My plans didn't work out. I know you are thinking, "Wow, big surprise! Her plans NEVER work out.".
Ah, but it wound up being so much better. I got to find stuff for the artistic director for a film! You see, my son-in-law is the artistic director and he lives in Toronto. On short notice, he had to stage three full sets. My daughter was at work and Baby had a reaction to a drug and couldn't go to daycare. Daddy has to mind her. The film is being shot about a mile from my home and my daughter called and asked if I could help SIL find a few things in my area. He needed crappy stuff for a young guy's apartment. I'M THE QUEEN OF FINDING CRAPPY STUFF!
Within an hour, I'm sending SIL pics like this. ~
Then, he calls and needs ten stools for a bar scene and a lacrosse stick. ~
Child's play for me! I haven't even broken a sweat and I have it all. I've raided a neighbour's man pit in his garage, my brother and SIL's thrift store and two of my neighbour's kitchen islands for stools. Get this, I haven't even left this tiny village!
I have the greatest neighbours in the world! They'd never bat an eye if you asked them to loan you their car, their lawn mower or their first born male. Well, a least they were fine with loaning the first born male's lacrosse stick.
I have this job done in two hours but I can't get into painting or canning while text messages are coming in for things like dartboards and braided sweet grass. Seemed like I could take it easy this weekend. That is, until my sister pulled out her hosta bed and showed up with a wheel barrow load for me!
Blackberry in hand, I started digging and made a cute, little garden where it was too shady for anything but a few shrubs to grow. ~
Of course, I need to outline this garden with rocks!
The rock in the next pic is one I brought home in my car several years ago. Two guys had to load it in but I managed to get it out and move it about thirty feet. A couple of years ago, I moved it about twenty feet. This weekend, I moved it a couple of feet and pulled all the muscles in my back! Is that rock gaining weight or am I getting old?
This is the offending brute! ~
The sets are done, the garden is planted and baby is back to dancing! ~
As soon as I can stand up straight, I'll amaze you with something I paint and can. Unless my plans don't work out!
