I'm no royalist but I do love a good spectacle so I'll be setting the alarm tonight to get up and watch William's wedding in the morning, just as I did for his mother's...what seems like yesterday. Once every 30 or so years doesn't sound like excessive, obsessive behavior to me, is it? And how few positive spectacles are there anymore, really?
I'm living in my own little world here lately. M's been working at the new location and after several unanticipated delays, we finally got the house listed for sale this week so the parade has begun. Today was the second of two realtors' open houses, which brought lots of agents through with plans to bring clients to tour in the next few days. We've had some showings already, too.
***Just as I typed the above, the doorbell rang. When I opened the door, there stood a realtor and a family of five...three kids, about 8-12 (shudder). I hadn't received any information about an appointment, but I asked for 5 minutes, scurried around picking up a few things and reassembling the living room after my little Kate & Wills photo shoot (above). I cringed at the thought of three kids running through the place and sure enough, after they left and I returned, things of mine had been moved to different rooms, bedroom drawers had been opened(!) and they had been on all of my beds!! Honestly, I just hate this whole process. I try to go with the flow but it's all quite stressful. Make me an offer and I'm out of here.
One good thing about having the house almost totally pristine is that now I have nothing but time and I'm champing at the bit to get back to my quilting. And blogging. And reading blogs and catching up with online friends, all things that have been sorely neglected in recent months and much missed! I have several new projects ready to go and a number of things to share and expound upon (uh-oh) so I will be back once I recover from the wedding festivities.
Speaking of which, isn't that a great piece above? I love commemorative items, especially when they are well designed, and although I have no particular interest in royal weddings (though, of course, I wish them both the best...*wink*), the text and graphics on this mug proved irresistible.
Pip, pip, cheerio!
