As you know from yesterday's post, Big left this morning for about 5 days (bad) to see her Mother who is in the hospital. Since I am alone and sad, I decided I needed some shopping therapy (good and bad). $178.00 later, I had new goodies for the main bathroom. (Some of the ugly is that old, nasty faucet!! It is going to be changed soon!)
I have fallen in love with Napoleonic Bees. I first saw them on Between Naps on the Back Porch. She blogged about some silverware with Napoleonic Bees on them and when I saw them, it was love at first site. The silverware is only $180.00 (bad). Why does it seem that everything I fall in love with is expensive?
One evening when Big got home, she found her favorite dinner on the table and me acting nice (this is a change from normal). I sweetly suggested she should get another job so I could afford all of the things I cannot live without. Can you believe she spoke to me in sign language? It is rare that she uses her limited repertoire of sign language, but please believe, I understand what she means!!
On with the post. Big's Mother's hospital tests are coming out negative and although the doctor will not see her until the morning, it seems she had a flu bug. Hey, better safe than sorry. Perhaps Big will be able to come home early (good). I know that Big will enjoy having some time to visit with her Mother. She was planning a trip later in the year, but this works out too.
I found a wonderful package in the mail today (good). A swap partner of mine sent these goodies to me. I love the Laura Ashley cup and saucer. The Waverly napkins look like the shower curtain I have in the main bathroom. I am thinking of making a pillow out of napkins! They would look wonderful in my den. What do you think?
I purchased some shoes and other goodies for The Baby (good for her). She has had her eye on these Carlos Santana shoes. I was able to purchase them for $10.00! (sorry, you can see the kitchen counters in the background - I couldn't find better lighting for the photo!)
Well, that about sums it up. I have enjoyed a glass (or two) of wine, had a slice of pizza and am feeling mellow. Soon I will head off to bed with my little puppy companion and try to get some sleep. Tomorrow I will finish organizing/cleaning my studio. My next big project will be the main bathroom. I will install a new faucet, paint the sink cabinet, and lay a new tile floor. Then and only then will I put my Napoleonic Bees in their new home!
I hope you all have a really great weekend! I will be lonely, but busy.
