Had a productive day. My sister came over for awhile this morning and was a huge help with a daunting project. I have this "craft" room that had become the nightmare junk room. I couldn't even walk into it. She helped me make some hard decisions on things that needed to go - she had to walk a fine line. I am terribly sentimental and it can be hard for me to move on. I have a bunch of supplies from different crafts I have been into over the years. Recently I have been more focused on sewing so I am weeding out the others - at least to a more manageable level :) Sometimes you just need someone to keep you company and on task. I loved just having time to chat as we worked. And the "after" is so much less scary. I think I can make myself go back in there to finish.
Poor Millie had to entertain herself. Here she is sitting our bed staring out the window. It was a beautiful breezy day today so I had the a/c off and enjoyed airing out the house.
I am planning a dreaded yard sale. Am I crazy?! After the sale nothing comes back inside. Once I get it out of the way there is going to be painting. The living room and hallway are desperate for a coat of paint. They are the only areas that have not been repainted since I bought the house almost 8 years ago. I can't wait!!!
This morning's walk was good. I did my usual three miles. Did I just say usual? It wasn't too long ago that I was struggling to force myself to make it past 1.5 miles. One of my secrets is to change the route. The route we are using now is 1/2 mile to it...then two one-mile loops and a 1/2 mile back. The previous route had a much smaller loop. Every time I came around I had to convince myself to keep going...I wasn't always successful in finishing my goal. I still can't believe we get up at 4:45 a.m. every morning to get in a workout before work.
We shared Millie this morning. She started running with my husband then he passed her to me. I was relieved that she was well-behaved. It doesn't make up for her latest chewing frenzy, but it did make me happy. That pup has the craziest tongue ever.
Ugh! How is that for a red sweaty face?? I have to figure out where to look when I am taking my selfies. I think I am looking in the right place and then I see this.
Hope you had a good day :)
