Ten Things Tuesday…

Y’all I am scattered, smothered, and covered.

Maybe it’s all the short trips out of town on the heels of a crazy month of May.

Maybe it’s just summertime with a houseful.

Maybe I just can’t get my act together.

When I sat down to write a post for y’all, my brain was all over the place.  So I decided to take you down the rabbit hole of my thoughts…

1.  I want a vegetable garden.  Not sure I want all the work that comes with one, but there’s something about being able to eat out of your own garden.

2.  This color scared me at first…

… but it dries very differently.  Before and Afters to come!

3.  Evenings around here look a lot like this…

Craziness. 🙂

4.  I haven’t been challenging myself when I exercise.  I’ve become complacent.  And it shows.  Time to ramp up the work outs.

5.  I still can’t keep up with my shelter mags.  Should I let some subscriptions go?  I have two month’s worth to take on our next junket (which just happens to be this weekend.).  What do you think?

6.  As much as I love being on the go, I need some more time at home.

7.  This post by Susan on why our homes are such a mess has me thinking…

8.  And it’s sad to me that I actually have a gal that cleans for me every few weeks.  I engaged her in the midst of the school year when I was completely overwhelmed.  But now that it’s summer time, I really should be able to tackle it myself.  But is it fair to scale her back now?  Hmm…

9.  A seriously good read if you love historical fiction…


10.  I may build an ark soon… as great as all the rain can be, I am officially over it.  I emptied these planters yesterday afternoon to keep my geraniums from drowning, and this is what they looked like this morning.


Thanks for joining me on my Crazy Train today!  Do you have days like this, too?  Please tell me I’m not alone!

PS:  Did you catch my Mohawk Homescapes post on outdoor entertaining?   I’d love to hear YOUR tips for outdoor entertaining!

  1. I have ten thoughts but I have to feel guilty first about all the clutter in my big house.

    I have been feeling a bit scattered myself. So much to do and so little time. As far as the magazines I too found that mine were just piling up and then I would try to quickly get through them to streamline the clutter. I decided to only renew 4 subscriptions and now I can take the time to really enjoy the ones that I still receive. I loved the post from Living Rich on Less. I have been working at getting rid of things and simplifying our home and life. I hope you have a wonderful, productive and less scattered day 🙂

  3. ooh i think that color looks fun and i can’t wait to see it!

  4. Heidi, thanks for the link love. And regarding your question about letting your shelter mags subscriptions lapse, I have cancelled EVERY.SINGLE.ONE of mine this year. I’ve got enough magazines stacked around the house to do me for the next year. I can resubscribe at that point if I need inspiration. It saves me money, space, and the anxious feeling I get when I feel like I should be reading them. For what it’s worth …

  5. Oh Heidi, I can relate to what you are saying…having had the last 8 weekends totally taken up by travel or company has taken a toll on my energy and brain!…but I have an excuse…I am older!!…:)….so many projects…so little time….Curious about the gorgeous red!…but take time for the kiddos…as they grow up way too fast!..
