Not exactly what I bargained for.

Cluttery Mess
Small Storage Cabinet

As advertised in ad from a newspaper.
Many pieces with instructions in Engrish.

All you need is a Phillips.
I recommend a power screwdriver, this little one is very handy.

I have 14" wide available space.
10" wide means 10" deep? (crap!)

It didn't fit! Had to put hamper there instead.Luckily the hair dryer and brush fit in the drawer.
Here it is nearly 2 hours later.


Martha Stewart close your eyes.
It does hide a lot.

Roses are red, roses are blue ?










Yesterday was a thoughtful exchange of flowers, valentines and candy. The bouquet above may look like one large bouquet but it's really a collection of vases clustered together. Look at that blue rose from Tom! And the peach one from Theresa. The white rose is from my sweetheart and all the rest of the beautiful flowers are from Nora. (Thank-you)

And...
Xavier 's other front tooth fell out!

bet you didn't know I was a poet.....


T.C.B.
I stand at my closed window in quiet retreat,
(taking care of business)
Thankful for hot running water.
(Dirty glasses, forks and spoons)
Waiting patiently for the warm days and wild flowers,
(a stack of assorted dirty plates)
So I can throw open my window again.
(what the heLL was in this bowl?)
But take your sweet time February.
(that's what I get for hiding it in the fridge.)
I love you because you are today.
(water swirls down the drain glug, glug.)
And that is what I live for.
(pat my hands dry....sigh )

Fastest Growing Sport in Norway Today

My friend Dave sent me an awesome video today I want to share with you. Have you ever dreamed of being able to fly? I have, many times. When I was a little girl, I would have dreams of being swooped up by the wind while I was running to catch my bus. I would glide through the air like a bird with my cardigan sweater billowing behind me. Those dreams will probably be reoccurring now that I've seen this death defying video clip. Only this time, I'll be wearing my wingsuit and I won't be needing the bus.
In Disney's movie Toy Story, Sheriff Woody tells Buzz Lightyear..."That's not flying, that's falling with style!" Woody was right about Buzz...but Aye Yie Yie This is something else. THIS IS WILD!
I situated the video down this page by the juke box control to make it easier for you to mute the blog song playing but still be able to hear the video, if you want. Watch the Fastest Growing Sport in Norway Today. (awesome video Ali thank-you) (and thank-you too Dave)

Living With A Crime Fighter...








You can take Xavier out of the Spider Man costume,
but you can't take the Spider Man costume out of Xavier.
