Hope that everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday weekend. We spent the weekend at the lake, but came into town for a wedding shower and high school graduation. The weather here was typical for memorial day weekend. Rain and cold one day, sun and warm the next. Saturday the heat was on at the cabin and Monday the windows were wide open to catch the wonderful breeze. I got the binding sewn down on a large quilt and that was a nice thing to cross off the list. Otherwise we spent the time there working on a few little projects we wanted to get done. Ms Cami was wiped out when we came home yesterday. Way to many things to keep track of during the weekend. She LOVES to snuggle in beside us in the recliner, not the most comfortable for us but it works for her.
Today I'm looking for inspiration in some of my decorating books (cripes I have a lot of them) and my magazines. This is off the subject but I think I have an addiction to magazines. YIKES they pile up, I go through them and tear out what I want and either forward them to someone or toss out. The pile is small and then before I know it BIG pile of magazines again. Anyone else have that addiction. So anyway I'm looking through the books and magazines for some ideas on tweaking some of the rooms in the farmhouse and even out at the lake. I have a lot of stuff here at home that I can re-use in a different way or just get out of the closet and use period. How do you get inspired?
The footings were poured for the porch on Friday. Today is really looking like rain and so I'm guessing they won't be stopping by for work. I should go out today and see what the local stores have for furniture for the porch. I want something with cushions that can be taken off and stored in a bench that we will have in the porch to keep them from getting wet when it rains. And you know that hubs will want it to be comfortable and not just looking good, lol.
Update on the couch, the furniture store is backing the problem and taking care of getting more fabric and having the skirt replaced.
I've noticed on several blogs I visit that they always end their posts with gratitude's. I've tried to do that everyday (but it doesn't always work) but now I'm going to put them in writing here.
Gratitude's for Tuesday:
A morning walk with a friend
Great weekend with hubs
Hearing the birds sing outside
