I want to first say thanks to my neice, Karla Cook, who took time out of her busy schedule to help me set up this blog. I have learned it is the busiest people who do the most for others. I have learned, also, as I have grown older that things that we think are so important are not really that important. Somehow we get our priorities out of order. Why do we think we have to have such a clean house anyway? Guess what? I have learned that no one will probably see it. Usually when it is at it's worse is when someone wants to stop by. (That surely isn't very often anymore.) But I came upon a secret. I park my vacuum in the living room when the carpet needs to be done. That way- should someone come by they will get the idea that I was fixing to vacuum. Pharisee!! Yep! But it works! Well, I am sure Karla didn't have her vacuum in the living room to fool someone, but I am positive she had a lot of boxes to unpack. And her husband and girls to attend to and she could probably add to the list like home schooling, re-decorating, etc. But she let all of this go to help out a blog dummie. Thanks Karla! I hope I can return the favor one day.

My pleasure!

I never thought of the vacuum cleaner trick! I guess another advantage to doing it is that if it's sitting out there it will serve as a reminder to go ahead and get that room vacuumed so you can put the silly thing away, huh? I'm terrible about procrastinating things like that!

Hey, that's a great idea!

Welcome to the blogging world! Karla sent me! Hee-hee! She got me to blogging, too! And helped me get started! I'm coming up on 3 months.

I love your blogs look! Very pretty and nice colors. :-)
