My friend Jane came over yesterday with her twins for lunch. I had resolved after yesterday's 10am post that I would tidy up the 'hotspot'. Here is the end result. It looks so much neater, and I've been able to move the laptop from the kitchen table. It will be so much easier to live with, cuz I won't have to tidy the computer away every time we prepare to eat. Let's see how long I can keep this neat!?!
The reality is that Jane and the girls probably wouldn't have cared in the least about the cluttered area, but it was bothering me. Screen Door had an interesting point yesterday ... It's Life! I think sometimes we set expectations of ourselves really high, and forget about all the other good things we achieve in a day. It's great to know that I'm not the only one who's not a member of the 'Sisterhood of Spotless Surfaces'. Maybe the majority aren't members?? Thank you so much for your positive (and fun) messages!
Today I'm heading into the city to one of my favourite furniture stores - Early Settler - I'm going to pick up a couple of bar stools for by the counter, much easier for long sessions of blogging and blog-hopping! I'm also going to stop by the quilt store ... I ran short of background fabric for the quilt top I'm working on ... by 6 inches! It's a legal purchase, I can't finish the top without it! I promise I won't get distracted by anything shiny!
I'll be offline for a couple of days, we're heading to the beach house for a few days, and there is no net connection there. It will be superfun to spend q-time with the family, and I'm sure to have some beachy things to share when I get back. Be good everyone! x o x
