The new Phonebooks here, the new phonebooks here!!!!
No, not really
Ok it’s a line from the movie
“ The JERK”
remember how excited Steve Martin was when the phone book arrived???
I think he originated the Happy dance!!!
or was that the Egyptian mummy dance???
I think of that scene every time I get
excited myself when a big parcel comes to my door.
The difference with me and Steve is that I’m not actually
in this book.
But that’s ok.
You may be surprised but there is actually a little color in this issue.
A few well chosen pastels to brighten and invigorate our
homes for Spring.
I want to thank all the people that preorder the magazine.
I just shipped them out and some have arrived already.
What is so versatile about a neutral color palette is how easy it is to change the look.
A few colorful pillows, some vintage plates with delicate florals and
a bouquet of field flowers.
All of a sudden you have a whole new room.
You might even pull out something from your closet to hang from a door.
I know I always need to have my angel wings in easy reach.
Last month we had fun rearranging the Living Room.
Nothing too special but just a few things moved around.
Unfortunately most of the pictures had something Christmas in it…..
so I couldn’t show you that.
The light in the living room is so wonderful and we spent as much time in there as we could.
Well then came the painting project in the family room.
As much as I thought we could keep things out of there some of the over flow went in my
new clean room.
What was only going to be a painting job turned into more.
George decided to add more trim to the baseboard.
Trim that we were suppose to put in 20yrs ago. Didn’t seem that important
after a couple of years went by…..and even less as time went on.
You know how that goes …..you just find more pressing things to work on.
Oh yes the list is long and keeps growing.
I really wanted to add molding to the ceiling but the angles are so strange
that it makes it impossible. Not impossible, but more difficult then we’re willing to tackle.
We did manage to clear off some room at the breakfast table (that we hardly ever use for breakfast)
for our Valentines Day dinner.
We had a lovely meal of baked flounder and shrimp.
Turns out I didn’t devein the shrimp the
correct way. I thought you just removed it from the inside.
Guess who ate them all!!!!!
What’s a little poo when the whole ocean is …..well you know.
Now you probably think I’m gross.
I know I’m being silly and all this is just
FLUFF!!!! after all.
The icing on the cake of life so to speak. I never write about really important subjects.
Politics, religion, news, etc. etc.
though I often want to.
I’d be a bad citizen of the world if I didn’t take the time to mention
the people of North Africa and the uprising in these nations.
They have shown such courage in the face of such brutal dictatorship.
I pray that they get the Democracy that they so long for and deserve.
We in all the free nations should never take for granted what we have
and what others before us have fought and worked so hard for.
I Hope That You Treat Each Day as a GIFT!
