No decor and what I'm reading this week

Well howdy do, Friday.  Nice to see ya.

As usual, we have company coming tomorrow and a house to clean today.  Oy.  What's worse is since I finished up the remodel last year just in time for fall decorating, I realize that I don't have much in the way of every day decor for the armoire.  So I have to find some stuff to throw together to make things look presentable instead of stark.

But enough of my lack of accessories, lets get to...

  1. Great links as usual. It's weird but this morning, for some reason, I was thinking about those little birds we lost in the Derecho and lo and behold on this page there is a link to your article named The No Power Diet. I clicked on it and sure enough it mentions the birds. It's like the mind sometimes has a way of reminding you about little things much in the same way a TV show will show a scene from a previous episode to remind you about something it is going to reveal further. Weird huh?

  2. I just walked my butt in from a 12-hour day and all I can think about is off with my bra and reading my All You magazine and not discerning anything else around me for a few hours. Tomorrow I have to do some perusing through the stores for some furniture items for my uncle who is moving into his new digs next week. This place is awesome and I'm impressed with the staff, the interactions with my uncle, the whole nine yards. Mom gave me some dimensions to work with so I'll be looking like a goof at stores whipping out my neon green tape measure to see what's up to par for the Cool Cat's new place. Beyond that, I see (hopefully) a long, lovely nap for myself at some point. Getting up every day at 4am has been very difficult to adjust to, but it will change to 4:30 or so within the next few weeks, and that will help. I'm like a seven year old with a bedtime now. LOL

    1. You enjoy your evening and let the twins fly. You deserve it! Have fun shopping for uncle's new digs! 4am!? You're a better woman than I am!
