Sunday Scribblings "Mess"

Can you believe I received Birthday Flowers that match my kitchen?
My people know me well! Almost two weeks and they're still alive!
Of course I change the water every two days and cut them down...that's
the secret you know!!! Clean water....
 Sunday Scribblings prompt this week was " Mess" which until a few weeks ago
was ongoing since last september. It was difficult to say the least.
I will post more photos of the floor later. I bartered  labor starting this September when we will get tile laid in three bathrooms, the kitchen sink area, and the front entrance. 
The Mess

Shabby rugs and floors

from days of old

Reminiscent of

doggy footprints

and coffee spills

Paint splatters, crumbs

And other

Vacuum fugitives

A past well worn

Peaceful but

Not without struggle

Aloof mind

Wandering to

a creative corner

Of possibility




A dream of

Something novel

To rejuvenate the

Blasé eye

A mess ensues

Painfully pulling

Up the carpet

of memories

Salvaging bits

For recycle

Some expired

A sad waste

To be discarded

With the other

Rubbish of the past










Let design

Those flowers are impressive! You're far braver than I. When my old place requires a change, I turn the Roomba loose, dust the Nintendo and computer tower. :)

Well, if someone is paying attention they would get the flowers the same color as your kitchen. Why not.

I hope you get the mess behind you soon. Redoing is such fun, but the mess isn't.

Have a terrific day. :)

Our decorating Mess is still going on outside. Slowly, but surely! BTW, I saw a Soul up close today. Love it. Hope you are enjoying it!

Love the purple and lime green!! Re-doing anything in a house is such a mess but the end results are worth it.
