Goodness gracious I can not get it together at all….I don’t know if it’s the lack of nice weather and sun shine or that I just am not feeling good yet…possibly a combination of all – ya think??? I do.
I need a swift boot to get myself motivated and even at that my heart isn’t into it.
Today was (and still is) a horrible day – layed down for a couple hours and basically pouted…not feeling sorry for myself mind you – basically not knowing what is wrong!
During the week I put flowers in my door box….DID NOT LIKE IT – didn’t like the Red Tulips with the Burgundy Red door so found some White Poppies on Friday and added them instead…NOW IT LOOKS LIKE THERE ARE 3 FRIED EGGS IN THERE. What am I doing wrong!!! I hate it.
Then…it was time to put out my Geraniums (or something Spring anyway) so 3 of them went in the long basket I bought in PA…wasn’t happy wherever I put it – awful on the mantle – didn’t fit on top of the pantry.
So put on two different table covers and placed it in the center…nope, so it ended up at an angle on one end just like the trusty ole trencher that usually sits there…again, I can’t get this right either.
Had them like this first…added a few sprigs of Lavender but took them out.
Then changed the cloth and kept the basket centered…that wasn’t working either.
So here’s how it ended up…nothing much different than the trencher (just in a basket). BORING!!!
But something good did happen!
When I was grocery shopping on Thursday last week I saw a lady in the store who looked very much like someone I had worked with many, many years ago so I quietly called out her name and sure enough it was her!
She moved away several years ago but moved back in Nov. – we said we’d get together soon…she called early last week and we set up that she would come over for lunch on Thursday…we had a fantastic reunion and now she’ll be able to join all of the others of our group that gets together every 6-8 weeks or so for lunch…more the merrier!
When I was cleaning over the weekend I was dusting some pictures and realized that I never showed you ‘the other side’ to my decorating likes. I’m a lover of modern ‘folk art’ and the un-mentioned meaning of what you are looking at.
Several years ago when on one of the cruises we took we got hooked on the afternoon ‘art auctions’ – many, many pieces of art later here are 4 that we came home with (the rest of the pieces are packed away in the closet) but these needed to stay out. Three of them are on the walls in the upstairs hallway – and one is in the downstairs bath.
Very modern for this gal but if I could own 2 or 3 homes they would all be very different.
I love this artist and if I had more room would have more of her work. She’s PAULA MCARDLE.
This is the one in the bathroom…colors work for this room.
It’s called ‘COURTING’
Thanks for visiting me on this Palm Sunday (and after).
I wish you all a wonderful Easter.
