Every day I intend to do a post..just to let my blogger friends know I'm here..but every day I end up putting it off. If I knew the reason why, I would say. I don't.
I'm not ill.
I'm not really depressed.. perhaps a bit.
The week has not been bad..so.. :) I'm back.
I did accomplish a couple of things this past week that I have had on my "To do" list for a long time.
(I don't really have a list.. well..except in my head.)
The little iron front fence has been removed and the rust chipped, sanded and repainted by a professional painter, and put back in place..
...and my little red bench has been repainted by the same man that did the fence and in the same paint as the house trim and placed away from the lawn sprinklers at the far corner of the garage that needed some interest. This works for me.
I saw this gorgeous Dragon Fly sitting on one of the tippy top branches of our peach tree and thought he was worth capturing. Isn't he/she(?) just beautiful. Matches my little red bench to a T! :)
Front porch cleaned, power hosed, stripped of overgrown plants and dead ones, fountain scrubbed clean and adjusted and all ready for the season. EVERYTHING had to come off the porch and it was knee deep in old dead plants and pots and a foot high in clippings and gunk!
Yep..came out of my doldrums and got busy and accomplished something!
I love this little flower box on our bedroom window. The button mums have finally bloomed..and I'm loving it!
I LOVE taking care of a home..maintaining it..homemaking to me is a constant thing. I am a closet cleaner too. I confess. I love to clean and see things sparkle. I have never seen homemaking as a chore but as a hobby that takes some skill. It's been a lifetime of learning..and something I never tire of.
Just a fact. :)
If you hate housework...that's okay. No two people enjoy the same thing. To me, homemaking does not stop at the front door. It's inside and out. It's a full time job and I never liked working outside our home. Many of my friends prefer it..I never did.
Do you still love me? :):)
