something happens inside you when you finish a project that's been undone for awhile. something wonderful! mark and I experienced this feeling over and over again this weekend!
we started saturday with a very long to-do list. mark looked a bit like a deer in the headlights when I shared the list. I'm sure whatever he was thinking was on the agenda for saturday didn't look like this...
first on the list...the post office to mail out lots of correspondence.
our home projects started in spencer's room by washing windows and adding new blinds.
once the bed was pulled out, the worn carpet was history.
and once the carpet was gone, we could move the bed...which lead to a total room makeover...
including a new art showcase wall.
next up? connor's room.
mark replaced the missing molding piece (that I swept up with the sweeper...ooops!),
and I touched up the paint.a good closet clean out and both boys are set for the start of school.
my laundry baskets which were full to the brim were emptied.and the hall closet had a big purge. watch those expiration dates!
on sunday, as part of my relaxing and recharging, I finished my knitting santa cross-stitch,
packed connor and I for our trip,
and forced myself to learn how to make button holes, so progress could be made on my february lady sweater. look-I did it!!
"don't you wish every saturday could be this productive?" I said. "what? I think it would kill me!" was mark's response. okay, so I'll take this one good work day. he blessed me with his time, his skills, and his patience. and I couldn't be happier about all we accomplished.
so in the end, something wonderful happened.
