Like A Butterfly ๐Ÿฆ‹

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

You’re probably wondering about the title of this post ๐Ÿค”

Let me explain…that’s how I feel these days – like a butterfly flitting from task to task. Somehow I can’t sit still for any length of time. I’m always thinking about things I wanna/gotta do. And it’s never the one thing I’m doing right then and there. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Do you know what I mean? Do you have times like that?

Things that did get done

-I did clean up baskets in my ‘Yarn-Room’. But only because the new winder called me in there. ๐Ÿ˜

-I did go on a few walks this week. My friend Carole and I are taking advantage of the glorious weather – morning temperatures in the 40s is quite a change from last week, but we’re enjoying the sunshine that comes with it, and the fact that we’re not damp after one mile ๐Ÿ˜

-Some yard work – The ‘Rose of Sharon’ bush that was out of control is no more. Normally I don’t like cutting down Flora that’s healthy and growing. But this bush didn’t seem to be doing too well. It was still green and growing, but the leaves were very small, and the buds wouldn’t open to all their glory. So the clippers came out…this is what’s left

It’s hard to believe that, just a few years ago, this was a spindly, little twig with a few short roots.

The trim should give it new life…we’ll see next year. ๐Ÿ˜Š

While I was outside with my camera I noticed the sun hitting this beauty just right

Doesn’t it look like it’s glowing? ๐Ÿ˜

We have the first red leaves in the yard! The Maple ‘volunteer’ in the flower pot wants to be the first one to announce that ‘Fall is here’ ๐Ÿ

The dogs enjoyed the time we spent outside ๐Ÿ’•

-Carpet steps are (finally) clean ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ever since we moved in I’ve had this problem with dingy steps, well – just the edges. Because our Lorelai (the white one โฌ†๏ธ) is very low to the ground, so her belly gets a bit dirty walking around outside. It doesn’t help that she loves to lay down in the grass, pull herself forward, all around the yard ๐Ÿ˜†

Then she comes in, cleaning her belly on the steps ๐Ÿ˜

I’ve tried every commercial product under the sun…nothing would get these edges clean. But now – thank you, Pinterest! – they’re clean…and it’s not the different lighting ๐Ÿ˜†

before

It’s a miracle! I’ll tell you what did it…

3/4 cup Hydrogen Peroxide

2 teaspoons baking soda

1squirt of Dawn

Mix it well, dab, then scrub, onto the stain. Done!

Happy Tina here! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

-Crocheting

By the end of every day I kick back in front of the TV and add rows to ‘Georgia Mae’s Flower Patch’ ๐Ÿ˜ Yes, the plan to make it a Crochet-Along is still solid. I’m taking pattern-notes, and hope to have Part I up by this weekend!

-I guess now I can add this blog-post to my list of things done ๐Ÿ˜

I hope you are enjoying a sunny, creative, and beautiful day! ๐Ÿ’•
