    People on my mind while I’m piecing together our family room this week:

    1. My hubby, off at training. Me miss heem. :sniffle: I am also very nervous and excited for him to see the new room.
    2. Lisa. (Mary mary, quite contrary!) Her wedding is coming up. Fast. Whose wedding is it, anyway?
    3. Robin. Robin kept popping into my mind, and it could have been because they lost the house, but it could be something entirely different. I said a little prayer, just in case.
    4. Lazy Daisy, because when I think of prayer, I think of Lazy Daisy.
    5. YellowRose, because when I think of Lazy Daisy, now YellowRose is automatically attached, because they’re sisters, you know.
    6. Paige, my best friend of 20-something years, because she’s moving this week and I wish I were working on one of her rooms instead of mine. I would rather be helping her break in her new pool pack & unpack!
    7. MommaK, because she’s moving too. I am so excited about her move, it truly is a dreamy dream home! She doesn’t have a pool, though, so hm. I guess I would still rather help her by giving myself a makeover with all her cool new makeup organize her new pantry.
    8. Jacque, because. She has been absolutely amazing, and she respects and protects my personal space. All that while she serves God and her incredible family.
    9. My Mother-in-law, because I need to call her back. She is anxious to see the room, but I am doubly anxious to finish it before she sees it!
    10. My sister, who just got hitched to this guy that’s had her chained up in the basement head over heels for a few years now. He better treat her well, and by that I mean as well as my hubby treats me, or my hubby and her hubby are gonna be washing clothes – and my hubby’s gonna punch her hubby right. in. the. nose.
    11. Taba, who is also moving, and I wish I could freakin’ help all my friends move!!
    12. Clara, my friend, who I need to catch up with. Soon.
    13. A few people who I feel need prayers have crossed my mind a lot today, and I hope their lives are touched in a way that changes their hearts.
    Bonus:
    14. Of course, each person who leaves a comment becomes a part of my day, and I will stop by and see you over the course of the weekend.

    Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I think Hugh Laurie (House) is adorable, snarky and brilliant. I love how he plays his role on House, and I :gulp: think he’s cute. (What is wrong with me?) That is the only show on television that I have. to. watch. I get grumpy if I miss it.

    hugh laurie
    2. Another show we like NUMB3RS. My hubby and I both enjoy this one, he likes the math, and I like the boys.

    rob morrow
    3. Sigh. Those are the only two shows that I watch with any regularity, really. I catch CSI on occasion, and Law & Order SVU – but there again, I watch it just for the boys:

    george eads  
    4. I haven’t really been able to watch much of anything since we started ripping up the house. Our TV has been in in the dining room for a month, and we don’t have cable in there.

    5. It’s been interesting to see how the girls occupy their time with very limited television. They’re really creative girls, and love their Littlest Pet Shop playhouse and critters. Seriously, who wouldn’t love these little things? They’re adorable.

    littlest pet shop turtle
    6. I’ve been occupying my time with shopping for supplies, carting around insulation and lumber, ordering switchplates and metal cutting blades for our sawzall.

    7. And also getting the skinny on a house we adore to figure out if we really, really   want to bid on it. It’s amazing. Well, it could be amazing. It needs a lot of work. We like work.

    8. I had another version of this week’s 13 written lastnight, but it will remain unpublished. Feels good to have gotten it out of my head though, and it was funny, in an “effed up” stalker-y kind of way.

    9. I had another dream lastnight that I remember well enough to blog in my dream blog, but really, it was about shingles and diarrhea. People were sick, and it was smelly! Yes I remember smells from my dream. Kinda smelled like my front yard, but that’s another story for after we move far, far away. Anyway, I’ll spare everyone the dream and hope for a better dream tonight.

    10. We’ve had rain, rain and more rain here over the last couple of weeks. The other day, I was determined to mow the front yard – it was long and thick – and my mower about died trying to cut it. Also, while I was cutting the grass? Torrential downpour, three rows to go. Ugh.

    11. I haven’t had to water my glorious floral landscaping in a week. There’s one great thing about all the rain! I love how fresh flowers look after a nice rain.

    12. I am having a hard time thinking that one of the rooms in our home is going to be white for a few more days. I cannot. stand. white. walls. I am tempted to throw some food coloring into the joint compound. It works, trust me, I’ve done it before.

    13. I am still trying to find a floor. If you run across a nice one, wrap it up and send it my way, would you? What the heck. Carpet or Hardwood? Linoleum layered hardwood looking plank stuff, or vinyl? I am so ready to just chuck the decision making out the window and buy some peel & stick – you know?

    Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!

    This week I thought I’d let my photography speak for me. Here are Thirteen Macro Photographs I took especially for today’s Thursday Thirteen. If a picture is truly worth 1,000 words, that’d make this entry worth 13,000 words. That has to be some sort of a record!
    :winking:

    There are 12 more, have a look!

    1. Only one person met the challenge from last Thursday. WTG, Jen! Thanks for remembering!
    2. I’m skeert of the dark. I always think people are lurking in the dark. Wearing black. Gonna pounce – hurry up and shut the door – slam! Yes I am. Big. Fraidy. Cat.
    3. I told someone to go away like, uhm, over a year ago, and it apparently never sunk in. Ever encounter anyone so thick? Just curious.
    4. I love my new haircut. I feel like “me” again with short hair. Even my mom said she doesn’t like me with long hair. I must have been really stinky, or mean or something before my haircut. Did you notice? Why didn’t you say something?!
    5. I was hired for a new project lastnight that is going to be super cool. Coming soon – three week deadline on that one! (Hint: illustrations.)
    6. I have worn off the following letters on my keyboard: E, U, I, O, S, H, J, K, L, N and M. Strange, I didn’t know what they were when I looked, I had to type them. I still type over 90 wpm. My 4 year old knows which letters I’m missing too, by sight. Please send donations for a new keyboard to missingallmyletters@needanewkeyboard-dot-com.
    7. I have a wicked nice tan already. I never tan – but I think my triple-sunburn in Florida last summer has prepped my skin for sun a little better. This year maybe I won’t burn when we get there!
    8. We’re looking at spending over a week at the Nickelodeon property later this year. WooHoo!
    9. Looks like this is going to be the weekend of big giant dumpster in the driveway. We’re starting the ripping apart of the house project. Wish me sanity – send Advil.
    10. My BP just skyrocketed thinking about it.
    11. I’m glad it didn’t drop instead. (My BP. haha!)
    12. If you say “great TT, here’s mine!” and fly right by, I’ll hunt down your blog and spam it, by golly. Knock that crap off. ‘Nuff said.
    13. The new Toyota commercial makes me cry. When does a car become more than just a car? For me, it was when I avoided an accident with ease, was able to brake on a dime, and turn up the stereo from the steering wheel. When did your car become more than just a car?

    Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I’m blogging my dreams now over on my new dream blog, Just Dreamy. I’ve already had a couple of doozies, too! Colleen, thank you for your interest in my dreams, this is all your fault.

    2. The next post I publish will be how to get off of blogger. Pinki Swear. I started walking Shelli through it last weekend, so I’m going to write it down while it’s all fresh in my mind.

    3. While you’re reading this, I am in my studio sketching my new painting. It’s 18″ x 36″, and I’ll post the sketch when I’ve completed it. Here’s one clue: Vitamin Sea. That’s all I’m giving you.

    4. I will also begin working on the other series, since I finally got over to the store to pick up the backdrop for those paintings. That’s the one where a whole bunch of you told me your favorite bite sized edible nummy. If you didn’t make a suggestion, please feel free! I’ve got a list going!

    5. The first color I normally put on my palette is raw umber. It’s also probably the color I use the least. Strange.

    6. There are some new brushes that I really want, they’re Aqualon Wisps. Well. Now that I’m looking at them, I don’t like them as much. Hm. Nevermind then. :razz: Does that ever happen to you? Please tell me it does.

    7. I think I am finally going to end the week on the other side of this weight loss stand still I’ve been on for over a month. I never was good with a yo-yo, especially when it’s wrapped around my hips, if you know what I’m sayin’. I’ll be one helluva happy camper if I get through this plateau – I haven’t even blogged at my weight loss blog (Pounds2Go). My head is hanging in the hall of shame. Crossing my fingers that things will perk up by Friday and I can be inspired, and inspire others again.

    8. I did, however, pull my pants down the other day. :shocked: Capri jeans, that is. Still zipped and buttoned, I didn’t even have to wriggle. That was cool!

    9. Our girls and I went to a park the other day with my neighbor friend and her kids, and boy did I get a workout. We played a bit of tag, and I was “it”, a lot. By the end of it all, her 10 year old said parents shouldn’t be able to run that fast, and shortly after that I knocked the top of my head into a beam. No more runnin’ for me! Doh.

    That (still) hurt(s).

    10. Right now I have more great photographs that I want to blog than I have days to blog them. I try to put up a photo a day, but I may have to double up before some of them get lost or forgotten.

