This is the area over my kitchen sink. I've got my cupboards, my window, clock and a beautiful pottery plate. Oh and the shell display that I made the other day.
I had a valance on a tension rod hanging in the window until just last week. Tom and I were sitting in the livingroom when we heard a crash. The tension rod untentioned I guess and it crashed onto the counter. Thankfully nothing broke.
While I had the valance down, I decided to toss it into the washer.
I read the tag that I had forgotten to cut off and it said to wash on delicate.
It was destroyed.
End of valance hanging in the window.
I bought this clock years ago, but it looks fabulous (I believe) on the wall with the pottery plate. I've been looking for smaller round items to place on the opposite side of the window, but after 4 years I still haven't found anything. I guess I haven't looked that hard :)
A few days after the valance fell the clock stopped working. I figured it was the battery but when I changed that it still didn't work. Now, that's a head scratcher. WHY?
While the click is just sitting idle, I changed the time to 11:11. It is my favorite time of day afterall.
I'm going to have to take part the clock it seems and change out the whole clock mechinism. It's perfect for this spot so I'm not changing it.
Speaking of broken things...
I got up this morning and as I was shuffling my way to the bathroom I whacked my foot into the side of the door and broke my pinky toe.
I'd never done such a thing before.
It feels like the whole foot is bruised, but the poor pinky is swollen and bluish/black. A friend of mine reminded me of the R.I.C.E. treatment - Rest Ice Compress (if necessisary) Elevate. I didn't need compression, but I've done the other three. Poor piggy toe.
I had to go to the bank today, but I don't own shoes that a broken. swollen toe can fit into. Not a flip flop in sight around here. Thankfully my husband had some slip on sandles that I wore. I had to drive barefoot though, as it would have been too dangerous to have those giant shoes on my feet.
I was going to go buy some flip flops today while I was out, but we had quite a rainstorm as soon as I left the house, so I'll go do that tomorrow.
Not bad for one week!
Have a great weekend.
