Sunday Something

If your house is dirty (like mine is) then this will make you smile. Thanks mom for sending it to me:)

LADIES!!! Remember...a layer of dust protects the Wood beneath it.

'A house becomes a home when you can write 'I love you' on the furniture .'

I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect - 'in case someone came over'
Finally I realized one day that no-one came over; they were all out living life and having fun!
NOW, when people visit, I don't have to explain the 'condition' of my home
They are more interested in hearing about the things I've been doing while I was away living life and having fun.

If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice.

Life is short. Enjoy it!
Dust if you must .......
but wouldn't it be better to paint a picture or write a letter, bake cookies or a cake and lick the spoon or plant a seed,
ponder the difference between want and need?
Dust if you must, but there's not much time . . . .
with tea to drink , rivers to swim and mountains to climb , music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must,
but the world's out there with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain. This day will not come around, again.

Dust if you must , but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind. . ..

And when you go - and go you must - you, yourself will make more dust!


  1. Ahh that makes me feel better!!By the way, I bet your house is cleaner than mine!! Maybe we should put money on it =)

  2. There's plenty of time to clean after the kids grow up and leave the house. Who ever said one of their great regrets of life was "not cleaning enough." Play with those babies. They won't be babies for long! xoxo mom

  3. And this is exactly why I don't blog right now... I feel like I am MISSING life!!!! So I am with ya, play- we live in AZ that dust ain't goin now where: )


I totally appreciate you taking the time to comment! I love it! However, I reserve the right to delete any comment that is inappropriate or malicious. No need for that here:) Thanks in advance!
