An Etsymini featuring AutumnDaisy

AutumnDaisy puts me in her treasuries constantly. I just love her for it. She is a wonderful artist, check out her beautiful work! [scroll down for how I got this idea]



I got the idea for this [and instructions] from this thread in the Etsy forums

Thanks, GoddessJoy and LooseWireStudio!

home depot

we keep hiring home depot to install things, because it's inexpensive and easy, and they keep screwing everything up in one way or another. when they delivered our refrigerator, the guys scratched up all our wood trim, not by accident, but out of stubborn stupidity. then there was a big nightmare about an overcharge on our carpet. i could swear there was something else, too.

now, we got a new garage door and opener. the weather stripping "must've fallen off the truck on the freeway", and "oops, we installed a 7 foot opener on your 8 foot door...but it's not our fault, it's the guy who wrote up the order. but we didn't notice that we were putting the wrong size on your house til we were all done."

we've been waiting 2 months for them to come back and fix it. i've called many times and finally got a manager to walk through each step of making the appointment, since i refused to wait for them to call back. they're supposed to be here between 3 and 6pm today. it's 5:23 right now. i'll come give an update later...

update: he showed up at 6:05 to tell me that his "tool" broke and he can come back tomorrow. hey, at least he didn't blow me off altogether. i coulda been running errands, though. oh well, at least now my husband has to deal with it tomorrow cause i'll be at market, lol.

i hate iceberg lettuce

seriously. it is disgusting. it tastes terrible.

okay, so i don't mind it so much as a cold salad. but i cannot understand how anyone can bear to eat it warm. like, sprinkled all over mexican food [inexplicable]...or in wonton soup [yes, as unbelievable as it seems, i have been served this at more than one restaurant]...on a hot hamburger...let alone how utterly horrifying it is when you're on the leftover half of the chimichanga, the next day, and it's all limp and brown. eww. down with iceberg, i say.

i got a treasury!!!

please come visit and check out the amazing artists within!

wild woman up close pendant necklace on Etsy

here's my avatar, up close. :) click if you want her to come live with you. she'll hitch a ride on the mailtruck tomorrow morning and be on her way. ;)

10 reasons why it's good that it's raining for a week in August?

1. i don't have to water the plants?
2. in case i was missing winter?
3. i don't have to think up any other excuses for why i'm depressed?
4. umm...baby likes to wear his rain boots?
5. my tarps were lonely and bored?
6. oh hell, i can't think of any more.

well, i did go to market

and i did set up

and it was slow

the weather

says 100% chance of light rain, followed by heavy rain, followed by rain, then a little rain and thunder. finding it hard to motivate myself to get in the shower and go to market...yuck. yesterday i was crammed in a tiny spot, and i was looking so forward to spreading out in my big luxurious annual Sunday spot and really talking up my new greeting cards and magnets. now i'll have to huddle behind a tarp. unless the storm wants to just mosey a bit south? wouldn't that be nice?
