Bob Slept Here!

I just wanted to let y'all know that I am still alive and kicking, since I have not blogged much lately.

Knock-on-wood Tony and I are doing great and so are our four-leggers.

Tony and I have been working a lot of hours and I've been writing even more hours and between line—dancing and running back and forth to Kerrville is why we have been so busy.

Anyway, yesterday our very dear friends Hans & Marita came over after we got off work and we had a wonderful time visiting with them. And even though my callouses on my fingers have gone away, because I have not been playing my guitar much—Hans and I played guitars together while he and Marita sang. (I did not sing, because I am tone deaf and smarter than that.) And the only thing bad about their visit is my finger tips are still sore. But it was worth it.

Oh, in my spare time I've also been working on my cute writing cabin and it is coming along great.

Last week our big window's blinds broke that is next to our front door and because of that one side hung lower than the other and it drove me crazy all night long. So, the following day we went to the Home Depot and replaced and rehung the new blinds. (Actually, Tony rehung the blinds.)

Anyway, I hated the thought of throwing out the broken blinds, so I decided to repurpose the old blinds or better said—I am repurposing the slats.

After unstringing the slats, I began painting them red and I also painted a few of them with black and white squares, because I plan to attach them to the inside door of my cabin. Here is a picture of the inside of the door and a picture of the slats before I began painting them on the kitchen island.

Painting the slats turned out to be an all day project for me and I still have not had the time to attach them to the door. But it will happen sooner than later.

Like I said earlier I've been busy. In fact, today Tony helped me put our new (actually used, but free) rug inside my cabin and I love how it looks. It makes the cabin feel even cozier.

I am going to show you a picture of the rug, even though we still have not insulated the ceiling and above the metal sheets. So the cabin looks a mess right now, because we still have tools inside along with a small tv and the painted slats. 

So please remember this is just a sneak preview of my tiny writing cabin and when I/we finally finish it—it will be more than awesome. Here is the picture of the rug with the bed made and covered in one of my favorite Pendleton Camp blankets. (The same blanket that Bob used to sleep on in my old, pink cabin.)

And that is about it for now, because it is RAINING!!!

Y'all have a great evening and keep on laughing!
