Yes, it’s been a while. I’ve had so much to write about, but honestly have been so busy I’ve hardly spent any time at all at the computer, which, I suppose, is a blessing! I feel we all, as a society, spend too much time engrossed in technology, but that is another rant entirely, and probably another post one day.
For now, what have I been up to? Well, in the weeks prior to Christmas there was much complaining in this house about the state of the garage. From me. I wanted, desperately to clean up the house, but with a house so full of clutter I need somewhere to put it all. So I started cleaning out the garage. We built some new storage and it’s pretty organized in there now. We can actually put the car in the garage too, which is almost unheard of!!
Then the big clean up started and it’s currently still ongoing. We ripped the laundry room to pieces. See pictures. It’s still a work in progress and I’ll post more pictures once the shelving is up.
… and this was just the beginning.
Two weeks ago, my husband went away on business to DC and I decided to surprise him with a new bed….. made by my very own hands!
I used plans from http://ana-white.com for her Kingsize Farmhouse Bed and I am soooo pleased with the result! I absolutely hated my bedroom before, and now I love it….
I also made my own quilt for it from scraps of my favourite fabrics I’ve kept over the years and matching bedside tables. Excuse the revolting carpet, it came with the house and we’ve not gotten around to putting in the new floors in this room yet. It’ll happen soon!!
So, that’s where I’m at! I’m still in the midst of major cleaning and decluttering. I did the cupboard under the sink this afternoon and have been catching up on laundry and piling up stuff for Goodwill. It’s an ongoing process that will hopefully not go on forever!!
Thanks for reading!
