I noticed something odd when I stepped outside with Baby this morning. I think she was perplexed too. (Gratuitous doggy photo. Man, talk about needing some grooming!)
What strange phenomenon are we seeing here? Is that sunlight? Must be, as the trees seem to be casting shadows.
Are we still in Ohio? Sun? In the winter? In Ohio?
A rare thing indeed.
On top of that, we are having a heat wave. The high today will actually make it to 30 degrees!
Of course, snow again tomorrow, but the sun does wonders for my motivation.
Time to polish a bit, make everything sparkle and shine and glisten. Well, lets not get carried away. But a little bit of freshening up can make an old girl feel renewed.
(Note the term girl. I don't consider myself an old woman yet!!!)
I need to fluff up the empty spots left from Christmas. I have some big plans for Frippery Farmhouse this year. New colors, new arrangements, new flooring, finally get the second floor completely redecorated. (Or maybe just decorated as I have let that part go for several years as the kids were climbing through the teen years and having decorated rooms was not on their list of important stuff to do. At least not what mom would call decorated, hee hee.)
I did manage to floof the mantle a tiny bit. These colors are begging to be spread throughout the farmhouse. I do think all the pretty whites and neutrals I see in rooms are just breathtaking. I have tried to do that in my home but color keeps calling to me. Why fight it? I happen to like kitchsy junk and story book color. In the back of my mind, with the employment situation, I was afraid we might need to put the house on the market and I always hear neutral neutral neutral...
However things slowly seem to be looking up so I am going to make this MY house again. As Scarlett says, "I'll worry about that tomorrow."
Oh...and in case you are wondering...the word of the day on my calendar is coevel, meaning of equal age, antiquity or duration, usually refering to things of great age such as galaxies and ancient civilizations. Seriously? This has to be a cosmic joke right?
Wise words and true..."Do not regret growing older, it is a privilege denied to many."
Yours in antiquity, P.
