All that

So yesterday I was strutting around like I was"all that and a bag of chips"
I summoned my inner handy woman and fixed my storm door all by myself!  I replaced the handle and the broken locking mechanism. I was almost done when the nice old fella who lives behind me came over to ask what I was doing.  When he saw he said " oh those are tricky".  Then he noticed I was just tightening the Last few screws.  He high-fived me.  
I was bragging to a friend and she told me to get over myself.  Lol Then I tackled the lamps.  I bought these new lamps at a ridiculous low price at a closing out sale but the shades were ugly.  Before pic
But when you pay $37 for a $140 lamp you can afford new shades.   Here is the new version - so much better
The rest of the weekend I puttered around with Miss Abby by my side 
All rested up for my first full week of work since the holidays.   Sigh.....


  1. I worked a full week last week not easy to get back at it. You go girl fixing your own things I think that is great! Love the lamps

  2. Way to go Kim, you're a handyman woman. There's no stopping you now. I need a drill too to fix things that breaks at the barn in my section and I'm not kidding. I bet Abbey is real proud of her Momma.
    That shade is quite an improvement. Great looking lamp.

    I hope the roads are not too slippery tomorrow. It's raining now and will freeze tomorrow.

  3. I have a feeling this week is going to be extremely long! The kids came back on Wed. after 2 days of staff development, so it felt like days off.

  4. WOW! you busy girl :) Love the lamps.Those shades are diffinately << (never spell that right)better.

    Have a great week. Give dear Abby and hug from me. :)
    Take care, Janet W

  5. Now that is about the ugliest lamp shade I've ever seen!!!
    Hugs :)

  6. Go Kim, go Kim, go Kim...Isn't it great to get something fixed that needed to be done? And yes, that is probably the ugliest lamp shade I have ever seen. LOL Your replacement is so much better. Have a good week.

  7. You go girl, you should feel full of yourself. Abby is a pretty girl and sure loves her mommy.

  8. I would be bragging too! My sister got all the handyman skills when talent was being handed jealous! I think Abby took a fabulous selfie with you photo bombing in the back! Have a good work week!

  9. Good for you fixing stuff all by yourself (and better you than me!)....WOW-love how big Abby is getting! Tammy

  10. That's my girl, a do it yourselfer!!!!!!!! Blessings Francine.

  11. Way to go!!! That is awesome, Your lamps are awesome!
    It sounds like you are off to a great start!

  12. What kind of chips?? ;o) Sorry....I'm still on my holiday binge.... You go Missy Kim! I'd try to fix things, but they don't let me play with power tools here in Nod.... Probably a good thing. Hope your first long week goes quick.... Snow Dog would love to have Miss Abby over for a play date in the snow. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
