Rakin' It In



It isn't even my birthday yet and somehow I've managed to rake in the goods already. The mother shocked me with the best of both worlds: More cute shoes, a new belt, and a cordless drill! (I got it early thanks to my continued discussion about buying a new drill.) The drill came with all kinds of stuff including a new hammer, a few sets of pliers and a stud sensor in addition to about two dozen different drill and driver bits.

Then, my former client turned friend sent me a darling necklace that arrived on Saturday. And, of course, there's still the unused Lowe's gift card that arrived last month because of a calendar error. It doesn't get much better than that.

I have to call the JULIE people to get the utilities marked for our fence project and make sure Lawrence is still on for Wednesday. While rain is in the forecast today and tomorrow, it's supposed to (noddin' at KayO)be dry on Wednesday. I'll take the rain tomorrow -- as long as it doesn't rain on my cake -- if it will be dry to get the fence up Wednesday.

I didn't get the porch done yesterday as I'd liked, so I guess I won't be entering the Houseblogs contest with TrueValue. (They're giving away three $300 cards for entering your favorite project.)Oh well.

That is fabulous, NV! Nothing like a little early-birthday present out of the blue! And a gret combination of tools and wearables. I love new jewelry....if only my order from www.firemountaingems.com would arrive, I could make some new stuff for myself, er I mean, my friends. :)

The first thing I noticed in that picture was the pair of shoes. Yes, very cute. Your mom has good taste. The necklace is awesome too!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! That photo perfectly captures your personality--cute girly shoes and a cordless drill. =)

Thanks, everyone! All the early was good because the real deal is getting off to a nasty start (no power).

Jayne -- That's kind of what I thought, too. I think I could start a trend and carry the B&D bag. It would MATCH the shoes and belt ...

MORE cute shoes for the DEPOT! Or wherever! LOVE those damn shoes! And that little necklace is just adorable and such good juju. You raker 'er in girl, and deserve every bit of it. :)
