The "Sign" and other wonders

Do you remember the "sign" that I like to borrow quotes from on my way into work?
Well, this is it...ta da! Isn't it just a lovely example of signage? No, I don't think so either, but it does come up with some thought provoking sayings from time to time.
Since hubby and I were meeting at the lumber yard I decided I'd take a picture of the sign for you and aren't you glad I did? Lately the sign hasn't said much of anything as I pass by. It just stares blankly. Not that there's nothing on it just nothing that calls out to me :).
So, now you've seen the sign.

Here's a wonder! Hubby pulling up on his motorcycle. This is one of two that he owns. And why should any man need more than one motorcycle you might ask? I think it's like a pair of shoes for us girls. Some are flat heeled and can get us places perdy darn quickly while others have high heels that we teeter precariously on and are only able to move at a snails pace. Thus for the man in my life one bike is fast for speeding while the other is for cruising and sights seeing.

And another wonder. Do you remember the little cupboard that hubby started building in January? It's now complete and ready for paint then it'll be placed in it's new home and filled with all my pink dishes. Isn't it cute? I just love it! We added a piece of egg and dart trim just below the crown to give it a little more dimension and I'm hoping to paint it over the weekend or at least get started.
I have a busy weekend ahead of me with another tea on Saturday and dinner at one of my cousin's houses on Sunday. When will I have time to paint? I don't know. All I know is I'm ready to get the vitamins off the counters as well as the mixing bowls and the tea cups and the nuts and and and...
One last wonder...we've had some incredible sunsets lately...wouldn't you agree?

My husband would love that sign! I can hear him now. Your hubby did a wonderful job on the cabinet. I can't wait to see it painted and in place. You can tell by looking that alot of time and love went in to it.

The cupboard came out so beautiful, Cori! I can't wait to see it all painted and decorated.

Love the motorcycles -- do you drive them too?

Have a happy weekend!

Hugs, Pat

My, what a well-trained hubby you have there! I love how he poses for his pictures, knowing better than to try to get out of it. He is a sweetie and so it that cabinet. I LOVE a man in a tool apron. Happy Almost the Weekend.

How lucky you are to have a Hubby that can build such great things! I love signs that have thought provoking sayings. Great sunset. Love you blog.

Hi Ladies,
I'm trying to learn how to do this bloggy thing right so I've started commenting back. Sometimes talking with me is like talking to a wall as I'm always off day dreaming somewhere :).

Pat, you asked if I rode? I get on the back of the Harley from time to time and we'll ride down the coast. It's such a beautiful drive, but by the time I get off I'm a bit stiff. Not so fun!

Deborah I thought your comment was funny! For some reason my husband likes to have his picture taken with his projects. I bought him his tool belt for Christmas because every time I'd go out to the garage he would have lost something and I'd have to find it for him. I consider it to be his handy helper and I no longer have to go on treasure hunts :). Happy me and happy him!!

I hope you all have a happy Friday! Now I'm off to the garage to paint.

xoxo Cori

The sign made me laugh. The cupboard is great and the sunset- just beautiful- thank you for that.

Cori, your cupboard is so pretty! I know you can't wait to paint it and fill it with your dishes. I would love to see it when then, too. It's was so nice of your husband to build it for you. The sunset is beautiful! So peaceful! Have a fun, but busy weekend! Many blessings!

WOW! You two have been busy. My hubby would love to have a motorcycle. We were just talking about it yesterday. We thought maybe as a second vehicle, but here in Nor cal, it would not work- no riding in pouring rain all winter.
I really like that lumber yard sign. My sentiments exactly!!!!
I can't wait to see the cupboard in your home. The weather is so nice, I am sure you can get it painted this week after work if you can't get it done this weekend!
:o) Thanks for the sunset pics. It has been lovely weather. So windy up here now though.
