Welcome to Hump Day Potpourri, and to the latest tidbits from my world.
I really dislike housework and will put it off for as long as possible. And while my house looks “picked up” and somewhat orderly, it needs a deep cleaning from time to time.
So how do I make it fun? By rearranging stuff and afterwards feeling as though I’ve created a “new” room.
Yesterday I tackled the bedroom. I hadn’t done much in here for awhile. Here’s what it looked like:
It looks like a small “tweak,” but it took some pushing and shoving—after I’d taken all the stuff off the tops of things—and I had to take out the desk drawers, etc. Then there was all the vacuuming and dusting…sigh.
Here’s another view:
And a table that was previously in this part of the room is now opposite, near the exercise bike. And I swapped out the chairs.
I ended up with an extra table that is now in the garage, waiting for a new home someday in another part of the condo.
And here’s one final close-up of the desk area. The phone charger is on the desk now, and the cords are all behind and to the side of the desk: invisible, mostly.
The photographs on the walls throughout the room were taken by my eldest son when he lived in Ireland. I like the Irish feeling of this space. Note the Irish vignette atop the desk!
