Now hold on a minute, I don't need sympathy; today has been a really good day. In fact, I feel like a super-homemaker! But I'm exhausted. I'm just really glad that God made each day different.
Here's what was on my to-do list today:
~Make a menu for this week
~Wash the weekend accumulation of dishes
~Tidy the upstairs of the house
~Put the bathroom back together and take all the painting tools downstairs
~Sweep and mop the kitchen and dining room floors
~Vacuum the living room, bedroom, and bathroom
~Practice the piano
~Practice the flute
~Make a tasty dinner
Amazingly, I got it all done! In addition, I vacuumed the couch given to us today by my husband's office mate and rearranged the living room. Thankfully Little Man slept a lot today and was fairly good while he was awake.
Here's something cool. You know the couch I mentioned above? Not only is it comfy and in nice shape, but it also is a light tan color that coordinates with our easy chair and gliding rocking chair almost perfectly! How amazing is that?!?
I want to share a couple of pictures of our newly painted bathroom. I think its decor and color scheme is the most nearly perfect of all the rooms in my house. But that's okay since, being an imperfect person, I don't want to live in the middle of perfection.
The valance is just a long piece of green fabric (I think its rayon or silk, but I don't know since it was given to me). It looks like it has tiny moth holes in it, but I couldn't bring myself to throw it away since I loved the color. When we moved into this house, I was glad I had kept it! I just knotted and draped it over the curtain rod without even hemming the ends. It looks quite a bit different this time than it did the first time I put it up. I just couldn't get it to look right the old way, so I tried something new and liked it.
Here's an angle of our sink. I love the two coordinating flower prints. I found them at Goodwill and while I didn't strictly need them, I couldn't pass them up since they were such a perfect match.
I think I will sign off for now...yawn...and maybe I'll even go to bed early...