    11. I have to share my feet, including my creepy naked toenail photograph. If you’re easily queasy, now would be a good time to cover your eyes. Please keep in mind that until now, I could count the people who have seen my naked toenails on one hand. It’s a rare thing, almost more rare (rarer?) than a blue moon. Okay an eclipse. Something rare. Just pick something rare.

    Okay everybody – IEEEEW! Ooooohhhh! Aaaaahhhhh. Happy toes!

    We love stories with happy endings, especially when it involves toe rings and new flip flops. (MommaK, I did you proud, my friend, didn’t I? :sniffles: You needed that. I know it.)

    12. I love my new flip flops. They’re pink. They’re soft and leathery and ooooh my new favorites. And I’m so happy the weather is nice enough for them! Yayyy for flips flops and pretty toes! What color are your flip flops, and more importantly, what color are your toenails? Just curious.

    13. Here’s a challenge for you Thirteeners out there. Get a post-it and a pencil, or print the list of this weeks’ participants from ThursdayThirteen.com. Over the next 4 days, make a mark every time you visit and leave a thoughtful comment with someone listed in this week’s TT edition (comments will close at 7AM CST on Saturday morning, so any time after that is good for printing the list). Stop back here on Monday and let me know how many you visited, and the top 2 will be next weeks featured blogs at the hub. Sound cool?

    Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I We finished the harp, and it works! Cait is taking it to music class today to turn in. It’s not perfectly in tune, but we did take it down to the music store to get some help with tuning it.

    That thing took me hours, and gave me blisters, and had me cussing – and sweating – and cussing s’more. I’ve done more math in the past week than I’ve done since high school Algebra. I told Cait that if she gets a good grade, it’s mine – and if she gets a bad grade she can keep it. ha! I’m totally gonna pass fourth grade this time! Dude! I’m so excited!

    2. Our local zoo is having free admission this week – and they have a whole new “little” Austrailian Outback kind of area. The kids have a long weekend so we’ll probably go, and then you’ll get to look at even MORE photographs of critters!

    3. Inbetween drill bit changes, jigsaw cuts and fine tuning – I did some landscaping this week. I think I may even have the beginning of a :gasp: tan! I picked up a bunch of mulch and river rock, and really went to town on some things I’ve been wanting to get done for a while in the yard. I’ll get pics after things start to bloom and it actually looks like something!

    4. I finished developing one of my blog/website projects, ThursdayThirteen.com. It has also needed some fine tuning this week, but it’s fully functional now and the very first check-in entry is up, have you left your link there yet? We’re hoping everyone who participates (since it does vary from week to week) will check in with their links, and then you can go through comments and see if there’s anyone new you don’t normally visit. There has been a great response to the launch so far, and now I’m saving my pennies and checking my credit card balances to see if I can get one of everything in the merchandise store.

    5. I have two more projects to work on, but I think – I think?! CAN I? Is it TIME? I think I am to a point now where I can PAINT again! on CANVAS even! WOAH. That’s freakin’ me out. I will have to ask the ants if I can work in my studio, they seem to have taken up residence in my skylight. (It would kinda suck to have them trapsing over one of my wet oil paintings, you know?) One more thing on the list of “things we gotta fix if we’re gonna sell the house and move.”

    6. I really want to move. We like Tennessee and Alabama. Right now I am really leaning toward Alabama, because the twang is better there I think. That’s what it’s all about, anyway. The twang. And the slower pace. And the warmer weather, big tall trees, beautiful skylines, and a total lack of corn. Oh how I love anything that is not Illinois! Get me OUTTA HERE!

    7. Yes, I’m taking my kid to the doctor. I had the appointment scheduled, and we’re all good, and the rash is looking better, and it figures – right? You always get better when you make an appointment! Except for when we went to the music store, and she was running, and I told her not to, and she took a nosedive into the pergo, and ouch! That hurt! Only no – it did NOT, because now I’m TICKED OFF because YOU TOLD ME NOT TO RUN and I GOT HURT and I HATE IT WHEN YOU’RE RIGHT, MOMMY! NO! I’M FINE! DON’T TOUCH ME!

    grrr.

    The bloody nose is fine. The huge bump dead center on her noggin? Not sure about that. Glad we’ve got that appointment scheduled now, though.

    8. The guy at the music store makes me feel like I stepped back into the 80’s. He’s got the rock & roll guy hair, long and stuff, and he’s got the guitar playing fingernails, but he is SO nice. So now I’m confused, because I’ve stereotyped them all along. They’re really not all party animals who only hang out with girls in g-strings. That’s like – really wierd. I’ve had a hard time wrapping my brain around that one – and I’ve caught myself creating scenarios during our conversations that he’s going to jump up onto the counter and break an electric guitar over something and throw it off into the aisles of sheet music.

