Scenario: I had my pruners in my right hand. With my left hand, I grab dried sedum flower stems and pull. Hard. Said sedum didn't come out of the ground. My hand slipped off them and into the pruning shears. I impaled my wrist right below the palm, smack dab in the middle. Can you say OUCHIE?!?
I had a puncture wound that didn't bleed right away, but then it did... and did some more! That put an end to cleaning the flower bed for the rest of the day. Boy, was it tender and sore. I'm just glad my wrist didn't slam any harder into the pruner. The first thing I thought was that I could've cut a vein!
Over the past couple weeks, I've been doing some updating around The Homestead. First up is some new lighting fixtures that Menards had on sale: Two for $19. Normally, I would've gotten light fixtures at the Habitat for Humanity store, but I don't think I could beat the price.
The glass parts are a PITA to keep clean.
Next, the BF and I (OK, he did most of it. LOL) replaced my kitchen sink faucet. I had to fiddle with my previous faucet to make sure it didn't drip, drip, drip after each use.
I didn't know there was so much hard water scale on the underside. Nasty. Who knows how old the old faucet was!
I just happened upon one that was on clearance for $100 OFF! For $59, I now have this beautiful Price Pfister stainless steel faucet:
Not only do I have a new high arch faucet, I also have a sprayer... which I didn't have before. The nice thing about it is that it comes with a lifetime warranty. Big THANK YOU goes to the BF for installation.
I now know the trepidation of making that first cut on Hardanger stitching! Yikes!! I bit the bullet and did it, though. Apparently, I did it correctly since the Earth didn't shatter or anything like that.
I finished up the stitching on Simply Elegant scissor case, and started the beading. I may just keep working on it until it's done since I'm soooo close anyway. Then I'll be back to working on JG.
Until next time,
