frank interlude

the kitty has really taken to the computer chair my friend left when he moved.  sometimes i dont have the heart to move frank when i need to have internets time.. and i end up awkwardly crouching over the keyboard for a few minutes and then remember, hes a damn cat.  he can curl up anywhere else in the house for the rest of his 22.5 hour daily sleep.

future daybed

one of my good friends recently moved from maine to washington dc for work and well.. to finally live with his wife of 8 months.  he left some random stuff with me like his old bed frame, some oddly cut slats, random dishes, bedding, spices, beans and rice, and lamps.  cos apparently asians love lamps.  thats a thing.  anyway, the bed frame and board were my focus.  and i had my parents bring my circular saw by.  a useful tool that ...had no place in my old apartment.  
cos i'm borderline obsessive, id sketched out my plans for the materials and ... the end result is about half way there

fridge update

in the gloaming, my fridge appears normal.  cluttered as all hell, and the lumpy wall behind is very apparent.  but its a fridge.  it came with the house.  it works.  but dear god is it ugly.

liz's laundry

not that i feel the need to make excuses or justify my absense, but its been a week since anything posted.  live post or pre-scheduled.  i'm having problems allocating time for things as i'm working mornings at the credit firm still, along with going to electrician school in the afternoons and weekend shifts at home depot.  but never fear.  i'm still wearing clothes.

and let me tell you, wearing a pink striped dress with the home depot orange apron gets some attention.  aaand mostly the good kind.
also, some insane humidity a couple weeks ago led to awesome but slightly frizzy hair.  ive cut the front bits since then so it looks less like an asymmetric bob and more like a regular boring haircut.  im gradually getting used to it.  but hair grows.  i'll do better next time.

gardening galore

in case you were wondering, though it took me the entire summer, i did finally find the matching color spray paint to finish my pair of adirondack chairs!
i also stumbled upon a end-of-summer perennials sale at a nursery, and proceeded to spend more than a few dollars on plants.  the fluffy grey things are "silver mound" wormwood.

cemetery dq sunset

one gorgeous august evening while debating if i should get some ice cream or get some exercise... i remembered both was an option!  i live .8 miles from a dairy queen.  DANGEROUS.  i drove a couple times when it was 94 degrees.  but i decided the sun was just setting, the temperature was a balmy 70 and humidity was barely noticeable.

organization in rainbow order

after years of storing my nail polish in bins where i couldnt find any particular color on the first try, i gave in and bought a nail polish holder.  this one to be exact.  i then promptly sat it on the floor in the hallway between my bedroom and the bathroom for about 3 months.  i kept thinking i would finish the dungeon-like wall of horror, but ADD and other such things have caught up with me, and it is still half plastered and about 30% complete.  i also need to borrow a shopvac so i stop taking years off the life of my dyson.  so i primed the unfinished wall in the hallway, drilled some holes, and after much pomp and circumstance, finally hung up the rack.

vege "art"

i was playing in picasa filters the other day and realized they have quite a few pre-made instagram/photoshop-esque functions.  here are some things i might print once i have a fully functioning kitchen

some decor updates

frank much prefers precariously lying on a futon covered with a heavy quilt.  that way he can sink his claws into that many more layers of fabric with the potential for mass destruction.  plus then the yellow/black/white/dark brown theme i appear to be going for matches all the better.
