a balanced breakfast
The kids are home this Friday, so I'm looking forward to a fun day with my two partners in crime. I think we definitely need to go on an adventure of some sort.
The weather cast predicts 81 today. Im actually writing this blog post from my front porch watching what looks like a storm rolling into town.
Im going to buy a bail of straw later and use it for bedding in our chicken coop, then I can actually move the chicks to their new home. I can't wait, they're going to be so excited!
I got a little surprise in the mail yesterday. Well okay, it wasn't really a surprise, more like something I ordered last Friday and tracked online every day since, naturally. It's a reproduction switch plate to fit our Victorian era home. I know, you probably think Im crazy because, who actually gets this worked up over a switch plate? I admittedly don't know anyone, but just look at this beauty!
It's my new favorite thing. And it's really heavy, made of cast brass. I have to order one at a time to justify them, because they're $15.00 a pop! About 15 times what you might spend on a standard switch plate, but these are the real deal. Thank you Antique Hardware!
Brett and I have a fun weekend of stenciling and tiling in store for us ... I can't wait to see some results!
Dinner will be Philly cheese steaks. Does anyone else plan dinner in advance?
Home grown beef.
Alright I think I have given you enough random thoughts for one day. Im off to make some stuff happen!
