Chores!

I kept thinking that I would finish my weekend chores (the big shebang is now 6 days away, and company begins to arrive in 4!) and be able to do something interesting to tell you about. If I had stuck to the list, it probably would have turned out that way. But, I got carried away.

We were on track, but then I decided that I was sick to death of the 1991 mauve and pink valances in the living room and dining room. So, The Mister took them down, while I ran to Tuesday Morning to find something to replace them with. And, instead of just steam cleaning the grout around the floor tile, I decided to steam the kitchen tile (counter tops) and bathroom tile.

Then, we decided to re-arrange the living room furniture for better 'flow'.

I am going to bed shortly, with the books from the bookcase stacked on the floor, the dining room table covered in miscellany, a ladder in the living room.

I also got eight quarts of strawberries cut up and ready to freeze. They weren't on the list, but they were on sale!

I knew it!!! Our visit is causing the crazies to strike.

Why oh why the valances?

Of course the strawberries...

You are so funny -- are you going to sew new valances tonight?

We are pretty much slobs, so it's nice that we have family over regularly because it does motivate me to clean the house.

Did you buy or are you sewing up new valances? Mauve was all the rage, wasn't it? Do we get to see?

G - It is a good trade off for the winter excitement!
IN - It is never crazy to get rid of pink and muave valances!
Martha - I am not going to sew the valance. I dashed to the store, rummaged through the clearance bin and picked very boring neutral valances. But! They are not pink and mauve!
Lynne - I will try to get a photo of the 'finished effect'. Chaos is still prevailing, just now...

Funny how one thing just leads to another, isn't it? LOL!
