|isn't it just beautiful???|
Other than that, things have been basically pretty…routine-oriented. I wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, watch tv with the fam, and then go to bed. Throughout the day I manage to get some drawing done, some journaling, and I also get to work on the site. I haven't published anything on the website yet, so no one will be able to see anything until I give the "go-ahead!"
But, saying that things are routine-oriented doesn't necessarily mean things are boring--why, just last night Cass and I went on a little late night adventure. There was this door that a neighbor up the street from our development had sitting out on their lawn against a tree with a sign that said "free". It was love at first sight, and I knew it had to come home with us…but we kept forgetting to pick it up the last two days…so, finally, on the third day (biblical, I know) Cass and I stopped for it after dinner. It was freezing outside, the door was heavy, and it stuck out of Cass's trunk by two inches. I gripped ahold of it so it wouldn't slide out the back, and my fingers began to crystalize and burn like fire from being exposed to such arctic weather conditions. We had to drive slow, because in our development we have a lot of pot holes, and if we weren't careful, the trunk could have bounced and crushed the door--or at least shattered the glass in it (glass becomes twice as breakable after being exposed to extreme drops of temperature, and constant pounding vibrations would not fail to break it.) So we slowly coasted into the development, not being able to see anything behind us, with this random door peeking out of the trunk. Oh, my is it beautiful, though! Rustic looking, a little weathered, it's absolutely perfect for something! We told no one about it except my mom, who absolutely fell in love with it also.
This morning was hilarious. My Uncle Bobby said he went out to get the paper and saw this mysterious door in the garage--with a free sign on it! He laughed so hard when I told him that belonged to Cass and I. He loved our story, and said it is a very nice door. It was this very morning my mom told me she was proud of our "good taste".
I have to be honest and say I felt this little bit of thrill when we were taking it last night. Though the sign specifically said free, it still felt strange to just be taking something off some stranger's yard…I felt like some kind of a trouble-maker…even though, no trouble was made. Every now and then the Good Lord gives me a chance to feel a little wild--without actually being wild. It's the little things that make life so exciting, my friends!
