The people we bought this house from . . the wife is an amazing housekeeper. You really could eat off her floors. I have never seen one thing out of place in her house. Of course, when we bought the house, we didn’t sign anything agreeing to keep the house immaculate so . . I’m not real worried about it. Even when I think my house is remarkably clean, they show up and I noticed there’s a stack of folded clothes in the recliner that I meant to take to the bedroom; the vac hose is still out because . . why put it up when I’m going to vacuum again in the morning and there’s no one here but me; there are a dozen empty plastic mailers on the dining table because that’s where I was opening packages and organizing the cross stitch projects.
She is also an amazing decorator. Their house always looks like something out of a decorating magazine. Mine . . not so much. I have visions of beautiful cross stitch samplers on my walls but for now, it’s all fabric and floss . . not yet stitched. We did bring some things to hang on the wall but we never got around to it while Vince was here. So . . not one thing has been hung on a wall. Well, I take that back, there is one thing on the wall.
Addie’s school’s fundraiser had a cardinal wind chime and since the mascot for the schools here is the cardinal, I had to have it. Vince was already gone when it arrived and I have no idea where to hang it so, to keep it safe, I just stuck it up on a nail the former owners left in the wall in the foyer. After they left last night, I thought about that wind chime hanging on the wall. She isn’t a judgmental person but she had to notice that and think . . that lady needs some decorating help. I do but the wind chime isn’t staying there . . probably! 🙂
