Getting the House Ready for Book Club
My book club met at my house last night. This month we read, "The House at Riverton" by Kate Morton. Great read and everyone seemed to like it. From previous posts, you know that my house is in chaos because of our basement finishing project.
So I did the following to make it more presentable. I hung disposable table cloths all along my main hallway to cover up all of the stuff I am storing in my front room.
Made homemade eclairs for the book club dessert. The recipe is posted here.
I bought some flowers for my kitchen table. I will likely plant those mums outside later.
I covered our "camping-out" mattresses with a blue blanket.
I bought the movie, "The Princess and the Frog" for these two menaces to watch while I cleaned my house. It worked. They were entranced with the movie.
Meanwhile, my basement progress looks like this. My husband is not going to like that I posted this picture. He is explaining to me why he is happy with the way they hung the louvers on the washing machine/dryer door.
And because the basement floor looks like this, every night, I take a wet towel and have to wipe clean all of my wood floors upstairs. That white dust is EVERYWHERE!
Cute picture of toothsome #4's feet in the white dust. So dang cute.
The painters come Monday.
