Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Dust, Glorious Dust--Clean It If You Must (sung to "Food Glorious Food)

Again, thanks tshsmom! I don't know why the pictures that were with the original e mail didn't copy, but the words are great all by themselves!

Remember...a layer of dust protects the Wood beneath it.

"A house becomes a home when you can write "I love you" on the furniture."

I can't tell you how many countless hours that I have spent CLEANING!

I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect -- "in case someone came over." Then I realized one day that no-one came over; they were all out living life and having fun!
Now, when people visit, I find no need to explain the "condition" of my home. They are more interested in hearing about the things I've been doing while I was away living life and having fun. If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice. Life is short. Enjoy it!

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better
to paint a picture or write a letter,
bake a cake or plant a seed,
ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there's not much time,
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb,
music to hear and books to read,
friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world's out there
with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
a flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go -- and go you must --
you, yourself will make more dust!

Share this with all the wonderful people in your life!


It's not what you gather, but what you scatter
that tells what kind of life you have lived.

    I have a very smart aunt in her 80's who told me "no one ever died from too much dust in the house." I've taken her advice to heart. I dust only when I invite friends over.

    Mybrid, welcome! Your aunt was indeed smart! I only have one aunt, I love her to pieces, and she says that if folks are worried about her housekeeping, she doesn't need to see them.

    Bless them both!

    I do it when I have the energy....lol
