Mom's Coming For a Visit ... Time to Really Clean House
You know, I do keep a fairly clean house ... but when my mom pays a visit, for the first day or so, I really want the house to sparkle! This weekend I took care of the lawn duties ... as well as relaxed and made lots of mental notes about neat places we can visit while Nathan is in school. Quaint little coffee houses and shops to explore, antique shops, the Ace Hardware store in Coeur D' Alene had some neat oil lamps in the window that I need to check out, and there are still plenty of gorgeous autumn trees to admire. Perhaps we can even drive up to Sandpoint to splurge on a nice outfit at Coldwater Creek; usually once a year I buy a really nice outfit ... and it seems it must be about that time again. Mom will like that little side trip. So, with that in mind, today will be a day to spruce things up a bit. My car is desparately screaming to be cleaned ... and, of course, there are fresh linens to put on the bed. She's also anxious to see the progress on our home. Last time she visited, we hadn't even begun building ... so she's in for a treat. You may recall that two weeks ago I was whining for my "mommy" ... well, looks like God answered that little (a-hem) desparate prayer ;) May your week be blessed!
