Oh my... a week already gone by!! ANOTHER Thoroughly Thrilled Thursday!

Oh my... a week already gone by!! How did that happen??
I am not sure how the time got away from me??
I hope everyone is having a great week!! I am sorry I
haven't been able to get back here to blog more.
I have missed everyone terribly. But I figured...
with the pain pills... I wasn't in very good shape to
be trying to talk to anyone! lol.
So for today... grab you a cup of your favorite coffee,
or soda, or juice... find a comfy seat... and lets visit!!

I am having another Thoroughly Thrilled Thursday...
this Thursday, I am healing from the fall...
(earache still here... but getting better!!)
my wrist is doing ok... still tender, but also better,
and elbow is not hurting, just to get the muscle
there to not hurt when I lift something.
O well, I will live!! :D

I have been looking at this horrid thing!!
(and to say the least... not liking it!! Not in
the winter time anyway) ;-)

So I decided to see what I could do to not
look at it! :D and this is what I came up

I went to the lumber yard...
had them make me a frame for my
frame... put hangers on it...

hung it from the wall with two screws...
put two screws on the front of it for the picture...

hung it around the AC...
then I painted a picture on a piece of wood...
cut to fit the frame....
hung the frame on the box....
to cover the AC...
and this is what I got....

I painted the picture to kinda resemble
our farm... some diffs though...
house was what it looked like when we moved
in... (hubby tore off the roof... and upstairs...
made one roof all going the same way...)
painted a light yellow...
the barn... well it is what I wish I had!!
the one we had... well... it was in such bad
shape... it was falling in... now finally on the
ground... (Hoping hubby will let me go tear
the old barn apart now that it on the ground)
The old tractor well... it is the one he runs now!!
Sort of seen better days... but you can't complain...
it gets the job done!! The fences here don't look like
that but what the hey... (it is my imagination huh??)

LOLOL!! I am soooooo happy how it turned out...
I started it last night at 6 pm. and finished it early
this morning... 1 am. lol. Hubby woke up in the
middle of the night to ask me if... I told someone
I would have it done tomorrow?? My reply was:
"yes... me!!" He thought I had lost my marbles!
When he woke up this morning to see it finished,
he came in a gave me a goodbye kiss...(I was
still sleeping... go figure... huh?) and said he
loved it!! It will look nice to cover the old beast!

So there you have all the I was able to accomplish
this last week... besides the dishes... and some
cooking. I hope to be all mended by next week!
I am wanting to get back to work on my basement!

And we are going to a party for his work on Saturday...
and staying over night in Topeka... so we can go
see the RV show on Sunday!! I know which one I want...
but you know I have champagne taste on a wino's
budget too! So, we are still just looking...
but what the heck... I get to spend some time
with my loving hubby... and leave home too!!
What more can a girl ask for?? I get to dance
the night away on Saturday! So I am perfectly HAPPY!!

Hey all of you wonderful ladies out there that
sell what you make... my Mom is making
afghans and would like to sell some...
one... any idea how much to charge for them??
two... know anyone that wants one???
I told her I would ask.
Thanks to everyone!! :D

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away.
A sense of humor can help you tolerate the unpleasant,
cope with the unexpected & smile through the day.
There is one happiness in life to love & be loved!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed day!!

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!

Hi Debi,
Love the bench and what you did with the A/C, so clever! I wish it was that easy for us... we have the portables on wheels, they've been rolled out to the garage until the 100 degree heat hits. Cute, cute blog ;)

Sue said...

You did a great job covering the a/c...can't believe you finished that in one night!! I'm glad you want to enter the "letter" game. I'm giving you the letter "S". Let's see what you come up with.

Brilliant idea, and it looks beautiful! You are so artistic and creative. I totally understand staying up all night. When I decide to do something, I don't want to stop until it's done. laurie
