I love having company. I really, really do! It's wonderful to see them come and as I've gotten older, it's kinda wonderful to see them go. I am one of those "gotta have everything just right" types that drive husbands nuts.
Well, good for you! I've had three wonderful husbands and there is not one of the three that I didn't drive crazy when I know company is coming.
I want to be "kick back" but I'm not.
I'm a blasted fuss budget!
This is Lucy, our neighbors cat. She loves our front porch. Unexpected company!
She always shows up unannounced.
We love her visits.
I zoom through the house checking bathrooms, fluffing pillows, checking counter tops..running the vacuum quickly through all the rooms and especially the kitchen because I have foolishly put in a black rug with back and white check border that is NOT easy to keep clean and after just fixing JUST a sandwich, the rug has crumbs..on it and they show! There are always tiny leaves on it from Mele' running in and out.
Why am I showing you the front porch...again?
I have NO idea except that...
.....it's another area I rush around making sure it's up to snuff. I dust the front door..the top of the mailbox, give the chair cushions a good whack.
I vacuum the porch rug. If there is cobwebs, down they come.
You can drop in any old time. No problem and you are so welcome.
However, I do hope you don't mind being met at the door with me in my pj's. :)
If I don't get dressed immediately when I get up...I lounge around until noon..
Then I think, "Well, we aren't expecting anyone, so.." and the doorbell rings!
Here's the thing. If I kept everything up to snuff all the time and didn't let things get away from me there wouldn't be a problem.
Right now I'm using my bum knee as an excuse.
I didn't mention it yet, but, Howard jumps right in to help me. I need to check and see if that man has wings. I'm beginning to suspect!
I hope your St. Patrick's Day was nice. Ours was quiet.
Sunday was our beer and brisket day. Everyone works.
No, no..I don't drink beer. Most of it's yuk..but my son does.
Howard? HEAVEN'S no!
