whale watching

another week

Hard to believe it's been a whole week since I've added anything to this journal. You'd think I had a million things to do. This was not the case. As some of you know I have been keeping up with your postings and making an occasional comment. Thinking back over the time since last Sunday, it's been pretty mundane... the usual keeping up with daily stuff, grocery store, laundry, reading...

I did manage to get a few more framing pieces added to the basement renovation project. At this rate I should finish in about 10 years. :-) The piece of w/c paper I taped to a board last week still awaits inspiration... maybe this week?

Wendy went to a fund raising event for one of the local animal shelters. She came home with a couple of winnings, one of which is a new floor lamp. It's a modern design, round and heavy marble base with a curved chrome arm from which hangs a spherical metal globe (open for the bottom 1/4). Nice design but the problem now is, where in the hell will we place it? Oh well, it'll sort itself out sooner or later. At least she didn't bring home another cat... 2 is enough for us. :-)

The crape myrtle in the NE corner of our lot is blooming. Not prolific yet, but it's only a couple of years old. Maybe 4 years??

I know exactly the lamp you are talking about, and I love those! What a great score...

The best use I have seen for them is setting the base square in a corner, with seating placed in-front so that the lamp is over the sitting area. Then grab a great book, curl up, and ready away into the night... Bliss!

Yeah, that's probably the best use, Lola, but we already have a similar type lamp in the living room. Maybe we'll just trade 'em back and forth every few months. LOL

Haha, I thought for sure you were going to say that she brought home a couple cats or dogs!!!

That's how we got the two cats we have. Surprise! But two is enough. :-)

I'm not a big flower/gardening person, but I really love the color of the myrtles. If this is what they look like at 4, I wonder how they will look in another few years?

What are you reading now?

I have to apologize for my misnomer here, it has been pointed out to me that instead of crape myrtle, this is Rose of Sharon... by several people, so I believe them. :-)

I just finished Mary H Clark mystery novel, The Shadow of Your Smile.

The myrtles look great :)

A win sounds like fun - even if you're not sure where the lamp will live!

Wow, I've been using myrtle essence for so long, and I've never seen myrtle flowers before! They look beautiful!

I hope Wendy and you are going to figure out soon where to place the lamp-:)

Now I'm going to have to burst your bubble, Victoria. I have since found out the plant is not crape myrtle but is called Rose of Sharon. But it's still a pretty flower. :-)

The lamp is temporarily living in the basement. :-)
