In My Home This Week: Dreaming of Things to Come
I am contemplating the changes new flooring will bring. I've been looking at pillow covers today on Amazon (hard not to consider them when they will cover existing pillows for under $5), that will bring more colors into the room. I am discussing a custom piece of artwork with Katie for the gallery wall. Changes, changes, changes. Gracious there's an air of change here!
I didn't get much done in the house this past week. It is staying so very clean of late. I am pretty sure it's because it's simply hot here still. I am so looking forward to cooler air! I don't want to move too much indoors and haven't done a thing outdoors. But it's more than that hot weather. We are not messing the house up very much at all. I'm not sure quite what that is all about. It may be because John keeps moving things away from the wall and cleaning under them. He bought more of those handy furniture gliders this week. Now every big hulking big piece of furniture we have has them permanently under their feet. We have spare sets to put under the smaller pieces we can easily lift. These things are so very handy!
Anyway, the need to not do housework left me plenty of time to finish up some posts last week. Hopefully this means I'll have a bit more content up for the next few weeks. I stayed busy enough just the same. I don't seem to have gotten very much done in the leisure department, but I did get a haircut. I spent a lot longer than anticipated in a new salon getting my hair done. Oh the joy of having your hair come out exactly right! I told John it was so fun to hand the stylist the photo I wanted my hair to look like and then I watched it take shape on me. I felt as though I could have floated out of the door. I managed to finish another creative project, a short table runner that is fall inspired. I am waiting until we're done with all the moving before I put it out.
Gracious! September will be over this week. I must start planning for October goals. I wonder how far I'll manage to go with my September goals? New floors, cool air, dreaming up things for the month ahead....
