This And That

Sunday morning we gave the dogs a bath. We just put them in our tub. John took care of the washing; I dried them with my hairdryer. We usually take them to the groomers but, with John's crazy work and Army Resv. schedule. We hadn't been able to make an appointment for them. I think they kinda' enjoyed it.

Look what I found at Aldi's the other day. We wanted lasagna for dinner but I didn't have any Mozzarella so we went in and of course ended up getting a few other things. Anyway, these Orchids were by the register. I've been wanting to get one for a while. I just hadn't wanted to spend the money on one. Ha! These Orchids were only $9.99! I HAD to get one! I kinda' want to go back and get another one. It's just that I've never had one so I'm not too sure on their care. (I Googled it) I pride myself with having inherited my Grand-mother's green thumb. Let's see how I do. I hope I can keep it alive and blooming for a while.

As you can probably see I've been moving her around trying to find the best light. Isn't she pretty?!

We or rather John has started working on putting the wainscoting back up in my studio. Now we can see why they used glue on the boards (I still think they used more than needed) these walls aren't perfectly square and so the boards don't fit up to the wall right. We are going to have to take one of the boards down and add some glue to it. The panel by the window is not tacked in yet. It's going to look nice it's just going to take a little more work than we thought. Isn't that how it always is when you start a project.

We are re-using some of the panels that were still in good shape. That's why there are marks where the old molding was on the top and bottom. Trying to be green and save some money too =)

One more thing, This is what I'm reading right now.

It took a few pages but I'm really liking it. I didn't know what to read after I finished reading The Help. Which was such a good book. My Sister-in-law and I are planning to go see the movie tomorrow. I've heard they did a good job with it. I'll come back and give you my review. So that's a little of what 's been going on here at the home front.
