Good Tuesday morning everyone.I will get to the title of this post shortly...Guess who is currently on my lap?
she knows when it is blog time apparently as she always takes a nap on my lap..she got me up this morning..clawing at my door wanting in..wouldn't leave it alone..so I got up..tired too..
this is her favorite thing to do now that she can jump in the sink...
she is getting bigger by the day..hates it when we are all outside..she just meowwwwwsss at us..she is a little stinker..and starting to play with everyone now..she gets bapped on the head..but still wants to play..I wonder if she gets headaches...she gets bapped so much by her sissies.:>)
Okay for the title of my post..I was watching Hoarders, Buried alive on sunday night and holy cow..how some people live and just don't think anything of it..A-maz-ing!!!the one I watched was a gal that had mice in her home and she thought she had like 5 in her kitchen (which is 5 too many in my opinion) which in reality she had 100's maybe thousands...it was disgusting..poo everywhere...so that got me thinking..I need to downsize and SIMPLIFY MY LIFE!!!..so I am getting rid of stuff that is not handmade or I just simply don't want it any longer..I just don't need stuff...and if I do..then something needs to go to replace the new stuff..getting tired of dusting it..or if it doesn't do double duty..I cleaned out my hutch in my dining room and got rid of some stuff..took stuff from the living room..still need to work on the craft room big time..got rid of stuff in my bedroom..and it got tossed in a bin for either a garage sale or a TS run in the future..going to go through my christmas stuff too..we gotta clean out that upper portion of the garage..so I just don't want to be in the Hoarder catagory...period..my mom was a bit of a hoarder..NOT like on the show..but she just kept stuff that should have been tossed..our home is just to small for all the clutter..I love the simple look..I just want prim and uncluttered..and it will make it easier when I do my fall/winter decorating...need to get rid of cook books..just don't use them..thats another day..so the above is too copper kettles that I had on my stairs..I had candle votives in them..I would like to get $5.00 for the big one and $4.oo for the smaller one..+ shipping..

This is what we started yesterday...see all the grass missing..I am yanking it up..
we removed the brick boarder as you can see in the upper portion of the photo and repurposed it where the grass is missing for the walk way..we are taking out the grass to put down bark..this is mostly moss and clover and crap all mixed in..tired of mowing here..so this will become bark..maybe put some potted shade loving plants..or a seating area..not sure..but it is gone...
need to bark all of this in..my daisies are finally blooming..I love them...
and here is what I will be doing today..gotta truck load of bark to spread around the yard...we will need 2 or 3 more of these..but this is a start..got more grass to kill on this side..but we are laying down gravel on this side..maybe that red rock stuff..need something decorative..our weather has been pleasant..it is overcast today..which is great for working outside in..
I have been working on some projects in the evening again..I finished up one little penny rug and making a bigger one for Tamera..she ordered 3..and that is the one I am currently working on..
Well that is it for me folks..I hope your tuesday is off to a great start...
