Monday Randomness: At Its Best

Friday at lunch time my husband and I went to the plant nursery to pick up flowers and more mushroom compost.

I mentioned to him how I thought it was weird how bad the mushroom compost smells.

Mushrooms don’t smell bad so why does compost made from mushrooms smell?

He said you know what compost is made out of right?

Then I read the “ingredients” and gagged a little.

Unfortunately, the compost sat in my car of the rest of the day.

It seems every fiber in my car absorbed the smell while the car sat in the parking lot of my work.

The ride home was a little rough.

Saturday morning started bright and early with a meeting with a new decorating client.

She simply needed help with some paint colors, and I was happy to oblige.

After the meeting I stopped to get my oil changed.

I should have warned the guys at Grease Monkey that my car still smelled like a barnyard.

Instead I just let them experience the barnyard essence on their own.

I am sure they thought I must have just hauled a cow and a bunch of chickens.

Or that I lived in my car.

Seriously, it smelled terrible.

Saturday afternoon, we finished up some flower beds.

And then I started on the new TV cabinet.

I got it all sanded, and stained.

Just need a top coat and  possibly a few touch ups.

Looks pretty good if I don’t say so myself.

Then  I came inside and took a bunch of Advil.

Because every time I sat down my body seized up, and I could not move.

I am only 28.

This does not bode well for my future.

I took a look in the mirror after dinner and was pleased that I didn’t have any real sunburn from working outside all afternoon.

Until I turned around.

Apparently the shirt I was wearing was a little short.

I had only had sunburn on my “lower back.”

Which means my “lower back” was exposed for most of the afternoon while I worked on the TV cabinet.

I am thinking I should write all my neighbors sorry notes for having to look at my exposed posterior all afternoon.

Sunday, we went to church, had tacos for lunch and then took a 3 hour nap.

Then one of my stepsons remembered he needed to make a still for school as a science experiment.

Watching all of the Moonshiners episodes definitely came in handy.

And I am glad to know that the Greenville County School system is teaching kids how to properly make stills.

Wouldn’t want minors drinking subpar homemade alcohol.

Happy Monday!

  1. Sounds like a fun weekend, Rene’! Certainly an adventurous one. Mushroom compost may smell like…well, compost…but it is yummy addition to the garden. I look forward to seeing your TV stand project.

    Your son’s project would make Tickle proud! :)
