Life at Home. In June.

June 4, 2012

Nothing like getting a peek at the rip roaring revelry that goes on around here! I'm so impressed with that sweet alliteration I'm going to say it again slowly in italics for ya: rip. roaring. revelry. The whole reason I read blogs is because I want to see what y'all are doing inside your homes. I AM SO NOSY. So from time to time, I will totally repay the favor and show you all the action packed...us sitting around doing not much. FUN right?

I kid you not, this is pretty much where Sally spends 99% of her day. The other 1% of the day she is looking for my sweater to eat. If you ever hear of my sudden and unexpected demise, please send the authorities over to investigate the cat. She's just biding her time until I am out of the picture and Andrew is all hers. I've never seen a cat love a human the way Sally loves Andrew. It's creepy and hilarious and sweet.

Also please note my AWESOME green nordic inspired pajama botttoms. This is what I'm wearing when I'm writing to you sweet people. Try and get that image out of your head.

All I can see in this photo are my nostrils. There. Now that is all you will be able to see too! I totally feel like we have bonded since I have now discussed my nostrils with you. Do you like my polka dotty sweater? One day soon I will most likely forget to put it away and then Sally will probably eat it. I got it at Target. They have the best cardigans in the whole wide world. I just got this one.

Here is my bed. It never looks like this. For some reason I made the bed, and I was so impressed with myself I had to document this odd made-bed-phenomenon and take a picture of my nice bed. The bed is made maybe two times a month. I have tried every system in the world to get my bed made and the most I've ever made it to is four days and then it all falls to heck. Are you impressed with my nicely made bed? I am.

Rosebud is looking at robins. What else would you like to see? Some books?

'Bedtime Stories' by Thornton W. Burgess is a book that maybe was mine? Or it belonged to my little bro? I can't remember. But when I went to Maui to visit my dad last December, I found this beauty hiding in the attic. And it came home with me. And I've been reading it to Julia. And she LOVES it. I wrote about my love for the Thornton Burgess books in this post; they are SO worth seeking out.

Pajamies, lovestruck cats, vintage books and a properly made bed. Our June is off to an exciting start!

  1. Oh that bed! I'm currently sleeping on a mattress on the floor. This looks like a dream, friend.

    1. When we first moved into our home, our mattress was on the floor for a long time because we had no box spring! Julia looooooooved it, she loved being able to just run and jump on our bed. Funny the things that children just adore :)

    Huh. So Sally spends 99% of her time on Andrew's lap. Sally also makes many attempts to eat your sweater. Your house sweater, I presume. I think there is a conspiracy ...

    1. I would say the cat is only gunning for me, but she has eaten several stuffed animals and also one of Andrew's pullovers. I still think it would be prudent for me to not turn my back on that cat. :)

  3. I couldn't agree more on the target cardies! I am drawn to them, especially when they get a batch-- I always see a few I like but don't buy (because of the husband sweater mockery) and then I get home and think how perfect they would have been.

    Also, Julia should be running for office, her platform of happiness, twirling, and giving flowers to neighbors would be a nice positive one that I think all leaders, worldwide could use a little more of--you know fun and kindness and just being and nice-- I'll vote in more of that for sure!

    1. I think Miss Julia would also throw in a free Squinkie or My Little Pony for everyone supporting her twirling campaign! :) Just FYI, I'm wearing my polka dotty cardi RIGHT NOW. I spend a lot of time and thought to keeping my Target sweaters out of the cat's mouth b/c I would be Terribly Sad if she chewed my favorites.

  4. I love the glimpses into your life! And I am super impressed by the bed--mine is very hastily made and looks as though I should not have gone through the minimal effort--in other words, it would probably look better UNMADE. oh well.

  5. I love this post. Love the kitties! I understand the bed thing. I usually make the bed (sloppily), but the hubby leaves stuff strewn about the floor and shelves to the point where I don't know what to do. So the bedroom door stays closed. And cardigans are the best. We're back in the 80s and 90s here, so I'm looking for some I can get away with wearing in this heat. My current favorites are from Target, too, although I have some love for the soft ones at Old Navy.

  6. That cat looks blissful in that picture! very funny. We had a Siamese when I was a kid that was in love with my older brother like that. The rest of us were not worth a lick compared to him.

    That book looks wonderful. I've never heard of Thornton Burgess but I'm going to be on the lookout now.

    I would have guessed you were a make your bed everyday kinda gal, learn something new everyday :)

  7. Robyn: Thornton B. is OLD SCHOOL -- my dad read his stuff as a boy. And some of the stories, you can really tell how old school it is, with the aw-shucks language! But the books are all so great.

    Miss D: Today was 53 at noon. Oh the sadness.

    V: I am very much in favor of an artful mess of bed coverings! (aka, just a mess :).
