We are almost done with intruders in my home. Lots more work to be done for just us such as, decorating and cleaning things really well. We still need to buy some smaller furniture for here and there but right now I am in my room as the men are putting back my blinds. They need to move the bed back into position and other furniture. I thought I bruised my right knee when all this started two months ago but it is really aching so I think I have done some deeper damage. I think I need them there knees so will be seeing a doctor next week. I know he/she will say to lose weight. Hmmm....
My Studio is coming along really well and it is getting really exciting! I will be opening up the Bernina tomorrow and working on my Quilt Market bag that I took a class on in Dubai last week. Wow! It has been a week already!
I think I am coming down with a cold too which sucks. I finished watching the first season of Lost and the kids and I really like it! I think I will go and rent the 2nd season tonight or tomorrow.
The new Dining Room is beautiful and the pieces that I picked up for it to accessorize last week in Dubai are spot on. I am really excited.
The new TV room where my old sewing room was is also just as gorgeous! I picked this crazy couch pattern and thank God the company made matching pillows so that is a headache I don't have to worry about.
The two kids' bedrooms are exquisite. Can you believe that Ali is neater than Amal???? That continues to shock me. The rooms are really grown up and look just fabulous. Their Ikea beds are a dream too!
We only painted my bedroom and got rid of a huge desk. The space that the desk freed up will be the home of my treadmill now. Waqar won't like it but tough. There is no other place to put it and grant it, Amal doesn't want it in her room. (That is where it has been). It just won't fit in my studio.
We got the shelves reinforced in my kitchen so now my millions of cookbooks are happily back in their place and not in the cupboard! I will be getting rid of some of those too.
The shelves that are in the laundry room that house my heavy kitchenware have also been reinforced and all is organized happily now. There are some pieces that will be finding a new home there too! Oooh, now that the kids and I are in Phase 2 of South Beach, we can have bread. I will be baking some fresh wholegrain bread tomorrow with my bread machine. Who says that is not homemade? Huh!!
The men, yikes, are moving my dressing table as I type and the mirror is swaying, JMJ!! Oh, my room has blinds now instead of curtains and the new paint. Now, I have to get busy finishing the quilt that I started for this room and this bed and thank the powers that be that the paint matches the quilt! Maroon is the color.
I still need an AC in my studio which I will get next month and it is already too hot and I still need Waqar to figure out how to get me internet in there. I also need many things hung. I might not wait for that. I think I will do it myself.
I will be having lunch with my bud Nancy not this week but next week. This next week whereas I don't expect any men in my home; I will be sorting and playing. Where shall we meet Nance??
Thanks for popping by. I'll have pics later.
