So we are here for about 5 days and will be going to the Arts and Crafts Festival today in Fairhope, a nice upscale little community just outside Mobile.
We're off to see the sights!!

Well, the best laid plans of mice and men....as the saying goes. I didn't get accomplished all of what I set out to do this week end but I did get the laundry part of the room completely finished. It is the hardest part of the room because of all the cuts for the door, cabinet, outlets, etc. What is left is a straight shot without anything to paper around.
I am working all week this week as my boss will be off to visit with her family. We changed to daylight savings this week and that will give me an extra hour of light but don't know if I will have any energy left at the end of the day to work on the paper. I'm disappointed that I didn't get the other wall done as it is the wall with all the storage shelves and I am anxious to get some organizing and decluttering done in the garage. Well, I guess I'll just have to try to be patient and wait until I have more time next week end. I have a handy man coming on Saturday to help me dig holes for my roses that have been in their original pots for a year now. Unfortunately I hurt by back many years ago and have a difficult time digging especially if there are a lot of holes I will be relieved though to get them in the ground, at last.
Last Monday I had a huge mesquite tree in my front yard cut down. It was quite a site to watch them take it down. It took about 5 hours for 2 of them to get it done. The tree had 2 trunks and half of it towered over my house. That is the part that took so long as they had to take it down branch by branch. Unfortunately the tree was on it's way out and I wanted down before part of it landed on my roof. Not a good thing!!
The weather here has gotten quite warm and all the trees are beginning to leaf out so Spring is definitely on its way. Love to see all the beautiful flowers and warm breezes... Happy Spring!

Remember several weeks ago when Jen and I went shopping for new tennies and we went to Marshall's to check out what goodies they had? One of the things I bought that day was an oval mirror. It was black with brown antiquing. Black is not my favorite so I decided to paint it.
