Well these 2 weeks have been very busy and a little stressful for me, no time to do any of my MANY projects that are lined up...stacked up really for me to do...My elderly parents that live in Campbell Ca are both sick and went down to help them...its 3 hour drive from here.....I am helping a friend decorate his beach house here( he has no clue on decorating so he is leaving it mostly to me..which is fun and he has $$$ so I have big budget! ,picking paint colors, furniture, curtains..ect..its fun but that has taken alot of my time thinking and fretting over choices....
I also had 2 friends visit from out of town...and..... I always fret and worry when people come over trying to get the house all cleaned up...I have 3 dogs which shed and I work 4 days a week and I HATE to clean..So I tend to get side tracked when I am doing chores and end up going outside...I always long to go to the garden. not be indoors !!! Alot of my friends here have someone come once a week to clean....but its not in our budget so I have to do it myself....My mother loved to clean, I have cousins that say it relaxes them to clean house??? ANYONE out there like this????????!! I don't like to clean.. I have tried putting peppy music in the background that didn't work..
And I always fret when people come over that my house will not be clean enough..I think it has to do with how I was raised..my mom was an exceptional housekeeper she could do everything..cook , clean everything was perfect...and she did it effortlessly... we always had dogs and we had no dog hair anywhere and she also always had a part time job too while we were in school and she managed to do it all...we always had a hot meal on the table and breakfast in the morning............ hummmmmmm maybe I need therapy?????? anyways ...I have to stop writing cus ..this Friday tomorrow night!!!..we have 2 couples coming over to play cards.. and I have to clean....ugh!!! Its me and my swifter...wish me luck!!!!

It has been a very busy week, not only tuesday.....but the entire week.. Had a friend come stay with us for couple days and we went antiquing an I bought couple of silver items for my dresser.. a beautiful silver box lined with velvet..to keep my jewlery and a silver pen..2 pictures of bunnies.. ( I collect bunnies) which I am going to paint the frames Ithink.. what color I don't know.. I finished the lap blanket I crochet for a baby shower.. love this new yarn I never used before called "baby cloud" and I redid the sofa in my living room with new colors.. soft blues and whites..I am really happy with how it turned out.. very light and breezy....I am thinking again of changing the color on the walls of my living room again.... I get this urge sometimes for change..and once I do... well...there is usually no way to make me stop...alreadyI have been collecting tons of paint chips....trying to get inspired... was thinking of a very soft butter yellow........hummmmmm......
