It’s 4:30am and I’m awake because my children love to wake me up around 3AM and then they go back to sleep leaving me wide awake. So I thought I’d write a post about the randomness that is happening right now in our lives. There are currently candy wrappers all over our house, thanks to Halloween. Thank goodness most of it is almost gone because it drives me nuts! Why do little boys NOT know what a trash can is for?
We had a nice little fall break. I finally got my front porch steps painted and I love them. My hubby built them for me back in the summer and it’s taken me this long to paint them. I’ve also been caught up in a good book this week. I love to read but I don’t get a chance to read as much as I’d like. I get sucked in and I don’t want to do anything else! Plus, I get a little sad when it’s over. I’ve been reading by The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman. If you’ve never read one of her books, I recommend you do that soon. She is the author of Pactical Magic, which was made into a movie with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. Her books are darkly romantic and usually have a little (or a lot of) magic involved. She has been one of my favorites since I read her book Here On Earth and decided to name one of my children Hollis. Years later, I met my husband who wasn’t real keen on naming a boy Hollis. Oh, well…
In even more exciting news, I’ve been saving up a little money for a kitchen makeover. I’m calling it a Makeover and not a remodel, because nothing is being moved around, just bringing it out of the 90’s and into this decade. I have already made several purchases, but I had to order the sink I wanted and it won’t be in for a few weeks. Because of that I’m not exactly sure of the time frame of this, but I’d like it finished by Thanksgiving. (Not that I cook, but I want it done before I pull out the Christmas decorations). In the mean time, I’ll just keep looking at my inspiration board I put together. Sigh….
Happy Thursday, y’all!
