That's our situation---two households' worth of stuff in a small house. How well you understand!

Clutter is what happens when you enjoy good books, music, and movies. The libraries have to go somewhere! Knickknacks don't have much of a chance in our house, because our shelves are all used for storage, not decoration.

that is what causes my clutter too, mostly books. But when I get into doing cakes, then the clutters is all kinds of stuff to do with decorating. It takes over my kitchen and is not something that can be put away every night, especially when there is more than one cake to do .

Good evening,

I am heading to bed soon, my wife and I just watched a mini-marathon of a show called Impractical Jokers. It is on TruTV and it is hilarious. It is about 4 best friends who try to embarrass the heck out of each other. That show and Sullivan & Son have been my favorite shows of the summer. I can't believe football season has started and hockey training camps opens next week. the winter sports are upon us and Christmas is right around the corner.

Good night everyone.

I picked up some yarn to begin my reversible afghan, and picked up some more yarn for another one. The second yarn is a milk chocolate brown, a turquoise skein (Aruba Sea), and a variegated yarn that is a combination of dark chocolate brown, the milk chocolate brown and the turquoise (Earth and Sky).

What a nice evening!!

Very pretty yarn!!

If I can figure out a way to do it without revealing household clutter, you may get your wish ...
So frustrating.
Hope you can have a relaxing weekend, friend.

Hope you feel better soon, Seawaters. ((Hugs))

Soon, soon, soon it will be ornament exchange time!!! YAY!!! I have to get the perfect ornament for the perfect person! Can hardly wait.
Have a delicious dinner!!

I am participating in the ornament exchange this year for the first time. So exciting!!
