busy bee!

I am sorry I can't find my camera. There are so many things I want to show you, I got the last of my blocks in the mail from the APQBloggers Block Swap and there are a few other things that came too that I want to share (all treats have been long consumed). I made last months quilt block for another swap I am in (the theme was growth). I want to show you a quick project I started to get the juices flowing when I don't want to think too hard, and some things I bought/won/have waiting in the wings.

I can't because my camera is MIA.

We took it to the local parade but were too cold to take our hands out of the blankets we brought with us to take pictures, and haven't seen it since.

I will tell you other things I've done lately:

A steam cleaned the living room, we laid down the rug, rearranged the furniture (its going to take a slight adjustment when the table gets here but I didn't want it to look like something was missing in the meantime)

I gutted my desk since the TV is next to it now

cleaned the girls room (never ending there!)

today's project was the kitchen. I have the freezer, five more drawers, the walls, and the floor to do, the shelves and cupboards are all rearranged and things that were in bulk have been portioned out. I might ask A to help me with the walls and floor for Mothers Day, but who knows, I might get to it myself tomorrow.

My next day off project will be my bedroom/laundry. I think I will be sending R to daycare for that one. I don't mind a helper but the bedroom is so bad right now that I want to get in, be left alone (maybe make a myself some drinks *wink* ) watch corny movies and just do it. No interruptions, no needs to meet, nothing else to irritate me besides the mess.

I hope you are all not too deep into spring cleaning, and I hope you are able to work on some fun projects!

Hope you find your camera soon, sounds like some interesting project for us to see. Maybe with all the cleaning it will turn up in the least expected place! Sounds like you have been a whirlwind with all the cleaning! Take some time for yourself and do something fun before you burn out with all the cleaning stuff.

That's a shame about your camera. Perhaps it will turn up. Buy another one - that usually does the trick! You must be pleased with your efforts in straigthening up your home. A good clean up can be quite therapeutic. Keep up the good work. Cheers, Ann :-)

Maybe all your spring cleaning will unearth the camera. A good bout of organising does feel good once in a while and lets you better focus on other things. It sounds like you have a lot of projects on the go besides the cleaning, and I hope the camera will turn up so you can show us.-Joanne

That list of cleaning made me tired! But I do know how good it feels to sit down exhausted in a clean(er) house. I hope the camera turns up toon, I know I'd be lost blogging without mine.
