i think there were a couple of guys digging. i'm really not all set up again. the studio took a big hit, and i have yet to rearrange everything. but i'm making progress, if slowly. thanks.

i think a shirt would have been a good idea. they weren't the most professional. i have another guy that i will use for the next problem.

i used to bite my fingernails when i was younger. then i started wearing polish to discourage that. it worked. but now i pull at the skin around my nail. and bite a bit too. it's icky.
i love toe up socks. i've passed up many a pattern because they are cuff down.

i definitely buy art because i connect with it, not because it matches the sofa. i could see how the licensing stuff could be sort of a drag.
absolutely hate it!
it definitely put a damper on things. and it's not over. now my studio is a big mess with no where to put anything. we lost a lot of shelf and other storage. :(

most of the stuff can be replaced when i have a bit of money. the cleaning was such hard work. i'm most upset about all my journals getting wet. i'm trying to salvage them, but i don't know if i really can.

that's the hole the plumbers had to dig to get to the pipe that was broken. it was a lot of work for them.

omg!! that's the front yard. we were supposed to water the area for two hours a day so that the raised dirt would go down to level with the rest of the grass. but then the flood happened, and there is soap in the hose dispenser. it looks like we buried someone there!

amanda, with what did you cover your plants. we got a light frost last night, but had planned on planting this weekend. i'm worried about my seedlings. would sheets work?

oh amanda! that all looks so great! i'm especially impressed with the ribbon. when you buy dyed ribbon it costs so much! it looks like you had a great time. i'll have to convince my set of friends to have a dye day too. thanks for the inspiration!

it's really not that hard to grow veggies. we started with plants until this year. you just need a really sunny spot. and then water almost every day when it's really hot. give it a try! there's nothing better than fresh, fresh veggies.
