In My Home This Week: Dreaming of Things to Come

In my home this week...

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....

I plan meals:

Roast Beef Sandwiches, Chips, Grapes

on my own x 2

Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti, Green Salad, Garlic Toast

Shepherd's Pie, Tossed Salad, Baked Apples

grocery deli day

Polska Kielbasa, Sweet and Sour Cabbage, Pierogies


I plan my work:


Finish sewing up aprons I cut out.

Buy mulch, landscape blocks, and paint to finish September projects.  Finish September projects.

Purchase mums and fall plants for planters.  PLANT.

Pack up all books and files.  Get them stacked out of the way.  Clean under small bookcases and file cabinet.

Harvest week:  Paycheck, bills, errands, groceries.

Try to alter a pair of pants to fit. 

Set up 7-10 days of outfits.

Get book review written and posted.

Put hand fans in handy spots on front and back porch.  Gnats are fierce right now.

Make more pupsicles.  Heated days make them necessary for Maddie.

Work on October goals.


I plan leisure:

Take morning coffee on the front porch.

Watch sunset if it's nice enough to be out at that hour.

Genealogy work.

Spa Morning.

Funny story-I had loaded our son's Ohio location in my weather app since we are going to visit them this weekend. This AM I looked at the temp to know what to wear to church. 63. Oh wow, I will wear a long sleeve shirt. Yes it was for Ohio and not SC. I like to roasted before I got back home to change after church!

It is my week to cook for the homeless shelter and much needs to be done before leaving here Friday morning. We are always up for a road trip though and ready to go! We are excited to see our son's new house and we are taking baby stuff to them that is here. Crossing fingers for grandchildren on the way soon.

I am so happy you got a good haircut. I think you will think your in a new home by the time your floors are completed.

Speaking of Katie's art, I ordered a small piece from her. It arrived in just a few days and is so nice ❤️ I've already got it hanging up where we can enjoy it.
