April’s full moon is tonight and it’s called the Pink Moon because all the phlox are supposed to be blooming. Yeah…Mother Nature is still drunk. Anyway, it’s also a supermoon so go stand outside tonight and enjoy it. My Wolves will all be out howling. 😉
There was a week and a weekend. I did stuff. That is all.
Okay. Kidding. Y’all know I won’t let you off that easy. Besides, I have pictures! So, let’s gett the easy stuff over. TV was mostly a bust. I caught up on a couple of DVR’d shows but kept falling asleep. I haven’t even managed to watch The Masked Singer so no idea who got unmaked. Maybe tonight. If I don’t fall asleep.
Sports was mainly Cardinals. They swept the Reds. Yay. Not necessarily for beating the Reds but for sweeping and being above .500 on the season. Plus, they need to keep winning to close the gap on the NL Central. They’re 1.5 games out behind the Brewers. My OSU Cowgirls had an off weekend. They play again this coming weekend. OU lost a game last week in overtime but came back and run-ruled that team in the second game. Go teams!
Writing. I did some. I made myself laugh. I put Sade in a crazy situation. I gave her two dragon bodyguards that she soooo does not want. There’s a cat. Don’t ask. And a foot chase. I’m just over 70K words. I’m not upping my word goal just yet. I have some scenes that will probably be saved for a later book. Not sure how much I’ll lose there, but there’s still more to happen so I’m guessing around 80K final. We’ll see. 🤞 today is a good day.
Insomnia is back from spring break. It could have stayed in Cancun. Or Ft. Lauderdale. South Padre. Wherever. It sucks. If I nap, things get thrown off even worse, but so does falling asleep at 9 p.m. Sucks. Totally.
So, besides some really good words, I also got a project done that’s been hanging out there. I didn’t want to do anything to the backsplash behind the kitchen sink until the faucet got fixed. And since the faucet got fixed and I had both sides of the counter cleared, I dug out the room of peel-n-stick wallpaper I got for $7.00 on the clearance aisle at Walmart ages ago. The hard part was figuring out the pattern run so I could match, along with the weird lengths and cut-outs. I should explain that the other side of the kitchen–where the stove is–backs up to the fireplace so the backsplash over there is white brick. Keep that in mind as you peruse my after pics. I should have taken a before but basically, it’s Formica that we painted over using Rustoleum Hammered Silver paint. That was like…20 years ago. Seriously. Anyway, Ta-DA!
The picture on the left is corner where the coffee maker goes. The picture on the right is the opposite side of the sink and simply a close-up of the pattern. I think it’s pretty darn cool looking despite that the fact that it took me a couple of hours to do a run of about 10 feet. And yes, my countertops ARE turquoise marble Fromica and yes, they ARE original to the house. I still love them because I’m retro-weird like that. Anyway, that was my Saturday, which WAS followed by a nap. Hard work, people. Hark work!
So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Progress on house projects. Progress on the WIP.
