Because clutter doesn’t bother me very much and because we spend so little time inside the house, especially this time of year, my house is usually a disaster. With company here, I’ve had to clean up a bit so I thought I’d share my family room with you.
Seeing the photo reminds me that I’ve never taken the plastic off the handle on the new furniture . . which has been here several months.
Folks sometimes comment that I need to add a topper or something to the windows besides blinds and my response is always the same — I don’t need one more thing to collect dust or have to be washed. If you’ve never lived in a hot, dry and dusty area, you cannot imagine how much dust and grit comes into the house. I’ve never been a great housekeeper but I’ve never seen so much dust inside my house as I see here. I can dust the blinds and the next day there’s more dust back on them than I had in MO when it had been a month since I dusted.
Our house is small — the smallest we’ve ever had but it’s just perfect for us. Speck is sitting in my chair waiting or me. Vince’s chair can’t be seen in the picture but it’s past the love seat.
Vince is off today and he’s sanding the rail fence. The fence builder is working. My aunt and uncle are back in the motor home to do a few things so between the noise of Vince’s generator and sander, the fence builder’s generator and welding machine and big auger digging holes . . this is not the place to be for anyone seeking peace and quiet.
Even with the dust and the spiders and scorpions, I love our little home!
