During the week, I fantasize about doing something productive on Saturday in my house, but then Saturday comes, and I really don’t want to do anything.
But this time, I DID do something! I finally straightened and organized my closet!
I took the “before” pictures at the beginning of August. Ha! I got the dresser back then and started using it, but didn’t do the rest of the organizing.
So here’s the process:
I got everything off the shelves! It looks so clean. I hung a shop light on the wall inside the closet, so I don’t use the floor lamp any more. And the closet was the perfect place for the picture of my iris.
My final pool improvement has started…. I’m getting a heater!
I know it sounds a little weird to be getting a pool heater in Southern California, but my pool is consistently cold. Maybe it was built on top of a pet cemetery or something…
Anyway, the new heater requires a new gas line. They started on the line yesterday. It just looks like a trench to me. There is supposed to be some more work today.
Should I have waited to post about this until I had more information? Maybe, but yesterday was my first day of school, and in all the excitement, I forgot to take any pictures. School went well though. I’m looking forward to more (and normal) classroom time today. I want to establish my new routine. I like routines.
The living room is painted! I got things back in order, and the new paint is dry. Here are the “before” and “after” pictures:
So this seems to happen to me a lot. I choose a color I really like. I put samples on the wall. I live with it for a while. Then I paint the whole room. And the paint looks different. This paint is more blue than I was expecting. It even looks a little on the purple side. Ugh.
I do at least like that it’s lighter in the room now. But I think I might be re-painting. If I do, it’s going to be a while. I have school stuff to do now.
I have big plans for the next couple of weeks. They are supposed to be my not-school-or-church-projects days. I made a list. It is a little intimidating, but it’s also kind of exciting. I have been waiting to do some of these things for months.
Yesterday I thought I would paint, which will be a huge job. Instead, I used the power of positive procrastination to do a few smaller things on the list.
I unpacked my suitcase finally. Bruno helped me:
I moved the hand towel rack in the hallway bathroom. Bruno helped me:
I put door handles in the sliding door to the master bathroom. Bruno didn’t help me. He was scared of the jigsaw.
