I’m not sure I’m going to do so well in this northern climate come winter.
I took the day off today, after feeding my horses this morning, so I could plant flower beds. I love flower beds, and since Zach doesn’t care what I do (or plant) I get to do whatever I want! He even bought the flowers! Gotta love a man like that! On the subject of flowers, I got all the bulbs in, save for a few hyacinth (one of my favorites).
This was, however, not the pick of the days upon which to embark on this adventure. It has been raining/cold/windy/dreary and otherwise, a blah, blah fall day.
Did I mention that is OMFG cold out? Like makes me want to build a fire in the fireplace. Oh wait. I don’t have one…
Ok. So maybe it’s not cold like you people that are from this part of the country are used to. But cold for this Texas girl. The thermometer reads that it’s 48 outside. I just opened the door to grab something from outside, and I’ll be damned if it doesn’t even feel like WINTER out there. WTF?
I haven’t been able to feel my feet/toes for an hour now. I mean, A girl has to have immaculately groomed toenails to attend a wedding right? Well maybe not most of the women I’ve met from this part of the country, but the hell! I’m from Texas, and it’s certainly sac-religious down there. So sacrifices had to be made. I’m sure it’s been long enough and I could slip my frozen feet into a slipper or a sock, but I’m trying to make darn sure I don’t ruin a toenail! Then I’d have to start all over! And NO ONE wants that!
On a lighter note, I finally got to repaint this ugly lamp that’s been upstairs. I will post before and after photos, when I get a new lamp shade. One that is suitably pretty!
