Make that workS in progress. I realized today (as I started eyeing our huge windows in major need of cleaning on the outside) that I am working on a lot of different things right now. And every day I can usually think of at least one more thing that I want to do THAT DAY with our sweet little apartment. Often times, I do tackle the short little projects that I can't WAIT to get my hands on in the midst of larger projects. But lately, I have started doing larger projects during larger projects. What am I thinking? Need some examples/reminders? Read on...
- The oh-so-stunning curtains. One panel down--seven to go. Make that 1 1/2 down. I just ran out of thread, and since I recently decided to go with the softer side of things instead of the stark charcoal, I don't think the black thread that I have is gonna work anymore. But, I am definitely getting more thread in the morning so I can keep this train rolling. I know as soon as I stop, I won't have curtains until spring--not gonna let that happen. I plan to have them done sometime next week. My windows will surely want me for their Valentine.
- Our painting project. Yesterday afternoon, I got the entire hallway cut in and trimmed. And THEN I ran out of paint. Instead of running right out and getting a quart to finish the job, I cleaned my house because my mama was coming. (Yes, she is here!!! Just overnight and we're loving the visit.) So, not sure when this will get done, but surely soon--because how long can I really look at that? Not long.
- Oh yeah, and then there is the oil painting that I am working on for our bedroom. I'm almost certainly officially painting over it. Even though I never finished it, it is a little pastel for my taste. But, I won't be working on this anymore until we get paint on the walls in our bedroom because I don't want a painting to dictate which color we choose, ya know? However, once we do splash some pigment on those walls, This will become a priority on my "large projects" list.
- Lastly, we still haven't set our clock back in the bathroom from daylight savings time! Don't worry, you didn't miss it--I am referring to the one back in November. We have made a habit of just subtracting an hour instead of taking 30 seconds to change it. I don't know why this has become such a large task. Ha!
So, that's the "larger projects" list, and although I have a bunch more in my mind right now, I just can't add anymore to the list until I complete these. Smaller projects will always come up and I will most definitely tackle them as I wish, but I don't think our apartment can handle one more area of chaos. Although, there's no guarantee I won't try. :)
