Life is a Stage
I am in the throws of staging our little cottage in New England, as we are hoping to move soon. As I am trying to be more of an optimist this year, I am not going to be thrown off by this morning's news that we probably will not be moving this Spring. 2010 is STILL right around the corner. And we WILL be moving then. (Well, 2009 surprised me, so I'm not going to get lazy thinking this year is going to last any longer than any other year.) There is still a lot to do. And I've done a lot already.
I just finished the dining room with new valances, cell blinds, wall bling, and a little rearranging and decluttering. I'm in the midst of consolidating the girls' room with the playroom, plus creating some colorful map art coordinated with the word "All Things Bright and Beautiful/All Creatures Great and Small". (I know, I love the hymns!) I've also started putting new vinyl down in the bathroom, because the old stuff had to go...I'll post pictures soon.
We'll have to reassess my frenzied pace to stage this place. But in the meantime, here's to making the most of what you've got. Bloom where you are planted! (Speaking of planting, I am so ready to start planning my garden...a field of sunflowers, raised beds full of tomatoes, herbs galore, onions and leeks, garlic, bok choy and spinach and I would love to have some chickens and a goat. I wish we were moving to California this year! But maybe it'll have to happen here next to our little cottage.)
