Doodlings No.3

Do you ever have one of those days?

Those "I can't really seem to get motivated to do anything today..." days?

Probably not.  Probably only really responsible and energy-filled people read my blog.  The kind of people that hang out with Martha Stewart and play the Cello in their spare time.

But today is one of those days for me.  I don't know why, since it's my "blogging day" and that usually gets me pretty pumped full o' lead and ready to go.  But not today.

Today I have looked up a plant that I would like to buy.  I saw it in Country Living yesterday, it's called a "Paddle Plant" and I want one.  Or two.
And I am dreaming of a glass shelf or two for my kitchen window, like these ones, to put my new Paddle Plants on (actually I've had this page from BHG cut out for over a year now).
But then I start thinking "Would that block my view...?" and I get scared.
Here's the bank of kitchen windows before we moved in.  I would put the shelves (1 or 2) in the big center one.  What do you think?  
I have also been working on a project that I started last Saturday.  I was hoping to have it done to share with all of you today, but alas the window casings needed primed and my dog needed groomed this week.  So it'll be on the docket for next week--it's a good one, too :)

Speaking of my dog.

My Dad told me that my Aunt (my dear, sweet Aunt from Crate Storage Bench: Tufted Upholstery) ...
...told him that she hadn't read anything about Jip on my blog lately.
And she wanted to make sure he was okay.
He's fine.  Except that he always wants to be outside and whines and complains when I won't let him out.
He apparently didn't get the memo that he's supposed to be a white girly-dog, carried around in handbags and given bows to wear.
My dog eats drywall chips and bugs for fun.
Maybe that's why his breath is so toxic.

So for your viewing pleasure, or to satisfy anyone working for the Humane Society who might check up on my blog periodically, or even if PETA might gander a visit on over here, (you should come see my freezer full of meat), here are some recent pictures of our little monster!
And here's where I made him dance for a treat.
He hates it when I do that to him.
He's happy as can be right now, curled up beside me on the couch sleeping.
Ahhh, what a life.
Jip really is sweet and very loyal.  We love him to death and are very happy we have him.

Besides, who can resist that face?
And lastly, though most importantly, our little one is doing very well!
(the baby, not Jip...track with me here...).
Everything is progressing very normally.  We had our 20 week ultrasound last week and got to see some ninja kicks and punches.  I have a little baby bump finally...though I don't have any pictures right now to show you because they're in Joe's cyberspace files somewhere.
Soon, I will have to post some soon.

And I bought a changing table!  That will be revealed in time.  Rest assured there are many projects in the works, they're just not done yet.  Much exciting stuff between now and January!

Have a great weekend everyone.  This Sunday is Joe's birthday, so we're excited to go out on a date and spend some good time together.  Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

Oh, and let me know what you think I should do with my kitchen window!

  1. I am glad my 2 grandkids are doing well. I think you should do the glass shelf. I don't think it will hinder your view as much as you might think.


I love to read your comments and questions!
