Sweeping, mopping, dusting, rearranging, cutting the last of the peonies,
fluffing, and fluffing some more...
is this what having company does for you?
I really need to have company more often and then maybe my house would
stay reasonably clean!
... not 'pop in' company, although they are my favorite kind of company,
but they unfortunately don't reap the benefits of my crazy
cleaning and fluffing!
They just take me as I am, and as the house is
and I am thankful that they want to knock on my door again and again!
My 'pop in' company are my friends that know they will
probably walk into scraps of paper strewn everywhere, the smell of
a hot soldering iron, next to a sewing machine and piles of fabric,
and a sink full of dishes,
and yet they still come over.
p.s. the door is always open ;)
They don't see the house as you see it,
(which by the way, please excuse the blurriness of these
latest photos, the light wasn't the greatest and my camera
is temperamental to it)
I couldn't retake them because, as you may have guessed
this room did not stay like this for very long.
Between the kids and the cat, the next morning
as I headed out to work, I walked through, shook my head and
then closed my eyes.
I'm glad that I got pics of the peonies in the old crate and blue jars
while I could because Oliver thought that I provided him with a new toy
and had them shredded by the next day.
Good thing I love the booger.
p.s. that goes for the kids too!
Today I have it back in order, (mostly)
except for those pesky dishes and the never ending laundry...
wanna stop by for a visit?
If you call first, who knows what kind of projects I could get done just for you!!!
(sometimes I get crazy enough to break out the spray paint too!)
