House – getting party ready
Countdown to Zoe day; T-4
I don’t know about anyone else out there but sometimes my life feels like a “give a mouse a cookie” book. There is even a mom version “If you give a mom a coffee” … but for those who don’t know the format it is a chain of activity type of book that one activity leads to another and another and none of them seem to get qute done on the way but they always resolve with “and then the mom will need a coffee”. I am quite fine with multitasking – I put in the laundry and on the way back up take the dishes and while I’m in the kitchen I start the coffee and while the coffee drips I serve the breakfast and while they are pinned down with breakfast I brush their hair etc. The not so good part is when it involves starting and finishing a project because between those two ends are a million other actions and only a fraction have to do with the project…
However! The fun side to often being in the middle of many things is there are rare days when you actually finish a whole bunch of them. The stars align and finishing happens! Today is that day 🙂
- I finally got 2 pieces of art hung
- I finished this jewerly project where I reused an old mirror frame (gift from my grandparents) to hold a bunch of my jewerly in a pretty way
- Got the curtains done (enough) – this project had me finding fabric, bending pipe to make the rod, and mounting the whole thing to the celing and than sewing the curtains and putting the all together and up.
I also did a ton of other things today, no day is whithout a ton of things, but those make me happy to have them done!
I’ve also decided that Zoe’s birthday can’t be outside this weekend. It will be sunny but cool so a few games outside but most inside. Works for me, just turns my decorating decisions in a different direction and I’m fine with NOT hauling out all the chairs etc to the lawn for a garden party!
Thats today so far. I’m hopeful to get a few other projects started and finished today (Ha!) but since the house was ‘party ready’ 2 weeks ago I don’t have too much to tackle this week.
