The mornings that I rise an hour before the sun are always the best ones.
Unless I am working at 6:30 a.m. that day.
But since I'm not working today, I am able to enjoy my morning at the pace of a snail- which, by the way, is my favorite pace of all when it comes to mornings. I know I've told you this before, but I like being able to spend about 2 hours getting ready for my day. And I like to do it alone. A French press to myself. The couch to scatter all my stuff on. Whatever music I want. But best of all- no television flailing at me. Ask Joe what my least favorite thing in the morning is...it's tv. The damn thing is always moving and flickering and people are always talking and the volume is rollercoastering all over the place. The list goes on.
But not today, people. The only pressing matter this a.m. is that I have to take the garbage out. And I do have an appointment at noon, but that's like 5 hours away.
So for now I will listen to a Cars LP, sip my third cup of ink and type away.
If you read yesterday's post, you know that I spent the better half of my day rearranging the stuff in our living room.
If I was posting last January, this is what I'd be showing you:
Icky. I am so happy that I don't have to sit in a puke green living room any longer or walk through that heart-patterned hallway ever again.
I'm also glad that my Pothos plant, Gloria, is no more.
I don't like those things, but it was my first plant ever so I didn't know.
That shelf display didn't last long, either. It was changed to this last spring and stayed that way for quite some time:
While I did like that set up for awhile, it was becoming a bit too chaotic for my current liking.
And so yesterday I did this:
Which turned into this:
Much better. I'm not sold on the bottom right side with the 2 vases & the bee linoleum block and I think I'm going to change it today, but I do still like it a lot.
Do you find that you tend to rearrange your things at certain times of the year?
My times seem to be January and then again around May or so.
Although sometimes I re-do small areas throughout the year, these are my overhaul times.
Alright, well my 2 hours is soon to expire and I want to hit up a few blogs, so off I go. Thanks for stopping by! See you soon.
