My sunflower garden! It's a bloom'n. I snuck out one evening last week to capture the light on the petals while hubby did the honors of bath time. Never fear, karma bit me in the hind quarters by way of large, white, preternaturally freaky spider perched on one of the flowers. Should say crouching on one of the flowers, posed for imminent attack. It eyed me and my camera lens as if ready to launch itself on a kamikaze mission. I backed away slowly and thought I had averted certain spider death when I felt a light tickle on my shoulder -- not the same spider but surely a disgruntled relative. Knocked that sucker to the ground and stomped him good. Apparently hubby had finished baths and watch my little spider dance/shriek routine from the kitchen window.
Putting aside my snarky attitude for a bit, I have made progress on renovating the wooden doll house that I intend to take to word. Sanded yesterday and today will cover some of the walls with a sweet rosebud print contact paper. I also plan to add a few decorative touches and sand the few pieces of furniture that I have at this point. Still on the hunt for used doll house furniture on craigslist. I'll be sure to post pics of this little feat in "home improvement" when it is done!
Despite my anticipation of doom and much sweating, the morning is beautiful and I think I'll drag my tots out to enjoy it while we can!
