Jeans Make Lousy Sponges


When I was little grown-ups liked to say, “You learn something new every day.” Here’s what I’ve learned so far today:

1. If you are going to spill a whole jar of paint water, it is better to spill it on your lap than on your laptop.

2. This is the real reason that the drawing table tilts downward.

3. It is pretty darn uncomfortable to be sitting in a pool of paint water.

4. My yard is starting to look like Jumanji again.

5. If I got out of the house more often I would probably have more interesting things to write about.

Just like my poor jeans, I’m going to go out on a limb here and bet that anyone reading this has learned something more important and/or interesting today…

…but here’s one interesting thing I just learned – Angela Nickerson of Just Go! Is having a blog party! Follow the link for details. Blog parties are a great way to meet other cool and savvy bloggers (or even klutzy ones like me)!

It's going to be a fun party!
I've always wanted to live in a safe version of Jumanji. It looks good to me!

Oh, how awful! I wouldn't want to be sitting in a pool of paint water either. Hopefully there wasn't a lot of paint in the water to color your jeans.

p.s. I'm always doing stuff like that. Lately I've been dropping paintbrushes loaded with paint. Ugh!

Thanks for the party link.

Green Girl,
Brenda - Interesting...I must've caught a good angle. Some of my yard is downright scary (but it is almost Halloween!)It just needs a little TLC.

Becky - Me too! I love vines.

Sruble - I almost dropped a loaded paintbrush on a finished painting the other day. Close one!

Kelly - It does sound like fun :)

Your yard doesn't look like Jumanji. Actually, it's inspired me to do some much needed yardwork today!
