My husband had a list of what he wanted to accomplish.
- Get hay.
- Clean out nesting boxes.
- Let the chickens out to free range.
- Wash the van.
There were a few other things, too, mostly chore type things and not projects. He was able to check every one of those items off and it made him see what he had accomplished. It makes him happy.
Me? I rarely make a list. For me a list is a looming thing that hangs over my head, and through the years of mothering and schooling kids, I have learned that my days need to be mostly 'fluid' and not set in stone. I do very well with fluidity.
I was teasing him about his list. I understand him and know how good it makes him feel to see the things he has accomplished at the end of a day. I told him what I got done. Painting on my bookcase, cooked breakfast, made dinner, mopped my bedroom floor, listened to good music, folded laundry. We both accomplished a lot but each in our own way.
It was a good weekend. Sunday was church and a soup and salad luncheon, with games for the afternoon. Then we headed home with some friends for a brief time. Some of our kids came over and ate pizza. Lots of talking and laughing. Emma fixed my knitting! I'm close now to decreasing! Hurrah!
I waxed and sanded the bookcase yesterday. I also tried a bit of dark wax in the detail areas on it, but I'm not sure if I like that or not.
Here it is back in the hallway with natural morning light. It makes the whole hallway brighter. It was previously the same color as the floor.
Here I have the overhead hallway light on.
A look at the dark wax. I may just paint over it, but I'm going to live with it for a while.
I am very happy with this project, and I can't wait to do my bathroom vanity!
How was your weekend?
