Great day today in cold Mississippi! I'm usually very hot-natured when at work; I'm the one with the desk fan blowing while the other girls are hugging their mini-heaters. Well, not today! I was cold ALL DAY LONG. What a change from my usual state. It was in the low 40's (Fahrenheit) outside today which isn't all that cold really. It's just a big dip in a short amount of time for this area and my bones couldn't shake the chill today.

I'm off all weekend and I am sooooo glad. I'm ready for an entire weekend to do some things around the house. Hopefully some of it will be fun stuff while I get caught up on laundry and *shudder* cleaning house. I wish I had the funds to hire a maid for one day a week. Of course, I'd wear myself out cleaning before she got here so she wouldn't see how bad it was LOL!!! Guess I'll save my maid money and just do it myself. One of these days :-)

My remarks about a messy craft room drew some sympathetic comments. Now we know we're not alone if our craft rooms are too stacked up to work in. Apparently it's a problem that plagues many of us. When I was working on the decorations for Mom & Dad's 50th wedding anniversary party a couple of months ago...I had to move the needed supplies to the dining room table so I'd have room to work. And you know what?  Some of that stuff is STILL THERE *embarrassed giggle* I know; I'm hopeless.

It's just NOT FUN to clean up so I never finish the entire job once I do get started on it. I get sidetracked so the phone, the television, finding an embellishment or art supply I'm suddenly inspired by. Those sidetrack roads are just too numerous and call too loudly for me to ignore.

It's a good thing I'm married to the most patient man in the world. He's a true sweetheart and never complains about all the stuff. I do keep it out of his way for the most part. And if I ask him to help me clean up or get organized, he's always willing to tackle any job with me. I'm blessed and I know it!

Here's a picture of my father, Clyde aka Granddaddy B,  when he was in the military many years ago. The resolution is too low for it to be used in any art pieces so please don't try...for looking only :-)  I just want y'all to 'meet' my Daddy. Isn't he dreamy? LOL!!  Mom said he was always told he looked like the movie star Tab Hunter.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to enter the giveaway at the original post from December 9th !!

God Bless You

Love the new look! It's funny what you said about cleaning before the maid comes. I used to have a housekeeper, and I loved having her but dreaded the night before she came because I'd have to rush around picking up clutter.

I love getting comments too - makes you feel that you aren't rambling to yourself so much :P For some seriously messy desks and rooms you should come play with us on WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday) makes you feel a WHOLE lot better about your own creative muddle I can tell you ;)

Your Dad is incredibly handsome. He does look like a movie star! I loved seeing your craft room. I love reorganizing because it really gets your mind spinnning with ideas when you discover things you forgot you had! LOL!! I am hopeless that way:) Have a lovely day Sweet Friend. Love, Jamie