    I need therapy.

    9. That baby bird photograph I took the other day? The little guy in our gutter? Well here’s the rest of that story. He hopped out of the gutter and made a sputtering topsy-turvy flight over to the swingset and proceeded to hop to and fro. He was new to flying, and I feared for his life. He was close to the fenceline, and I couldn’t bear to watch. I ushered the girls away into the driveway, I put my camera down and distracted myself doing something else. I have no idea if the bird made it, or became a mid-afternoon dog treat. I don’t want to know. I can’t think about it. Jeez will you please change the subject? This is really depressing. (That cat lives a block away, and was photographed separately, believe it or not!)

    10. I found a house that I love. Here. It’s so pretty! I hope it’s still for sale in a year!

    11. 8 bags of river rock + 4 bags mulch + camry nice big roomy trunk = everything fits great ÷ that’s really heavy stuff = tires rub against top of the wheel well, you moron. Way to break your new car! (No, I didn’t. It was touch and go there though, potholes and all that.)

    12. Ben and Jerry’s Berried Treasure Sorbet is not only quiet delish, but it also makes you completely numb inside your whole mouth, and the pure coldness touches the very marrow of your bones and causes uncontrollable shivering in a 75 degree environment. How yummy is that!

    13. Once again, trying to remember dreams to blog them in the new digs – suffering from CRS. I think I’ll just call that project a total flop and hope it’s like making a doctor’s appointment – everything suddenly gets better. I think I can I think I can, I think I can!

    I wish you all a wonderful, pleasant, warm and sunny Easter weekend! Thanks for stoppin’ by!

    Thirteen Things about Leanne, Thursday, April 5, 2006
    My other Thirteens
    1. I’m working on that getting away from Blogger post. Truly. I am. I was going to make this TT into a theme about it, but I didn’t have the heart. I couldn’t. I hit backspace over “Thirteen Steps to….” so fast my fingers spun.

    2. My sister, her boyfriend and their two kids have been staying with me for a couple of days. We ate chinese lastnight – and this was her fortune from her cookie: “You will be hungry again in one hour”. She felt cheated and betrayed, and somehow manipulated by their advertising. I can’t blame her. That fortune can only mean one of a few things, right?

    • You’re such a pig, it’s obvious that when you stop eating, you don’t stop for long.
    • We’ve laced your food with something so that it will run right through you. Muahahahaha!
    • You’re at a chinese buffet, and you’re eating like a bird. Goofy American! Have some ice cream!

    2. Another fortune cookie keeper – on the backside you get to “learn Chinese”. Fun, I say! Who knows if anyone pronounces it right, but what the heck. We give it a shot every time. Lastnight we learned a new word, “Fish”. Fish, in Chinese, is “Yu”. So here’s my question. If I didn’t like their fish, and I told the waiter “Yu Suck”, would he take offense?

    3. How many lightbulbs have I blown in my dining room this week? 5. FIVE. Why does my light fixture hate the clear light bulbs with the blue tint? Hates them. Blows them up within 12 hours of realizing they’re there. Something Yuey is going on with my fixture. (get it? haha! I am so funny I should stand up!)

    4. I was helping my sis get a map to the funeral services they attended during their stay. My sister, who is logistically challenged, saw a chunk of road on the map and said “wow that’s a long ways!” between point A and point B. I assured her that it was just a few miles, she would have a hard time getting lost. Her boyfriend had a blonde moment and tried to explain that “the road isn’t as long as it appears on the paper” in a way I can’t even articulate in words – and then we got into a whole “objects on map are smaller than they appear in real life” funfest. We laughed until we cried.

    Next time you want to confuse a young driver, hand them a map from mapquest and tell them to look for the big red star in the parking lot of their destination. Just like on the map. It’s there, I swear it.

    5. My nephew and I watched the Eagle’s Nest cam for quite a while yesterday, there are two eggs! They should be hatching (both nests) in the next week. We’re all excited here to see those bald little Eagle babies making a bunch of noise. If you haven’t been there, I have two links in my sidebar to two different cams. Our favorite is the top one, thanks to Nancy for the link!

    Updated Look at her eggs! Yayy for babies!

    eagle cam nest eggs
    Updated again 7:08PM CST: We were so excited to catch the switch! The mom & dad take turns on the nest – boy there were squawks of delight that made us squeal over here in our chairs! They even gave eachother a lil affection before the change. Awww…

    6. I’ve been trying too hard to remember my dreams lately, and now I am only remembering little pieces of them! I hate when that happens! I even bought a domain to have a blog specific for my dreams. All the pressure – and now I don’t have any content. Just my luck.

