It seems like forever since last Friday, but guess what? It's rolled around again, and it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? Let's get started!
This week has been dedicated to getting things in order at our new home. Granted, I've been doing that while battling a cold - why do we always seem to get colds at the most inopportune times? But I have made some headway in the process.
First off, I moved some furniture around up in my sewing studio...
We have had a ridiculous amount of rain this week, which has caused some pretty significant flooding - so significant that they have closed school early one day and kept it closed the next. My eldest granddaughter wanted to earn some spending money for a field trip, so I offered to pay her to help me do some things around the house. As you can see, she really got into it, helping me re-assemble my large Kallax shelves...
She's pretty proud of herself, and she should be! It was hard work getting those back together, and it weighs a ton - but together we pulled it all together and got it in place. She's a good hard worker!
Then she got to do what she called the fun part - unpacking my fabric and organizing it on the shelves by color. She fussed at me because I had too much pink (how in the world can you have granddaughters and have too much pink?) and it's maybe not exactly how I would organize the fabric, but it's possible that having it arranged differently will bring new pieces and new possibilities to the forefront! There's still lots to do in the studio, but it is starting to come together - I can't wait to get to work in it!
Downstairs, we ordered some new barstools for the counter, and I put them together. I love Amazon! I really like these stools, and they are super comfortable. They're also much more our style than the ones the former owners left behind.
I've also started putting up pictures, which really helps the place feel more like home. There are still lots more to be put up, but it's nice to have it started!
And although she's not very happy about it, I took our border collie Fly to a new groomer this week, who de-skunkified her, brushed her out and cleaned her up - she looks GORGEOUS!! I was so impressed that they actually brushed her instead of just going immediately to shaving her, which is what has happened with other groomers in the past. Hopefully now that she's older, she won't be quite so "nippy" when I brush her, and we can keep her well-groomed!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you,
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
