Weekend Chores...

It's Saturday. I'm wishing I felt better and could report more progress, but I can't. I'm still coughing and blowing. This one has been a witch. Yes. I said that.

Still there are things that have to be done, life continues to roll on, doncha know? So...Early this a.m., ok...about noon, I finished loading up the car with the recyclables and trundled myself off to the drop-off. Fortunately, it's only about 2 blocks from my house (doesn't that sound awful? But it's really not). Once the back of the Forester was unloaded, I could continue on with errands. Stop at one shop for necessities, another for groceries, and AC Moore to use a coupon for a nice little frame for the vintage French postcard I bought when we drove to Greenberry House after the Chateau Morrisette event two weekends ago (really? Only two?).


I'd love to translate for you, but the handwriting is such that I can't get it all - I can see "flowers for me." Which is plenty for my taste, I bought it for the rose anyway!

I also picked up this:

In this new (relative term, I've been in this house more than a year!) place, I've not settled yet on a decorating theme for the bedroom, because with all that's happened since I got here, I've not fully unpacked. I know. We won't go there, but it's been a very, very busy 13 months or so. I wasn't in the mood for navy in this room, as I have it heavily in the living room. About a month ago, I had my son-in-law bring my Health Rider up from the basement (there are honking huge spiders down there when it's warm and I'm not riding it down there!) to my bedroom, and I needed a rug to put under it to spare the hardwood floors. to Wally World, where I fell in love with the runner that is the mate to this one.

Guess I've got a decorating scheme for the bedroom now (it helps that I'd already put up - about 13 months ago, thankfully - burgundy curtains at the windows!)

The Meezer isn't impressed (but please note that the quilt she's on is a rose floral one? I've had it forever...).

Well, since you gave me something to play with finally, THAT will impress me, Mommie!

And yes, I did a little knitting last night - turned the heel of the Feather & Fan Atomic 6 (STR) second sock, and another repeat of The Meezer shawl. (I'm still not loving that shawl...but I haven't frogged it yet)

Now it's off to do the vet's books and laundry, too...

I think those roses will surely cheer you up while you recover. If the Meezer can't appreciate, I can! They're beautiful -and- they'll last forever.

Meowmie says to tell your mom to GET WELL SOON. She didn't like to read that she is still feeling poorly.

Meezer, now is your chance to get some feline-decor happening, before it's too late. Make sure to make your mark. We will await the results with tuna-baited breath.

Ms. Mitz and Mr. C.

I love that rug -- really pretty!

Do you actually use your health rider? I used to have one and it killed my knees!

Surrounding yourself with roses must warm your heart. Such beauty! :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
