I don’t now about you, but when I am home too long, I start getting ideas. I look around the house to see what new project I can start. Though I should not say that “I” can start, more like “we” can start. My poor husband. He looks at me with confusion when I say projects. It is with confusion, because he thinks I am confused for saying it. Maybe I should call it Spring cleaning.
Some of us like to freshen the house up every Spring. I am not talking about buying everything new. I am talking about cleaning, and looking at rooms in the house that need fixed. Okay, it is a project, but it depends on how you look at it. It could be a small or big project depending on how much is spent. We cannot spend a lot because our daughters wedding which was pushed into late summer because of this virus, but that is another story. I am the frugal one in the house. I like to have things nice, but do not need the best of the best.
As I look online at different stores (since I cannot go in them) I see all these ideas. I don’t know about you but this is difficult. I like to walk into stores, feel the texture of things and see the colors up close. This bit of looking online doesn’t fit well with me. So I wait.
Absolutely beautiful, but cannot afford it.
My bathroom needs to come to life. I love this picture above, but too much money. So I dream. I’m sure if I look hard and long enough I will find something relatively the same. Plus, who is going in there other than me and my husband? Nobody! I will stick to the simpler things in life and the things we can afford. Nothing wrong with looking. I do that a lot.
Maybe I will paint a room or buy throw pillows. Either one always spruces up a room and makes it look better. Then I can add some fresh flowers and make the house smell good. I don’t know about you, but this whole project thing is making me feel better. My list might be getting longer the more I sit and think. Not looking good for hubby.
Whatever type of project or spring cleaning you do, I hope that you find joy in it. These are hard times for all of us and I hope that a little freshen up of some kind will bring a smile to your face.
Be safe and stay healthy
