Cabinets, doors, and Soapboxes!
Not much blogging going on here in DixxeLand (my own little world) that doesn't mean nothing is happening I am always busy!
I brought some plants inside, Put in the new utility/laundry/sunroom I said to them "welcome home again" as the fern in the background is a grand baby of one I had in this house long ago..
and the tall spindly plant behind the chair... is my Avocado tree grown from a pit that sprouted on the compost pile a couple years ago. I reset it in the fall and it really has the potential to grow LARGE if I keep re-potting it. I can't plant it outside it will die in the cold here.
I've been putting the dishes back in the cabinets! I got rid of a lot but I still have a lot too!
I have to stand on a stool to reach the top shelf! The bathroom work has continued I rehung the door...and not just rehung but changed the way it opens used to be from right to left now its the opposite. Makes more sense to me...the floor is finished, all is done in the bathroom now except the vanity and sink! And of course $money is at the root of it! I have to spread out purchases to fit my budget...so that's the hold up.
I did get the art canvases hung and I'm happy with the look...is my spacing off a bit? Will have to tweak it...I do recommend Easy Canvas, they did a good job, the cost for this 3 pc set included shipping $124.99 Its 2) 18 x 24" and one 24 x 32" This is some more of my "pony art". I decided to only hang art that has a special meaning to me, created by me, or by someone I know like I said, "my own little world" These ponies are in deep shades of colors and not showing up well in these photos.
Moon watching continues to be a fun experience for me..I went out in the FREEZING air to snap these shots of last weeks lovely crescent...I tried out my new flashlight for some light painting on the fence.
Soapbox Warning: a mystery to me is how can a bunch of spoiled armed Rancher/Terrorists hold a National WLR hostage just so they can continue to get a hand out from the Federal Govt??? I have yet to see a single mother take over the Social Services Office when her food stamps or welfare is cut, I don't want to pay for that man's lifestyle, his product is not sustainable! In other areas factory work is the main way of making a living, if it closes then the employees have to find another line of work, why is he any different? He wants to sit at home while his cows fatten on our land then haul them to slaughter by the pound, not much effort to "his way of life" as he called it. He doesn't want to change his way of life so he want's the rest of us to change instead? Wish the world worked that way but, hello, it don't!
And rehab bird was healed and released sorry no photos...I didn't want to stress her more than necessary!
