An impromptu Memorial Day get-together saw me playing host and consequently scrambling to tidy my house and yard. Inside, things went into closets, laundry stayed in the dryer and the bathroom sink got wiped down with a tissue. Outside, the helicopters were swept off the porch, the most obvious weeds were pulled and twigs that posed a tripping hazard were corralled.
When it comes to me as hostess, fooling the guests is all that matters.
No patio table? No problem. How about part of an industrial shelving unit and place mats, instead? Fooled!
Croquet is OK! And, my, that flower bed looks positively weed-free. Fooled!
