Monday, June 11

My mother-in-law and her husband arrive tonight. The guest room is ready. The guest bath and the rest of the house, not so much. It will come together; it always does.
So many of my neighbors are having trees removed that it sounds like we're living in a lumber camp. Two houses across the street, our next-door neighbor and now the next block over. I confess that come autumn I always want to chop all of ours down because of the leaf raking, but I would never do it this time of year when they're at their prettiest. Although I will admit I cheered the demise of a huge cottonwood - the tree from hell.
Dragged the husband to Home Depot yesterday to buy replacement bulbs for the kitchen. The strobe like effect of the dying flourescents was giving me a headache. I also decided to replace the shower curtain liners in both bathrooms. I have been buying shower curtains for over forty years and this is the first time I managed to get the wrong size. I didn't know they made narrow liners. Anyway, now they have to be returned and replaced today since I didn't decide to hang them until about midnight yesterday.
I also have a riding lesson because I won't let a filthy house keep me from the barn. My priorities are my own.
Winston peed in the house at least three times yesterday. He hadn't had an accident in days; I guess because I was taking him outside all the time. Apparently he's still clueless.
And I guess I better stop avoiding the inevitable and get to scrubbing. Ugh.

  1. Aww, you're bringing down all of your trees? Do you have any photos or pictures of your lawn with the trees on it or did it happen already?
