Real Life

Hi everyone. No terrible news here. I was just trying to think of something to blog about, and not much has been happening here. Lots of things falling apart at the same time. You know that rule of threes? My pleated soft shade broke in the bedroom. This is our beautiful new custom window treatment. lol. I have to give a shout out to Levolor Blinds. Turns out it was under 10 year warranty and they are shipping us a new one for free. Excellent customer service! Waiting for delivery.
 No cute craft projects. Sons boxes are stacked in the craftroom for the summer. I don't love the boxes, but do love having son home for a little while.
 Got half an order of matchstick blinds for the breakfast nook. I had to argue with Home Depot and UPS that they only delivered 2 out of 4 boxes. We'll see how that one plays out. Still waiting.
 My 2 leather chairs are falling apart and have ordered new chairs and am still waiting on those.
 Our garage door had a run in with the tailgate of my open van. The tailgate won. I won't go into my garage door saga-just know it was so frustrating it's almost funny. Still waiting on that.
This isn't a feel sorry for me post-just being real here. So I'm in a state of waiting for things to get delivered or fixed. Can't wait to get back on track!
On a pretty note-roses from Hubby. I had eye surgery over the past 2 weeks-nothing major, but getting used to new lenses and new reading glasses etc.
 My sweet potato vine is going crazy by the front door.
It's hotter then heck here in Dallas. It's been a rough week here and around the country. I hope people start coming together soon. 
I thought I'd leave you with a  video that I took in Seattle. Snoqualmie Falls looks so cooling and inviting. Sorry-I still haven't figured out how to turn the video. If anyone knows-please let me in on the secret.
Hope your week goes well.


  1. HI Leslie! Glad your eye surgery went well. Isn't that the way it seems to go? Sorry about all your home boo boos and hope all your issues get resolved. Love your pretty potato vine. I've never grown one before. Sorry about the hot heat in Texas! I don't miss it at all! :) Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Thanks, Shelia. It does seem to go that way-but gotta look on the bright side of things. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy playing with your dollhouse!

  3. That was sweet of your hubby to give your some beautiful yellow roses after your eye surgery, Leslie. I'm glad that the surgery went well! Thanks for sharing how real it is around your house. We all go through those times, don't we? Hope Home Depot pulls through with the missing blinds. At least you have two new chairs to look forward to! Yea!!

    1. Yes, he's a sweetie. It sure is real around here, and I can't wait to start cleaning things up.Have a great weekend, Kitty!

  4. Hi Leslie, Real times are going on here too. Waiting for things to be completed or arrive in the mail is always frustrating. In the end all will be fabulous. Love the gorgeous yellow roses you received from your dear hubby. So sweet of him and I am so glad your surgery is over and you are doing well.
    Hope the blinds come through. Your potato vines are going great. The purple makes a flower in the fall. It's so pretty!!
    Great to see the rain this morning!! Have a great weekend. Hugs

  5. There is definitely a lot of reality happening all around us right now. I wish I could hide away from it all, or shield my youngest from it all. Hugs!

  6. I've had my share of things breaking down around here as well! I was 6 weeks without a fridge waiting for the extended warranty people to figure out what was wrong with it! It is finally fixed...thankfully! I have school stuff sitting in my craft room floor and it is a mess! I just keep the door! The roses and your plants are lovely! Glad your eye surgery went well. Have a wonderful week!

  7. bless your heart...when it rains, it pours...been there, done that...
    things will straightened out sooner or later so hang in there.
    What a sweetie your sweetie is for bringing you roses...what would we do without our fellas..?

  8. Hi Leslie! I hope things are going better at your place. I do hope you'll show us your little Sweet Shop again. Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
