So when I summon enough energy to unsubscribe to those retailers (online shopping is wonderful, and yet this is the result), that's what I will do. In the meantime, don't email my sympatico account, I'm not reading those ones.
In other news, when cleaning my grubby house, I took the chocolate brown curtains down to be washed. And rediscovered the lovely bright airiness of my downstairs. I don't think I'm putting them back up. I did foray to Target a week ago to see if they had any lighter curtains, they didn't have what I was looking for. Although I'm not sure the orange and white chevron I'm envisioning in my head is available anywhere. Maybe I can talk Rick into coming to Ikea with me. I live in a subdivision so no curtains isn't really an option, I need some kind of window coverings. Ikea might be my best bet. Cheap. Or I might need to stoop to actually sewing some. I think it's safe to say that is not really the best option. Sewing raises my blood pressure to near stroke levels. Fingers crossed that somewhere will have just what I'm looking for.
I've also decided this morning that I need to buy a "vintage" trailer to redo, and then put on a lake somewhere on a seasonal site. Vintage really means old. But made to look adorable with paint and imagination. Look on Pinterest. You'll see what I'm talking about. Has to be a trailer, Rick won't go tent camping anymore. I say Rick, but what I really mean is that we are too old and decrepit to get up off the ground in the morning when we sleep in tents. For real. But the real deal is that I need to be in nature. Near water. Nothing soothes the soul or lowers blood pressure like looking out at the lake in the early morning.
Lunch with my sister and nephews today, meaning I need to kick my butt into gear so I get there on time. Enjoy summer friends, it's too fleeting to be thinking about fall yet.
