It's hot here. Like, spontaneous combustion hot. I just got back from a trip to Ontario, and it was hot there too. When I get time I'll write about our awesome day at Canada's Wonderland, among other things. In the meantime, I have to share this trailer. Zombies are awesome.

I don't actually know anyone who follows anyone on Twitter. That is to say, if any of my friends are twitter-types, I don't know about it. I find the whole thing kind of creepy and perplexing. But, if I were the twitter-type, I'd totally follow this guy.

When my Grandaddy passed away last year, my Aunt sent me some pictures he had of me from over the years. I had never seen some of them before, so that was really nice. I've been scanning some of them, just so I have a digital backup. I was going to use this picture as proof that I haven't always been afraid of rodents, but it turns out that ferrets aren't rodents. So, I'll use this picture as proof that I haven't always been afraid of ferrets:

I think anyone who knows me would say that I'm not the DIY type. I'm not the type of person who sees things for sale and goes "I could make that at home!" I'm not the kind of person who wants a new deck or bathroom and just goes and builds it (theoretically, that is, I don't yet own my own deck or bathroom). I've used putty once in my life, and the only thing I've ever painted was my brother's garage.

So, it came as a surprise to me when I accepted my Aunt's offer of a DIY upholstery project. I own an antique chair that used to belong to my grandparents and hasn't been reupholstered in decades. She also has a chair that needs new fabric and thought it would be a good project for us to do together.
