Instead I cleaned my office and the bookshelves in our little library from 7 am until 3 pm.
During that time I didn't even get dressed. I just sorted and hauled and cleaned and cursed (who made that mess anyway) and organized and cleaned some more.
And when I was done I ended up with such a clean office/craft area that I thought I'd actually show you pictures.
I'm not a decorator as you shall see, but I love my house and we live in every bit of it!
So...with no further apologizing for not being one of those perfectly coordinated gorgeous house decorating blogs...
See how tidy it looks with the curtain closed. There used to be a closet door on there but it always fell off and none of our sons took my nagging hints to repair it so I took it down and threw it away. Yea. That'll teach 'em for ignoring their poor, old, construction-handicapped Mom.
And see all the perfectly clean book shelves? You can even pick up a book now without a big pile of dust falling on your head. Go me!
And just to make up for the fact that I didn't visit your blog, e-mail you OR read your Alphabe-Thursday link I will leave you with a few Autumn jokes to make up for that inconvenience.
Q: What did one autumn leaf say to another?
A: I'm falling for you.
Q: How do you fix a broken pumpkin?
A: With a pumpkin patch
Q: What's the ratio of a pumpkin's circumference to its diameter?
A: Pumpkin Pi
You liked the jokes right? And the little tour? And you were totally impressed with my organization skills, I could tell.
Now the trick is for me not to actually work at my desk or make anything from my craft closet.
