In OTHER News....Seeing Double?

Yay! Two Martha Stewart Housekeeping books for me!!! Okay, I did return one....

Here's how it happened:

My birthday is February 10th, and my friend was so generous and bought me Martha Stewart's Housekeeping Handbook for my birthday. While it was in the mail.....my boyfriend bought me another book at the bookstore for Valentine's Day! There's more to the funny story, but I'll save everyone the lengthy funny.

I really wanted this book after visiting Mrs. U and grabbing her book off the coffee table every time she turned around.

Mrs. U: "I'll be right back, I hear Miss. E"
Me: "Take your time..." [reaching for the Martha Stewart book]

Now I have my own! It's filled with so many wonderful tips and guides for every room in your house! I love my book, it's like having an instruction manual for all my housekeeping questions! Do not be surprised if I share some of her tips from this book with you!!

Thank you, Mrs. U and Jonathan!

Only you will appreciate this comment.

Turn to page 394 titled "How to finish cleaning your room."

I look forward to it as I have never gotten the chance to see this book in person!

Many Blessings,

Hi Melissa!!!!
You are such a kind friend. I know that you will find this book as useful as I have. It is wonderful!!! And I can't wait to hear what tips you share from Martha!!! I haven't read the book in its entirety, I've just used it as a resource. So I am sure there are many wonderful tidbits that I've overlooked so far!!

Blessings my sweet friend!

Mrs. U

Melissa: This book is going to be very helpful as a quick reference. Although, I think I could read it for pleasure too! :D

Mrs. U: I've been watching Martha Stewart DVDs while walking on the treadmill. One would think that that would be disastrous, looking at food while exercising.....sometimes it is!

Mrs. U said...

Hmmm... I would think looking at food while exercising would be excellent motivation!! More exercising = more food!!

HAHAHHA!!

Mrs. U

I enjoy this book, too. I didn't want to give it back to the library, but I haven't got my own copy yet.

Have you seen Home Comforts by Cheryl Mendelson? It is just as fascinating.

Looks like a great book! I will have to put it on my wish list.

I'm so glad I found your blog. I am following you now and would love to have you follow me back.

Have a wonderful day!
Blessings
