Door Decor

Which door?   What decor?

This door, and this decor:

dark blue curtain, back door, humor

UGH to the LY

It’s my back door.

This curtain is dark navy blue.   BOO!!!   You KNOW I can’t let THAT stay here in MY house!!   If something isn’t purple, I have an allergic reaction!!   Get that girl a purple curtain!   STAT!!

 

So, here’s the door, mid change.    {You know normally I’m against nudity, but….. no vital areas are exposed.}

So immodest!!

 

Now, finally done.    It was such an exhausting process.     Removing the old curtain, from the rod, and sliding on the new one. Time for a nap.

So pretty in purple!!

And Bonus: finally there’s light at the end of the tunnel hall!

 

 

 

 

 

Melinda’s M*riju*n*

Michelle, Sis, came to eat lunch with me last Wed.  While she was in the bathroom, washing her hands, she hollered called, “Hey!   Why do you have a m*riju*n* leaf in here??”    I yelled “WHAT???” as I ran walked semi-quickly in there.   She pointed to this:

Melinda's m*riju*n* leaf

Wow! Really?

She said, “Seaweed is all flowy, and curved on this curtain.   Do ya see any pointy leaves??”

OH NO!!!    I never gave it a thought, that it looked like m*riju*n*!!    I do remember looking at it and thinking, “Huh.   That’s weird, only 1 leaf, and all the rest fish.”

There it is, big as life!

 

 

Now I GOTTA go get a new shower curtain!!   NO more delays!!   I can’t have people thinking Melinda approves of illegal stuff!     (Do you think it was a secret code??   Ya know, like those black lantern boys in people’s yards were a secret code for “This house is a stop on the Underground Railroad.” ???)     Whatever, time to get it gone!!!!     One shower curtain and hooks purge coming up!!

Shower Show

Just reread one of Nony’s old posts that you’re supposed to hang your shower curtain to dry- in the shower.

WHAT??? You’re supposed to wash those things???   That’s a new one on me!

My MO usually is to ignore the mildew and black mold, until it has crept ALL the way up the curtain, and I get contact dermatitis from brushing into it.

In my defense: I inherited this shower curtain. Oh wait- that makes it worse, doesn’t it???

Just like those those dratted 2 year old dishes of mine.

 

 

sigh

 

 

I’m not made outta money, ya know!   I can’t afford to replace that thing every month!   (Even tho I totally buy them at the dollar store!)

But washing it, and hanging it back up to dry- huh.   Who woulda thunk??

(Even though, I’m pretty sure this is what Mama did, now that I stop and think about it, because when I lived at home, our shower curtain was never dirty.   (Or any other space in our house!!   Mama was a real live Cleanie!!!)  (And I was allergic.  Not to her, just to being a Cleanie.)

So, will have to ponder on this some more…..  until the mildew  has turned into a living entity, and strangled me in the shower, probably….    When that happens, that’ll show me!     I shoulda listened to Nony and Mama!!

 

Saga of the Sad Bare Windows

Once upon a time, there were 2 sad, bare windows.

The light shone dimly through them.  The dark seeped through them.  They knew they were not fulfilling their true beautiful potential.

One day a seamstress came to visit,

and noticed how sad they were.  She exclaimed, “Oh, windows!  I see how sad you are, I’m here to help.”

The windows were so excited, they sparkled happily.

So, the seamstress sat down and sewed all night.  In the morning, the windows were dressed in gorgeous Purple cafe curtains.

The windows were so happy to have the gorgeous Purple skirts that they sparkled and shone so brightly that the seamstress had to wear shades.

 

 

The End

 

 

 

 

 

 

First Day

I’ve been reading Nony, from A Slob Comes Clean, for about a month now. She has motivated me to get my butt in gear. Sunday night, Monday morning!, I bought her 2 e-book set. Drowning in Clutter, Drain the Ocean, and 28 Days to Hope in Your Home. Of course, being me, I read them immediately.  Then, I got up and emptied the dw.  DH was so excited when he opened it Mon. morning and saw it empty.  Then I got really CRAY-CRAY, and while he took the grand baby, Pudding Pop, for her morning walk, I swept and mopped the living room. My back hurt, and I was huffing, and puffing. Yes, and sweating too.

But, it only took me approximately 10 minutes, start to finish, including moving the toys. Then I sat down, and basked in the glow of a job well down. And basked all day! And posted about it copiously on FB. and private messaged everyone who didn’t comment on my post. I’m so needy for approval. Then I decided to start this blog, to look back on my accomplishments, and brag on myself!

Actually, I’ve been working on cleaning up for longer than just 1 day.  After I got out of Physical Therapy Rehab, June 5, I started getting the itch to have a house that was nice. Not pristine, magazine level, no one can touch anything, just nice.  So, I began going thru boxes, and getting rid of stuff. It felt good to see those 3 boxes of donations, 1 box for consignment, and 13 gallons of trash leave out the door!  We straightened up the living room, and began having people over, well, family.  Then I even had the nerve to have Pudding Pop’s first birthday party here! Everything looked really good. 

I have sewn 1 curtain for the living room, now I need to do 1 more. And wait for DH to put up the rods.

If I continue to help with the dishes, and sweep and mop every day, he’ll soon be putty in my hands!
