As I start this post, it is 7:28 eastern standard time, 49 degrees and feels like it is 40. I just went outside to take some pictures with jeans a cotton top with a flannel shirt on top of that and flip flops. It was invigorating and felt really good coming back inside to this cozy little cottage. No heater going yet, and hopefully I won’t have to go up into the attic to get it down. We only did that when it was going to be cold for several days. It’s supposed to get up to 67 today and 80’s again by the middle of the week.
There were three iron window coverings that we found curbside somewhere in our travels and I don’t know how long ago, but I’ve had them set aside to use and today I’m going to work on at least one of them and hopefully mount it to the wall where the heart is drawn at the back of my main garden..
I have a small can of oops paint in our stash of curbside finds too and I want to paint the heart red on the big one and maybe the hearts and the scrollwork on the top of the two small ones. Color, color is what I need.
I want to hang the two smaller hearts on either side of this window which is in the ‘scullery’, on east side of the cottage. I will hang the bird cage elsewhere and take down the iron bracket on the other side. The cottage needs to be pressure washed and repainted, and the window trim at least needs a good hosing down for now. I helped Dear Husband pressure clean in the past, I just need to read up on putting the oil in and cranking it up, plus I think the tires need to be filled with air. Hmmmm. I always have enjoyed painting, there is something soothing about it. All in good time, section of wall at a time.
It’s time for some breakfast, to get a loaf of bread going in the bread machine, then it will be time to work on my project. It’s now a few minutes after 8 a.m., so it’s plenty light out and it should start to warm up a bit too.
Enjoy your day ~ FlowerLady Lorraine
There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept,
things we don't want to know but have to learn,
and people we can't live without but have to let go.
