If I Live That Long......

This is it.  It's all I am going to do today. 

Yesterday afternoon I started with a sore throat...This morning about 1:15 AM I awakened and never got back to sleep.  All we had in the house was a few very old cough drops.

I officially have a cold!  Icky!  Hack, cough, hack, cough. Icky again.

I went into town about 4:30AM to find something to help...So far, it isn't doing much...I am here....What more do you want?

I settled in and put a few shingles on the roof of the white greenhouse....somehow that doesn't sound right.  Maybe I should paint it green....
It still looked blockish.  I put some chair rail molding on the front to add interest.  A little better.

Then I pulled out a piece of paper, Spanish tile and cut that to size.   That helped.

At least it got Tessie out of the new cacti bowl.  She keeps trying to rescue the guy in there....I think he is beyond help.

I am not going to weave white wicker for it.  I am going to make some white needlepoint canvas furniture instead. 

The way I feel right now, I would probably throw real wicker across the room about every ten minutes.  And that would make me unhappy.  That would mean that I would have to go get it.

I dug around a bit and found this ceramic fountain.  It fits pretty well.  Maybe with a couple of chairs and a few plants, it would be passable....

If I make it through the cold, we shall see.  Right now I just feel like a nap....I have already been up eight hours.  I deserve a nap....

See you tomorrow....Not quite so early as this morning, I hope......Good Night...

Hi Casey. Yah! You are going to take my suggestion and make the white
"thingie" into a greenhouse.I like it so far. The floor is great. And I am looking forward to how you do
the needlepoint wicker.
Take care and get better real soon.

Sorry you have a cold. :-( Hopefully it is a mini one!
I have a feeling you are going to come back with even greater ideas for the greenhouse. Looking good already!

Oh poor Casey! You never seem to get sick! I sure hope it passes soon. I must say though you're way more productive than I am when I'm sick. I climb into bed and whine a lot ;)The greenhouse is off to a fabulous start!
