Concerning comments left on the previous entry

Those of you who think I'm "neat and organized"... folks, I'm a slob by nature.  But I met the Flylady a couple of months ago, and she really has helped me.  I'd encourage any of you to check her out.  Cliff is still telling everybody he knows about the changes around here (and wonders if I'm having an affair, he says).  My dish drainer used to always sit on the counter, full of clean dishes (I don't have a dishwasher).  The sink was usually at least half full of dirty dishes.  Not now!  I have Flylady in my favorite sites, if you'd like to check her out.  I'm sixty years old; if she can teach this old dog some new tricks, she can teach anyone.  Someone else mentioned that it looks like I have a place to eat near the computer... well of course, it's in my kitchen!  This old two-story house has six rooms, a hall, and a bathroom; but we live in the three downstairs rooms.  And they aren't really big rooms.  We had the computer in the living room for awhile, but I prefer it in the kitchen, which was my favorite room long before the Internet came into my life.

While I'm here, let me show you what Cliff's up to, until time to go to work at 2:30.  The engine he's been overhauling is back in the Farmall M, and he took her on a trial run this morning.

 She's not very pretty with her innards exposed like that, but she sounds great.  That's our house and Cliff's shop in the background.

Great for Cliff! I just wanted to thank you for introducing me to Flylady. I am getting there slowly but surely.

Hi Mosie....your farm and your husband's tractor are almost identical to the farm and tractor I had in Michigan...the house was 100 years old, and a 5BR/2BA.
I was very upset when it was sold, and still miss it to this day...it was sold in 1974, and I divorced him in 1979....just really couldn't handle his it had to be his way or no way.

Oh, I love your house.  
So what do you have in the upper rooms?  Spare Bedrooms?  Storage?
