I had to kind of dig deep this week, y’all! Not that it’s been a bad week by any means. Pretty quiet, in fact. But we’re scrambling to finish up things around the house, especially before the basement people come next week. It has me in a tizzy! But I’ll keep pressing on and focus on the progress and the good things this week…!
(Clockwise from top left) 1) Progress is happening on the baker’s rack. I’m still unsure of the final result…keep making mental changes along the way, but haven’t decided yet if I’ll actually change anything. I do love that beautiful turquoise, and can’t wait to get it in the kitchen and start accessorizing! At a minimum I have to paint more, distress and wax. 2) A couple daycare kids and I enjoyed a walk this morning. Absolutely beautiful, cool day (windows open…aaahhhh). Looking forward to more of those! 3) Fall decorations are mostly up, but have a few holes to fill. It will have to wait until after the kitchen gets completed and the basement is cleared out, but I have some ideas! Something about a new season, especially fall since school means a new year of sorts, that makes you ready for a fresh start! I can feel my drive and motivation returning! 4) What started out as a sad morning (seriously, like 911, call the paramedics, she needs an IV kind of morning) turned back around after I finally had my coffee. (I know you know what I mean.) I went to the store…just to buy creamer…and forgot the bag there. I didn’t realize until I was home unloading kids, and since it was bottle/naptime for Mya we didn’t turn around to go back. (Read: I didn’t want to load, unload, reload, and unload kids again.) I called the store and will get it later, and in the meantime used raw cacao, Stevia drops, cinnamon and heavy cream. I got my caffeine and it actually tasted pretty good. 😉 5) Read this magazine cover-to-cover after it came in the mail yesterday, and have so much great info now to boost my blog to the next level. Time’s still a bit of an issue for me, but I’m going to do what I can and now that school’s been in session a couple weeks, try to get a work routine going for everything that I need to do. I’ve been so overwhelmed with lack of time that the blog has been in a rut (it’s ok…I know it…you can tell me ;)), but I’m excited to get back on track and implement new information and ideas!
I hope to return Monday with a finished kitchen (oh LORD, please!), but I have two organizing appointments tomorrow (yay!) and the in-laws are coming to help get the basement ready for wall repair on Sunday, so time (as usual lately) will be minimal. I really, really, really want the kitchen done before we do anything with the basement, though, so I’m going to do my darndest! We shall see!
