TUESDAY 4

 Welcome to Tuesday 4, Toni Taddeo's once weekly questionnaire...

 This week's topic is home....

1.What makes a house a home?

I like family pictures around the house. Furniture that you love along with furniture that has been passed down to us. Dinner time. I think a dog too and I pray I can get one soon. 

2. How to you keep your house neat , tidy and clean? Do you find it difficult?

The house is usually in order, I try to keep it up each day. However, because of my COPD I cannot do what I used to do. Mark helps out when he can with some of the deeper cleaning projects. 

I need a smaller house! 

3. Are plants important in your home.. or collections.. or wall art?  Is there a theme you like to create?

Yes, plants are important in my home and yes I have collections of Jim Shore and Willow Tree and I have a wall of canvas photos from trips. 


What is a typical day/evening like in your home?

We get up and have coffee. Mark goes on his computer and I watch a Hallmark movie in my office. I used to start my day on the computer but just haven't been able to since the lock down started. We discuss what we want to eat for dinner so I can take some meat out of the freezer. 

I haven't been feeling well lately so I haven't kept up with some things. Mark goes for a walk and then loves to work in the yard. We usually watch something together after dinner and then he watches the shows he recorded on his DVR in the family room and I go to watch mine on my DVR in my office. We go to bed around 11 pm.

Thank you Anne.

For the most part, my house is neat but I don't do deep cleaning like I used to.

I think we are all the same - I keep things neat - but I don't deep clean like I used to either - just not that important.
I love your wall of canvas - that is so unique.

I think your house is probably a whole lot cleaner than my house. I know you clean by room sometimes and you clean all your collections that's the main reason I don't have any collections as I don't like to dust. I'm trying to think what makes a home a home. I think what makes a home a home to me is that it's always the same place I don't really care where it is or what city or state but I want a place that is mine that I can be in every night and in the same place. A place that I can have my rituals and my habits and keep them the same so I'm going to say habits and rituals in the same place every night make my home a home plus having the three of us in one spot and that includes of course the dog

I hope you feel better soon!

I am sorry you arent feeling well and I hope you feel better soon.
As I get older I find I can do less deep cleaning but I keep things picked up and neat.

I hope you start feeling better soon. My apartment is sometimes neat, sometimes not. It's my playpen so it depends on what I'm engaged in. It's a happy place.

Sure hope you get to feeling better. I'm usually sewing and hubby is watching Tv. I like your wall of pictures.

Love your photo wall, Debby! I didn't know you were thinking about getting another furbaby; that's exciting!
Feel better soon!

My husband also has COPD.
We share the inside household chores.

I enjoyed reading your answers, seems you have a pleasant routine with hubby. COPD does slow us down that's for sure. Hope you feel better soon.

Anne in the kitchen said...

I hope you feel much better quickly. Love reading you answers! I am looking forward to closing on Mom's house so I can finally concentrate on mine.

I think what makes a house a home is having things you love in it. Not magazine-perfect, but reminders of your family and experiences.
