Maybe I should say a LOT of sugar.... When I got home yesterday afternoon, I found Tessie wandering around on the keyboard with what was left of a soft oatmeal cookie in her arms....I have to assume that she didn't invite Zar to join her. He was nowhere to be seen. She looked slightly dazed and confused. Sugar highs can be rough.
She managed to get as far as SOAR recipe source http://www.recipesource.com/ I use a lot of recipes from here and have it bookmarked. She evidently got as far as the cookie section... If you ever run out of ideas for things to cook or can't find a recipe, this is the place to look. People upload their favorite recipes to this site. I have yet to find a recipe that didn't turn out well. It is a huge site and pretty amazing!
Anyway, while she was overdosing, I went to the Wednesday Witches meeting and I got half a roof shingled. One by One!
As tiny as this house is, it takes lots of shingles, since they are about 1/8" by 1/4". I resisted counting as I went. If I had, I would probably be doing something else, more sensible, by now.
I had to go out for white paint this morning and when I got back, I started a little side garden on the more modern house.
I painted a sky with two shades of blue and the white that I bought. Then I dabbed two shades of green on top of that, to look like trees in the background.
Then I took some Brodinax brick paper and did a wall for the garden and up the side of the house. Then I put in a floor with egg carton. I have only put a base coat on that so far.
I stopped and put a piece of dried Nandina in the corner and propped it up with a piece of needlepoint canvas wicker. I was thinking that I shared these pieces with you once before, but I can't find the entry. If anybody is interested in them, I will put in the patterns and directions tomorrow. Anybody interested? Or does anybody remember seeing the patterns on the blog anywhere? Some of these days I am going to get organized.....Honest!
See you tomorrow...."Tessie! Drop that cookie NOW!!!
