Whirlwind Wednesday

You guys give the best advice! I actually tried the broom for the wall, but ended up with cob webs stuck to the pointy texture. I'd forgotten that the Hunny had used the broom last to sweep the siding prior to removing it. And the broom didn't actually take off any of the points. So before reading the comments about sanding the wall, I used my putty knife to scrape downward. Love it! The sharp points are gone, meaning it doesn't hurt anymore when I reach around and turn on the light. Heh. That's a good thing. But the basic look is still there. I may still sand a little. One never knows. But you all are so clever! My next challenge is having the purple conversation with the Hunny.

I'm scooting out of the house very shortly and will be gone most of the day. Ugh. But the good news is I'll be sitting in an eighth grade classroom reading the book that I'm Being Held Hostage sent me, The Book Thief. I've read maybe five pages so far and am intrigued. Thank you, Hostage Girl! Why will I be in eighth grade this morning? I signed up to be a test monitor for standardized tests. Woohoo. Gets me out of the house, I get to read, away from the computer, for a bit. It's all good. I'll just miss you guys is all. :(

Speaking of missing, Fred and Bessie have been sighted again, over at Dlyn's. She's an incredible photographer. And Zobabe sent me another lolkow photo which she'd doctored. It's a shot I took several months ago, and it made me laugh so hard I about fell over. Tell me if you get it? And go vote for the photo!

Considering that we've been singing about the Farmer, the Dell, his wife and the cheese for months now, of course I get it.

I predict that we will see a photo of a purple wall within 7 days. Mark your calendar.

There should be a farmer in the Dell. Those cows are not dumb.

Enjoying the antics of the two bovine.

I get it! It took me a minute, though. I have such smart friends that I am always a few minutes behind. LOL
