Yesterday I rearranged the living room. I washed the windows, too, and the heavy glass insert on the coffee table. Took that whole thing out, too, so I could clean the dust and debris and birdseed (why?) and gunk that has accumulated there for – I admit it – years. All nice and clean now!
When the kids were at home in the morning, I had them moving toys from the basement and the living room back up to their bedrooms. For a whole hour! And, strangely, I didn't have to crack the whip at Julia more than oh…twice or three times. Maybe she had caught some of my infectious energy.
I stripped and remade all the beds.
I did laundry until I ran out of laundry soap. But I'm mostly caught up.
I made three lasagnes for dinner last night. Yes, three, but don't be too impressed. Two of them were small (loaf pan sized) variations on a theme. I'll explain in another post.
The living room, though, the living room is the main thing.
Now I just would like to dig through my fabric and find something with which to make a half-length curtain – or I guess it would really be a valence, now that I think about it – to soften the look from outside.
And last night, while dinner was in the oven, Bill and I reviewed the master list of plants we're going to grow this year, seeds we need to order, and so on. We're putting in two new 4' x 4' plots as well, and doing a HUGE amount of rearranging. Very exciting stuff. We're also planning – though this is a long way off – to maintain a winter garden, primarily for herbs and salad stuff.
And I mention THAT bit of information – our gardening prep – just to say that at some point soon I'll start posting again on my little gardening site some time in the near future. In case you're interested.
I just wish we could get a couple of chickens. I really, really do.
