First thing yesterday morning Vicki wanted to go to the thrift shop, so I got dressed and rode along with her. I got yet another sweater, a wire napkin basket and a couple little crafty things. I also got a nice soap dish for the bathroom. After I got back, I did a little more work on my basket, and my ottoman arrived. I got that unboxed and opened it up and tried it out. It wasn’t bad, and much longer than I expected. I think with a memory foam mattress, it would be quite comfy. Will have to keep my eyes open for an inexpensive one.
I have my lace spider web table topper on the ottoman for now, it needed black and the cover is camel. I’m using it as my coffee table for the time being, until I get the taller legs attached to the old table.
For now, I have the coffee table in the bedroom closet, the only space big enough to hold it. But I thought about it over night and decided if the coffee table was just a bit taller, I could roll the ottoman right underneath it. So I measured, and I can get free legs from Sauder (free replacement parts for life), and I ordered a set of legs for one of the end tables. I will just bolt those on to the existing coffee table to make it taller, and they can be removed if it needs to be a coffee table again instead of a between chair/end table. Taller would be better for between the chairs anyway, but not as tall as the desk.
I already have a taker for the sleep sofa, so that will be gone around the first of November. I might want it out before then tho, but we’ll see. Leslie won’t be back from Wisconsin until then.
I have not heard about the job. I’m going on the premise that no news is good news. I really want this job, it is perfect to get me back into the workforce. It has been many, many years since I have worked for someone else. Start out slow with something I can enjoy. Close to home too.
I guess today I will do some more basket work. I’m formulating ideas for future baskets while I am working on this one. I may try making a base out of fimo. I still have all my clay, couldn’t part with it. I have seen other clay bases and they are nice. I also have some air dry clay, but I don’t know how that would hold up in moisture. I might try it tho. Just for giggles.
I’m going to take the last of the rotisserie chicken this morning and pop it into the crockpot and make something with it. Not sure what, will have to see what I have. Maybe a chicken chili.
I’m looking forward to this next week. The nights are supposed to be in the 70’s so I will be able to open the windows at night. That will save a bit on the electricity. Glenn and Diane should be back mid week or so, so I can hand over the park reins. Yay. They can see to getting the electricity fixed on G Street. The electricians didn’t come back this week. Going to have to get it fixed soon as people are trickling in. It won’t be long until it is someone on one of those two streets. They won’t be happy without electricity.
