I've nothing bookish to talk about (still drafting), or any authors to showcase at the moment, so instead I'll tell you about my incredibly fascinating life (haha).
I finally broke out the fire pit I got for my bday (picture evidence here) & put it together. I then discovered that I am hopeless at maintaining a fire. I think my chunks of wood were just too big, and I needed more lighter fluid. I was having trouble even getting cardboard to light! But I did have a fire going long enough to eat two s'mores and multiple burnt marshmallows, so yum-win.
I'd mentioned that we were planning on selling our house next year. Well, since then, we've had some major car problems that we took a hit on finance-wise, which caused us to take a step back and really reevaluate. So we've decided to stay put and just update as we can. And I'm happy with that. I've found I'm really looking forward to painting the entire house, as I'd forgotten how something as simple as a new coat of paint can help freshen things up.
And I've decided in the spring that I'm going to have a major garage sale and get rid of so.much.stuff. I'm excited to declutter and go w/the less is more mentality. I've decided all I want in the living room decor-wise is a large mirror & an oversized wall clock (I love those).
And speaking of decluttering, for the sake of just that, I did make a recent purchase. I bought this cart:
Because I am taking back my kitchen table!!
Every day when the hubs comes in, he dumps his gym bag on the table. And then there's all his bottles. He's big into fitness, and the table constantly stays covered in his protein powders & pills. NO MORE! This cart will be in its own designated nook & if I so much as see a dusting of protein powder...Well, it ain't gonna be pretty.
So those are my big weekend plans, putting together a cart. And maybe toasting some more marshmallows as...more than likely...there probably won't be any chocolate left for actual s'mores by the end of this week. ;)
