This is the kind of person I want to be, the kind who has flower arrangements on the patio, like I just stopped there after some gardening. In my Cath Kidston gloves. In that pretty way think other people live their lives.
You know, they say , gee my life seems like chaos, and then you peel back that layer of chaos and find a well ordered life. Sadly, when you peel back the layer of chaos around here, there's just more chaos. I'm not a very good housekeeper. But I really admire those who are. I just don't have it in me. These roses are part of a bunch I got from Alex yesterday. I pulled up at her house to drop off some things I'd sewn for her and she was out front picking roses. She has a beautiful rose garden, and just a lovely home and yard. It's very peaceful to be there.
This weekend we're treating ourselves to a yard clean up. Bret works long hours and I have been busy and we've let the yard go wild. So come Saturday evening, my yard will be free of weeds. We're not good at keeping up, but we'll give it a try.
So Saturday, I will be that person, at least for an evening!
If you want to see something funny, go over to The Quilt Show blog and watch Alex's Lightbulb birthday video on the daily blog. You don't need to belong to watch it, it's hilarious. Part two is here.
