Washing Windows and Other Thoughts
I thought I would show you the lighting that I have around my house.
I really like the lights I got to pick out when we built the house. I am not
a decorator, at all. I don't like it, I can't pick paint and so when the builder
told me to go down and pick out lights for the whole house I about died.
But now 10 years later, I really like them as I have spent hours on
decorating blogs now. So this is some of the outside lights. I will show you
the other kind as I make my way around the house.
This is the light in my bathroom. I really love it and
I wonder why I didn't put it somewhere where people could see
it. The more I look at it the more I like it.
Since I was in the bathroom with my camera, I thought
you might like to see my bathroom. Today I noticed how
pretty it is and how big that bathtub is. The only people
who use it is my grand kids who think it is a" fun pool".
When we built I of course did not want to live here and I
was thinking of resale, not living here forever. My husband
promised that all I had to do was live here three years.(Its been ten.)
I really did not settle down here until three years ago.
Now I would hate to leave.
This is Hobo. She is my cat. She has walked into our hearts.
She is like this where ever I am in the house. If I am in my office,
she is outside the door or if I am folding clothes she is outside the window.
She is the best Mom so even my husband who was totally against Hobo has
decided she can stay and even the other cats are getting better.
The chickens do the same thing. They were outside in
the yard while I was washing windows. I had to finally
put them back in the pen because I would get the patio
all sprayed off and they would get in the flowerbed and
throw the damp earth up on the porch.
When I started to clean the bathroom, it was like trying to clean
Shelob's lair. I knew that some spiders had been trying to live
in the bathroom, but I didn't know they meant permanent residence.
I could see these spots on the ceiling and I thought, " Oh, no, is that
mold?" I got up on the ladder and it was tiny little spiders living on the ceiling.
No more, I washed the ceiling.
Well, time to get back to work. My daughter and niece went to give blood today.
My daughter almost passed out twice so they kept her there. They finally came
dragging themselves in the door. My son Elliot, brings pizza home from work and
puts it in the freezer and he looked at them and fixed them something to eat.
I put off vacuuming while they were eating.
Now I can get back at it.
