Tied Up

This is what happens when a Compulsive Laundry Nerd gets stuck
 at Home with an injury.

First I limped to the store for some Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day.
 Mrs. Meyer and I speak the same language.
Then I methodically Washed, Folded, Bundled with a Ribbon and Labeled All of our Bed Linens.
I was in Laundry Nerd Heaven.
A lot of these will be going to AmVets, like these Sweet Winnie the Pooh Sheets.
But I'm keeping King Top Sheet for Myself!!!!
What is your Nerd Talent?????

Little Birds

Well, I just packed my Youngest, my Son, off to College. Waaaaa...!!! And my Little Girl is already in her Senior Year at the University. Sob...!!!
We are officially empty nesters. How did this happen so fast??
This is especially monumental for me since I gave up a busy and lucrative career to say home with the kiddos. Since then I've taught a little Pilates and worked a series of low-paying, mind-numbing retail gigs in order to have more time at home making a comfy life for the family. Was is difficult? Heck yeah! Was it worth it? YES!!!!!!
So now my Little Birds are officially flying. I am soooooo sad.
 I hope that they are Strong and Brave and Kind and Happy. 
Off they go.
Even though they're pretty much all grown up, they'll aways look like this to me.

Why does this happen?
This was supposed to be my Last Cup of Coffee.

I've been feeling a little jumpy lately so I decided to give up coffee. This is difficult for me because I really like coffee.
So as soon as I made this decision, suddenly everywhere I went, I was reminded of CCOOOOFFFFFEEEEE.
I could Smell it in the Air!
So under the Approving Gaze of the Surfing Madonna
I stopped for a little Surfy Surfy Coffee Coffee
at the Cafe Ipe
Note the Cute Little Bunny Ears.
Ahhhh...I feel like myself again. Besides according to energyfiend
Coffee is Healthy!

Herb Angels

I took these two Little Cherubs off of an old broken bird feeder and gave them a New Home in our Little Kitchen Herb Garden.
This is what they looked like at the Beginning of the Summer.
Kinda Sad.

And this is what they look like Now.

Every Day Is A Holiday

Maybe it is because I just Love a Celebration. Or maybe it is because I am just too Lazy to put it all away. But I have a tendency to leave Holiday Decorations in the House All Year Round.

This Snowflake Candle lives on the Mantel even in Summer.

Halloween is my Favorite Holiday so it's Surprising that I only have a few remnants of that Day around.  A Raven on the Windowsill and a Spider on a Mirror Frame.
  St. Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day Tea Towels are in use Twelve Months out of the Year.
Twinkle Lights ALWAYS. Every Evening We Light Up the Hallway.
Somehow these Bunny Ears found their way onto this Topiary.
One can only Imagine how this New Year's Necklace ended up on the Headboard of the Bed.
Flowers Make Every Day A Holiday!
There are actually a lot more Holiday Decorations around the House but it was starting to get Ridiculous!
Meanwhile, if you're feeling Celebratory, here's a little Weezer to sing out the End of the Summer (or the Beginning! depending upon Where you are and When you're reading this.)
Happy Holidays!
