I’m working on a few more of those “TOP SECRET” Christmas commissions so I’ll just fill you in on what’s up at the White House. (For those of you who don’t know I paint under my maiden name, Senkarik.) It has been a while since the fountain in our front patio has been working. We thought the pump had gone out so off to Home Depot we went. Put it in but still no bubbling or splashing. ERRRRRRR! So we figured the outdoor electrical outlet must have gone bad. Now that is WAAYYY out of our league. We hated to call an electrician for such a minor repair so we just put up with no welcoming fountain. Then yesterday, out of the blue, Jack said, “Flip it!”
I whipped around, looked at him and said, “WHAT?”
“The breaker, flip it!”
You know what? That man is a genius. Our fountain is happily bubbling away.
Now that we’ve got it working we decided to give it an update. We saw the coolest Caribbean Blue Tumbled Glass at our favorite nursery, Cooper’s Garden Place. We thought it would be perfect in the fountain. What do you think? It is really pretty when we look out the window of our office, so cool and inviting. Miss Mockingbird, our permanent resident, has been hopping around checking the blue glass out. She likes to stand on top of the fountain and peer in the window. I guess she wants to make sure we are working!
We had some of the glass left over so we decided to dress up one of our cactus pots. The tall cactus was given to us by one of our blog readers who shares our love of cactus. It’s a night bloomer and has the most beautiful white flowers. Next time it blooms I’ll be sure to let you see.
After all that hard work it was time for a little snack. Guess who came slinking around the corner to join us? If you would like to be on our mailing list just click on the box below. Have a great day. Hugs from Texas, Mikki Senkarik
