Getting Harder to Sneak Around

So his Lordship recently retired and is home here often.  While I am enjoying his company and assistance, sneaking to post Halloween sales was a lot more difficult this year.  I had to smuggle purchases into the house with creativity unlike past years when he was away at work.  I did score two amazing pictures at Gordmans but have tucked them away till next year in a secret place.  That way, when his Lordships ask "where did those come from?",  I can honestly say, "I've had them for ages."  I hate it when he asks "Don't we have enough Halloween stuff?".

These pictures are great - they light up and are beautiful.  I will scour thrift stores because I really want some frames I can modify.





His Lordship got off easy. I was contemplating painting something myself which, while requiring expensive canvas, paints and new brushes, would have led to a whole lot of swearing.   He should consider himself a very lucky man.

You may be thinking, stupid woman, keep your mouth shut.  However, his Lordship never reads my blog unless prompted.

    2. Smart thinking on their part, IMHO. I wish you luck with the smuggling and the retirement, lady M. The spouse retired eight years ago ... maybe that's why I went back to work shortly thereafter? ;)

  5. Love those! I need to get over to the Gordmans near here. I know how you feel, Mrs. October Boy has used the phrase "Dont we have enough Halloween stuff"? many times. Although I will catch her bringing home some after season sale stuff that she could not resist. I'm a lucky man at that time!

    1. Yes - you are a lucky man. I think soon, I shall be able to say something like that to his Lordship about fishing equipment.

  6. His Lordship found the pictures today after he got the brilliant idea to move my Halloween stuff. He was actually very gracious about them. He likes them.
