I spent my morning doing something I had not planned. I was sitting at the computer when I heard lots of crashing and banging. At first I thought the cat had pulled something over but I couldn't imagine what she could pull over that would just keep going and going and going. I got up and went toward the noise...my bedroom. A bracket had broken and the shelf that runs the entire width of the room had fallen. It had fallen on one end and was acting as a slide for everything from the other end. lol Fortunately only two things were broken. One didn't matter. It was only a jar that I had painted. The other was a really sweet and beautiful angel that my son had given me for Christmas one year. I had it hanging from a little hook beneath the shelf. I may be able to glue her back together.
I had other important things which were very fragile (probably why they were up there) and none of them were broken. I am grateful.
What a mess, though! Now just tell me this...why did I have a plastic flower pot full of dry dirt in it? Can you answer that for me? That made the biggest mess of all!
A couple of days ago I made the comment that I needed to dust that shelf. Well, it certainly was easier to dust since it was lying on the floor. :D I cleaned it and we put it back up after Tim fixed the brackets (he reinforced both of them while he was at it) and I cleaned each thing before putting it back up. It looks much better now. Things look a bit more arranged now and less just thrown on the shelf. (Probably because that is the case lol).
I've enjoyed your comments on inspiration. It's fun to hear how others draw inspiration...and interesting how that in itself can be inspirational.
Keep Cindi, from Cindi's Sewing, in your thoughts. I spoke to her son earlier and I think she is in surgery as I'm typing this. She was pretty nervous about the surgery so I'm sure she could use your good thoughts, wishes and prayers.
I was just informed that I'll be picking Caleb up from work in a bit so I'd better get ready. I'm still in my scrubs (tim's old scrubs I wear as pjs lol). Horrible I know! Unusual, too...seemed like everytime I wanted to take a shower someone else wanted in and then the shelf....then the dishwasher...then waiting for hot water...then.....then...ok...I'd better get in the shower now. See ya.
