Still Moving Slowly

I hope you are all well and busy with your lives. Believe it or not, I'm still moving on the slow side. I can't honestly say I'm still sick, but I'm sure not 100%. My appetite still hasn't returned (which is a very good thing) but I'm craving something very comforting - maybe pumpkin muffins filled with cream cheese and a nice cup of coffee.

Yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon at Alissa's house helping make their home a little more organized. I love organizing things - especially other people's - and am quite good at it. It's actually something I'd enjoy doing professionally!

Laura and Alissa's home is tiny, but there is space to be utilized. I made some shelves for the small coat closet and left enough space for her vacuum cleaner to be stashed in there. Before, it was always having to sit out in the floor somewhere.

Years ago, I bought Laura a beautiful swan from TJMAxx for $12. I've never seen one before or since and would love to have one myself. Sometimes there is a potted plant sitting in it but most of the time it sits empty. When I ran across this picture on a blog the other night, I knew immediately I was going to do the same thing with her pretty swan. I didn't have my camera so couldn't take a picture of hers, but you can get the idea. Hers is very similar and is setting on her hearth in front of her fireplace and looks gorgeous!!

I even had some pretty fall ribbon that I bought on clearance years ago and have never used. Her swan can still use a few more pretties, but at least she has something pretty on the hearth now. I've got several fall silk things I can add to it the next time I go up there.

Today I was home and decided to repair something I broke a few years ago. That led to straightening up my craft/computer room, which had gotten out of control again. It's in much better shape now except for my table that has photos laying all over it. I love all my crafty stuff and want to get back into it soon.

Other than that, I didn't get much accomplished today. Well, I did sandwich my crow wall hanging together. Now I need to decide how to quilt it. Fall will be over by the time I get it bound the rate I'm going.

No word on the interview results and am once again I am trying to figure out what path to take regarding earning an income.

I hope you all have a nice evening...

Hoping you feel better soon, and that you hear back from the interview!

Hi Phyllis, sorry to hear you aren't feeling 100% yet. That's crummy for sure. Maybe you need to call someone about the job you interviewed before. Sometimes you gotta put your face back out there to let them know you are really interested. Did they say when they would have a decision? I wish you could come organize my place. Every single space needs to be purged, organized and spiffied up. I need to clean house and just keep putting it off. Not my favorite thing to do. You are like me when it comes to feeling like we haven't done much. When I say that to people and then tell them what my day was like, they always say it sure sounds like a lot to them. :) Hope you are having a fabulous Friday. Wishing you all the best. Tammy
