Happy Monday, friends.
To start the week off, I thought I'd offer y'all some free advice.
There are five essential tools that everyone should keep in their home. You do not need a big fancy toolkit, but you should always have the following on hand:
Any and all household issues can be fixed with one or all of those items. I promise. Even large appliances can last up to 2 years past what probably should have been their demise if you know what you're doing with duct tape.
This weekend, I fixed the draft stopper on my front door, as it had partially fallen off. I also managed, during that time, to superglue the door shut and to superglue myself to the floor.
It is unwise to attempt home improvements when drunk.
The cat formerly known as Not-Ivy* and now named Eleven has gotten very affectionate.
|and last week she brought me a dead mouse|
I'm thinking about bringing her in if she gets a little more tame. Right now though she's still pretty wild--I can only touch her if I'm sitting down and only after she has established that I will remain sitting. We haven't seen Kiikiii-8 (the orange and white kitten) in about a month now. I'm praying someone took him in. He's much more tame than the other strays, and he's also super cute.
Some of my art work now hangs in the Sugar Shack in Warwick, NY. My family tells me I underpriced everything.... Hopefully I make some extra money. I've been arting tiny kingdoms and mushroom cottages like crazy.
In other news, as of yesterday--and much to my shock and disbelief--I have been elected to the church council. The council is made up of 6 people, each serving 3 year terms, and is basically the board of directors for anything and everything related to the church (services, Sunday school, the band, all the different ministries, activities, etc. etc.). I'm hoping this is my chance to completely overhaul (and possibly even take over) Youth Group.
I made a very large mistake this morning in opening the scratch and sniff sticker that came with my electric bill.
Now the office reeks of gas and my boss keeps thinking there's a gas leak.
Now listen to this important message from Left Lane Cruiser:
*She followed me around the whole time I was looking for Ivy outside and she looks just like Ivy, only not fat.
