Last Year, Fun Time in the Basement, Woodburning and Living Room Decor
This month last year,
the ladies gave me a
surprise bday lunch.
Been wonky around my
area the last few days.
Ice, ice and ice.
I was going into work Tuesday morning,
but I woke in the middle of the
night with tummy issues that lingered
for about 24 hours. I was
I took it easy all day Tuesday and
again on Wed.
As I type this, it is Thursday and
I am heading in, in just a bit.
Was waiting to be sure the roads
are clear and the crazies are already
So being sick I did not achieve
a lot. I did get dishes washed and
the kitchen clean, dusted the
living room, and dining room floors.
Last night (Wednesday) I washed
two loads of clothes, and locked
myself in the basement!
I have told you folks that if something
strange can happen, it will happen
I took a load of laundry
to the basement. Moved clothes from the
washer to the dryer, loaded the washer and
started that. Grabbed a couple of things
from the basement I wanted
to take up and grabbed the door
knob only to find it was locked.
I started to yell through the door
asking Lily and Misty which one locked
me out. haha
Be nice if there was a key down there,
and there used to be, but before moving
here, while I was cleaning out the place,
my older brother came over and picked
up a piece he was getting. He had a
garage door opener to get in the garage,
grabbed the key and I never saw it
again. That was also the only
one I knew of.
What to do?
I tried breaking in with a screw
driver to pop the lock.
Okay, I have a key to the back
door hid outside on the deck.
I raise the garage door, go out and up
in the yard, oops, the gate latch is
frozen. Pulling on that, I broke it loose.
Through the yard, up the frozen deck
steps, across the frozen deck to the
screen. Inside the screened section only
to see no key. Why? Cause a few months
ago I hid it somewhere else cause the place
it was, would be the first place someone
Did I mention I was barefoot?
Anyway, guess what?
I forgot where I put the key
and it was too cold to go looking
around for it.
Back to the garage to pop the hinges
off, and open the door from
that side. Not easy, that door
as been up for 56 yrs and the hinges
have never been off.
Step in and unlock the door.
Shut door and put hinges back on.
I only can guess that the basket
hit the lock as I was going out
I will apply a new knob with a lock
so I will have a key to hide in
Did I mention that not only did I
not have shoes, not even socks on,
I had no jacket, no phone, and
of course, no key!
45 mins to one hour playing
with the door in the basement.
Was I pissed? Nope, I was
laughing the whole time.
Either that or sat and cry.
However, my mind was working
away trying to decide what I
was going to make a bed out of!
I did achieve something later.
I am not done yet but I made
a longitude and latitude
woodburning piece to hang up.
I burned the numbers and the
hearts. I will paint or circuit
cut the word HOME.
I will then also, sand the sides
to give them a beveled like edge.
AND after that long drawn out
story, I will share the new
living room decor I have that sats
next to the tv.
Now is that not the cutest
living room decor?
Did you achieve anything special today?
What was the last time you locked yourself
out of the house?
Love your living room décor.
