- It's too cold and humid for spray-paint to dry properly.
- It's too cold and WET to leave the back door open long enough for paint on the inside of it to dry.
- Ditto the front door!
- It's too cold to do anything in the garage.
- It's too wet outside to get any work done around the yard.
- Rain = mud. Mud + dogs = mud in the house, constantly, which = nasty, horrible, icky, cruddy floors, which = a very, very angry Laura when she gets out of bed in the morning and steps on all that mess.
- Cedar allergies + humidity affecting my asthma = can't even sing, so can't practice my music
Actually, I spent like 90% of the weekend sewing costume stuff. So it's not like I didn't get anything done, but...sigh.
ApartmentTherapy asks today, "What is the first thing you see when upon entering your home?" I see this:
What about you - what do you see when you walk in the door?
P.S. - on Sunday I found not one but two Black Widow spider egg sacs in my Bauhinia mexicana!!! I clipped out the branch they were on with my pruners and stomped them to a pulp on the patio. I generally don't just kill things - I'm an organic gardener and a huge proponent of beneficial insects in the garden ecosystem - and I love spiders, actually. But I absolutely draw the line at a creature that could kill one of my dogs, who can't say to me, "Mom, something bit me and now I feel weird." Sorry, thousands and thousands of potential spiders. You are OFF THE ISLAND.
