I'm bummed out! Recently we discovered the
awful, discouraging, aggravating, truth about a nagging suspicion we had: The Old Sweetwater Barn has a foundation, but no footers. Zero. None. Zip. Short of having a pro jack the entire estimated 100 year old barn carcass up off its 6" thick gravel-concrete foundation and pour footers and then form and pour new foundation, we cannot build onto the old barn as planned. *sigh* For a couple of days we moped. Then I was inspired by a blog where a family built a starter home for nearly nothing. It got me thinking of new ideas. I swear I could hear Desi Arnaz saying to me in his cute Cuban accent, "Lucy.....what are you thinkin'?" Desi, you'll just have to wait and see. What do you do when a dream has been dashed? In the meantime, I'm going to type all my ideas on my "snazzy" typewriter. Just wait until Desi...er....my honey reads it! Photo 1 is a davenport sofa from Heywood and Wakefield Furniture which would have been at home with Lucy and Desi! Oh yeah, I got an award recently from...I can't remember....I'm such a noodle-head sometimes. In fact, a couple of other dear sweeties sent me awards and I forgot those too. I'm not ungrateful, just NOODLE-headed and BUMMED! *wink* Someone help me! Show me how to make a separate page for awards after I mention them in a post, k?
