Monday, Monday

It's another gray Monday.
My book club is coming tonight,
so I'm busy cleaning bathrooms
and mopping floors,
destroying all the evidence
that this is a lived-in house.

Today's also mosaic Monday

so I'll leave you with this little photo montage.
As usual, Mary of Little Red House
is hostess for the day
and gives you links to all participants
if you click HERE.
She's thinking spring.

So go visit and while you do,
I'll get right down to the real nitty gritty,
though I have to say
that since I hired Amber to help me
organize the basement,
I feel like all I ever do is sort, discard, recycle,
free-cycle, go to Goodwill,
clean and organize.

Perhaps I'm making room
for something new in my life.
Or maybe something wonderful is about to come round again.
Just because I deserve it.

It does feel good to sort, edit and organize - and make room for the new literally and metaphorically.

I always enjoy your photo mosaics - lovely!

Isn't funny how we all do exactly what you describe - try to eliminate any evidence of living in the house when we expect guests. What strange creatures we are. Do you clean up before the cleaning lady comes? I don't have one now, but the years that I did always found myself scurrying around cleaning up before she arrived. Duuuuh?

Absolutely! And as Queen I declare and ordain that something better than wonderful be sent your way immediately. I completely agree with you, you most certainly deserve that and more.
Hugs from here, enjoy your Monday.

you know how that sings to my heart.

i believe..
i do.
you are sweeping out dead leaves with a relentless broom,
preparing for spring.
beauty and fulfillment.

love your mosaics!!!

I've been fantasizing about clearing out some spaces - the attic and basement are screaming for a cleaning! maybe enlisting a buddy would help!

but I want to make room for no more stuff!

my bookgroup meets this week too! still have 75 pages left to read - our book this month is infidel ay ayaan hirsi ali - among the things I love about bookgroup is reading books I probably wouldn't necessarily pick up if I was left to my own devices!

what was your book?

like the new(ish) header

I have book club this week, but we decided to meet at a restaurant tonight, so no one has to scurry around and clean anything. :-)
