SPF: Stuff

I remember a skit from Saturday Night Live where the gal who did the Delta, Delta, Delta sketch was questioning the campaigning Bill Clinton about where her stuff was. She wanted her stuff and wanted to know when/how he was going to give it to her. It was making fun of his Mtv tour he did and how the dufus college kids were just that: giant dufuses (or is that dufi?) But, I digress. The lovely and neurotic Kristine at Random and Odd is getting rid of her stuff that has been stacking up and assigned our Stuff Portrait Friday: stuff. Whatever our stuff is.
The stuff I feel defines me well is my garden. I love to work in my garden. Tje irises you see in the first photo are some I grew from bulbs sent to me from ArmyWife ToddlerMom. I had blogged about wanting some tulips or something she was growing and she sent me several bulbs. I planted them in my front garden and got this gorgeous multi-colored iris, which is a totally new color for me. I'm so excited.
Unfortunately, I don't make the time to do it as much as I'd like. What I feel like TRULY defines me is the massive piles of laundry that are always around. You can see clean laundry all around. Then, there is the ash from the fireplace (we actually had fires this past weekend) that needs to be cleaned up. There is a topless GI Joe by the basket and by my big bag o' bills. Yippee skippee, that is me most of the time. Photo by Pickle. So, did you play?

    Laundry...it is EVERYWHERE!! And I'm the only one that can seem to do it. Last night I did two loads, and you could hardly tell. The floor of the laundry room contains four mountains of clothes. The living room floor contains seven batches of folded piles...one for each family member then a batch of towels/washrags and a batch of kitchen towels/potholders/etc.

    It never ever EVER ends. Then there's the Great Sock Divide.

    That looks a lot like my laundry. Two or three loads a day, most days. No one warns you about that.

    I played.

    love love love your garden....

    There are only three of us home now, and I still do at least one load a day. When I switch sheets and towels, add two to three to that!

    I played.

    happy friday

    Beautiful irises -- I think it's great when other people have the green thumb that I don't have. ;-) As for the laundry, I can remember those days so well, when there were 5 of us at home. Now it's just me and the cats, and laundry day still finds me with baskets to do. But at least it's not never-ending, like it was when the boys and Steve were home. Thanks for stopping by!
