Wow, how did it get to be Thursday already?
Yesterday Teri came over. She’s still hobbling and limping, just like I am. The difference is she doesn’t have a walking boot.
Together we hobbled around and got the basic blueprint of my office decided upon.
The room is currently in the rough stages. But at least now we know what direction we’re going.
How I Figure Out A Decorating Plan:
I like to get most of the furniture arranged. And in this case, there isn’t a lot at this point.
Then I like to mull it over. Once the process of where to put the furniture has been decided, then the rest will come to me.
I like to walk to the doorway and absorb what’s been done. After a few days, the plan typically gels in my mind.
For me, it’s important to give myself that time before I just jump in. I like to let ideas swirl around in my head for a while.
What the room needs next will gradually make itself clear to me.
What To Do With Files:
Right now it needs the clutter gone. The movers apparently broke one roller off my filing cabinet, which was just about ready for the trash heap anyway.
Next, I’ll need to go back through the files and try to pare them down. I already did this once before I moved. But now I need to do it again.
I bought a big blue woven box with this in mind, and I’m hoping the most important files I need to keep will fit in there. If they don’t fit, I’ll figure out something else.
Kitchen Scrub Brush:
See the little kitchen scrub brush I found on Amazon? I thought it was so cute. You can find it here if you want to check it out.
Sometimes it’s the little things in a kitchen that give it personality.
The pain in my ankle and hip was excruciating yesterday. I broke down and took a pain pill my ankle doctor prescribed for me last week, Meloxicam. And it didn’t seem to help at all.
I have PT this morning and I’m going to talk to Holly about this.
My prayer plant is doing well after I placed it here about four or so feet from the window behind my chair.
I’m trying very hard not to overwater the house plants because that is my tendency.
Yesterday it was nice outside so I sat on my patio while Teri spray-painted some of the items for my office. She’s a MUCH better painter than I am.
Oh, and my taxes are taken care of until next year. Thank goodness.
