I wondered...to post or not to post. It is Monday. I post every day of the week excluding Saturday and Sunday. But today is Labor Day. Does that really make a difference? Heck no! My brain is on overload with projects, rearranging, redecorating, an upcoming shop, a really cool announcement, etc, etc, etc...
As a person with undiagnosed ADD, but really & truly know I have it, my head is spinning and I am going in all directions. So where to begin? I decided I had to start rearranging the house. I am knocking out a wall this coming Saturday to make an extension of the kitchen. Will it really be part of the kitchen? Um, let's just say I'm calling it Cindy's nook. You know how some have a breakfast nook? Well, I don't need one. What I need is an area that is my library, displays my vintage clothing, holds my big old wicker chairs, and allows me to be me. When the weather is beautiful, I have the great outdoors to be me. When winter hits, I need a warm and cozy place to be inspired.
I also need a craft room. Thank goodness for having bedrooms that no longer need to serve that purpose. So I chose one this weekend to be the area to create messes in. And it is no coincidence it is the last room down the hall. And there is another room that is not serving us well here at Lakewood. It is the tiny room that barely holds Tool Man's computer. I want that as a big closet for storage. I think he is okay with that. He said he would help move his things. Such a good man!
So here I am pushing and shoving, and shoving and pushing everything in the house to a new location. I don't have anything better to do! When I'm done I'll have a new nook for me, a storage closet, and a craft room. I'm a person who has to have some organization in order to function. Then I'll be able to work on those projects, I will be able to redecorate my home, I will be able to open my shop, and I will be ready for that big announcement. Life at Lakewood is good.
So it's Monday again. And it is Labor Day...in more ways than one.
Living it up at Lakewood,
