Anyhoo, the day after my post I woke with a bee in my bonnet and it has been there ever since. It is a good bee mind you...it has me moving again and making things happen, even if only little things. I realized that I have been waiting for my kids to get a bit older before I make my home what I really want it to be...which is silly really because my girls are good, and don't make a habit of ruining things (at least not on purpose) so keeping nice things at bay is not really a necessity at this point.
So in the last few days I finished the shoe rack for the front hall and put it in place finally managing to contain our ever growing shoe collection (we like shoes...my husband included).
|these chairs have been around since my early childhood...|
they were originally orange vinyl and were recovered about 25 years ago.
In addition to the above I went through all of the girl's clothes, packed away what is too small, shifted things from Izzy's drawers to Lilah's and figured out what Izzy may need for the fall and winter. I cleaned out the front hall closet as well, and put the spare room back together. I have been a busy little bee.
I realized that this was all stuff I had intended to do all summer but kept putting off...well this was the last week of summer as it were and so I think that got me going as well. I even cooked a meal or two along the way (which is good since Jake normally does all the cooking around here), and did every stitch of laundry in the house and put it all away.
Slowly it is all coming together...not sure I will ever get to the point in my original inspiration board
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend...it is a long one here in Canada! Off to enjoy it with the best family a girl could ask for...and the most patient husband...bless his heart.
