If there is anything LOVELY...

 
 
If there is anything virtuous,
 lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy,
 we seek after these things.
 


 
 
The other day this screamed at me. It said "FREE!!!"
really really loud! I brought her home and hummed and
hawed...and today because it was a million degrees
I decided to give her a new white coat.
 
I wonder who's home she stood in.
What did she see?
Did the thumb tack holes in her hold up Christmas garland?
Or a child's lovely art work?
Who lovingly wood grained her surfaces?
What year was she born?
What sat on her shelves?
Was she made by a man for his true love or
a carpenter working his trade to feeds his family?
 
I may never know, but I can say
I'm just glad I met her!!
 
Happy Summer!!
 
 
Psssst..Did you know hand sanitizer takes paint and kilz primer right off!!

One of my special needs friends
said "Heather did that scare the crack

I quickly replied "YES it scared the CRACK
right out of me!
 
I giggled and she wondered what was so funny!!
 
Crack...ha ha ha!!

History on fire!




Sunday night when I was taking a walk, I noticed a huge plum of smoke. I knew something big was on fire. Later I watched as my small towns historic mill burned.
I went to Jr. High across the street from this mill and never really thinking about it
or it's history. Upon its burning I did a little research! 




*The mill is reported to be one of the most haunted buildings in Utah.
*The mill was the largest in the west for many years.
*The mill was powered by steam in later years. Can you imagine
 how hot and scratchy it would be to work there?
*The woolen mill was the idea of Brigham Young was church owned.
*The mill was built not long after the saints arrived. Built in 1887.
*The mill  has burnt and been rebuilt 3 times! This is the mills 4th fire!
*Suits for three US presidents were made at the mill.
*The mill used a water wheel during it's first years of production.

A seat ment for a queen!!

 
 
Today I found this little lady.
She is the size of a piano stool.
She is cream w/ bottle green peaking through.
Someday I might just strip her down to
plain old metal. But today I like her just the way she is!!
 
 


 
Happy Summer!

George

The other day while sitting in a long drive through
 line I had this conversation w/ a woman
who lives at the group home where I work:
 
S: "Heather do you know George Washington?"
H: "I know of him but I don't know him."
S: "Does he have a wife?"
H: "Yeah Martha. She was a nice lady I read a book about her once."
S:"YOU DID?" Is she still alive?
H:"Nope."
S: After a very long pause and looking at a dollar bill for a few
minutes. "Heather did George Washington have a perm?"
H: "I don't know, what do you think?"
S:"I think he has pretty curly hair!"
 
Life is full of wonderful wonders!!

Teenie Tiny Tile!!

 
 
 
I love me some beautiful tile!
I hate to clean grout!
Many many moons ago
someone chose 1" square tile
for the floor of my shower!
It is gross 99.9% of the time.
I hate it! It never looks clean.
After hours of goggle-ing
the other day and lots of trial and error
the heavens parted and I found the answer!!
 
Sprinkle borax on the floor of a damp shower.
Let it sit.
Scrub it in and off an hour (or so later).
Ta da!! Clean floor!!
 
 

Book Stack and Stuff!!






*I love that yummy fruit and veggies abound!
*My sister has a red tomato in her garden. Jelly!
*My darling nephews are growing like weeds.
*I like being luke warm none of this hot weather stuff for me!
*I am trying to grow a pony tail. It is so hard!!
*Today I lovingly said to my nephew "I love you Fodie" I was
hoping he'd say it back however her turned to his little friend
and said "I love you Russell!"
 
Happy Summer!

Spring!!

 
Things:

*The twenty cent ranunculus that greet me each day in the
window sill...make me happy!
*Hearing the rain while laying in bed is delish.
*Yesterday I took my nephew to the pet store.
He ask at every cage if he could "get in".
We bought a fish.
*I took the same nephew to DI. I told him he could pick a toy
any toy. He chose a vacuum. While we drove home I heard him
quietly talking to him self "Fodie has a vacuum and mommy
has a vacuum".
*I regret a beautiful rug left at the thrift store.
*I saw a man begging on a corner chatting on his smart
phone. It made me roll my eyes.
*Perma headaches are lame!
*My sisters neighbor yelled out "Hello Crystal Lee"
while waving and smiling at me. I yelled a
"Hey" back!
 
Happy Spring!!

Junk Mail Wreath!

 
The front door at work was looking a little (a lot)
sad! It needed some happiness.
It needed some FREE happiness!
Then came then mail! Mostly junk!
I quickly cut it up and made this lovely.
The junk mail was pre-cycled and
looks DARLING!!
 
(lots of little fans stapled
to a cereal box donut!)
 
Happy Spring!!
