I have a very short attention span which can be detrimental to my productivity, but sometimes it's a good thing.
This morning, my plan was to CLEAN the house from top to bottom.
I got as far as cleaning the entry way, ironing a table runner and cutting flowers for the dining room.
My first distraction from cleaning was deciding that the display on this shelf in the dining room needed refreshing.
I looked in cupboards for anything yellow to put on the shelf.
I was happy with the results, but this little plate drove me further off track from cleaning.
The plate has holes for a ribbon and I found some THANK YOU ribbon in my stash, but ended up going with some cute little bee ribbon.
The THANK YOU ribbon made me think that I needed to get with the Thanksgiving program so instead of moving on to clean the living room, I headed to the garage to make some question tags for the family to use on Thanksgiving.
I looked for rubber stamps with words that could lead to questions.
I used two different sizes of tags.
First I stamped the cards.
Then I rubbed colored chalk all over the cards.
And finished up with a snip of baker's twine on each tag.
The little yellow heart shaped bowl is now holding the colorful tags
Steve came into the dining room to ask me two questions -
Are you done with the vacuum?
Do you know it is about time for you to leave for your volleyball game?
Unfortunately, the answer to both questions was no.
I tore through the house finishing the vacuuming and made it to the game on time.
Unfortunately my girls had a heart breaking loss of 14-15 in the third game - we won't be going to the playoffs.
My short attention span got me sidetracked, but the house ended up clean and I created a fun little game for Thanksgiving dinner.
