Tool Time

My inner time clock is all messed up.  Night Owl me is secretly a little put out about it, but the Early Bird in my house is ecstatic.

Since I've been home from France, I automatically wake up at 5:00 a.m.   I hop right out of bed without lying there for 30 minutes thinking about it.  Elphie and I have been taking early, early walks; instead of late, late walks.  I might even get a tan on this new schedule -- if I stay out long enough.

Do you know that I've been so crazy busy with I don't even know what, that I haven't even been to the beach yet!  That is just sad.  Sad, sad sad.

After my walk, I showered, did laundry and cleaned the house.  All before 9:30.  That rarely happens in my life -- getting so much done before 9:30 a.m.  I think I need to go to France once a year just so I can stay on this schedule.

At 10:00 a.m., I went to Home Depo with an idea in my head.  I spent about two hours wandering around trying to figure out how I was going to make it happen.    I bought drill bits, PVC pipe, eye screws, cement, drop cloths, cotton cord, empty paint cans.  Whew, I was sweating when I got in the car.

I came home and dumped it all in the back yard.  I've been cutting and drilling, and Mod Podging, and mixing cement all afternoon.   I've enlisted Eden who's been sanding all day to pay of the debt he accrued  shopping in Tolousse.

I spilled Mod Podge on my pants, and cement on my new Espadrilles.  What was I thinking!

I had to go inside and change into something more suitable for construction projects.

I think I'll be outside until it get's dark.   This is more involved that I thought it would be.

I think I'm going to take a short break and head over to the Asian market to see if I can find a Chinese newspaper.

Kind of random huh?

I'll show you what was inside my little head in a few days. (But only if it turns out cool.)

You're killing me. I need to know what it is. :)

I have the opposite problem! I can't get to sleep until 2 am, and sleep in until 9! School will break me of that really soon! Can't wait to see what you've been creating!
