Do you see any Rulers of the House in my photos from yesterday?











Here’s what I find when I search YouTube for “Rulers of the House”:

More rulers of the house:

I love the way Jewel Gilchrist rules her house.

Christine BaranskiMeryl Streep, and Audra McDonald are Rulers of the House in this version of “The Ladies Who Lunch” (from the 90th birthday celebration for Stephen Sondheim):

If you want to be one of the Rulers of the House of Living Non-Judgmentally, please leave a comment below.

As always, the rules of this house include expressing gratitude for all those in my life with hearts of gold, including YOU.

  1. Whoever pushes the vacuum or makes supper is the ruler of our house, at least for that hour. But our cat is always in command

  2. The cat wins every time! Meowvellous!

  3. Straight-edge or tape measure, Ann.

  4. puella33

    I can tell the ruler in your house is he love and respect of all living beings in and out of your house. That’s the way it should be. Have a nice Sunday, Ann

  5. I don’t know if our dogs could really be said to rule the house, but I do try to teach them rules like, “If you need to go out please ask.” I do know that Baranski, Streep, McDonald, and, of course, Sondheim all rule.

  6. Does my house have rules?????????????
    If so I have no idea what they are……………

  7. at your house, i’d say your hearts are the rulers. and your cats.

  8. In my experience, animals and children often rule, with servants who are masters of the house.

  9. Me and my girls are rulers of the house. LOL! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ( ᐛ )و∠( ᐛ 」∠)_

  10. Of course, little tigers.
