Brain Explosion.

I don't know where to start.  There's so much going on around here and I don't even have time to write posts much less take pictures to go with them.  I ran outside just now and snapped a couple.

It's been really hot here this summer which is amazing.  Things still look pretty green though.

I'm still getting orders for cushion covers.  It seems unbelievable to me.

The living room is almost finished being painted.  It's slow going because Mr LC is repairing the plaster and I have to follow along with painting at his speed.

I know I still haven't taken pictures of the bathroom because I don't have any dodads or pictures on the walls yet.

Mr LC is making four sets of drapes for other folks as we speak.  Besides looking like a tip, the dining room is now festooned with drapery fabric.

I have a repetitive stress injury in my left shoulder which  involves physio therapy and acupuncture.  I'm not allowed to be on the computer more than twenty minutes a day.  Laptops are the devil.

I'll now insert a picture.

We have to go to a wedding this evening.  Did I tell you I hate weddings?

My shoulder is killing me so I have to go.

Guess what,  WE'RE GOING TO FRANCE FOR THREE WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to Paris and eat a macaron.  Don't anybody try and stop me either.

You've all kinds of greatness happening! I'm so happy that you get to take a trip to Paris. How exciting and fun and exciting! I personally think you should eat a whole bunch of macaroons. I mean, when else will you get this chance?

Your garden looks lovely. All our grass is dead. We've had very little rain. I like it, but the farmers are suffering.

Can't wait to see photos of your house.

Sorry about the shoulder! That stinks!

Raising macarons to your mouth might be considered repetitive stress. Stephen should feed them to you.

Deb, I'm so excited for your trip. You take care of that shoulder & listen to the big wigs, 'cause I want you to be able to type that ol France trip out so I can come along. Are you packing up your grandson to haul along with you?

The outside of your house is fab! I'm so jealous! I wish I had some of your insight...

and hip hop hooray for your cushion covers!!!

I've missed you too. That's bad news about your shoulder.

20 minutes a day?! That's brutal.

And you are busy. Soon though, the lounge room will be finished and you'll be off to France. You'd better blog that! And there you can buy some do-dads for the bathroom. French do-dads.

At first I thought I read you were going to France to eat a macaron a day for three weeks... Ha!
Sorry to hear about your shoulder. Take it easy and enjoy the lovely hot weather while it lasts. Xx

Patricia said...

What rotten luck with the shoulder, and how can you blog under such restrictions. Look after yourself and how wonderful, going to Paris! Definitely have one macaroon of every colour, and look forward to the pictures!

you do have a lot going on.
i'm soooooooo jealous of your macaroon paris trip. not jealous of your shoulder though.:) said...

I think you have a duty to eat a macaroon for each of us here if you can't take us along it's the least you can do :) Good luck with the shoulder and enjoy yourselves!

Oh, how I've missed you Deb! I always love to see a post from you. :)
Sounds like you've been a busy couple lately...better than the other way I suppose.
France?! you lucky'll have to tell us how that came I use all your tips on my husband. Surely macaroons aren't vegan but if I were in France, I might try one.

Missed you!

France? You should come to Italy! Sorry about your shoulder. I sew through my finger the other day, I'm injured too. Happy to know you're still having cushion orders...things never come alone, right?? Macarons!! Macarons!!

Lilli said...

You do have a beautiful garden, Deb. I know we both have to endure cold winters, so I wonder why you have warm summers, and all we get is rain. Not that you don't deserve it!

Have you been to France before? I'd be so happy to go.

Three weeks!! I'm really dying..well almost but not quite, to know what they taste like. They look sort of dry to me...but I could be wrong. It's happened before.

Hope your shoulder is on the mend!
