You know I love Monday's eh?  It's the day I seem to get the most done.  Today will be no exception.

 ABOVE:  Stew got the pig weather vane up yesterday.  I do believe EVERYTHING is done now.  *smiles*

ABOVE:  The hallway.  Yep, Archer found the dog's pellets.  Had to happen.  I totally forgot to put them up.  I hope he didn't eat any!  (ikkky)

Today I have a list of things to do.
I ran out of pins yesterday!  I can't believe I did that!
Could be because I used a lot doing this:

ABOVE: MY DESIGN WALL is done, and has about 50% of my UFO's on it.
It's so neat being able to see what has to be finished.

So ... pins.  And more staples for my staple gun... cos I used most of the staples that came with the gun yesterday.

I'm taking Tallulah with me... so I can get a muzzle for her, one that fits.  I bought one yesterday, but it was totally useless for her short snout.

Because I will have Tallulah with me, I won't be lingering in town for long.  She will go mental if I leave her in the car for long.

Once I'm home, I will be painting the Hobbit Playhouse with a stain that will seal the wood and keep it from rotting.  
That will probably take me a while.


Hobbit House paint job on hold.  I can't reach the roof without a ladder, and I'm not too crash hot on a ladder.  *smiles*
I might do the places I can reach tomorrow.

Today I did something else.

ABOVE:  Can you see what I did???

Well there's some eagle eyed chicks out there... YES, I painted white lines on the driveway so I can see where the edge is when I'm backing out at night, or backing IN at night is more likely.  *smiles*

I'm sure the neighbours think I'm nuts.  Number sign AND white driveway lines.  Oh well... wonder what else I can do to stand out?  lol

"Trim the bushes"!!!  LOL   Nope, but I am going to shave me legs!  I've got Weight Watchers tonight, and maybe shaving the legs will take off a kilo??? I can live in hope.  *smiles*

After WW's, I've got Patchwork group.  Tonight it's at a member's home.  I am going to take some knitting!  Anything goes at the night meetings.

ABOVE:  A better view.

9.47 pm:  And I've had a lovely evening.  Weight Watchers was neat, getting to know some of the ladies, and really enjoying going.

Patchwork:  another nice group, lots of us just doing hand work or yakking.  Tonight, I was in the 'just yakking' group!  

Before I left for the Patchwork meeting, Lacy arrived home with her arm in a sling.  Some bugger attacked her with a crow bar!

    Have a lovely Monday and week! You're always on the go. Did you paint the edge of your driveway? The photos of the boys on the weekend are adorable :) Steve is just so handy and clever. I bet his blog is funny because he always has a way with words:

  2. Ohhh Archer... lol

    I love your Hobbit house!!

  3. You put a pot on the letter box 😊

  4. Did you trim your bushes? ;)

    1. *snort* oh hell I've got a dirty mind!!!

    2. Bahhhaaaaaha. I knew you'd like it.

  5. You painted white lines on drive way edge...??

  6. Yes, what Kelly said... white lines :)

  7. Yes the white lines on the driveway.

  8. OH - I think the whites lines are a great idea! Now, that I can see them.

    Oh my gosh I hope Lacy is ok, please let her know I'm thinking of her and hope she is ok.

  10. Everything you have done looks fantastic! Did you outline your driveway?

    1. Yes, just the first part. So I can see the edges in the dark. Cos I've driven off the side a couple of times... not fun!

  11. I am sorry to hear about Lacy - that must be frightening. Hope she recovers quickly!

  12. The house looks great. Have fun

  13. Oh my God a crow bar?? I hope she's ok!

    I confess I didn't guess it but makes sense to do that. I wondered if the hobbit house would be raw sealed or painted so that's forward thinking on your part.
