Flooring Fiasco

Ah new flooring under your feet, the nicest feeling. But wait...what is this?

Oh that little hick up in the road? Oh not to worry, the carpet will arrive in 10 days. Meanwhile you just enjoy walking on that padding with your bare feet. Whoops, sorry about those carpet nails. Dang!
Sorry we didn't order the right amount of carpet for your room. Not to worry, we are on that like ants on a pile of sugar. Like I said 10 days is not that long. Then you will enjoy that nice plush wonderful stuff they call carpet. Did I mention it will be installed in 10 days? Yup I did. That means 10 days of sleeping on an airbed. No dresser for my clothes and everything a total mess. Ugh! Oh but at least the bathroom flooring is done? Oh well that is another story. It is done. It was just another fiasco with replacing toilets, which required the trip of a plumber. As the Princess says, It's O.K. Nama. And, yes it was. It just took a little one nighter with no potty and having to make a trip to my brothers house to use his.  But all is well in that department now. The floor is fabulous and I do love it and I love having brand new shiny thrones too!
But I miss my own bed and my stuff. I hate living out of a box. I am not a good camper as you can see. I like order. Like my husband says, I am a schedule freak. When things are suppose to happen then they better darn well happen.(-: It's O.K. It will happen in 10 days right?
Or will it? Stay tuned...
The other thing I encountered this week was while cleaning my Mom's dresser mirror.
It was just a little fun surprise.
Can you read what it says?
I see booooooo with a g which was the first initial of my Mom's name. Didn't scare me Mom! Ha!
She was being funny. It was actually inside the mirror. No way to remove. I was looking at the mirror upside down and backwards if it had been hung on dresser right. I have a lot of ghostly adventures. I guess because I am a believer.
Oh and one more thing before I go...My Mom's house sold! In 4 days!! It was a cash offer. We are so happy to be done with the whole thing. Escrow closes on July 6th if all goes well.
We hardly had time to see the for sale sign up. We knew it would go fast because of where it is located. We never thought it would sell in 4 days though. We hadn't finished cleaning it out. So we had to hurry with all that. It has been a busy week. I may require a padded cell when it is all over.
O.K. this post is done! Wheww that was a lot of writing!
One last picture? Well o.k.
The Princess thought the empty room was hers to enjoy!(-:
Hope you have a great weekend!

The Weirdest Thing

I was painting and hanging a wallpaper border over the weekend. I had about two inches that had not been cut off yet and was sticking out from the wall. I was touching up paint and when I looked down this face appeared. Seriously I did not paint this. I couldn't even begin to paint it. It just appeared. So my question is what to think?

It doesn't scare me, but everyone who I have showed it to is freaked out. She looks unhappy to me but at the same time looks like she is wearing a veil? Like a wedding veil maybe? I guess you have to use your imagination. I have acquired some antiques from my Mom and my first thought is someone is lingering about the house. (-: I guess you have to believe in spirits. Which I do. Anyhow had to share. Feel free to post comments(-:

Enjoying The Garden

Blooms and Butterflies galore! Geez you can't walk around outside without a bunch of butterflies fluttering around by you. (-: There are several white butterflies that are camera shy. I keep trying to get a picture of them, but they just zoom on by.

My funny beach buddy. His hat fell down like that and has stayed through the wind/rain etc. I think he is trying to shade his face. (-:
The Princess is enjoying the water in the kiddie pool!

Happy June

Is it already June? Where did May go? Seriously, we are almost at the half year point.
I guess because we are so busy, time is flying by.
I didn't say fun did I?  O.K. we have fun too, but mostly we are just busy.
The garden is growing so fast. Yesterday we had a little rain and that helped a lot.
More clouds this morning, but not sure if going to rain or not.
I will take any coolness I can get. I know this month will heat up quickly.
On to the flowers you came to see.
First up, the first water lily of the season.
 Old daylily
Verbena Borealis
That's it for today. I will have to take more pictures. There is a lot blooming, but I haven't had time.
Have a great first day of June!
