What a productive day yesterday!!!
Summer decor is packed safely away ( albeit with some sadness on my part.) Laundry was done. Dusting occurred in places I haven’t seen since the summer decor went up. Slip covers were washed and the furniture that is now back to crisp clean white has been moved and vacuumed under.
I find it very peculiar that even though I have a strict NO EATING IN THE FAMILY ROOM policy I found lots of bits of potato chips, sucker sticks, and Popsicle sticks under there. Hmmmm…
I wasn’t even done paying off my new sectional sofa before a stray chicken nugget caused my dog to go insane trying to get it and she ripped the stuffin’ out of my BRAND NEW couch!!!
The crazy dog was pretty determined wasn’t she? I might have felt better about the whole thing if she had at least gotten the chicken nugget. But it was so far back there that she couldn’t have got it if she had ripped the entire front portion of the couch off.
Since then I put the kabosh on eating in there, but I guess no one listens to Momma.
The kids just came outside and asked why I took a picture of them, which led to a discussion of how “they ALWAYS listen to me.”
This should be fun. We took a little trip around the house to find how they always listen to me. The little spots of nail polish, my new quilt on the table destroyed by a painting mishap, the broken window, a chip taken out of my beautiful woodwork trim, the spot on the ceiling caused by a flooded bathroom … you get the picture. That hushed them right up! HA
Aaaand THAT is why Momma needs wine!
Oooopps I didn’t mean to go on a rant.
With the exception of changing out my quilts and my fall signs, I am going to live with blank walls and empty table surfaces for a week before I get the fall decor out. It just feels too good to clutter up again right now.
To reward myself for working hard yesterday I am starting this kit I bought a while back, pattern by Renee Plains.
All the hand stitching should lend itself well to wine drinking outside on the patio!
