I haven’t been in my living room since May 2nd; that’s 6 months.
More to the point I haven’t been able to get into the living room because it has been blocked with piles of 16-foot-long trim lumber.
Finally enough of it has been dispersed so I can put the chairs back in place.
I’m still storing the shades and cushions from the dining room in plain sight in the living room. I can’t return them until the papering and painting is finished in the dining room.
Naturally everything needs a good dusting and vacuuming since it’s been sitting unused and unattended. I even removed the dolphins and shells from the mantel. It’s time for some seasonal nostalgia.
And I have made a propitious find since I decided this year to have multiple small Christmas trees. On the “free” table at church someone had left a fully decorated, snow-covered tree in an urn. I grabbed it up and plan to put it on the side porch.
I may change the balls from traditional red to something more sparkly but the lights work and it only needs a bit of reshaping.
Do you make plans and then find (or don’t find) things to make them happen?
