Hela, heba, helloa

This dieting thing (and my scale is flirting with -27, thank you very much) is upping my need for more crafts, and the license plate table on our front porch had seen better days. This morning I overheard neighbor Chris call it a tetanus shot waiting to happen. Ouch. Of course, I only do crafts that can be completed within 20 minutes (hence the term, “stand up crafts”) as I am not very patient, or particularly skilled, and always seem to be in need of instant gratification (see dieting thing above). I picked up an Ikea Lack table for $7.00, pondered it for about 3 minutes (thank you Beatles) and spent the other 4 minutes looking for the orange and green paint. My only regret is that I didn’t paint the rest of the chorus* along the edge instead of the squiggle lines. Then again, the internet can’t really seem to agree on what exactly the chorus is, so perhaps the squiggly line was the wise choice after all.

*Hela, heba, helloa. (Hela.) Hela, heba, helloa. Hela, heba, helloa. Hela, heba, helloa. Hela, heba, helloa. Hela, heba, helloa.

    Dear Kim:
    I was reading this blog post at the exact moment I turned 60. I think it’s a good omen. Hello!
