My to do list... did it get done?

So, yesterday morning I got up at the unbelievable hour of 8 O'clock and made myself a list of things that needed to be done. Then I promptly went back to bed. 9 rolled around and I got up and ambitiously did nothing on my list. However, my "nothing" turned out to be exactly what I really wanted to do.

Since the weather has turned colder I have wanted to rearrange the furniture in our living room. We have gas fireplace that we haven't used yet and up until yesterday our very large couch was in front of it. It made sense to do it that way since we weren't in need of additional warmth during the Summer. Now that there's a chill in the air and frost on the ground I can thing of nothing better than curling up in front of the fireplace with a good book. I quickly recruited David to be the muscles and we have a cheap remodel of the house. Gotta love what a little move of the furniture does for ya!

Our new look complete with the man with the muscles.

The fireplace... in case you couldn't tell.

And if that wasn't enough for the day, we decided to clean up the garage! Not entirely our fault that it was in such a state. Our landlord had some shelves that he planned on taking with him, but just never did. So I David asked what he planned for them and low and behold they had been sitting in the garage unused since March for nothing. Up they went and up off of the floor our stuff went! It used to be in a pile in the corner and surrounding the car on one side so you couldn't open the door all the way. It looks so good now that we had to keep on taking a look during the day cause it just looked so nice! Hopefully we can keep it that way.

Here's to a hard day's work.


  1. Congrats on a day well spent even if it wasn't the way you thought it would be :) We just rearranged our living room too (and by "we" I mean I- I got bored of the same ol' same ol') There must be something in the air here that says it's time to snuggle in for a long winter's nap--or a cozy read by the fireplace. Funny how it happens every fall and spring.
