DIY plant ladder

So, I got this off Pinterest, 

It was such a good idea to centrally locate lots of smaller plants.


I’m sure I will move some around as needed or to change up the look. But I really like it and am pleased with how well B made it and without a lot of fuss.

Here’s the other side of my office area


The Bob Dylan poster for you fans was the original from one of his albums and done by the famous artist, Milton Glasser.

Here’s one on Etsy


You can still find this album at thrift stores or LP stores. It’s fairly iconic of the era.

Then there’s the Woodstock Life magazines and our ticket .


Then the Star Trek poster is one of my favorite things ever. I found this one at a yard sale many years ago. I’m sure you could find one on eBay if you looked.

Then to the far right is my Heywood Wakefield wishbone table that I use as my desk. I love the birch wood.

My daughter and I had a fun romp to Auburn and went to Target, and then over to Michaels. I got new pinking shears to cut towel rags up.  The lady over at Down to Earth recommended pinking shears to cut rags and then you don’t need to hem. I’ll try it on my linen first and then some old bathroom towels.

Dinner is leftover cheese enchiladas, salad, and some Niman hot dogs that are from their pigs that are raised humanely over on the coast. I think Niman Ranch is over near Point Reyes. I had one the other day for lunch and it was mighty good. They are not cheap, if I’m going to eat meat, I want to eat the best quality and raised humanely as possible.  I don’t don’t this 100% of the time, but when I can I do.

Tomorrow is my oncology appointment. Since I had my labs over 3 weeks ago, it’s really just about touching base with him. He was out sick for my regularly scheduled appt. So this is the re -appt.

I’ll probably ask for labs in 3 weeks since that’ll put me at 7 weeks.  And then see him again in July probably.

All is good right now.

simple Sunday

We’re back in cooler weather….geez Louise…. Is it Spring?? I’ll be summer without a spring.

I booked a 2-night camping trip for B and my daughter at Bodega Bay. It’s a really nice campground on the beach. Only one of a handful really on the whole California coast.  There are limited spots plus no hookups but you still get tons of people in their RV’s.


Still, it is one of our favorite places. I opted not to go so I get to be home on doggie stuff, chicken stuff, cat stuff and whatever.

Today was a gym day and then I came straight home as I had shopped yesterday for the camping food. Then I vacuumed, cleaned up the kitchen folded some laundry. I still have bed sheets to get out of the dryer and make the bed.  We only have the one set of organic sheets now so it’s wash and dry and make the bed. I actually really like having only one set. It just seems easier somehow.

There are 2 zones this week. The living room and the entry. That’s because May 1st is Tuesday and that starts another zone. Both of those zones are fairly easy for me and don’t take a lot of time.

Then B did build my plant ladder and it came out perfect. Today I’m painting it white. The board behind it is just to hold it out from the wall while I paint.


It will pushed back against the wall. I’m pretty happy with it so far.

Dinner will be some burgers I have left over from yesterday and coleslaw.
