Between jobs

That's where I've been this week. I finished a huge project over the weekend which paid well enough to fund a couple of days off. I know it may not seem like writing for and helping to manage porn sites would feel much like work, and most of the time it doesn't. But still, it is nice once in a while to wake up and realize I have nothing to do but indulge myself in some other creative manner.

So this week I decided to do something with those old windows that Larry brought home to use for the cold frame he never built. Several times I mentioned they'd be great for craft projects and the other day when he didn't say "no" I took that as "yes" and created a painting on one of the windows.

Hmmm. I'm no artist but think it turned out kind of nice. Larry liked it, too, and came home with some hooks and a bit of chain to hang it in front of our bedroom window. Voila, a shabby chic suncatcher! It looks really neat at night from the outside with the light behind it. 

On a totally unrelated topic, we scored a fabulous Craigslist find this week - a $500 home gym with cables, weights and attachments for working the legs and upper body - for fifty bucks. The former owner decided he didn't need a workout machine after all and - being ridiculously wealthy -  was willing to blow it out.

It seems he didn't have time to exercise and indulge his other interest - the Corvette he bought for $42,000 on eBay. 

On eBay!!

When he told us that, I instantly revealed myself as the impoverished little rube I am by confessing that the most I'd ever ponied up for an eBay purchase was $100, and doing that caused me to break out in a nervous rash.

$42,000? Who are these people?

Later, Larry and I speculated that the car was just Viagra on wheels. I sure hope the fellow got his money's worth.  If I were a guy I'd have to end up hitting some pretty fantastic ass to justify spending that kind of money on an online auction.  Or maybe it was the risk that excited him.

I dunno. Maybe I just don't understand guys.

But back to the exercise machine. It's really nice, and between that and my elliptical stairclimber I have absolutely no excuse to not be well-toned before Slinky Sundress Season.

Thanks! I really enjoyed painting the window. I want to do another one this weekend. I haven't decided on a theme. Something sprink-like, I think. I'm inspired by a documentary I watched on the Emerald Isle last night.

Hope you have a good Easter weekend!

Very nice picture.

And exercise is good. The workout I get from lifting my food to my mouth is ver taxing. ;)

Good for you - and lots of jealousy over your slinky dress body - hopefully you don't spill a big glob of yellow mustard right in the middle of it, and take away all that interest from your toned and perfect figure!
Love the pics of the kids and the new pony. Appears you've healed up nicely from your ankle disaster. I'm very glad you did.
