I like sweet tea.
Let me rephrase that. . .
. . . I LOVE sweet tea.
As a child, I went straight from milk to sweet tea.
My mama packed in my thermos every day for lunch.
No Kool-aid for me as a child.
I have never read the book,
How to Win Friends and Influence People.
I know that Mr. Carnegie offers some great advice.
But, I feel confident that somewhere between;
“Offer genuine appreciation.”
Should have been;
“Bake Aunt Lois’s fudge pie.”
Because if you are wanting to win friends,
(or bribe your children.)
You need to have this recipe.
I think shopping for a rug is the equivalent to
shopping for blue jeans. . .
You need the item,
you just can’t seem to find one that will do?
I have been rug shopping for a year.
On and off.
Why couldn’t I find a rug (or jeans)?
1. I am cheap.
2. I measured and remeasured trying to find the perfect fit.
3. I wanted something basic, yet with personality.
4. Did I mention that I am cheap?
I used to pray for twin boys.
Oh, the fun they would have. . .
the mischief they would get into. . .
the great laughs they would share. . .
I have no feeling in my pointer finger. . .
One of the hazards of spray paint.
Forget the toxic fumes,
or the detrimental affects on the ozone.
No one ever mentions the dangers to the trigger finger.
Sometimes I wonder if I might be a bit of a redneck?
I laugh at most, “You might be a redneck. . . ” jokes.
There are a few that I can relate to. . .
And, others that I get ideas from. . .
I have dreams.
Dreams of a sparkling clean house. . .
Dreams of an organized garage that you can actually park a car in. . .
Dreams of a Kitchen Scale blue pick-up truck. . .
We were sitting at the dinner table last night,
when my oldest daughter, Daisy said with a smile,
“I learned something new about myself today.”
It is always fun to make new discoveries about yourself.
I thought maybe she was going to share a new food she likes.
Or, a new interest that she has.
A crazy thing happened at my house the other day.
I have heard of this thing happening at other people’s houses. . .
I have seen it on movies. . .
But, I have never experienced it first hand.
I am a visual learner.
I don’t want to hear about how to do something.
I don’t want to read about how to do something.
I want someone to show me.
So, that is what I am going to do for you today.
For those who claim to have no creativity. . .
(which I believe EVERYONE has creativity!)
You can follow these simple pictures and have a beautiful arrangement for your front door.
