Random Things Thursday

Here's what's been happening at our house this week.
I tried a new way to kill weeds~

Boiling water~

Works great, and I got my exercise from running up and down the steps boiling water to pour on the other weeds.

What do you do with all those chop sticks that come with Chinese takeout?  
Use them for paint stirrers! 
They are perfect for mixing paint samples, or small containers of craft paint. 
Don't know why I didn't think of them before, instead of using the handle of my paint brush.

I've been trying to identify this plant that appeared by the stepping stones in the side yard. 
I really like it, and would love for it to fill in around the stepping stones. 
Any ideas what it is?

I bought another glass bowl~ 

I bought some paint~

Color...Espresso Beans~
Here's what I'm going to paint~

Builder basic cabinet in the powder room. 
I've put this off for a lot longer than I care to admit.  
If all goes well, I'll have it finished this weekend.

On another note, I was just watching Jacques Pepin on tv, and he was asked what cooking tips he would give ~ 

He said the first thing you should do when you go in the kitchen is have a glass of wine!  
Hey, works for me. :)

Check back next post, to see how my paint project turns out.
Do you think a glass of wine would make me a better painter?
