Tag, You're It!

Okay, Rabbitch, you got me. (I hate the whole meme scene, but seein's that it's you. . .)

“THE RULES:Each player of this game starts with the ‘6 weird things about you.’ People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says ‘you are tagged’ in their comments and tell them to read your blog.”

1) I can spend hours browsing at the Dollar Tree or in any yarn store, but any other kind of store, it's "get in, get it, get out."

2) Clutter at work drives me nuts. Clutter at home is normal.

3) I currently own three pairs of sneakers and I sometimes wear all three of them on the same day (and sometimes two unmatched ones at the same time--see previous blog entries).

4) I clean the shower after my shower. Yes, exactly what you are thinking.

5) I do not like memes and seldom read them, but respond every time I am tagged.

6) My idea of a Great Vacation is staying home and Doing Nothing.

Steph, Hockeymom , Mariella, Romi, Ryan, and Farm-witch, you are next!

And Speaking of Vacations: Mine has been incredibly noisy. There has been a guy in my bathrooms and/or kitchen half of the time, mostly beating things into submission and using a nailgun (so far). Tomorrow, the tile laying starts.

Here's the old floor, after we moved everything we could, vacuumed (the Other Half) and mopped (me).

(The dishwasher's blue because it still has its protective shipping wrap. That comes off soon.)

The next step, after removing the Major appliances, was the application of 1/4" plywood "underlayment. For this, you need a nail gun.

Note that when the stove was moved, 10+ years' accumulation of gunk was exposed. Say it with me: "ewwww"

All of my kitchen stuff is now stowed temporarily (until Friday) in the living room.

Yes, the unplugged stove (we are living on reheated in the microwave leftovers, of which there are plenty).

The fridge is plugged in.

The cat pan, cat dishes, table and chairs are all sharing space with sofas and such.

And now a word from our sponsor:

I do not know where I bought this stuff, but I'm going to want more when the bottle runs dry!

A squirt of this and a sponge removed stuff that Top Job, Mr. Clean, and Formula 409 couldn't touch with a scrubby thing and 10 minutes' elbow grease.

What a terrific product!

(Home Depot, I think. In the paint aisle, maybe?)

Hey, I finished something!

It's a scarf. With tassels.

And bells.

Obligatory mirror shot says it all. That's wrapped a couple of times and still hits the waist.

It's a present, but I'm thinking about making another one, maybe not quite so festive. For me.

And on my needles, besides the Aran, is a hat. A silly bit of Hanukkah fluff.

Film soon.

And of that other thing that I thought would be finished yesterday, but isn't quite.

OMG, my entire house would fit inside your kitchen. I'd love to say something pithy or witty but I must go weep now.
Okay Ann - thanks for tagging me with my very first "meme". I played and passed it along!

Love that cheerful scarf!
Happy belated anniversary, and congrats on the new kitchen floor - looks great!
