On Tuesdays, when I actually remember it is Tuesday I follow Annie @Tuesday 4. This weeks questions are all about home. Come on and play along.
1.What makes a house a home?
Mainly the people in it, though I will have to admit familiar things make my house my home. Sneaky Jorge (the chimpanzee butler) at my front door says home to me along with a few other treasured items. (My piano, my pillows, my favorite knife. . .things that are not easily replaced.)
2. How to you keep your house neat , tidy and clean? My house has not been neat and tidy in over a year. I am still overwhelmed by things from the lake and also excess from Mom's house. We close on her house Friday and after that I am starting in earnest on mine, including giving away at least 100 things from the house this month.
Do you find it difficult?
I don't find it hard, but I detest housework. There are just so many other things I had rather be doing.
3.Are plants important in your home.. or collections.. or wall art? I am a serial plant killer without meaning to be. I can keep outdoor plants alive all year, but give me an indoor plant and I am guilty of involuntary herbicide.
I am very picky about what I hang in my house. I love faces and music related art and have it throughout the house. I do have an unintentional monkey collection that I am slowly and surely paring down.
Is there a theme you like to create?
It is not so much of a theme as it is just things that make me happy and smile.
4.What is a typical day/evening like in your home?
I am not sure I have a typical day. The past three or four years have been driven by seeing about Mom or taking care of her house. Ask me the week after the house sale closes, then I will have a better idea of what my new normal is.
Our Covid inspired evenings are pretty much the same. We watch either an episode from a series or we watch a movie. Then we read.
I have found a new guilty pleasure. I have been watching old YouTube videos of What's My Line and I've Got A Secret. I have no idea why or how I stumbled onto them but it is like wandering through a television museum.
