Can't believe I am up this late. I have a house full of testosterone and it must be throwing me totally off. School is out for Joey and his buddies Max and Derick are here and Austin, my former billet, is here from Wyoming visiting. I thought I was ready for an empty nest so I could spend more time on my art but, frankly, I just love having these guys around.

Jamie (my oldest) has asked for my help fund-raising for their team this year. Some of the boys have plenty of talent but their families are hurting financially. Good grief, like he HAD to ask?? When he was in middle school I paid for some of his friends to play hockey and baseball even though I had to put in OT to do so. At least I had a job that allowed it. So, of course I will help out the team. I have always felt that we ALL are a team- the HUMAN team. I guess that is why I like Obama so much.

Ok, time for some pics. Thought I should show you how the Michigan house turned out.

Ok, this is the dining room. It had these silly columns and a top thingy that just looked weird so my artist friend came up with this great idea to make the top thingy look like stone. He wanted to cover the columns with wood but I couldn't see it- stone held up by wood, so we went with stone look the entire way. It is so cool.

This is the fireplace. I need to get a better shot to show you the colour and texture of the paint. It is awesome! This painting by the marvelous Melody Johnson looked great in here with the old fireplace and beige paint. It looks SPECTACULAR with the new fireplace and paint!!

Ok, this is how bright I am. Yesterday I decided I was in the mood for frozen Margaritas (it's really hot an humid here) so I bought tequila and was SO SURE I had the mix at home. I pulled out this bucket. Guess what? It's NOT Margarita mix. I put friggin' Setacolor paint in it. So, we had regular Margaritas last night. This morning I went out into the garage to get the Belgium waffle maker out and guess what I found?? Yep- a bucket of Strawberry Margarita mix. I KNEW I had it!!!!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
