Windy Day and Other Thoughts
Today is a windy windy day. The previous 2 days were spent with running from house to car, from car to house trying to not get too too wet in all the rain. Now today, the sun has come out but it is windy and blustery and the whole world feels as if it is going to topple over and roll clumsily down the side walk like an empty trash can.
This morning I had great intentions of 1) Cleaning the House, 2)Not leaving the house at all and 3) Doing Something Crafty and Creative.
But instead I 1) Went and saw my new gal pal Rhonda's fab home in the country and wrestled Miles away from her swimming pool 2) Went to lunch with my Sweetie at Cafe Prego and wrestled Miles into the booth 3) Walked around the house overwhelmed by messes, such as the Great Salt Spill of Friday I have pictured here.
I know there are people out there who like to clean their houses. Who have schedules and plans and daily list. I am not one of those people. I also know that there are people who can craft around their children, who even, perhaps craft with their children. Again, I am not one of those people. When I craft and create I want to go to my own world and play - I don't want to have to monitor Who Took Whose Paints and Please Stop Throwing the Glitter At The Dog.
Good thing these kids of mine are so darn cute, otherwise I might not survive all the harsh realities of domestic life.
