In love

I love alot of things in my life: hubby,


the gospel

I know that I'm totally blessed and I wouldn't change anything in my life.


Why aren't I British?

My family patiently and supportively and maybe a little enablingly puts up with my obsession.  They will go for huge lengths of time speaking in British accents with me.  (Read: in the car on the way to Home Depot.)  They let me watch all the DVR'd PBS Jane Austen movies I want while I'm sick.  And they always point out anything that comes from the UK. 
I'm not British.  I don't say "Oy!" or "Cheers!"  I say "Y'all" and "Fixin' to".  I didn't ever wear a uniform in school.  I don't know how to play Rugby or Cricket.  But , I can change all that!  (Well, not the uniform to school thing, cause there's no way I'm repeating junior high!  I mean, secondary school.)

I have an evil plan.  I wonderful, fantabulous evil plan.  I will live in England for a summer!  Muahahahahaha!  I will rent a cottage in the woods. 
 And we'll walk to the village to get food.  And we'll tootle the countryside in a Mini-Coop. 

I will basically be these two movies put together! 
Happy Katrina! 
I've always been really good at math.

There is a drawback.  No hubby.  He will be home in Texas earning the money that I'll be spending.  But, he'll cross the pond and we'll go on a grand tour to the Continent. 
Also, this will not be happening anytime soon.  I totalled up some figures and was shocked at the sum. 
But, it's a dream.  I am like Susan Boyle. 
I've dreamed a dream my life could be so different.  Or, at least, my summer.

Where Have I Been?

So where have I been?  In La la land. 
No, not Los Angeles.
Dream world.
Not Disneyworld.
My own mind.
I'm am addicted to Knock Off Wood.

I check it more than I check my own email. (For those of you who try to get ahold of me through email, this will not be much of an admitance.) I think about it while driving, before falling asleep, and Jenni and I talk about it everyday. I seriously want to chuck out all my furniture and build new. I'm mad at myself for being impatient and decorating my house before Ana started her blog.

Here's a list of my projects that I'm going to build so far:

And here's a list of things I want to build but have no earthly idea of where they would go:

So, you may not see me for a while.  I'll be in my workshop-aka. Jenni's Garage!

I rock!

Ok, truly, Ana from Knock Off Wood rocks,and I'm just basking in her glory.  This bench is what I made for my redhead's birthday.
It fit's perfectly between the edges of the bed!
I bought the paint for $1 on the "oops" table!
(And look!  I found the missing boot under the bed.)

Well, the picture above I made awhile ago.  7 years to be exact!

I can't wait to go a build some more.  I think I like it even better than sewing!
