~wish I was here~
I am sitting here watching the leaves drift by my window and listening to the carpenter working in the bathroom. And thinking that this would be a good time to write a blog post.
Trouble is, when I put my fingers to the keys and have a blank page before me, it's not that thoughts just fly out the window and join those leaves drifting to the ground. Not at all. Fact is, that there are too many ideas and thoughts running circles in my head like a hampster on a wheel and I don't know where to start.
So, I'll just begin typing and we'll see where I meander to on this rainy day in late October.
I've been thinking lately how fast the calendar pages are turning. Remember when many of us were tired of the cold winter and were eagerly awaiting spring? It only seems like a few months ago and now here we are knocking on the door of another winter. How did that happen so quickly?
So much to do and so little time. Yep, that is my mindset as of today. I'm getting older and feeling it today. I won't talk about the late run to the home center and not getting back home until 10:30 last night. Okay, maybe I'll mention that I traipsed through 3 home centers and even went to WallyWorld while I was near one.
It was necessary. The trip, that is. Mr. Carpenter decided that a new window we were going to get should be put in now rather than later. It was our fault that we had forgotten about it while we were there last time. I suppose being forgetful goes along with getting older?
I did a little surfing on a few blogs today and ran across a great idea for a wall arrangement behind my entertainment center. That wall has been bugging me for quite awhile. Now to find the right stuff. I will be shopping the house first. The idea I found can be seen at Brenda's Tweak it Tuesday. Scroll down the page and it is entry No. 2.
One of the things on my mind lately has been sprucing up my house. Just a good deep cleaning would help. I took off the drapes and washed them and rehung them the other day. I replaced the sheers, too, as a few snags could be seen courtesy of kitty claws. I only buy window treatments that are washable, nothing too fancy, because of the cats. Comfortable and cozy is my style, but it still needs a little sprucing up now and then. And a few changes are always good.
Along with the rain, the temperature has dropped. It's going to be a chilly night at the first game of the World Series in KC tonight. Go Royals!!
Hope your weather and day has been going well for you. Enjoy these remaining days of October!
Note: Some distractions prevented me from finishing this post earlier today, but I'll leave it as is. It's still sprinkling here, hope it's over by game time in KC! :)
