And so it begins....

Mother Nature is playing some cruel joke on all of us Wisconsin-ites and threw out an 80 degree day yesterday.





People don't know what to do... it is warm so I can put on flip flops, but at any given moment it may switch to a blizzard and /or torrential down pour with thunder and a tulips blooming (all at the same time). Perhaps a bit more on the safe side would be flip flops with a winter jacket and boots and an umbrella in a backpack? Done. We are like pack mules and prepared for anything.


This is how I enjoyed my 80 degree day:

(work)

And then 'Garage Clean Out 2010' began after work. Shelving is going up, organization and throwing out has commenced. I am not the handiest gal on the block but thankfully my lesbian life partner, Mic, is. *swoon* She is happy with a power drill and other assorted tools.



The garage isn't this bad. But I had to take a picture of it for dramatics. This was everything moved from the back where we were working to the front.

In the front of the pile-o-crap you will see the rocker that I am going to re-cover in a funky fabric ala something like THIS rocker on my new favorite sight. My roommate and friend, Rebecca is Martha Stewart crafty. She can do ANYTHING. I think she will be able to help me.

Okay. I am at work and technically they are paying me for this... I suppose I should do some actual work. Then after that, they can pay me for doing research on bike racks and updating my facebook page.

Aren't we all???

Oh wait... you were referring to actually tools - not the kind I keep in the drawer next to my bed. ;)

Happy April Fools Day! Enjoy your 80 degree weather!

I'm so lost now. I was thinking that a power drill was a cheerleading move. What do I know? I'm just jealous that you have a car which gives you the outside temperature. Your Friend, m.

I love that rocker idea. I cannot wait to see how yours turns out. I think you ought to do it now in a "If you build it babies will come" way. :)

By the way, we had 80 degree temps yesterday and today it is cold and rainy. Bah!
