Moving Things Around
Although this month's focus in One year to an organized life is the Kitchen, the taking down of the Christmas tree afforded opportunity in the living room, so I went for it. Gavin had expressed an interest in having a little reading area, so I moved the love seat to where the tree/train table used to be, moved the train table to where the treadmill used to be, moved the treadmill to where the party chairs used to be and moved the party chairs into an underutilized area of the garage quite near the door. Now I'm worn out!
Still, I did buy 2 pansies for my entry way and will spend time working on the foyer during the week, according to the Annual Grand Plan. I'd like to get a new rug in there - maybe get something from Target or Ikea. I'm also pondering painting the entry way, though that might be a bit much for this week, as I don't even have a color in mind. Maybe I'll repeat the 13 weeks after everything is clean and organized and focus on decorating in the second set. then I'll be ready for the holiday preparation time. Here was part of my inspiration for doing something new there, from Real Simple.
