Normally our Saturdays are all about bathroom cleaning and naps. But this past Saturday took on a life of its own after James informed me that he really wished I would switch the living room and dining room.
This week I am locked away working on my next book. It turns out that I write better when I don’t have to do 8 loads of laundry a day or grade a dozen math papers.
Well friends, Tuesday I had one of those once in a lifetime moments. I went to lunch with my daughter and when we arrived back home there were 4 big boxes waiting for me.
Last Saturday my girls decided to go out for some thrift store shopping, so I was left alone with the 4 younger boys. It was either going to turn into a Lego-fest or I could use their future man muscles for the greater good.
I’ve been in a crafty mood lately. It must be the cold weather mixed with my lack of time for getting whole rooms remodeled. But I felt a need to get my craft on.
Being a true American, I overate on Thanksgiving. I made some eating decisions before the big day arrived so I wouldn’t lose sight of the fact that I am on a diet and regret my choices.
I felt like a change this year….not the same old holiday decor that I have been using for years. And since none of my old stuff has any real sentimental value, I decided to try some new things….just for fun!
I’ve been wanting to show you a few of the things I got when my parents moved a couple of weeks ago. Since they were downsizing I got to bring home some things that I love.
I am so, so, so glad you stopped by for my tour da casa. Life here in the Texas Hill Country is sweet and simple. Nothing fancy, but we love every bit of it!
We’ve been sprucing up the place for the past couple of weeks. Painting, dusting and furniture rearranging has everything feeling spiffy.
There’s nothing new but it still feels fresh.
