Today is just one of those days

 Theres-No-Place-Like-Home-Print-I10095242 when you don't want to do anything, but at home.  I ask Michael last night if we could just stay home this morning instead of getting out.  So few Saturday mornings we stay home, because we normally get out to go to yard sales or such in the summer time.  But all week I have been thinking about staying home and getting caught up on getting some computer stuff done and just relaxing.  Actually going to read some more of my book in a little bit.

I have added a whole batch of new links to Home Simple Home, for weeks now I have been finding some new places that I just love.  country magazinesSeveral are very inspirational for home decorating and I can just sit  and gaze at the pictures for what seems like hours. Kinda like I do my country magazines. Which I need to go through and dispose of some, and organize the others.  That has been on my to do list for awhile.  I might actually do it tonight while watching tv. 

While I sitting here this morning and cruising the net I found many things that I would love to do....but when I saw this I new I needed to do these things first, so that I will not forget what it is I would like to do.  Wink  First, I think I need to create myself a mood board.  Do you know what a mood board is?  It is a board that you simple put all your loves on.  moodboard There are several at Decor 8. As well as create myself a decorating binder.  decorator binder See this is the kind of things I do when I have time.  I get creative and want to do things.  Guess I could carry this binder a little further and make it my "dream home binder".  How fun is that? 

Let's see what else is going on with me.  My eyes are doing great. I can't tell you the difference the enhancement done for me.  I highly recommend it if you aren't completely happy with your Lasik procedure.  Don't get me wrong I am so glad that I had the procedure done, but apparently my right eye was only doing about 70% of what it was suppose to be doing.  Even at that, that was much better than what I had seen my whole life.  So wasn't complaining, but still wanted to try for better.  So like I said...I am very happy with the outcome.

Last night Michael and I met up with some friends and went to play basket bingo.  And I didn't win a thing.  Actually no one at our table did.  Boo Hoo...but it was for a good cause so hopefully all the money I spent wasn't for waste. basket bingo I wanted to give you a idea of what a basket bingo is like.  You usually pay to play 20 games with 20 baskets filled (like these in the picture) and if you win the game you get the basket.  They normally have special games where you have to buy extra cards to play which brings in basket bingo1lots more money.  The room is usually packed.... below kinda gives you a idea of how the game rooms are set up and how serious the women are that play.   Now these aren't from any bingo's I have actually gone too, but they are the same.  Basket bingo is taken seriously here.  Usually these are played as a type of fundraiser for a family in need, a school program that needs sponsored, etc.  It brings in lots of money at one time. Now you know the rest of the story.

Well, I have been working on this post for a while, but my phone keeps ringing so will close.  Hope you all have a great rest of the day.

Hi Cindy! I have many Saturdays that I just want to 'hibernate' at home - especially with it being so hot here now. I love those lazy days or catch up days at home.

So glad that your eyes are doing much better. I wish I had the nerve to get the lasik, but I am too chicken.

I want to come & just spend a day visiting all your sites that you have listed. I have found some wonderful sites through you! Thank you for sharing them.

Have a wonderful week. Hugs!!
