What litte thing...

...would really perk you up right now?

I spent $100 on a sale at the antiques mall near us in NC on Friday, replacing the cabinet between the stove and refrigerator at Jenna's. The one I had grabbed in a hurry three years ago was just ratty.

It's doors were jimmied and wouldn't shut tight, the paint was off-white, just never looked clean, stuck between the two white appliances. A fresh coat of paint wasn't going to solve much, and would have meant days of all the pantry items spread all over the place. It was bad enough doing that for thirty minutes...I am getting really put off by disruptions these days.

At the price of paint, the fresh coat wasn't going to be a freebie, either. The old one will be okay holding supplies in the glass shop, but the bright white, well-aligned doors and extra shelf I gained in this one little move just made me smile, when I got the transfer finished.

Not a big deal like a new kitchen...or Suey's whole re-done house...but,it was one little thing that made me feel good this past difficult, lousy week. Casting my eyes around this family room in NC today, thinking thirty minutes spent decluttering my book stacks will boost my spirits, too.

Bookwork for the week is already done, so no excuses for escaping the housework, until a bridal shower midafternoon. Think I will start in here, then see what else would make me feel better about this place!

What one little thing would make you smile, if you spent an hour, or even half of one, today?

Re: What litte thing...

I really can't think of any thing I should get right now.   We started moving yesterday.  My son and fiance were her and I had the football boy come help.  They moved all the big heavy stuff.    So today I'm suppose to moving food and kitchen stuff.     The phone company comes Thursday AM.  So the computer will stay here until then.   I won't be on computer as much.     One thing I'd love to get done.   I have an older computer that couldn't be updated but more importantly couldn't be backedup.   It will not back up to the USB  and I've got some pictures I'd like off of it.   Otherwise  I could junk it.    I can turn it on and print pictures  but who wants to print that many now days.     Hope  computer expert shows up here in the next 3 weeks.  I'm in almost constant company mode.   BIL and neice last weekend,    Son and fiance  this weekend,  a sister in law is due tonight through  Wed,  BIL  Friday through Sun,  another Sister in law,  our daughter and DGD  due Labor Day weekend.  

I get carpet in the American Pig room Tuesday AM.   I'll try to get pictures after then.   Still lots of stuff to be done.  Carpenter is down in his back.  He is making the bathroom cabinets.     

Better get moving.
