In the world of home decor blogs, I marvel at those bloggers who always have some big project going,
who are constantly rearranging and DIYing.
I'm sure that many of them have the money to do so
because of the income they earn from their highly successful blogs.
Many times they receive the products they use in their projects as a way to promote them.
I also realize that this is their job, their blog is their income source,
and the hours they spend on house projects and writing about and photographing their projects is their labor.
Part of me thinks this would be heaven on earth,
but the other part of me is exhausted just thinking about all of the work involved.
After all, I'm the woman who has been procrastinating repainting her kitchen cabinets
for months and months and months.
For the rest of us who love home decor,
there comes a time when the calendar is full and the money is allocated elsewhere,
and/or we're just too tired or too lazy to do any big projects.
I'm all of the above.
So my focus, until after our daughter's wedding in May,
is to just try to keep my house relatively clean.
You notice I said relatively.
These photos bear witness that the outside of our windows need washed.
However, it would be a futile effort, since for over a month we've had a bird that goes from window to window in our house, flailing himself against the glass and getting them all dirty and marked up.
He starts before sunrise and continues throughout the day until sunset.
It's bizaare and creepy.
We've nicknamed him "devil bird".
The Nester's advice at times like these, when things aren't perfect,
is to draw your eyes away from the imperfection toward something else.
Perhaps if you come over to my home, these lovely lilacs will draw your eyes away
from my dirty windows and my paint chipped cabinets.
I hope so!
It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a safe and BLESSED weekend!
