My transition from cluttered to simple living.

The Best Laid Plans....

When I woke this morning, I lay quietly, enjoying the sound of the falling rain, and knowing that today I would have the opportunity to stay home and complete some projects. I LOVE this time of year, and I love the opportunity to "Cocoon."

I mentally compiled a list of the projects that have been hanging over my head and divided my day, assigning so much time to each task.

First on my list of priorities is to complete the binding on a quilt I am making for my grandson...

The second item I would like to work on is this painting which is only half finished...

So I made my way downstairs, only to discover, that my dog had other plans on how I would spend my morning. "Someone" had left her out of her "doggy room."

She has a deathly fear of storms and tried to escape the storm outside by creating one inside.

She has settled now and is back in her doggy room with our other dog who has no issues.
In case you are wondering... our Labrador would have NEVER done anything like you guessed the Jack Russell terrorist, you have won the prize of the day! Her!!! (I may throw in the "Someone" who left her out as an added bonus.) Just email your address. I will pay the shipping and handling!

  1. Oh don't you just hate it when unexpected events throw a monkey wrench in your day. Hopefully you will be able to salvage some time to do some of the things you had planned. The quilt and the painting are both beautiful.
    Try to have a great rest of the day.

  2. Thanks, LA. I am not sure I am in the mood to paint now, but maybe after I have cleaned up the mess....

  3. What a talented woman you are!!! The quilt is beautiful and the painting of the flower is so quiet and soft.

    Love the shot of the two dogs!

  4. Thank you, Cathy, but I don't love my dogs at this moment... and I am regretting that I don't have soft or quiet feelings right now. The pictures of the mess that was left does not truly represent the extent of the damage.

    Hopefully I will shake this mood soon so that the rest of the day can be salvaged.

    Thanks for visiting!
