Autumnal Shade of Change
Sacramento had its first rain last Friday. When I saw a real, big, splash-worthy raindrop I literally gasped (sounded like "EepWoop!) and the cats looked at me weird. The trees are still mostly green and today we are back up to 86 degrees, but for a day or two, I was blissfully pulling out my sweaters and thinking about the boots I will have to buy this year to replace my falling apart ones from last year. Oh darn. I am thinking something along these lines:
and my favorite:
The big, daunting, I-keep-thinking-about-it-but-not-actually-doing-anything-yet project is the cleaning overhaul our place needs. We live in a world of clutter and I cannot stand it much longer. I want things to have places to be organized and surfaces that are not spilling over with unopened mail (eh-hem, AM!!), beauty products haphazardly strewn about (okay, that is all me) and just random shit that seems to appear from nowhere.
I re-arranged the furniture in the bedrooms not too long ago and so the potential to make them look great is there, but it requires upkeep and neither AM or I are very good at that. I believe we can do it though. I am determined.
The downstairs remains the most important area to address. I am tired of our sad looking furniture, faded and cat-scratched beyond repair. The dingy rugs and carpet that suck the life-force out of rooms doesn't help either. SO! I am declaring WAR on the house and am going to make it cozy and clean and organized for the next season. Starting today.
Today I am going to attack the book shelves. Reorganize, dust and straighten.
Crap, this is a boring post.
Here, look at something funny:
