Sorely Need a Decorator

I came home and unloaded the groceries (or "saved them" as we say down South), and then walked to the door to take Daisy for her walk. And it occurred to me right then and there that I need a decorator, or at least take some lessons on what NOT to hang on the inside of your front door! A basket with dog leash and poop bags!!! My mother would have been mortified!! ROFLOL

The cool day yesterday didn't last. It was much warmer today and I think it's supposed to be plumb hot tomorrow. But I don't mind so much this week. I just keep thinking about the three-day weekend coming up! I really need that extra day of R&R! I'm so excited that I can hardly stand to be in the same room with myself! Three whole days! I need to start planning out what I'm going to get accomplished quilty-wise. Don't want to waste a minute! I already know Friday morning I'm going to put a roast in the crock pot. That will take care of most of the cooking over the weekend!

Had to terminate a young plant worker today. I was hoping he was going to make it because I thought he was real nice and he was working hard. Well, it turns out he has temper issues, and it wasn't a real good idea to curse out the plant manager. Nope, that's never a good idea. Meetings both days this week. One more tomorrow, and then it's countdown to the weekend! :)

Ya know Vicky, as a dog owner, I totally see why you'd have those essentials right where you can grab them and go. OK, so it's not so high on the decorating scale, but this is a transition time and place, right?? I say, you got leeway..*VBS*

Really, really have a wonderful few days off over the weekend, and do whatever the spirit moves you to do, you deserve it!! Hugs, Finn

I think it's the PERFECT place for leashes and poop bags!! :) :)

I am excited for the weekend also. I always make these long lists I can never quite finish, but have fun trying. How's Daisy's back? Have you tried MSM or glucosamine on her?

as another dog owner-I say that is the perfect place-who sees the back of the door all that much? We have a built in cabinet with all that stuff inside..but we used to have a "dog stand" with a basket of all that before :-) Hurray for 3 days of doing as you please! hope you have a blast every second of it.

Haha, I have a peg rack inside my back door with a basket for bags and the various leashes and collars, and keys.
Yup, hotter today!

at least the basket is pretty--no matter what the contents might be. I wouldn't let things like that bother me but we cannot help but hear our mother's voices in our ears, can we?

Now saved up is not a saying I have heard used around here--yet, LOL.

I always lost my keys until I put a big hook right next to the door. Seems like a handy and logical place to put your leash/bags. Guess I am too practical to be a good decorator. Bet your doggie knows right where that leash is too!

Enjoy your long weekend.
