I went to bed Saturday night feeling pretty run down and I woke up Sunday morning feeling terrible. I laid around all day, in bed mostly, and watched movies. And I have to be really sick to do that. Fortunately, our family doctor goes to our church, so my husband was able to get an antibiotic for me to take right away. I woke up this morning feeling better and after a second round of antibiotics and some cold & flu medicine, I am a new woman.
I started working on the Christmas decor in my living room. Would you believe it took me almost all day to decorate the tree and about 3/4 of my living room? That’s some serious holiday decorating! I was multitasking a bit, though. I sorted the holiday bins and cleaned my office, plus I was making most things from scratch, so it wasn’t as easy as just putting up the decor from last year. I kept running outside to clip some more sprigs from the ceder at the side of our house. It was slow going, but really fun to take some time to work on my house. It was one of those days, though, that I worked and worked and never snapped a picture. I can’t wait to snap some tomorrow and share how the living room is looking.
The next few weeks are going to be crazy. My parents are coming up in a couple of days to celebrate Christmas with us and help with all of the projects we have going on…of course. We have a big photo shoot coming up in January and I have to get some things ready to photograph for the book, so the project list is pretty long and overwhelming. I need to get the place cleaned and decked out for Christmas, plus we need to finish the built-ins, finish the bathroom and on it goes. Mini and I are actually going to paint my bedroom walls and ceiling tomorrow. Yes, again. I think this is the sixth time this room has been painted in five years. I just can’t finish this room! I’ve decided to paint the walls white and the ceiling light blue. I told my mom I thought that would be pretty safe for the long term and she just laughed. Oh, she knows me so well. Anyway, that’s the plan and I’m sticking with it.
So, there’s my day in a nutshell. All talk. No pictures today.
