I'm enjoying these last days of summer,
but there is just not enough time in the day for all the things I want to do.
The decorations for my high school reunion, just one week away, have been getting most of my attention lately,
but I carve out time each day for playing house.
The cosmos in the garden are particularly lovely right now
so I snipped a few to use in vignettes around the house.
Asparagus fern is taking over the garden
and instead of pruning and then tossing the greenery in the trash
I created a simple bouquet on the dining room table.
On Tuesday our new windows were installed (the painter can't start for another week)
and that left me with our old windows for a project (or two).
I want to turn the windows into a headboard for the guest room, but the question is, should the blue side of the windows face out
or should the headboard be white?
Then there is the question of whether the headboard should have the windows vertically - using both windows
or horizontally which would require only 1 window.
Lulu cast her vote for horizontal white,
but Steve is leaning toward blue so that's the way it will stay - until after the reunion.
Actually, Lulu and Steve don't care at all and they just want me to join them on the beach for the last days of summer.
