LifestyleYesterday was Elliott's tooth cleaning day. Before he went to the vets, I had done a load of laundry and made the bed. He was home by noon acting a bit drunk. He had a couple of good naps and ate canned cat food and now thinks life is excellent. He is mad at us which is normal for him.
After I got home from taking Elliott to the vet, I dusted the bedroom and wiped down the bathroom. I emptied the dishwasher and made sure the kitchen was clean. I put the laundry into the dryer and at 10 a.m. I folded it and put most of it away. GO ME!
My sore hip is getting better. It was tired after lunch so I put some stuff on it plus the hot water bottle. I read until I fell asleep. Pain sure makes me tired. I didn't feel too bad about sleeping as the Spousal Unit fell asleep also.
SewingI hustled down to the basement to work on the sewing room in the morning. I started off in the closet and took everything out container by container. I did a bit of organizing and got it all done by 11 a.m. My big embarrassment was the tub with fabric for a shopping bag that was purchased 8.5 years ago.
I'm over half way done clearing out the room and happy I chose the worst side first. I have to tackle the other half Thursday. It won't be as hard. So far it looks like this in the family room.
And a bit more on the other side of the TV stand. I said something to the Spousal Unit about not putting it all back in and he said I would get it all back in. That means big sewing plans for this winter.
The cutting table looked like this before I got it ready to put down the sides.
That isn't bad. A UFO and some projects I want to make prior to starting the big projects.
I am thinking about how to set up the room once it is painted. I need to really get my organization thoughts into high gear. I need to find organizational solutions that will work for me in this room. I know I want this room to have:
- reading area for my chair and book case
- yarn area - tiny space that holds the cube I keep the yarn in. I need new baskets for it in grey or black rather than lime green (What was I thinking???) This is one organization item that works for me.
- Cutting area
- Ironing area for ironing board and press
- Sewing area for machines
- Desk to make jewelry on
- The stash -- the dreaded stash that needs to shrink to fit into a dresser.
I will keep thinking and reading and thinking and mulling. Something will come up. In the meantime, the vision for this room is a bit blurry and everything that I have makes me wonder if the vision will become clear. I am sure it will.
I think we are heading out today to do a few things that need to be done. Like grocery shopping and paying bills. I have to do my few cleaning things before we go.
Until the next time.....................
