The Land Mine

How was your weekend, blogster buds?
We spent ours playing with the grands Friday night and Saturday then Sunday I did what I've been putting off forever--all because I didn't want to move my shoes out of the closet--started shampooing the carpet. Woo hoo. Note I say started. I might have to call a halt to the wild excitement for a day or two. Yup, the fun never stops at our house. What about you? I trust you've got something more titillating to share than carpet cleaning.

  1. When you have finished your carpet shampooing feel free to come over hear and start again.
    Adding to the exciting weekend stories, I scrubbed bird crap from our veranda. I do love our birds but continence isn't their strong suit...

    2. I know you are:) I do that ALL the time.
      Cleaning carpets might be worth it, if it got me to Assie Land.

    1. ps - I have been wanting to read one of your books, which one would you recommend?

      Delete
    2. Good plan. Did you know Steven King wrote Under The Dome, thirty years after he started it? I thought that was pretty cool.
      It really means a lot to me that you want to read one of my books, True. Thank you. Recommendations, hmm. If you like paranormal: Ghost For Sale or Vampire Island. If cats: Shardai or Odin Cats. Western romance: Silverhills.

  10. I rearranged my sock drawer, dear Sandra! :) Filling a weekend with household tasks isn't our favorite thing to be doing with our time but there is an undeniable satisfaction that comes from getting the job done.

  11. Moving shoes can be a big thing! Looks like you have a lot of them, too...but not as many as some people.

    3. Excuse my multitude of deletes I kept having to rewrite sentences:(

      Not as many as some people:) I used tough shoe-love and threw away a few pair:) Once I got going it wasn't that bad. And my closet looks so much neater now that they are all in place instead of strewn around.

  12. Hi Sandra, glad you had such a nice weekend. Mine was too, didn't do anything too exciting but it was very pleasant. I recently painted a long-overdue closet, decluttered by giving shoes I hadn't worn in a while to the Goodwill, and some clothes, put one of those light motion sensors inside so that I can now see what I am looking at, and built a shoe rack. It is so tidy that I keep looking inside and seeing if the light sensor works, lol. It hasn't been that tidy in a while. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a nice comment on my Monday Morning Food post. Your right, I think cashews would be a lovely addition. Enjoy your week :)

    1. Wow, Denise, your closet got the royal treatment. It sounds wonderful.
      I need to get better about taking shoes and clothes I don't wear to Goodwill. I'm just certain I'll need something as soon as I part with it. grin.
      Enjoy your week too:)

  13. You are a shoe lady:) I wish I could say I was my friend who went on a work trip(he works for a travel agency)-a weekend cruise on one of the newest ships. All I did was visit my mom, laundry and mop floors. Oh wait-I did something really exciting...wait for it...I put my summer clothes away and took out my winter clothes. Hey..at least it wasn't the weekend to shave our one cat's ass

  15. I didn't have time for housework-related fun, I worked all weekend and was so tired I dozed both afternoons. I hate carpet shampooing, because I always end up with one tiny patch that I missed!

  16. Wow - why is housework such a commitment. I thoroughly cleaned the refrigerator last weekend and once I started, I realized just how long it would take for me to finish. There was no going back, lol.
