Manic Monday, almost seeing the light from behind the boxes


lights, originally uploaded by tommiea1.



Manic Monday brought to us by the talented Fleur-de-Lisa.

Using no more than 10 nouns, and ONLY nouns, describe yourself. Sooner, photographer, neat freak, daughter, wife, mother, friend, creative (DANG, just re-read this and realized creative is not a noun!)...so, for your reading pleasure, I change it to: chef/cook sous chef....depends where I am on the line!

If you owned your own store, what would you sell?
something like Williams-Sonoma, where we could do cooking/baking classes, then sell the products we used.

If you were to name the most comforting thing for you to hold in your hands, what would it be?
Husband after a long day at work, kids after the bath, a glass of wine after a long day, .....okay that was more than one thing. Whatcha gonna do?

BTW, I had to post this pic of these lights. These lights used to be along the perimeter of our porch in TX. I haven't come across them yet, and we are about 90% done. Most of the boxes are unpacked. I am starting to place the pictures at the base of the wall where I want them hung. I actually did my Flylady House blessing today. I am starting to settle in nicely. I am so seeing the light at the end of the tunnel......now I just wish I could find these lights.
Happy Monday, y'all!

Williams-Sonoma .. perfect for you!
We haven't seen the new neighbors out for wine .. or any other outside yet. They are very nice, but they are not you!
It was 106 today here!!! So we aren't hanging out!

I played Manic Monday too.
I'd end up buying a lot in your store, and probably eating a lot too!
Your favorites photos in the previous post are lovely.
Have a great week.

brandt-is it sad that I am glad they aren't me! I am not loving it here....I haven't found y'all either. I am so trying not to judge....but dang, they don't seem to be much fun!

brandt-are they at least enjoying my play structure?

Desert Diva said...

Gee, I hope the lights turn up soon - I hate it when I can't find something. What is a Flylady House blessing?

You will find those lights sometime in 2009 where you least expect it!

Glad to hear you are near done. What a relief, eh?

Sweet.... I can't believe you'd ever lose ANYTHING as organized as you are. You'd be proud of me though Tommie I went through Madison's closet on Sunday - a world of difference! Now if only I could summon the gumption to attack my own closet!
