Taking a Personal Day

I started today with the best of intentions for getting a lot of work done. After all, there are orders to be packed, new items to be listed on etsy, website pictures to update, supplies to be ordered, soap to make...  Not to mention the small mountain of laundry.

But, as it turns out, my lingering urge to paint my dining room table (which up to this point has been twarted by my lack of paint) crystalized into a full-blown project upon realizing that the leftover wall paint from re-doing the kitchen might just be the perfect gentle off white that I was looking for. Bingo! An hour later, I had my white table. (Pictures coming soon)

But as always, one decorating thing leads to another... And so, my entire morning and early afternoon was spent painting, rehanging pictures, moving unwanted chairs to the basement, swapping things like yellowware bowls and ironstone pitchers between the kitchen and china cabinet, and to top it all off, unloading the hundreds of books from our bookshelves in order to shove them a foot and a half to the left.  For me, a very fun morning :)

Now it's off to more practical things, like packing the 3 etsy orders that came in today...

...and turning that laundry mountain into a small hill, at the very least.

Enjoy your weekend!
