Random Burst of Energy

I hadn't really felt like working on my sewing table these last couple of weeks. It's been on the hotter side of the thermometer and the fact I've been working in a garage doesn't help much. Today I was cleaning around the house and suddenly decided to work on sanding the legs. It's weird I get sudden bursts of energy like that sometimes. Not that I mind unless of course it's in the middle of the night. Then it's no fun because hubby needs to sleep. It makes for a restless night.
Anyways, back to woodworking. As I was sanding the legs, I noticed that they were numbered. They were all out of order. They're now back in order and a little bit steadier. I did a lot of sanding. I did a few different grades of grit from a rough to a finer finish. It's really something when you take a rough piece of wood and turn it into something smooth and beautiful. Here are all the legs smoothed and waiting to be sanded. i decided to stain the wood although it's not all solid wood. There are some parts of the table that are wood veneer. It's a good veneer  because it's not just a thin sheet glued to the front of particle board. It's about a 1/4" thick and nice hard wood too. I'm sure it'll look nice once it's stained.

This week started out with me wanting to do something different with my hair.  I've always wanted to do different things with my hair but have never really had the courage to do them. I've always been afraid that  I wouldn't be able to pull it off. Lately, I've been thinking that I'm going to try and be the person I was once I graduated from high school. I wasn't afraid of wearing what I wanted to; even if it didn't match or looked odd to other people. I miss being carefree and not worrying about what others think of me. So here it is: my new hair color. Don't mind the weird look on my face. I have a hard time smiling if I'm not laughing. I like the way it turned out. It's definitely different. The hubby liked it too. He actually picked out the color. He's always asking me to try blonde but I can't pull off the color. I look pale in a weird way. I guess sallow would be the best way to describe it. So I stick to colors that flatter me.

I don't know if y'all remember but several months ago I bought a couple of strawberry plants. I got one str5awberry from it and then the weather nearly killed it. Once the weather finally stopped being bat-shit crazy, they started to come back beautifully. Right now there are several little flowers waiting to turn into sweet tangy berries.

Isn't gorgeous? It's amazing how in a few days it went from a pale green to a beautiful red. I love to have hair that bright.

Here's a photo of Ridley-boy being all cute as he sleeps. Until next time, Ta!

    1. This happened to us this year. I went to buy some tomatoes and there weren't any left. I guess I could buy some organic tomatoes but it's late enough in the summer that I guess I'll wait until next summer.

  3. Awww, it really is amazing how similar Ridley and Stella look - I wonder if they're distant kitty cousins? :)

    Your hair looks fantastic! Bright shades suit the vibrancy of summertime especially well.
