Room With A View



It's been so visually beautiful outside. We've had some flashy weather lately and these days of fall color will be gone before we know it. I'm not going to be as thrilled taking pictures of bare branches. I know it. BTW, if you haven't checked out Picasa 2, I'd recommend it. Their photo editing options are awesome.

I really did work for 6 hours straight yesterday. My house smells like Softscrub and Murphy's Oil Soap. I had Christmas music blaring to keep me motivated. I've made lists of the jobs I've tackled, and what needs to be done. All this is in preparation for holiday decorating and the parties to follow. I need a clean base. Nothing like a party to get your house in order. The more I get done early, the less stress I feel.

Emily was amazed that people think we look so much alike. She said, maybe people think one of the pictures in the past post was of her, and one of me. I told her my picture is all over the place and everyone knows I have short hair. Right? We just look a lot alike.

Time to finish getting ready for work. Happy Fridayy.

Your house looks so bright and sunny. This morning I saw a tree so red it looked like a poinsetta against the blue sky. It's a pretty morning.

What a delightful room! It's so pretty with all those windows and the fall colors surrounding you. All you are missing is one of your squirrel friends peering in!

Is Emily ok with looking so much like her lovely mother? Or just amazed?

What a beautiful view out the window there! I would definitely be sitting there having my morning coffee and enjoying those colors every morning!

You have a lovely home! I love getting in those long cleaning modes, its so relaxing to sit down and really enjoy your home without some project staring you in the face.

You and your daughter look alike, definitely. ;)

That photo is fantastic! Like Fiwa said, it looks like something out of a magazine. So professional looking. That room is so inviting!

I love your room, too. Just so beautiful with that view!

Ok, I will think about you cleaning for 6 hours and that will help me to stay motivated this weekend when I start getting my house ready for Thursday!

Peace,
Lena

That is so beautiful! I would love to sit there all day, too. I love clean, I don't like doing it, but I love it being that way, and there's only one way to get it there, so....

You worked hard, take a break!

Have a good FRIDAY today!

Andrew said...

Good Morning on a cold southern dawn. Hope work is good today!

Summer said...

A clean house makes you feel good! I love the view. Does the sun set on your deck?

I read your post last night before bed. I spent what it seemed like all night dreaming that I was cleaning. When I woke up, for a second I was thinking that everything was done. Then I realized it was all a dream... lol
