What’s New?

Have you ever had a day where, you realize it was probably better to stay in bed?

That if you didn’t have bad luck you would have no luck at all?

no matter what you say, you’ll always say it wrong?

           Your actions always speak louder than words?

               you get the picture……

Got up this morning, to yet another dreary day…….the dogs looked out the window and ran back to bed……Oliver literally crawled back under his blanket……Duncan just walked over to his bowl and fell into it…waiting for breakfast…….and Elvis barked twice at the birds, looked back at me and went on to watch the weather channel…….

I put a big bowl of old veggies from the fridge out in the back for the deer……they came, they saw, they left……..I could swear one of them gave me a dirty look!

I tried making a fire in the fireplace, but the wood from the woodpile outside got wet and well lets just say……crackling its not!

With one hour old coffee in hand I went online to visit all my favorite blogs…..that always raises my spirits….Stonegable  is one of them (www.stonegableblog.com)  I love Yvonne’s home, her dishes, her style, her fireside chair…

…….sigh……

Hey! I can do that!  Yvonne shared her lovely family room today and set up her comfy fireside chair….so I decided to do the same thing! I have a chair, a fireplace, a throw and a tray with coffee mugs! this is going to be great!

ummm, but first I need to straighten out the drapes behind the chair…..I haven’t cleaned them in a few months, better take them down first and clean them and press them – going to look great! Need to polish the furniture too……the lampshade needs to be dusted and the brass lamp could use a polishing….all this will show up in the photo……

The chair is well, old and worn, but I’ll put a thow on the arm that’s showing its age….I’ll put that in with the drapes to be laundered too, oh and the pillows! forgot all about the pillows! take them off the bed….down the stairs, missed the bottom step…..now my ankle is killing me!

Does Yvonne go through all of this?…..

Now the wooden tray is old and a bit scuffed….so hit the spots with stain…..Grandma’s tea set will look great on the tray – once its dry – get the ladder out, cause I stored the china on the top shelf of the pantry closet – dusty – wash the whole set……now napkins! ok April Cornell where are you? in the laundry basket…ok Ralph Lauren you will have to do……Oh no, no muffins to photo with the tea set…..ok turn the oven on, flour, sugar, eggs…SPLAT!…four eggs on the floor……sigh……..no muffins – make toast Lois!

make something!

What about the fire? Got the Bernsomatic out….I’m a woman on a mission! I’ll get that fire lite! one way or another…….but first the floor is in need of a mopping – while I have it out might as well hit the kitchen, bathroom and hallway too……looking pretty good, but the windows next to the fireplace need to be cleaned too……from the outside…….

Finally, I think I’m good to go!    Really?….

I mean, Really?……..

go to the washing machine……forgot to turn it on……the Bernsomatic ran out of gas…….the recipe called for four eggs – which were on the floor….the pillows don’t go with the tired old chair……the dogs decided to play near the ash bucket…..so….plop….everything is now shabby-Ash….and my ankle is killing me!

So this is the final take on The cozy corner at Pineridge Hills…….

And this is how Grandma’s china looked on the new hutch…..thank goodness for orange scones in the freezer!

Now back to bed……..per chance to dream……

  2. This post was hilarious, and I actually guffawed out loud and had my husband read it, because he couldn’t figure out what I was laughing at!! You’ve got a marvelous sense of humor, great writing technique and a true understanding of what the majority of us go through many of our days. Well done. And I love your tea set!!
