We were busy today
We were busy for us, that is. I find that as I get older, it takes less and less to seem like a day's work.T
This was my night stand early this morning. You might not believe this, but that is much better than it sometimes is. Sometimes the books are piled four high on the top and the bed steps below are just useless for getting into the bed. I decided to clean.
I started with the drawer which was a hodgepodge of all sorts of things. If I can keep from filling this up again, I think this is good. Handkerchiefs, eye shades, shea butter, pills, reading light and extra glasses, foot files and smoothers, and bookmarks. Not bad.
Here it is after I finished. Extra magazines dealt with, books ready to read (on bottom step) iPad(red) sketchbooks, thirsty stone for my water and/or coffee cup, lip balm, and the ever handy flashlight to check the clock when I awake at unreasonable hours. Our bedroom, by the way, is pink.
It isn't as ugly as I feared but not too good looking either. The square can be replaced when it is too hot or too cold outside. Dean will add trim and it will have a finished look when it is replaced. In the spring and fall, though, and on cool nights, the fan is much cheaper to run and makes the house very comfortable. With the windows open I can hear the trains and the night sounds and I like that.
