Wanted to do a quick post just to let you know what I’ve been up to.
Let’s just say I may be
getting a Better Homes and Garden Housekeeping award!
maybe a Housekeeping Merit Badge or two.
but did I ever tell you when I was a young girl that I was obsessed with getting my hands of every girl scout merit badge
(I must have been more competitive back then)
I have cleaned every darn part of this house….and I’ll be honest I NEVER do that.
I’m a fair weather housekeeper.
A little here, little there.,,
seems to get us thru most of the time.
I think I may have started to breed a whole new breed of spiders.
I try not to suck them up in the vacuum cleaner.
I take the time to pick them up and throw them outside.
Now the ones that make it hard on me and hide under the furniture.
Well, sorry you get sucked up!
gosh I feel guilty tell you that
....and yes I know it's just a spider!
I have even been without computer for a few days …..
In pursuit of the perfectly clean home.
Now that’s dedication I tell ya!!!!
I’ve missed you all!
Once I could see above the boxes of plastic bins and cardboard boxes it wasn’t that bad.
and yes I think there were times I was channeling my
Your organizing tips sure kept going thru my head the whole time.
A big THANK YOU!
Some major things had to get accomplished!
like jacking up our mudroom so it wouldn’t fall off the footings( I guess that's important)
and installing new flooring in the downstairs bath.
None of which I did, but I had to wait to clean and paint in some cases.
thank you George
The garden has been cleaned up, cut back and mulched,
and even though we still want to redo the whole garden next yr it’s looking better then it has in a long time.
In this case less is more.
Now you maybe wondering what all this has to do with the photos I’m showing?
It has nothing to do with it :)
Just realized I never showed you some of the little things I bought at Brimfield back in September.
I have more just didn’t photograph it all.
Now, I am so excited to welcome my niece to our home who will be visiting us from Switzerland.
It’s been so long since we’ve seen each other. I know the week will go by too fast, but we
plan of spending every precious moment together getting reacquainted.
I have been waiting for this time to come for so many months (as some of you know)
and it’s finally going to happen tomorrow!!!
