Good Morning, Monday!

I had a great two days off. But it's back to work today. Monday is ready for me even if I'm not ready for Monday. But I do get to do something different at work today. I get to work at the Dixie Stampede booth that is located near the train station in Dollywood. This will be fun working at Dollywood for a change of pace. It's a beautiful day and not really humid so it's going to be a great day to be outside.


Today is my Daddy's birthday. He's been gone for 18 years and I miss him dearly. He would have been 94 today. Happy birthday in heaven Daddy. I am 60 years old and I don't think I have ever called him "Dad" my whole life. he was always Daddy. This is my favorite picture of me and him. Look at my curls. I was 2 years old here and Mom had to pin the back of my panties with a diaper pin because they didn't make them small enough to stay on me.


I'm taking the plunge and figuring out a way to create my own work space for my home office desk. I keep seeing these simple DIY desks where they just use wood tops to connect over file cabinets or tables/shelves to make a desk. I will let you know how mine turns out. This is super simple and give you a work space and file drawers. I "shopped" my house last night for furniture and I found some I forgot about so stay tuned for what I do for my table.


I posted this a long time ago and never got around to doing it. But I need to just bite the bullet and by some magnets and do it. It is so easy and so fast to do that I don't know why I keep forgetting to do it.


Another idea I want to do but can't seem to remember to find a TV tray at a yard sale to make into an ironing board. One of these days I will get these done and share my results. 


My daughter is in a fall/Halloween mood today and getting decor ideas. So she has me in the mood to head over to Pinterest for ghost ideas.

Those ghosts are so cute! The table ironing board idea is pretty great! Hope your day in the new position went well!

I love the idea of file cabinets for a desk. Let me know if you do it. Happy Birthday to our Daddy! I can't believe he would be in his nineties. I can't believe we are in our sixties! It just seems like yesterday we were lying on a quilt under the old oak tree reading Archie comic books and eating penny candy from Tony's shoe shop. How we loved those old summer days. Walking to the library to check out Nancy Drew books. I really miss Daddy, that old house, and that old back yard! Good Memories!
