I awoke to the birds chirping and a to do list stapled to my forehead. If it weren't for the fact that it was written in Stewey's handwriting, I would think that I got my groove on, and in a fit of domestic organization, decided to get crap done around here.
The list is simple enough, really. I won't bore you with the intimate details shared between Mo-ther and "son", but it basically means that if I don't get the laundry done, the house cleaned, and the decor changed out to reflect the new season, Aunt Chrissy will have a permanent roommate.
Hmmmmm. Wonder if I should have thought of this years ago?
In any event, I'm in the Happy Chair with Laura J. Perin's Bargello Egg today (while the laundry sploshes around, mind you), and tomorrow I will tackle the cleaning of the house. In the meantime, I'm passing along a note from stitchy friend Lynda Baldauf:
I'm writing to tell you about my Spring Home Show coming up April 19, 20, and 21. I run my business, Scandinavian Stitches, from my home in Old Greenwich, CT (a 50 minute car ride from New York City).
Twice a year, I transform my home into a two-story Needlework shop and open up to fellow stitchers. Those who have come in the past have had so much fun, that they come year after year, and they bring their friends. I have door prizes, snacks and a thank you gift for everyone, just for coming. They meet fellow stitchers and share their projects in a supportive community environment.
I would love to invite more stitchers. However, I am hesitant to advertise to the general public, since this event is in my home. Would you consider mentioning it in your blog? If anyone would like to come, they would just need to RSVP to me with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203-637-6832. Then I will gladly send them my address and directions.
I appreciate your consideration and your time.
Oh, how I wish Hoosierville was but a short drive to Old Greenwich! If you attend, please have a great time and then tell us all about it! And can I get a big Woo Hoo from Miss Lynda for hosting such a fun day? Makes me want to REALLY get this place cleaned up so that we might try it here too!
Have a wonderful weekend, kids! See you on the other side!
