Until recently, I had never watched Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.
I know, it's astonishing, isn't it?
I decided to devote a Saturday to this movie. Ok, not really, but since I just watched bits of it in between everything else I did that day, it sort of took up the whole day to watch it. It was interesting. I will be watching the sequels when they come up in my Netflix queue.
I watched the movie on Saturday. I received an email the very next day, saying that my Kindle had shipped. It arrived a few days later.
So, is it any wonder that I have walked around the last couple of weeks saying,
I promised K a picture of the pillow I made from the table napkins. I thought I'd just let you see my whole new bedroom ensemble.
The color is very tricky. It was called "silver" in the online description. I think of it more as a "grey". Ike's caregiver called it "green". No doubt, if I ask Doug, he'd say something else entirely. But it goes well with the black curtains I already had. I bought the bed skirt and large pillow shams in black, and then added my cute little black pillow as an accent. I like it. It's very tidy when I walk in my room. :) Here's a better view of the design of the quilting. You can click to make it bigger.
(You can really see the shimmer here, when I used the flash.)
Now, I know this picture isn't entirely self-explanatory, since the words wrap around the jar just a little too far, but this is my "Leather Couch Fund"!
If you've ever watched the Dave Ramsey dvds, you'll know he talks about buying a leather couch quite a bit. He uses it as a comic relief bit, but the truth is that I really want a leather couch!!!
Since we are doing Dave's Financial Peace University via the dvds, I know that I can't just run out and buy one. I must SAVE my money, pay off my debt, then SAVE my money again and pay cash for that sofa! So…I thought I might as well get a head start. I'm putting all my change in the little jar.
(You'll notice, I'm also back to clipping coupons…every little bit helps, right?!!)
…and simply because a couple people asked, here's a pic of my hair cut…nothing new, just long overdue! This is my "hey, it's still really early in the morning, and I am tired and I am not putting on make up just to take this picture for the blog" picture. This was the smallest size I could manage. It's clickable, but really…why would you?
I pray you have a wonderful weekend! And I am really tickled that you came here to read my blog today. Thank You! =)
