Summer Arrangement

Sorry it's been a while since I posted here. I've been so happy with the way things look that I haven't wanted to change it. I finally got bored and decided to rearrange the room, but keep my decor. I decided for summer I wanted it to look a little more casual, not so lined up, so I pulled the furniture more into the center of the room away from the windows a little and just sort of made a circle. I pulled the white shelves I have to the place behind the loveseat so it's the first thing you see when you come in. I feel it gives a summery look.

The second picture is where I have my quiet time in the morning.

Photos of Puttering

The first 3 are to tops of my kitchen cabinets. I took down the country stuff I had up there and tried to do something cleaner and with my kitchen color scheme.
The next one is a bunch of hydrangeas in my bathroom. I cleared off most of the stuff from the counter and just have a few chosen items out.
The last one is in the guest room. These sunflowers were taken off the top of the cabinets in the kitchen. For fake I think they look pretty good. Unfortunately I can't have real flowers in my house.

Housekeeping Book Pt 13-Printables

Organize Your Way has a couple of printables up that I'm going to add to my book and if you follow the link there are more. I've printed up several to try. I think they just make a list look neater, but of course you don't need them or you could make your own.

I'm trying the daily and weekly action plan sheets and also the address sheet for my service provider numbers. I also printed up the master to do list, a weekly menu plan that is by the meal rather than the day, and the daily to do list.

I also printed up the medical info sheet, but I'm not putting it in my housekeeping book. I want to keep this book just about housekeeping as much as possible and I want to do a health info book. I'm the queen of the binders, a binder for every interest. lol
