Remember these beautiful thrift store stemmed crystal dessert dishes I found for only $8 ??? If I wasn't sick before this certainly pushed me over the edge, my fat kitty, Miss Sissy whom we rescued from her previous disinterested owner, decided to climb her fat fluffy butt on to my wicker bookcases where these beauties were temporarily living till I could find them a more suitable home and knocked every single one of them to the floor. One survived. My dear sweet and extremely patient husband, whom I call Mr Darcy, was in the attic with me putting down more flooring so we could store our Christmas and fall decorations in separate areas making our annual decorating easier. The sound of crystal shattering on the floor is unmistakeable even when one hears it all the way up in the attic! I'm sick, simply, utterly sick. I didn't even have the heart to fuss at Miss Sissy with my normal "bad kitty" speech. It was just too much for me. *sigh* Now if this had been my only recently purchased thrifted bargain to bite the dust this week then I would say it's been a bad week and not merely a horribly bad week but it's not. My dear sweet son who is a real Mr Darcy in the making is 6' 3" and has the bull in the china shop gait to prove it, day before yesterday he managed to knock a 3 plate holder off the kitchen wall along with the plates of course and one has a nasty unhideable chunk knocked off the rim. *sigh* Sometimes I really feel I can't have anything nice, even if it's thrift store nice. OK I'm done whining. I really am. I'm blessed and it could have been so much worse, these are only stupid possessions and matter nothing in the scheme of things. It's just hard when I'm already feeling so physically drained from work and a crud from Hades that is persisting in taking residence in my throat and chest. I'm sorry dear friends, please forgive my rambling. I had such hopes of posting lampshade pictures, sideboard decorated (albeit unpainted) pictures, pictures of something ... instead of nothing.
Ever get a song in your head that is the background music of your day? Mine is "It's the most wonderful time of the year" *smiles* Have a wonderfully blessed and disaster free weekend!
