The Truth and Nothing But The Truth
Red is one of my favorite colors so I am posting in red today. While it is true I was up till all hours night before last and I awoke very early yesterday morning, I am afraid I fudged a little on yesterday's post. Much of it was fiction mixed in with a little truth. My friend Suzanne is an artist. She has painted some very special things for me in the past. She explained to me artists have the license to fudge on perspective, for the sake of the work. I love that concept. Soooooooooooooooooooo, I fudged. My husband is very happy with the looks of our house. He DID make the comment about his grandmother's house BUT the truth is, he liked his grandmother's house. Thank Goodness! If there is one area of life I would be hard pressed to compromise about it is interior decorating. He knew this from the get go, all those 28 years ago. My daughter, Amber, graduated just a few years ago with a degree in interior design. I must admit it is one of my favorite things to tell people. So favorite I might have mentioned it before and chances are you will read it again on my blog someday! You see, during her younger years, there were some very rough times---no lace involved. During this period, I can remember telling our family counselor she was nothing like me. He smiled and asked me if I really believed that---At the time, I did. But here we are, many, many, moons and years later. Not only did she get her degree but she graduated with honors. And so it is with honor that I say to all of you, Thank you for visiting me and just know there might be a little whimsy in a few of my posts. I like to mix things up a bit. If I am ever truly hurting, and I am posting, I will let you know it is the truth and nothing but the truth!
