I think this may be my new blog motto. Or my new life motto. Or both. Unfortunately for me (but great for her) Leahpeah has the best tag line ever; Flawed but Authentic. I am not sure anyone will top that one. Not ever. So for now I am going with "rarely finished but rarely dull..." because that is the most honest spin I can put on my little hodgepodge life. Equal parts exasperation and hope, shaken, stirred and served with a twist.
This is my new wonderful swing from Lowes. I have been coveting, drooling, fawning over this swing (and ones like it) for years now. This year my sweet man bought it for me as an early anniversary gift, because he knew I would be able to enjoy it more while the weather is not strangle-your-mother hot. Yet. I wanted this particular one because it folds down from it's regular locked and upright position into a bed. A swinging bed....My dream come true. Because as anyone who knows me well will tell you, I prefer to lounge.
Of course I am no dummy. The sheet and the pillows come in with me after each visit to the patio in order to escape the jaws of She-Dog.
So if I am a little behind on all those projects I mentioned - repainting the dining room, the bedroom, the kitchen, you know why. I am enjoying my new little resting place, reading, dreaming, ignoring the mess inside and making plans for the rest of the patio area. Now that I am spending more time outside my focus has shifted more to finishing it, cleaning it, brightening it up a bit more, making it more comfy for dining al freso and visiting with friends...
But I don't make any promises that any of my grand plans (inside and out) will actually get finished anytime soon. After all I do have some reading to catch up on first thanks to a special delivery from Tracy.
Like I said in the beginning, things around here are rarely finished, but rarely dull.
