I have a really big weekend planned. Not, shopping, not playing and no
traveling. This weekend I have a big project list and I am really looking
forward to tackling some of the projects that have been on the back
burner for a while.
David is in two different golf tournaments for the next three days.
For me that means I can be as involved in projects as I want without
any interruptions or meals to prepare. Woo hoo!
The first big project starts right here in my studio. I have a nice big closet
in this room with built in shelves. When we moved into this house I just
stuffed everything onto the shelves to get it out of the way but never
organized the mess. I just close the doors when I don't want to look at it,
but that's not working anymore. I want it neat and organized so that I
can actually find something for a change!!!
Don't you just hate it when you go to a craft store and pick up things you
think you need only to discover that you already have three or four and
did not need any more? Well, that's what happens to me. It's just silly.
It will be nose to the grind stone this weekend. No slacking :-)
Bentley ~ did you hear mama? Don't let her get off task!
My own Mom was a closet and drawer straightening whizz. She
was always perfectly organized. Sadly, I did not inherit that gene.
If she was here right now I could just here her say ….
Susan ~ how do you accomplish anything in this mess? How do
you even think straight???
Of course the answer to this question would be ~ I never think
straight. I have always been what is called a divergent thinker ;-)
I am also one of those who save things because you just never know when
you might need …
I think that developed that trait while I was an elementary school teacher and
we were always creating things. It's when I learned the benefits of
So, one day of this weekend will be devoted to organizing the
studio closet. But that's not all!
I inherited a big lighted hutch that is in my dining room. It's
not really my style, but I have not been able to part with it yet
because my Mom loved it. So, I am going to paint the interior
of the piece to see if I like it any better. If not, there is another
antique hutch I saw at an antique store in Houston. David
nearly choked when I told him how expensive it was and then
of course we would have to pay to have it shipped to Victoria.
So that's what I have scheduled so far. I'll see how much I
get accomplished and find out what other projects I can add.
What are y'all doing this weekend?
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
