I've got this insatiable urge to reorganize, rearrange, redecorate and renovate.
It all started with:
1. Rearranging the living room furniture on Sunday.
It's really hard to rearrange my living room because of several things:
- two sets of French doors - one set leading from the dining room, the other from the hallway - there go two walls.
- the door leading to the front room (aka the sun porch) - there goes another wall
- the fireplace which juts out into the room - there goes another wall.
Do you see the problem?
Ok, I'll wait...
Uh huh, there it is - that dawning realization - there isn't a wall left on which to "anchor" a piece of furniture.
All of the walls in my living room have some "obstacle. Ugh. As you can imagine there are a limited number of ways you can arrange two love seats, a TV and a rocking chair in a room like that. Tonight I'll get some photos for you of what the room looks like now.
All of this led to:
2. Big plans for my front "sun" room becoming a "craft room".
This project will involve moving a bookshelf, a desk, a filing cabinet and a twin bed.
It will most likely lead to:
- Checking the room for insulation - while the sunporch was an addition to our 86-year-old house - we aren't sure when it was added, if it was insulated. If it was insulated, it's a question of what they may have used.* Look at the address again - I live in CANADA. Yes, it does get cold in there.
- Carrying lots of things up and down the stairs
- Sewing curtains
And then, before I knew it I decided:
3. The Blog needs some freshening up.
Minou's Mommy said that my new header wasn't lame. She liked it. I count on her to be honest with me at all times - and she usually is. I'm not sure this time.
Anyone care to give constructive feedback on the new header? (Just don't use Ang's level of frankness - I can handle her "that looks stupid" b/c we've known each other for 14 years (ack - 14!). )
I haven't decided if I should take out the "here's $10" part yet.
*Many homes in the Maritimes which are close in age to ours were insulated with seaweed.
