Today is National Take a Wild Guess Day

I'm guessing that it's National Take a Wild Guess Day based on the fact it's the deadline for completing tax returns.  Ours have been done for a long time due to Left Brain's diligence.

Yesterday was the weight in at Weight Watchers and I'm down another 2.2 pounds.  Embarrassing as it is, it really helps to strip down naked on the scale.   

Well, today the dryer will be delivered and I have been busy washing walls, filling in nail holes from the cabinets Left Brain helped me remove and  scraping off the wallpaper border.  Whatever possessed me to put up panda bear wallpaper in the laundry room?  I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time. I managed to wrestle the old dryer out in the living room to allow some space 'cause I'm not the thin woman I hope to be just yet. While back there I removed the hickory nuts and mouse nest.  Yuck. Thankfully, they were not home and hopefully will not move back in.

After that job was done I changed clothes, fixed my hair as best I could and went off with The Divine Miss M to our garden club meeting.  This is a delightful group of nine women who know how to live...oh yeah, and garden of course.  Our leader is referred to as the Duchess instead of President and we all have a marvelous time eating and talking.  We left there at 10:30 PM and as soon as I was back I switched into my trashy clothes again and painted the area until midnight. Now I'm ready for the delivery of the new one.

The new look will feature cheerful yellow walls so doing laundry will be exciting and fun!  That and I had a surplus of yellow paint left over from the kitchen.  That should look nice with the white washer & dryer and black shelving to hold all my kitchen appliances that never get used because they were stored in the basement.  Stepford Wifes...look out!  Here I come!

Then it's off to the American Craft Council in the Cities with my friend and back on Saturday to continue the projects.  One of these days I need to get rolling again in the studio and finish things up.  So, there will be no new posts until Sunday as The Queen is on a road trip.  Hmmm.  I wonder if Queen trumps Duchess?

Long Live the Queen with yellow paint in her hair!

  1. Oh yes, the Queen definitely trumps the Duchess. My my, but you are definitely a busy bee. The laundry room should look really nice when you are finished. And you're right, it's more fun to do the laundry when the room is cheerfully decorated. Actually, the laundry is my favorite (the only favorite) part of housework.

    We just spent a few hours outside cleaning out my little gardens and planting new bulbs, etc. The timing is good because we have rain coming for tonight and tomorrow.

    Now I'm off to catch a nap. I have a long shift tonight and tomorrow morning. 17 1/2 hours. You have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.
