Maybe DH will start filling his bookshelves with books today, or maybe he will be the one who chooses to rest. See my mom's hooked rug she made years ago in front of the fireplace? It looks very nice on the wood floors. That little pillow on the gold chair has a Mary Englebert girl saying: "I'm In Charge!" I like that garage sale find!
This little basket of dolls will reside in my bedroom for my grand daughter to find the next time they come to visit. While making my bed with fresh linens today I found myself moving the bed to an angle in the corner. Feng Shui? Something different and cute.
I love our new laminate stairs. I am walking barefoot in the house. (I always have). The laminate guy said foot oil was not great for the floors. My girlfriend Patty said it's okay. Do you have an opinion?
Tomorrow the plumber will come and install the two new toilets in the guest and master bathrooms! About time!!! Do NOT ask me what he charges an hour, you do not want to know!
Yesterday I unpacked and shelved all these books in our combination "library" and workout room. We have four pieces of equipment we use on occasion. I mostly use the treadmill, but now that the exercise bike is up there (and NOT in the entryway/living room anymore!!!) I may use it too. I also use the weight bench and bar. DH uses the Nordic track and bike. All but the treadmill were purchased used at garage sales over the years! Good deals too. We've had the treadmill for 20 years and it's still going strong so it was worth the investment.
Just so you know I did rest a bit today between putting away some things. I had some hammock time with the Sunday papers and a popcycle. So nice. When ever I hang out in the hammock I feel like I am on a vacation. It revives memories from when I was 19 and spent three months in Mexico and part of that time I slept in a hammock on the beach under a thatched roof by the ocean. I think the cells in my body retain those wonderful memories and I feel it all over again when I am in my own back yard hammock! @@@@@@ Henry has found another hiding place. This is a kitchen cupboard and happens to be the shelf where I keep cloth table cloths and napkins. He can open the cupboard door and goes in, lets the door close behind him and stays there to sleep I guess. Now I will have to be sure to remember to wash the linens before serving dinner to guests! ;-)
