Yesterday it was beautiful and Mac snapped some photos of the Bee trees in bloom. Don't know its real name, but it definitely attracts the bees.
The rose bush started life as a miniature rose bush from Walmart. It blooms its little head off every year. The blooms are single and don't have a lot of smell, but you have to appreciate their vigor.
Today it was dark and gloomy so more housework was in line. Got the floor in the family room waxed, that just leaves the entryway and our bedroom. The dining room has a wood floor too, but no one ever goes in there so all it needs is to be Swiffered from time to time. I swear, in our next house if it has a formal dining room I'm going to turn it into a library, then we'll use it. The tv room upstairs, and it's a huge room, has a wood floor too
, but we haven't been up there in awhile so all it needs is a good Swiffering too.
In the living room yesterday I ended up, sad to say, doing a bunch of dusting and polishing of furniture. Didn't want to, but health and sanity concerns made me do it. I foolishly read up online about household dust, what it consists of (dried food particles, mold spores, pollen, fabric fibers, animal dander, insect parts including dust mites ----a real allergy source) and of course mildew is always a problem living in a swamp as we do. So much time was spent cleaning baseboards and the wood furniture.
I need to go and find something fun to do.
