Non-Productive Almost Productive

Well, January flew by fairly quickly. Though it feels like the last two decades have flown. I begin each month with a BIG list of things to get done. Normally, accomplish half if I’m lucky. January stayed with the normal accomplishments. I’m a little disappointed but I will once again make that list for February and begin again. I think I’m addicted to lists. 🙂

I didn’t finish reading any books, sigh. Read, but it was mostly articles. Too bad those don’t count on GoodReads. 🙂 I did buy two books thanks to the youngest son wanting his comic books. At least he is reading. Wish I could get his brother to read. Sigh.

February is here and I celebrated another birthday. The youngest made me a vanilla cake. I did not once get up and help him. I wanted to but he has to learn on his own. He has made several now. Hubby, Jessup, and Adric helped me celebrate. Daughter posted some nice pictures with some wonderful words. 🙂 She should be writing. She is good at it. The oldest son I didn’t hear from but he is out to sea (Navy) so I will forgive him. LOL.

I did get lazy this week and we ate out a lot. I figured my birthday week so why not. I do feel sluggish so back to cooking this week.

I hope your February goes great in all aspects of your life!

I’m pushing forward to get crap done! 🙂 LOL

A my bday 2018 Adric who made the cake and lighting the candles. I’m afraid we have a fire loving kid, he kept trying to do tricks with it. Ugh. LOL

J my bday 2018 Jessup, he looks thrilled. LOL

H my bday 2018 The hubby. 🙂

Glue Mess Gets Duck Taped

Duck Tape the desk My own photo! 🙂

Courtesy of my cellphone and a new app I discovered, BeFunky App. Love it!

My hubby built me my very own Creative Cave in the basement. He also gave me his old table he used for building his big model airplanes. He had knocked over a bottle of strong glue onto the table last year. We tried lots of things to get it off but only accomplished most of it.

I pondered for months what I wanted to do to cover it up.

Duck Tape!

Throughout the year I had seen the square sheets in several stores and thought yes! We went to Menards tonight to get some other supplies for remodeling the basement and I caught a glimpse of these. I knew that was what I wanted to do. I bought only three sheets for now to see how it looked and what design I wanted to go with.

I like it! 😉

I will continue the pattern the rest of the way across the table. The sheets were 1.99 each. Cheap design idea plus no mess or smell. I like the bits of wood still in the areas I won’t cover up. I hope the corners will stay down if not I will find more duck tape! LOL 🙂

I like the feel of it too. It covered up a few splinter parts as well. It will be easier to clean than the wood since the wood is not stained or clear coated.

Sometimes one needs to ponder awhile. Me, it seems like it takes months! LOL

Hope you have a great weekend, I think we will! We are going to go to my hometown fair where our other home is at. 🙂

More work to do there. Sad thing is we have not made it back much this year so it is in major need of cleaning and work. 🙂 That is ok, we will get to have fun in the evening at the carnival. Home owned and operated by local volunteers. I hear they added two more rides! 🙂

I can not wait to have a funnel cake and a pork burger!!!!

Its My Birfday.

My birthday selfie!
I’m enjoying a quiet day at home. I read a bit this morning. I enjoyed a glass of Pepsi, but thinking about getting a fountain pop. And maybe a cookie, yea.
The oldest son and I were going to go to a movie but saw they don’t offer early times in winter. Darn it. So thinking cheap night movie with all three boys but can we decide on a movie. I’ll get back to you on that one.

Unfortunately, hubby and daughter can not be here but maybe see them this weekend. Yay! Hubby for sure as long as the winter storms do not prevent that. Life of a trucker.

Enjoying all the happy birthdays on social medias. It makes it not so lonely. I sure miss my grandparents and my dad today. Grandma always made birthdays special. One of these days I hope to spend it with my mom. I didn’t grow up with her but we are OK. I’m not sad about it anymore. I understand better as an adult. And also miss my Aunt Mary’s homemade cakes. Yum.

I do so enjoy spending it with my kids and hubby when we can.

Happy birthday to anyone who has the same birthday!
