Last night, it was warm and muggy, i was thinking how nice it would be to have a simple top that was easy and very cool. I am no Calvin Klein but, i have created what i think will be a huge success, Ladies and Gentlemen.........I give you the Skirtain.
My model, who wishes to remain anonymous,(for reasons only known to him) is showing two differant ways to wear the skirtain. Above is the shirt, cool, easy, flattering and full of fun.
oh just wait guys, there are many more uses for this Skirtain! I give you, the curtain!
The Lamp Shade!
And Last but not least, the trash can dresser upper! Smile at the cuteness when you toss your trash!
Acknowledgements: A special thank you to my model, who also suggested the name for this beauty, a name that stuck like glue!

Oops, the first two pics are sideways, but you`ll get the picture..... The first pic is what we started with, pale pink walls, and a wood floor.
These are not in any particular order............ So just keep scrolling at the changes in the Kingdom. Sorry about this sideway pic!
Every Kingdom needs a Hop Scotch board!
Grandpas carving in the apple tree.
Lady Bugs crawling all over the floor.
The Princess loves blueberries...............hense, the blueberry bush......kinda sorta. they are messy little things and litter the floor.
The above tree with roots!
The Apple tree below, the princess`s mama added the butterflies and dragonflies.
The Princess and her tire swing.............well, i`ve never claimed to be an artist! But i do an ok stick princess.
The handprint wall of the princess`s subjects. That was Rebecca`s very cute idea!
Aren`t the the cutest!
And of course, the sun! In the corner you can get a little peek of the kingdoms brand new window!
We drove down there specifically for the little princess`s dance recital, and i have to say, she was gorgeous and danced very well for an almost 4 year old. She is standing next to one of her best friends. We enjoyed watching the dancers, it was very entertaining.
I have one or two other blog entries to finish but i am doing it in two or three parts, my computer has been acting up big time, this is my 4th attempt to blog today.........So i`m trying the short and sweet attempt untill i figure out what is wrong.
So, in this blog, i will tell you about our little project for the princess`s playhouse, which she has named, The Kingdom. A very fitting name by the way!!!
See you shortly!!

Adam came over and fertilized and seeded our yard with grass, because he has a new riding lawn mower and can`t wait to start keeping his and our lawns cut, He wanted to make sure there was plenty of grass coming up. I would have had a picture of this from my window but he was flying past the window so fast i could`nt quite catch him. He does things fast like that all the time.
We had a little rain a few days ago (which turned to SNOW) and when we woke up the next morning, the grass had magically turned green........FINALLY!
Northeastern MN is finally , slowly , understanding that spring is here, my fingers are crossed !

Now, dealing with messy spring is sometimes even worse, we had so much snow this year, everything is water and mud, quite dreary, but, we must get through this before the dry land and warm sunshine arrives.
Skip and i have spent the winter doing his trucks, he and flynn spending days in the garage, then Skip and i painting.
Anyway, hope all of you are doing fantastic...........i`ll be back soon!

The poor pooch, i think he thought he was going to a fancy spa the way he took off with the vet assistant, wagging his tail and dragging her down the hallway, eager to slip into an imaginary bubble bath i suppose. Dreams of a pedicure and massage dancing in his head.
What a shock it must have been when he woke up.
He is much perkier today, but, has an almost shocked look on his face everytime he checks himself, he looks at me as if waiting for me to tell him where they are? So, all i could do was promise not to take a picture and humiliate him further.
The Vet and his assistants enjoyed him during his short stay, they called him The Happy Boy, even when he woke up, he was happy. Of course, he had`nt realized parts were missing then. But, that`s flynn, deliriously happy, this won`t keep him down for long. And even though he is`nt the *man* he used to be, we still love him.

I have washed the kitchen and bathroom floors, straightened up the living room, am currently washing a load of clothes, woken up Flynn a bazillion times, fed and watered the cat, read some in my book, made half a pot of coffee, which i must say, is quite good this morning, what else to do?
Flynn refused to go to bed tonight with his master , so he has been waking up to see what i am doing, he is so nosey. With his humping obcession, i was a little uneasy when he`d come to check on me in the kitchen. I wash my floors on my hands and knees, get my drift? One eye on the floor, one on him, but, i am proud to say, he was a gentleman for a change. I suppose it is my reminding him that NEXT FRIDAY is the big day. He`s trying to be on his best behavior incase i change my mind, which of course, i won`t. This is set in stone.
Remember when i said i was going to get Flynn some toys? Well, i forgot but i did get something for him that he HATES. Some people are against these little miracle workers, and i am not thrilled with putting him through this, but, we live in town, and he needs to learn manners, which he has bucked us on every issue. So, we broke down and bought a shock collor. The dump guy puts on heavy gloves before he gives Flynn a treat, children shudder in fear of him jumping on them, visitors rarely leave without droplets of blood streaming down their hands from scratches, coats ripped when being jumped on, the cab of the truck torn apart when left alone , the neighbors suggesting a shock collor for his barking, i`m surprised they did`nt take up a neighborhood donation. The list is endless. So, all of that is changing, and it has changed in 3 short days. He has received about 3 shocks, but now all we have to do is give him a warning beep, and he settles right down. I imagine very soon, we won`t even have to give him the warning. It`s amazing. I`m thinking people may actually get to pet him without giving blood or almost knocked over. Flynn thinks everyone loves him as much as he loves them. NOT
That blueberry crisp is calling my name..........i`m trying to resist.
Well, it is 3:45, some people start their day this early so, i might as well too.
I think i`ll clean the fridge..........

He`s a humper. He humps my pillows, blankets, his dog bed (which we had to take away because of holes made during rough humping activity) once the cat, rugs, and last but not least, ME. So soon, the party is over soon big boy. It`s odd, his brother Rex, does`nt hump anything, i don`t know why it was all given to flynn, if it were`nt for his green eyes and red hair, i`d think he had alot of Italian in him.
I am stocking up on toys tomarrow, he`ll need something to entertain him with all that spare time he`ll have on his , ummmm paws. I suppose it will be like quitting smoking ......hard to give up, the urge will still be there at first but, but........it will wane......surely it will.
that`s my hope.
Enjoy them while you have them Flynn.................

The water has been a challenge, a couple of nights ago, i caught it in mid freeze, i turned it on in the kitchen sink, which is where the problem has always been and it just trickeled for a few seconds, and just as i was uttering some very dangersous words. it began gushing, whew, close one.
Today i was not so lucky, both cold and hot froze, so skip had to do a little blow torching, after about 20 minutes, we had water, whew.
I am tired of winter, i want warm sun, green grass, and slipperless feet.
