. Then, it’s sanding and priming. The fun never ends here, folks.
For your Fridaygoingintoweekend soundtrack today, I give you…..Johnny Cash and the Muppets with “Ghost Riders in the Sky”. People. I don’t think I’ve every seen Johnny Cash smile this much and he had a pretty smile. Plus, how could anybody have this kind of chaos surrounding them and not get a kick out of it.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!