    7. One dream I keep meaning to write about is about a friend I used to have that I miss very much. I dreamt it in a Brady Bunch screenshot mode, so she was in one of the corners and I was in another one, and we were also both online. I was writing or talking to someone about how sad I was that our friendship ended, why I was so hurt over some words that were exchanged that ultimately caused me to pull so far back from our friendship that it killed it. She never understood how I could have possibly been upset, because she was so upset herself, and she ended up crying when she realized how sad I was over the whole thing.

    The strange thing – all the stuff in my little Brady Bunch box is true. My mind embellishes her side because I would truly have no idea. I am a loyal friend, truly – you couldn’t find a more loyal friend – until I feel used, manipulated or betrayed.

    8. I have two paintings by that same old friend hanging over my bed, and I think about her every day. Even though our friendship ended nearly a year ago.

    9. I’ve been feeling a little anxious lately, my heart has been wonky – I think it’s because I really want to move. Every day that passes I am more and more uncomfortable and I like our property less and less. We have so much to do to get this house ready to put on the market. I’m dyin’ over here. Send help!

    10. I was contacted by a magazine who wants to chat with me and maybe include a bit about me in an article, and it took me a week to gain up the courage to call/e-mail her back. I am probably nervous for nothing, because I probably chewed my fingers about it for too long and she found a new person to interview. That is also just my luck.

    11. We went to Payless lastnight, because my sister wears these strange chunky shoes that look like a leopard had a hairball moment all over, that are also very uncomfortable. We ended up with new shoes for just about everyone. For the kids, the girls all have matchin’ clogs:

    For the moms, we went retro:
    12. I about flipped out yesterday morning when I looked out at my bird feeders. I got one shot. Just one. And it’s not that great, but I’ll show you anyway.

    13. My prize question of the day: if mushrooms are a fungus, how is it that they go bad? Mold on top of fungus. That just seems so wrong.


    ******************************************
    A special prize goes to Lisa, for noticing I can’t count! Yayyyyy!

    1. My girlfriends think I should care less about what other people think. I’m not sure I can do that, what do you think?

    2. Great ideas fall right out of my butt onto the floor head onto my desk. It just happens. I can’t stop them, it’s like giving birth, only completely painless. It’s a gift. Or quite possibly a curse, I’ll get back to you on that.

    3. I censor what I write on my blog, probably more than anyone else does or would, if given the chance.

    4. This sentence has been banned, removed, and replaced with something more appropriate.

    5. I am my own thought police.

    6. So go look at the pretty pictures instead, because I’ve prohibited myself from saying anything that could be misconstrued, twisted, and blogged about by a bunch of people who might not “get” what I said.

    7. If what goes around comes around, I’ve been dishing out some stanky stuff. If anyone is aware of the time limit for the coming back around part, please let me know. I’m still waiting, and starting to get paranoid. (indiscreetly sniffing for b.o.)

    8. I’m starting to wonder if skinny bitches were once fat & happy. Is that what happens? I know I used to tell myself “I’d rather be fat & happy”, so I decided to finally complete that sentence and add “than be a skinny bitch”. Why did I do that? Because I’m pretty snarky when I can’t eat whateverthehelliwanna, I’m losing weight, and so the next logical step would be… yep, you guessed it.

    9. Who truly believes in their heart of hearts that “imitation is the finest form of flattery”? Really. How to you perceive imitation?

    “Anything you can do, I can do better,
    I can do anything better than you.
    yes I can – no you can’t – yes I can – no you caaaannnnnnn’t!”
    Nevermind my singing, what are your thoughts on imitation?

    10. Another busy week so far, and in case you haven’t already, go visit MommaK and tell her she’s pretty. And that her blog is pretty, too.

    11. I considered a “how to switch from Blogger” entry, but it would be somewhat long and technically detailed. Would anyone be interested in that entry if I wrote it?

    12. Where’s my two dollars?

    13. A couple of fun projects in the works – a website design (a fellow artists gallery), a new blog launch, the wedding couple painting, the 4×4 paintings series, my own gallery reformatting and updating, Lisa‘s wedding – I’m still uber busy here and blogging by the seat of my pants (when the voices in my head tell me not to delete it after I’ve published it), so please forgive the complete irregularity of my blog lately. A picture’s still worth a thousand words, right? ;)
