and the Living is Easy

After checking out a few decorating blogs, and seeing a a post about Summer Table-scapes, I rolled my eyes.  I see the beauty and art in a table-scape, but right now I hear vocalizations because the peanut butter is "DISGUSTING".  Apparently it's a little off.   Who has time for table-scapes?  My boy with autism has lost his schedule.  He loves schedules.   And I, by association, love schedules, too, now.    If you parent a child with autism summer can be difficult, as written about eloquently by Sunday Stillwell

Having said that, one of the decorating blogs led me to this post which I think will be important for me to pay attention to this summer.  Emily at Chatting At the Sky wrote about  Ten Ways to Make Art in Less Than An Hour.   I think I can do that.  And go to the lake as much as schedules allow.

My favorite tablescape? Piles of fabric all over the dining room table. Well, that's my story & I'm sticking to it.

Bless your heart...Dixie, I truly have no idea what you must go through. I raised four kids but they all took off and have their lives now. Table-scapes always sort of cracked me up. I'd love to be able to FIND my table under all the stuff we pile on it.

I came home with a nice thrift shop tablecloth a few weeks ago. The husband took one look at its intended recipient, and said "Seriously?"

Enjoy the lake.
