A Tale of Two (C)ities Charles Dickens….
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…
This challenge is turning out exactly like I thought it was going to go considering all of the distractions and anxiety outside my front door, and the world. Try as I may, I’m an obsessor (is that even a word ??? Did I spell it right ???) I’ll check later, I digress back to my letter (C).
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…I have to be honest, I never read the book. I’m just married to a man who is a library and a scholar and knows everything about everything !!! I remember when we first started dating (100 years ago 😉 ) he always had a book and was always reading. A college boy (Northwestern University, The Harvard of the Midwest) at least that was his mother always said. Sorry back to my letter (C).
Yesterday’s post I put up a picture of my beautius planner, Mz. Serena. Then I got a comment on how very organized my schedule appeared. She also said she had to stay to a strict/tight schedule or chaos would rule her life…I told her to come back today and I would show her my reality these days. They say a picture is worth 1000 words. I let it do the talking for me 😉 . This is how my planning area has imploded since the husband has been here, “Working from home…”
I also put up a picture of Mz. Serena..Isn’t she beautius and so organized…
This is what Mz. Serena looked like before I did my layout…
Stay with me now. Remember my title for this post has a purpose. The top pictures are pictures of my, “Dining Room,” i.e. planning area. Now I know what you are all thinking, but in my defense we are in uncharted territory in the country and now with my husband home every single day !!! I just gave up… Here is where a tale of the two cities come in. The above pictures are of my dining room aka planner area which is right next to my living room. These tell a completely different story.
These areas are literally in the same space and are divided by what use to be my desk until the husband stole it 😦
There you have it, “A Tale of Two Cities ❤ ”
It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done. It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known 😉 .
Happy Spring, Hello Weekend Blessings AtoZer’s ❤
PS…I’m going to get it all back to normal as part of my Spring Cleaning (if that is ever going to happen 😉 ) It’s so much easier to create in a space that is calm…I’ll do before/after pics, day by day with the AtoZ Challenge. It will be beautiful when I’m done ❤ .
