Happy Birthday to Me!

Yep....the big 45!  I'm spending it at home....I have to say I was beginning to wonder just how good a day it could be when I woke to no power.  I woke at 6:30 and the little light in my bathroom flickered and the storm had begun outside and I no sooner got out of bed to go turn the coffee pot on when the power went out so back to bed I went!  I'm really not one to do that but if ya can't have coffee first thing in the morning, what's a girl to do?  .So 2 hours later, still no power! For cryin' outloud!!  I threw on some clothes, and was going to run over to the convenience store that is 6 miles away to grab a cup of coffee and lo and behold the power came back on!  All is well in my world again!!

Last Wednesday our a/c went on the fritz.  Then our garbage disposal started leaking and had to be taken out, which didn't bother me none.  A couple of truck issues on top of that but nothing too serious this time.  I got the wallpaper stripped in the bathroom and walls sanded.   There was a gathering of winter Texans here at the farm over the weekend ..... what a wonderful group of people!  Took a group over to visit the Amish on Saturday morning....always nice visiting over there!  So back at it this week....had two cleaning cancellations this week so I have the rest of the week to finish that bathroom! Today, it's scraping the ceiling!  How's that for celebrating a birthday?!! LOL  Works for me....I've been wanting to do this for a long time!

I'll also be getting some things listed in my etsy shoppe later today and getting some things together to take to the mercantile....multi-tasking!  As late as I slept today, I should be able to work a long while this evening!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

Glad you got your coffee finally! And hey, there's nothing wrong with sleeping in. Do it for those of us who can't. ;)

Have a fabulous birthday, Cindy!!!
