the long-awaited flag pole

Happy Monday! I know I've left you hanging on the pantry project, but we were infected with a sudden burst of Spring and were compelled to act upon it.

I've wanted a flag pole longer than there've been fishes in the ocean. There's just something about seeing Old Glory waving in the breeze that always brings a tear to my eye and a squeeze to my heart. I can't listen to the Star Spangled Banner being sung (well) without getting all choked up.

My research assistant (and resident hole digger) found just what we wanted. We purchased a telescoping pole and flag from Uncommon USA, Inc. The poles and flags are made here in the States (as they should be!).

The Hole Digger digs! I love watching a man work.

ms. anonymous has a birthday!

It's my birthday! I thought I'd be a little self-defecating and show you some (mostly) horrible pictures of myself over the years and explain why I refer to myself as Ms. Anonymous. People simply have no idea who I am. Seriously. I'll see people I've known for years, and they'll show nary a flicker of recognition.

I'm going to blame it on my ever-changing hair and my varying degrees of fat content.  But mostly my hair. I don't want to discuss fat swings. My sparkling personality can't be the reason people forget me.

Let's start early. Looks pretty consistent so far. Except for that chipped tooth. Yeah, that helped adolescence. A lot.

andi's pantry project {part 1}


Here at Eddie's house, we call the pantry project "Andi's Panties." I thought better of using that as a title because of all of the Creepy People it would undoubtedly bring this way.

Welcome, Creepy People.

Nonetheless, that's what Phil has dubbed the pantry.

Normally, I like to wait until a project is close to being finished before I start posting about it, because I'm very aware of all the things I may have started and have never finished. But we're tearing through this like a herd of turtles, so I'm feeling confident.

You may recall the glorious state in which the pantry has existed for, oh, two-and-a-half years.

sofa table update

Hey there! Do you ever go back to old posts and think, "I didn't drink nearly enough wine before I published that?"

My original post on this sofa table made that abundantly clear. It's a really old post that some of you may not have seen, so I'm putting it out here again with some new and amazing pictures.

Well, they're new.

Phil bought this beauty back in 1980-something while I was still wearing a training bra and shooting rubber bands out of my braces.

Phil is anti-painted-wood. But he's coming around.
