1. Whine about heat and humidity. Check.
2. Post Friday Fragments and Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun. Check. Check.
I know a lot of people who participate in Pondering with a Purpose participate in the Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun meme, too. If you're here and you're a Ponderer, please check out my post from yesterday. I don't know what's going on, but when I go to Brenda's site it's like the whole thing has been high-lighted and it's "dead." I can't post my link or comment or click on anything. I tried sending her a tweet, but didn't hear back. I'm not having trouble anywhere else so I don't know what's up. Is it just me or is everyone having the same problem?
I cleaned out my office/library/craft room yesterday. There's still not much room in here. It used to be Megan's room before her brother went off to school and she moved across the hall to his slightly larger room. It was a "jungle" room when she dwelled with its walls. I've removed the jungle elements, but the walls remain "Lion's Mane Gold" with a slightly dark shade rag-rolled over top, giving it a kind of aged, parchmenty look.
The carpet is kind of a dusty green so I found some old-time bark cloth fabric in a 1940's style floral print that has the golds and greens and a dash of flamingo pink. Mom made me curtains and pillow shams and I took the sliding doors off the closet and hung curtains made of the same material over the opening.
One wall is solid bookshelves. I put squares of cork on the walls in a couple of places to pin up photos and stuff (like all my Toby concert tickets), and a lot of framed photos, all in black frames fill the rest of the walls. This is where you'll find my autographed pictures of Toby, the Blue Angels, and various Steelers. There's a comfy platform rocking chair, a big frame to work latch-hook projects on, a couple of side chairs, an exercise bike, a Malibu pilates chair, a desk my dad had custom made for me when I was 7, and a card table to wrap presents and work on. There's also a whole lotta shredded paper on the floor thanks to the puppy. I just cleaned it up yesterday, but she's been busy this morning. Even cleaned up, it's kind of crowded in here.
The puppy is making progress.
No, she's still pooping in the house every chance she gets. Thanks for asking.
But she learned to sit on command! She isn't perfect at it yet, but she does pretty good.
And the pooping thing? I think she sort of gets it, because when she does go in the house it's either hidden (like she knows it's bad) or right in front of the door (like she knows she should go out).
Exciting news this morning. Well, it's exciting to me....probably not so much for you. I had a message on Facebook this morning from the woman I was going to meet in Cleveland for the Toby Keith concert. She is seeing him in Cincinnati and has 2 Platinum VIP tickets....the friend that was going to go backed out. Another friend might go. If she can't, the ticket is mine if I want it.....okay, if I want it and can afford it and if Tim's willing to drive to Cincinnati with me. That would make my summer!
